BVas

From FreeSpace Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The BVas is a heavy beam cannon used by the Vasudans in FreeSpace 2. Three of these form the main anti-capital ship capabilities of the Hatshepsut-class destroyer and a single BVas is outfitted onto older Typhon-class destroyers still serving the GTVA during the NTF Rebellion and Second Shivan Incursion. The BVas is the most powerful beam cannon ever made by the Vasudans and is very similar to the BGreen in every respect.

The statistics don't show it but the BVas actually does marginally more damage a minute than the BGreen; it is a highly effective weapon.


Calculations point out that this weapon has a yield equivalent to approximately 34.6 GT (Gigatons of TNT) per pulse.
