The GTB Boanerges is a Terran heavy bomber that was brought into active service sometime before the Second Shivan Incursion. While lacking in maneuverability and speed, the Boanerges possesses a remarkably large secondary capacity.

FS2 Tech Room Description
The new GTB Boanerges has been assigned to elite bomber squadrons in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th Terran battle groups. The challenge of maintaining an aging fleet has motivated the GTVA to develop a new generation of ships able to withstand long-term abuse in the field. By maximizing shielding and payload (while offering enough maneuverability to make it a viable tactical unit), the Boanerges promises to remain in service for decades to come. One test pilot observed that the Boanerges handles better than any other bomber and has enough firepower to make it a formidable anti-capship weapon.
In the Christian religion, Boanerges is the Greek rendition of the names James and John, two brothers that are surnamed by Jesus Christ for their impetuosity, hence the literal meaning of the surname Jesus gave them, "Sons of Thunder".
