The GTB Hydra


Derelict Tech Room Description

The GTB Hydra is the latest in the development of the Artemis bomber series. Borrowing much from the lessons learned from the DH variant, the Hydra is both faster and more maneuverable than either of its earlier counterparts. In many ways, the Hydra is a true fighter bomber. Although it lacks in gun mount capacity, this ship has now been modified so that it can carry the powerful UD-8 Kayser. Given its multirole capacity, GTVA command expects that the Hydra will be put into general use in the near future.

Although the Hydra is equipped to handle the lethal Kayser gun, it doesn't really have the energy to use the weapon for more than a few bursts at a time. It does have larger missle banks, however.

The original Derelict release used a reskinned Artemis for the Hydra. The reskin was removed from the SCP re-release.
