Tech Room Description
The GTB Surt was rushed into service after the return of the Shivans in 2364. Anticpating a long and bloody war, the prototype bomber was readied for action, but never deployed due to the premature end of the war with the destruction of Capella. The Surt differs from conventional bombers by being designed to fire custom shells at an incredible speed. Built to carry this weapon, known as the 'railgun', the Surt uses an advanced accelerator ring, mounted under the main body of the ship, to propel uranium tipped explosive shells. These shells can inflict massive damage on enemy capital ships, but prevent the use of conventional bombs. They also require massive cooling for the ships reactor.
The remaining Surt bombers are currently used by the elite 192nd Bomber Wing - the Black Cats - where they have seen intensive use. It is expected a Vasudan developed counterpart will eventually replace these craft.
