GTCv Eurynome

Description:

Shadow Genesis - Tech Description:

Gaining lessons from Capella Incident, Security Council decided to introduce several new classes to terran fleets and vasudan battlegroups. Akheton Corporation designed the Nekhbet as offensive tool of choice of Vasudan Empire. A younger terran equivalent Eurynome was introduced a few months later as warship focused more on precision strikes rather than on raw firepower. While Nekhbet was designed purely to inflict tremendous damage from it's three spinal beam cannons, vasudan heavy corvette offers zero utility beyond raw firepower. Terran approach to the problem of strike corvette featured an idea of multi-task, mobile unit with extended anti-bomber weaponry. First draft of the Eurynome quickly become one of the most successful designs ever produced by terran manufacters. First warship based directly on famous Deimos corvette, the Eurynome was designed to succeed where Deimos failed.

Alrough both corvettes sharing strong anti-fighter screen, Deimos was somewhat lacking siege potential. Frontal section of the Eurynome was designed around two heavy slash beam cannons. While Nekhbet was designed to inflict puncture damage, ultimate goal of the Eurynome was designing a medium-sized warship with outstanding area on effect splash damage to strip down it's target from turrets and crucial subsystems. Lack of puncture beam cannons was justified by three Venom LRST missile launchers, able to inflict minor damage and take down main weaponry of the target before Eurynome is in range of her two main and two secondary beam cannons. Alrough Eurynome was mostly inspired by shivan Ravana destroyer, designers featured small hangarbay inspirated by Moloch corvettes. Another notable feature is the most up-to-date jump drive with precision jump capacity.

Eurynome has also one advantage compared to Nekhbet. Vasudan heavy corvette despite being formidable enfroncer, requires fighter assistance or protection of anti-fighter cruisers. Eurynome with her excellent point defences is able to operate alone, or protect the flanks of bigger vessel like Boreas class destroyer. Almost three dozens of Eurynome class corvettes were produced so far. Five newest vessels of this class - GTCv Brenner, GTCv Blitzkrieg, GTCv Lateralus, GTCv Endymion and GTCv Isonomia were recently introduced into 6th Fleet of Herschel.

Developer Notes

Turrets 05, 06 and 07 have firing angle of 270 degrees. It means they can fire torpedoes even if the target is on the other side of the ship. If you want to use it, make sure you tabled proper torpedoes with larger rotation time and free flight time to avoid your torpedoes hitting corvette itself.

Weapons of relesed version don't reflect final setup from Shadow Genesis.
