The GTD Atropos is an advanced destroyer that appears in Twist of Fate as a successor to the GTD Orion. While the Atropos cannot focus as much firepower on a single target as a beam-refit Orion, it has better point defense and is all-around a more effective warship.

The current model itself is a reworked version of the EAD Ryujin from Inferno SCP, which itself is derive from Over the Top's ITD Ryujin.

Description:

Released Version Tech Room Description

Building on lessons learned from the Hecate line of destroyers, the Atropos combines the anti-fighter capabilities of the Hecate with a more robust anti-capital armament. While not as devastatingly powerful in a broadside as the Orion, the Atropos is far more capable of defending itself. New warships like the GTD Kitchener of the Terran 4th fleet have demonstrated the strength of this design in anti-insurgency campaigns.

Twist of Fate Tech Room Description

When the Vasudans rolled out their Hatshepsut destroyers, our Orion-class destroyers were so outmatched that development of their replacement was immediately accelerated. The Atropos class of destroyers enters service in the GTA with the express purpose of one-upping the Hatshepsut. In this, it succeeds admirably. With 32 turrets, including six large beam cannons, the Atropos is stronger and more powerful than the Hatshepsut. Atropos destroyers are being rushed into service as fast as the GTA can build them, with a complete replacement of the Orion expected by 2352.

Developer's Notes

Low-poly released version is a re-turreted version of the ITD Ryujin in the OTT modeldump. Later, Woolie recieved permission to use the hi-poly EAD Ryujin made by Raven2001 for Inferno SCP, and the Hi-Poly Atropos is a re-turreted version of that. The textures are a mixture of retail tiles, and modified EA tiles from Inferno Release 1.

Name origin

Atropos was one of the Greek Fates, and was the one who decided how and when mortals would die.

The Atropos is like a stronger Hecate; it can't bring three BGreens to bear on a target like an Orion can due to its firing arcs, but it can seriously mess up enemy fighters and bombers. The 140,000 hitpoints give it more endurance than any retail destroyer aside from the SD Demon. Against warships it is best deployed pointing directly at the target, where it can lash out with both of its forward BBlues. In broadside engagements it can only employ one BBlue and one TerSlash.
