The GTM-11 EM Pulse


Tech Room Data

Upon impact, the EM Pulse temporarily disables the electronics systems of the target ship. This renders the target ship unable to track targets, manage communications, or gain aspect missile lock. This has numerous tactical applications. For example, a direct hit with an EM Pulse missile will prevent bombers from launching aspect-seeking warheads for several seconds. Once the EMP field has worn off, they must also take the time to reacquire missile lock, granting you valuable time.

In FreeSpace 1, this weapon seems largely ineffective; in the FreeSpace Port, however, it has similar functionality to the GTM EMP Adv.
