GTM EMP Adv.
The GTM-14 EMP Adv. is a tactical missile used by the GTVA in FreeSpace 2. It is an improved version of the GTM EM Pulse introduced during the Hades Rebellion. The EMP Adv. is an aspect-seeking missile that, upon impact, creates a shockwave with an effective range of 300 meters. Ships caught in the blast will have their sensors and communications scrambled for a period of time, rendering them unable to acquire and maintain aspect lock on their target and reduce their ability to send and receive messages, with the scrambling effect being more pronounced the closer the ship is to the center of the shockwave, while bombs and turrets within the shockwave radius will experience temporary shutdown.
Although the EMP Adv. is not designed to be used as an offensive weapon, it is reported that the missile is capable of penetrating warship armor, albeit with an absurd amount of hits.

|The GTM-14 EM Pulse Adv.|
The GTM-14 Electromagnetic Pulse Advanced warhead interferes with the electronics systems of vessels caught within its blast radius. This renders the affected ships unable to track targets, manage communications, or gain aspect missile lock. Tactically, the GTM-14 is a very effective anti-bomber weapon, as it also temporarily shuts down the guidance and propulsion systems of warheads in flight. This advanced version of the standard EM Pulse missile disrupts subsystems at a deeper circuitry level, resulting in a longer-lasting effect.
