Tech Room Description

The Supernova torpedo was developed by the Hideki Research Institute in cooperation with Subach-Innes, under massive pressure from the GTVA Admiralty to produce a tactical application of meson warhead technology. More compact than the Helios bomb, and nearly as powerful, the Supernova is commonly mounted on Erebus- and Titan-class destroyers, where it allows the warship to engage targets at long range while in a stern chase or while supporting fightercraft. Though vulnerable to interception and incapable of the raw damage output of a beam weapon, the Supernova allows modern warships full spherical engagement capability with a powerful weapon capable of nullifying any target - given sufficient time and assuming hostile point defense are neutralized.
