The TC-Meson Bomb is a special cargo container used only for housing a single Meson Bomb. This container is specifically designed so that it can dock with and be moved from one location to another by the GTFr Triton.

The Meson Bomb itself is an experimental weapon developed at the Hideki Institute in the Vega system. A highly classified project, this weapon has an explosive yield greater than any other warhead in the Terran or Vasudan arsenals, though its size requires it to be carried into battle by freighter rather than bomber. Its first combat deployment was to destroy the Knossos device in Gamma Draconis, and it was later used to collapse the subspace nodes leading from Capella to Epsilon Pegasi and Vega.

From a game implementation standpoint, this ship can be thought of as a cargo container with a custom model and a very powerful explosion.

FS2 Tech Room Description

The TC-Meson Bomb is used solely as a container for Meson Bomb deployments. Each is custom built specifically to hold a Meson Bomb. The container is permanently sealed once the bomb is safely housed within it.

Developer Notes

The canonical warhead yield in A Flaming Sword was customized using the Special Explosion feature and differs substantially from the yield in ships.tbl. The tabled explosion causes 100x the damage but produces 1/30th the blast force. The other explosion stats are similarly modified, though less dramatically.

Name Origin

Mesons are incredibly small subatomic particles that are made of one quark and one antiquark.
