Exactly like the GTM Tsunami except for its shockwave which is smaller, my best guess is that this is to prevent unshielded fighter in early parts of FreeSpace 1 from getting destroyed by a bomb's shockwave. It also has less shield damage.


Safer to knock down then the Tsunami, but for god's sake be more than 100 meters away when you do it, and preferably 200.
