Inferno Nostos Tech Room Description
Advanced Terran medium bomber.
Designed to destroy cruisers and corvettes, Dynamic Metamer produced the Euryale as a companion to the Rhea, intended to replace the outdated Artemis bomber. Unlike its companion bomber, the Euryale's development proceeded smoothly, beginning with Han-Ronald's venerable Medusa as a baseline and applying six decades of technical innovation to produce the most sophisticated medium bomber in the fleet. Mounting a DM-72 reactor core powering its dense shielding system and sporting the latest generation of active armor systems, the Euryale is built to take a beating. Three missile bays mounting all conventional GTVA ordnance, along with a dedicated bank of Plasma Accelerator Cannons, gives the Euryale the firepower to take on anything smaller than a destroyer.
Perhaps the Euryale's most controversial design decision is its active defense measures. Terran bomber pilots have long advocated for the return of defense turrets on next-generation bomber designs, but the Euryale eschews a turret system in favor of the SPELLS tactical engagement system. The Euryale mounts the OVERDRIVE afterburner supercharger, and the SMARTBOMB electromagnetic pulse defensive weapon. Initial results have been promising for both the SPELLS suite and the bomber itself, but skepticism among the bomber corps remains high.

Outer Rim Syndicate - Euryale Heavy Bomber
The Euryale is a retrofit of the Medusa-class bomber equipped with next-gen fusion engines and a larger secondary weapons bank. Redesigned by Massive Dynamic, a corporation renowned for innovative projects like the Archangel Plasma Cannons mounted on the Tychicus-class frigate or the Raptor-class gunship, the Euryale is yet more proof of the corporation’s creativity and innovation. The Euryale's designers devoted most of their efforts to maximize its bombing effectiveness by giving the Euryale a larger secondary payload. However, they also wanted to make sure that the Euryale would still be capable of defending itself. With 12 additional launch tubes dispersed around the ship’s fuselage, the Euryale's pilot can use the experimental Guardian Personal Defense System (GPDS) which fires salvos of fast, heat-tracking missiles to destroy enemy fighters from every possible angle. With both its large torpedo payload and the GPDS, the Euryale is regarded as one of the deadliest bomber-classes in the Exodus Fleet.
