GTB Stheno


Tech Room Description

The GTB Stheno is the Alliance's Nephilim. This monstrosity took many of the design aspects of the Medusa, and purposed them for objectives greater than that of the Ursa. With the heaviest shielding ever fielded on a GTVA craft, advanced armor, decent thrusters, 10 primary hardpoints and 4 missile bays, the Stheno tears through capital formations with unprecedented efficiency.

Inferno Nostos Tech Room Description

Advanced Terran heavy bomber.

Nankam Aeronautical designed the GTB Stheno as an answer to the high attrition of the casualty-prone bomber corps, especially among pilots of heavier designs. Learning from the failures of the Boanerges design, Nankam built the Stheno as a flying fortress, armored with collapsed-core molybdenum, supplemented by the latest active-armor systems and protected by a powerful shield system sustained by Nankam's massive NA-42 reactor core. Despite being more heavily protected than the GTB Ursa and the Boanerges, the Stheno is both faster and more maneuverable than either of its predecessors, and mounts 4 Hastor turrets to dissuade enemy interceptors. In addition to its three enormous missile bays, the Stheno also mounts three separate primary banks, including a dedicated PAC system and a ballistic-capable primary bank, for a total of ten hardpoints. SPELLS integration rounds out the Stheno's tactical suite, mounting the HOTLOAD dumbfire missile launch system, the SMOKESCREEN flare/stealth hybrid system, and a customizable slot accommodating the OVERDRIVE afterburner supercharger, the SMARTBOMB defense system, or the REPAIRKIT auto-repair package. The Stheno was planned to enter service last year, but the extraordinary cost has slowed deployment. As a result, the bomber is currently in the final phase of OpEval, and is reserved as a special-issue bomber for SOC strike missions. Although Special Operations Command refuses to comment on the bomber's performance, rumors suggest that SOC bomber pilots are extremely happy with the Stheno's performance.
