|The GTB Zeus|
The GTB Zeus is a post-Great War-era Terran strike bomber designed by the Research & Development division of Galactic Terran Intelligence. It improves upon the GTB Athena in that it can mount the GTM Tsunami. The trade-off is a slight reduction in speed, armor and shield strength.
FS1 Tech Room Description
Another product of GTI R&D, the Zeus strike bomber is a worthy successor to the Athena. Its balanced design and increased reactor capacity give it remarkable speed for a bomber, yet still remains capable of carrying the powerful Tsunami bombs. These features will make the Zeus a versatile and effective weapon against capital ships.
FS2 Tech Room Description
The GTB Zeus is the fastest of all currently active GTVA bombers. It replaced the fleet's old Athena bombers as they were mothballed during the years following the Great War. Though slightly slower than the Athena, the Zeus's heavier armor and armament give it a much better battlezone survivability rate. Many of the Zeus wings in the GTVA fleet defected to the NTF during the initial stages of the rebellion.
Excellent for hit-and-run bombing. Can carry Tsunamis. Good afterburner supply.
