Description:

Default Tech Room Description

The GTCv Bellerophon is the latest corvette design produced by the GTVA. Mounting three very powerful long-range beams in a forward configuration, the Bellerophon is designed specifically to engage Shivan craft at range and inflict maximal damage before coming in to weapons range of its target. The Trinity-class main cannons are derivatives of Mesonic technology, extremely powerful but so power-hungry that plasma must be vented directly from the main reactors to fire. The Bellerophon is more heavily armored than its lighter cousin, the Chimera.

BP:AoA Tech Room Description

The next generation of Alliance corvettes is the heavy Bellerophon class. Her abilities are similar to that of the lighter Chimera class, but more reactor power has been diverted towards weapons systems to provide an increase in firepower. The result is a slower-propulsed but better-armed variant of the Chimera chassis, with new hull plating taking advantage of breakthroughs in armour research.

In Blue Planet, this corvette can vaporize almost anything short of a UEFg Karuna in a single salvo; it presents one of the most dire threats to UEF warships in War in Heaven. UEF Uriels are among the most effective counters to these ships. Although it doesn't have quite the point defenses of the lighter Chimera, it's pretty close; when attacking you certainly don't want to go very far into range of its AAA turrets. It has roughly the same size and survivability as the Iceni in FreeSpace 2.


The Bellerophon has fewer defense turrets and worse gun placements than the Chimera. It can quickly be overwhelmed if there isn't enough support.
