The GTD Hades was a warship of the class of the same name during and after the Great War. The Hades was an effort to utilize stolen Shivan technology and mix it with Terran ones. Disagreement from the side of the Galactic Terran Alliance led to the Hades Rebellion, during which, the GTD Hades was destroyed by two squadrons and the GTC Orff.

The GTD Hades


Description:

FS1 Tech Room Description

Nothing much is known about the GTD Hades. It seems to be the GTI's top project. We believe the goal of the project is to recreate the SD Lucifer.

The GTD Hades should be considered a Class A threat.

FS2 Tech Room Description

The GTD Hades was a fusion of Terran and Shivan military technologies. It was constructed by Galactic Terran Intelligence (GTI), a rogue branch of the GTA. In 2335, GTI leaders sought to overthrow the provisional GTA government established in Delta Serpentis. After the defeat of the GTI and the destruction of the Hades, the GTA classified the details of this research at level Omega. There are rumors that the Alliance has attempted to reconstruct the Hades to learn more about the GTI's activities. These reports have yet to be confirmed by government sources.

Has alot hitpoints, in Secrets Revealed, standard practice is to hide in the "trench" halfway between fore and aft of this ship, and jam your keyboard's firing key down. I've found however, that this is not as effective in Freespace 2. The weakest point of the Hades is the horrible protection of its subsystems. A Orion, although it has 1/4 - 1/8 the armor, can win in a fight with a Hades simpley because the Hades will be disabled and mostly disarmed within 30 seconds of the battle.

It is more powerful than other destroyers in my opinion, and can take on any on its own. However, it lacks turrets at the bottom.
