ITDoH Tech Room Description

Hercules Mk.III is a new heavy assault fighter. Some Hercules 2 pilots complained about its low number of primary guns compared to the older model. To solve this, Herc3 has 8 primary gunmounts and high-powered engine provides sufficient energy for sustained firing. This power also increased topspeed and afterburner power. With all these additions, the Hercules 3 has a reduced secondary loadout compared to its predecessors.

Inferno Knossos Tech Room Description

Terran heavy assault fighter.

Although the Hercules Mark II had been a successful design, following the Second Shivan Incursion, the GTF Ares supplanted its predecessor by trading speed and maneuverability for extremely heavy armor and massive secondary capacity. Having been rushed into production in the final days of the NTF civil war, the Ares saved tens of thousands of lives in the bomber-heavy battlespaces of Capella through the careful application of massed Trebuchet fire. However, in following years, the Ares began to show reliability problems arising from fundamental design flaws, leading to the Admiralty ordering a replacement.
