The GTFr Poseidon


Description:

FS1 Tech Room Description

The Poseidon is the standard military freighter in the GTA. It is designed to protect its cargo from any kind of attack, and has four turrets with which to do so.

FS2 Tech Room Description

The GTFr Poseidon is the smaller of the two standard Terran military freighters. Though it carries only half as much cargo as the Triton, the Poseidon is more often chosen for dangerous missions. Its greater speed gives it better survivability on the front lines, as does the fact that it has four weapon turrets, compared to the Triton's two. When Allied Command sends supplies and munitions that have to get through, a Poseidon is usually chosen to transport them.

Name origin

In Greek mythology, Poseidon was the god of the sea, and the only deity with the power to create earthquakes. He was the brother of Zeus and Hades, and about the second most powerful deity after Zeus in the Pantheon.

Veteran Comments

Please read the Veteran Comments policy before editing this section.


This ship is actually better armed than the GVFr Satis, despite what the tech room makes of the Satis, as HL-7s are more powerful than Terran Turrets. Its armor is woeful however, with the some bombers being able to take more hits than this freighter.


It is very well armed with 4 Subarchs or 4 Avengers depending on which game you play. These can allow it to eviscerate any fighter that dares attack them. Also they are very fast and very maneuverable for a vessel larger than a fighter (in fact, more maneuverable and faster than some bombers), and can be definitely counted on to survive were it not for the fact that their armour is extremely weak. A single heavy assault fighter can take this out easily with a load of Hornets. It is also quite a bit larger than the GVT Isis, and does not exactly perform the same acrobatics to survive. Overall pretty good, but it needs more armour.
