The GTFr Triton is a Terran-designed freighter. While it only has half the speed of the GTFr Poseidon, slightly poorer defenses, and is considerably larger, the Triton is more than twice as durable and can haul more tonnage. In addition, the Meson Bomb is specifically designed to be moved around by the Triton.

Description:

FS2 Tech Room Description

The GTFr Triton hauls almost twice the tonnage of the Poseidon-class freighters that have served the Alliance since the Great War. The ability to distribute supplies and munitions is vital in any theater of operations. With the Triton, battle groups can keep their forces well-equipped, even if dispersed over multiple systems. The Triton not only has the ability to dock with and haul TAC units, but it also has an internal cargo bay for ship-to-ship transfers. The GTVA expects the Triton to reduce its reliance on deep-space depots, which are vulnerable to attack and sabotage.

Name origin

In Greek mythology, Triton was the son of Poseidon and the messenger of depth. Most typically, he is depicted having a human body and a tail of a fish. Argonautica, a Greek epic poem places his home to the territory of today's Lybia. It is said that Triton helped the ship Argo in her quest to retrieve a sacrosanct object named the Golden Fleece.

The largest moon of Neptune is named Triton.

There is no doubt that this is the biggest allied freighter in the game. The cargo container it carries, the TC-TRI, is the size of a Nimitz-class aircraft carrier.


It may have a flak cannon, but other than that, it really needs escort, because this thing is extremely fragile. If you let 1 bomber wing get near it, it's history; even a single fighter can take the Triton down easily.


Tritons are surprisingly dangerous in groups, staggered to present multiple flak turrets against a strafing run. Alone, however, they are almost helpless against a fighter wise enough to attack from below.
