The GTM-3 Tsunami Bomb

Tech Room Data

Intelligent tracking similar to GTA targeting system - prior to launch, communicates with ship computer, gathering data about enemy target types and whereabouts - slow, low maneuverability - antimatter warhead (500 tonne3 mass-to-energy conversion) - due to instability of antimatter, no more than 10 may be carried on board a GTA bomber at any given time, unless pilot is granted a special permit by an appropriate governing body.

The Tsunami has now become the standard Terran bomb used to take out large targets. It's short life requires that you get within 1500 meters of the target before sending it off, and since it needs a lock to be fired, it takes a brave pilot to fly straight enough for long enough to let one of these fly. A few Tsunami's will take out almost any ship, barring a destroyer. The antimatter warhead also washes over shields a little, so as long as it isn't too close to the center of the blast, a fighter or bomber has a good chance of surviving detonation.

Veteran Comments

The Tsunami is the first real space-bomb you get in Freespace 1. Unlike the future GTM Cyclops and GTM Helios which have advantages and disadvantages over each other, the GTM Harbinger is in fact, superior to the Tsunami. You can destroy things with the Tsunami, but it takes a lot of time.
