Designed to be the mother of all bombers, the Armageddon is a sight to behold. Mesuring at allmost 100 meters it can only be carried by heavy carriers. Armed with twin Redeemer Cannons, 4 standard primary banks, 5 defensive turrets and a unparalled secondary capacity it can unleash tremendous destruction at a moments notice.

The cost is well worth it, for the Armageddon is a flying fortress in the truest sense of the word. It's secondary payload is second to none - 2 massive missile bays are capable of carrying all standard bomber ordinance and the third bank is made specifically to carry 4 Judgment Day torpedoes - the largest and most powerful weapon ever mounted on a strikecraft. That firepower is further complemented by 4 standard primary weapons and a twin Redeemer anti-destroyer cannon, giving it an unprecedented offensive potential The defense is no less impressive.

Veteran Comments

Read the Veteran Comments policy before editing this section.


Less a true bomber than a small warship loaded with torpedoes. It can take a lot of punishment but it's so big and unwieldy that you are guaranteed to take fire from several ships at once, and you will have no hope of evading anything in this monstrosity of a bomber. The pile of turrets and massive hitpoints can only save you for so long if six fighters are in pursuit and every shot they fire hits its mark.

Tech Description The GTTB Euryale and its Vasudan equivalent, the GVTB Anedjib are the final answer of the GTVA on the threat of Shivan Sathanas juggernauts. This 100-meter-long colossus is armed with 5 defensive turrets and protected by ultra heavy armour that makes it almost indestructible by hostile fighters and capable of surviving explosion of the biggest enemy warships. Euryale is the toughest bomber and has the biggest payload of all bombers the GTVA has ever produced, but it is also extremely slow and immobile. It is deployed only against the most powerful enemies after the command's direct approval. Euryale bombers station only aboard Magnus supercarriers. They are capable of carrying the heaviest and the most powerful bomb of the Alliance - the Hegemonia portable meson warheads.
