The GTW-19 Circe


Tech Room Data

Derived from advanced electromagnetic weaponry, such as the Banshee, the GTW-19 Circe disrupts shield systems by focusing a barrage of widely varying EM harmonics upon its target. This energy is completely ineffective against any kind of armor plating or insulated subsystem. For this reason, the Circe is most effective when paired with a hull-damaging partner, such as the Maxim or Prometheus.

The yin to the GTW-66 Maxim Cannon's yang, the Circe eats shields for breakfast, but has no real other purpose.


I like to use this weapon in an GTF Erinyes with the GTW-66 Maxim Cannon. It's quite simple to fire off a couple of Circle bursts: completely striping away a fighters shields instantly, and then switch over to the Maxim and blow your target away.

The Tech room says its a dev of the banshee but in terms of usage its more related to the shield breaker, i would have said the spiritual sucsessor to the banshee is the kayser.
