|The GVC Mentu|
FS2 Tech Room Description
The GVC Mentu cruiser is the lightest of the new Vasudan warships. Following the Great War, allied scientists developed the beam cannons that now serve as the primary armaments of today's GTVA warships. Rather than modify existing ships, the Vasudans developed new designs to mount these weapons. The Mentu's 16 turrets include heavy beam cannons for duking it out with other warships, as well as AAA and flak turrets to fend off smaller craft. The GVC Somtus and the GVC Mycerinus recently demonstrated the strength of the Mentu against NTF forces in Epsilon Pegasi.
The Mentu is victim of poor weapons placement. Its main weaponry, flaks and AAA beams, is pointed upwards; attack from below, and pay the most attention to enemies below. It is also worth noting that, despite the techroom description, the Mentu mounts no anticapital beams.
I think the horrible GVC Aten has every right to bear no anti-warship beam cannons, but I think the Mentu should mount somthing, even a single SVas or VSlash would be better than nothing, because even with two of either of these weapons, an Aeoulus can kill this cruiser, without them, there is no fight.
