Blue Planet Tech Room Description

The GVL Tawaret is an enormous Vasudan logistics vessel, comparable to the Anemoi. The Tawaret, however, doubles as a tanker capable of collecting gas and processing it for fuel to the fleet. As such, the Vasudan logistics ship lacks medical bays, and due to the fuel processing facilities, is susceptible to devastating internal explosions should it be fired upon.

Name Description

In Egyptian mythology, Taweret, or "the great one", was originally the wife of the first god of evil, Apep. Eventually, she was made a benevolent figure, the goddess of fertility and childbirth. Her name is spelled many ways; the Greeks' name for her was Thouéris (Θουέρις).

Please read the Veteran Comments policy before editing this section.

5k less hitpoints are made up with a slightly better armament, SVasPulses being better than the two flak and few blob turrets the GTL Anemoi has to endure. This doesn't make this ship any less of an oversized, indefensible and helpless freighter should it come under attack from anything better armed than another freighter.
