The SB Taurvi


Description:

FS2 Tech Room Description

The SB Taurvi is a Shivan vessel that has only recently been encountered. The Taurvi is one of the weaker Shivan bomber classes, but still the equal of every bomber in the GTVA arsenal. Not as maneuverable as a Nahema, nor as tough as a Seraphim or Nephilim, the Taurvi appears to be a Shivan compromise between speed and power.

The Taurvi is rather...unimpressive, particularly for a Shivan bomber. It has very small secondary banks for its role, limiting it to only one or two passes with Cyclops-type weaponry. Its primary weaponry is not particularly intimidating, and its shields and armor are rather thin. Nor is it fast or manuverable. The Taurvi's one advantage is its small front-back and side target profiles. From above or below, however, the Taurvi presents no great problem for gunnery. In the context of the Shivan bomber lineup, the Taurvi is the unfortunate inheritor of the SB Shaitan's "completely outclassed" status.


The Taurvi is a trade off. Although it has half the capacity of the SB Nephilim it is faster, and although it's slower than a SB Nahema it is better armored, capable of standing up to dual GTM Trebuchets which is an incredible advantage. The worst thing about this bomber is its small capacity, but it gets its payload to its target pretty well most of the time. It's not a great, but not a horrible bomber.


Its armor is higher than most Shivan fighters and bombers; it can survive multiple hits from Trebuchets and Tornadoes.


Not really that terrible - as a previous commenter said, it's a trade off. It may not have any exceptional capabilities, but it's a sturdy and well-made bomber, and it does have a rather thin target profile.


As a bomber, rather ineffective. Its secondaries are incredibly small.
