War in Heaven Tech Room Description

The Federation's Mercury-orbit antimatter manufacturing stations have been active for decades. The result is a formidable stockpile of antimatter for use in heavy anti-warship torpedoes. These weapons were designed before the beginning of the recent civil war, but never manufactured in bulk due to ethical concerns. The GES-22 Sledgehammer is comparable to the GTVA's Helios warhead. For the safety of the launch vehicle, its warhead is not activated until within 250 meters of target.
