This mammoth vessel become staple of exaggeration and overambition of early Inferno incarnations. Virtually impossible to be destroyed by conventional means, Icanus is bristling with countless turrets including multiple superheavy beam cannons arranged mostly on sides of the ship. It's signature weapon, the oversided beam cannon is located in tubular section, is facing forward and will basicly kill everything in one shot, except ships of similar sizes. If you ever wondered about including such insane vessels in your mod, believe me and just don't. It is almost impossible to fred a mission around this thing due to it's extreme proportions and firepower. It's appearance in missions make sense only as background, and it's probably easier then figuring the plot explanation why such thing even exist.

It shares base mesh with GTD Henderson, with exception of main beam section and front part.

It's future in Inferno Nostos is uncertain. If it's ever featured, it's likely to be much smaller and armed like a standard juggernaut.
