Tactical Nuclear Missile

Written by Jeremy Lee on . Posted in Projectiles

Tactical_Nuclear_Missile

Full Weapon Name: Tactical Nuclear Missile

Damage: Very Heavy

Speed: Medium

Range: Medium

After-effects: Irradiation

Characteristics:

The primary weapon of [Sirerian Decimators], the only way to evade this missile is to take advantage of its slow turn speed.

Targets being hit are subjected to moderate radiation, bleeding away hit points over a period of time. The terrifying fact about this weapon is that it’ll only take a fixed amount of missiles to destroy ANY target. That is, if the target can survive the missile’s initial impact. (See status effects for more information.)

For its extreme destructive power, Sirerian Decimators are often considered as high priority targets; sometimes even above enemy commanders due to their potential threat.
Excerpts from Admiral Vasily Andropov’s diplomatic encyclopaedia:
“Ah yes… we have the habit of giving our enemies a very warm embrace before they die…”

Nuclear Missile

Damage: Extremely Heavy

Speed: Medium-Slow

Range: Very Long

After-effects: Irradiation

Characteristics:

Slavic Sirerian Admiral Vasily Andropov made no mention of such a weapon in his diplomatic archives.

Nothing much is known about this missile other than being a much more powerful variant of its tactical cousin. After a brief encounter with a strange group of Sirerians, UNC Admiral Harris Chen’s fleet was struck with one of these missiles and almost got him killed. His fleet was badly irradiated and had to beat a hasty retreat before a second missile hit. It was the second wave of scout patrol that finally got the technical readout of the missile. No images were sent back; no scouts survived.

Tactical Nuclear Bomblet

Tactical_Nuclear_Bomb

Full Weapon Name: Tactical Nuclear Bomblet

Damage: Heavy

Speed: Slow

Range: Short

After-effects: Irradiation

Characteristics:

Known to be the primary weapon of [Sirerian Pulverizers], it has a delayed acceleration mechanism to allow the bomber to escape before it plough into its intended target.

Its fusion chain reaction causes a nuclear explosion that irradiates the target for a period of time. Although the weapon is listed as a heavy damaging weapon, its real power is in the radioactive decay that radiates a certain percentage of hit points away per second.

Excerpts from Admiral Vasily Andropov’s diplomatic encyclopaedia:
“These precious little ones start slow, but will mark the enemy and make them glow like the sun….”

Liquidator Missile

Liquidator_Missile

Full Weapon Name: Liquidator Chemical Missile

Damage: Light

Speed: Medium-Slow

Range: Medium

After-effects: Bacterial Infestation

Characteristics:

The Liquidator missile is basically hull-eating bacteria guided to your hull.

As the bacteria can survive even in the vacuum of space and multiply by chewing into material such as armoured hull, it’ll continue to damage the vessel being hit for a short period of time.

Excerpts from Admiral Vasily Andropov’s diplomatic encyclopaedia:
“These… Liquidator Missiles… they hunt down the traitors within our ranks and ensure that they die a painful death….”

Olympus Mons Missile

<insert olympus mons missile>

Full Weapon Name: Olympus Mons Missile

Damage: Unknown

Speed: Unknown

Range: Unknown

After-effects: Unknown

Characteristics:

As the [Aeolis Mons Missile] is being deployed onto [NSAU Lens Frigate], there were rumours of an even more powerful missile being designed to specifically deal with heavily shielded starships. However, the NSAU Council of Foresight has vehemently denied such allegations.

Rumours faded with time and this missile project was soon forgotten.

Until one day, when the NSAU Council of Foresight suddenly commenced a project to build an extremely large dreadnought known as the [Vindicator] and that this missile will be fitted into it as its secondary weapon.

Even so, we have no further information on the missile’s capabilities. Rumour has it that it’ll be one of the most powerful missiles ever deployed; its firepower rivalling the much feared nuclear missile.

Aeolis Mons Missile

Aeolis_Mons_Missile

Full Weapon Name: Aeolis Mons Missile

Damage: Medium-Light

Speed: Medium

Range: Long

After-effects: None

Characteristics:

The guided missile technology was well-preserved by the NSAU. The Aeolis Mons Missile is in fact, an all-rounded missile capable of striking both fighters and starships with significant damage.

Since technological advancement is forbidden by the NSAU Council of Foresight and its current laser technology isn’t suitable for anti-fighter roles, it was decided that the Aeolis Mons Missile will become the NSAU government’s answer to fast flying space fighters.

This missile is currently known to be the secondary weapon on board [NSAU Lens Frigate].

Dragonbreath Torpedo

Dragon_Torpedo

Full Weapon Name: Dragonbreath MK-VII Siege Torpedo

Damage: Medium-Heavy

Speed: Medium

Range: Long

After-effects: None

Characteristics:

The dragon torpedo was designed as a long-range torpedo fired from the launchers of [UNC Missile Cruisers]. However, due to its limited fuel capacity, the dragon torpedo will only travel as far as their specified range with little extra fuel for additional guidance.

Thus, the dragon torpedo may not be ideal for fast moving targets that are a distance away from the firer.
