AHTW already has many MODs and may have more. When I finish
organizing the pictures, I'll upload them along with the shiplist
add-ons and the .POF's so that other Alpha 1's can test them. This
will hopefully be done by the end of the year. Instead of making you
wait for the whole thing, I'll put up a few a month...
GTM Cataclyst is a Fusion bomb surrounded by 5 salted fission
bombs; propulsion unit is a third-size version of a regulation GTA
fighter thruster (Class IV); given the weight of the payloads, the
missile is slow despite the power of the thruster; as the
Cataclyst is exceptionally large, GTA fighters and bombers are
limited to carrying 1 of these weapons in each weapon bay; the
resultant shock wave from this weapon is potentially deadly, due
to the size of the payloads (7500 Mt in total); use near allied
installations or allied ship groupings is strongly discouraged by
the GTA; most effective when used
in preemptive defensive strike against non-military installations.
These are the first dumb fire bombs designed by the GTA. It's slow
speed and lack of maneuverability makes it easy to shoot down, but
it can be fired without ever targeting the enemy.
The Anohs class cruiser was designed when the Vasudans engineers
were experimenting with new forms of fusion drives. They installed
a meson component into the reactor core of an Aten cruiser. The
'Mutual Annihilation' caused by quarks and anti-quarks, increased
the reactor output by 750%. This amount of energy was first routed
into weapons, creating a large beam-like field of energy
originating from a particle emitter. These weapons were thought to
have great potential, but the lack of heavy damage, and a two
minute power up stage rendered this weapon useless. The energy was
then routed into propulsion, but caused the engines to burn out
far too often. Energy was cut back, until the Aten was almost 3
times faster than factory standards (25m/s). The extra energy was
routed back into the weapons, so that each turret had the energy
reserves to; fire weapons found only on the largest ships, and
increase the rate of fire.
These components were installed into a set of Aten cruiser hulls.
The armor was lightened to regain some of the lost
maneuverability. This cruiser was then rechristened the PVC Anohs.
The Anohs was deployed near the end of the Great War, shortly
after Vasuda prime was decimated. It was disabled by Shivan
fighters from the SD Tantalus while engaging the destroyer. It was
rescued by the GTD Minnow while the Minnow was en route to the Sol
system in pursuit of the Bastion's battle group. It was sent to
Laramis, to the new R&D station for repairs and other changes. The
GTA and PVE secretly covered up for Atens being sent to Laramis
one at a time, to be redesigned as a copy of the Anohs. The Anohs
was never intended to be produced from scratch in construction
yards, for fear that the HOL would get their hands on a set of
plans. For this reason, all Anohs' are equipped with both a
heavily shielded escape pod, and a foolproof self-destruct. The
escape pod shields are able to withstand almost all damage of the
explosion even at close range. The self-destruct can also be
triggered when the escape pod enters subspace.
Because of their light armor, the Anohs will always be found in
groups of three or more. If the meson components in the reactor
mix violently, the resulting blast will rip apart anything of
medium or small size within three kilometers.
Alone, the Anohs should be considered a Class B threat. In a group
of three, it should be considered a Class A threat. Should any
ship encounter more than four Anohs'; they should begin immediate
evacuation, and/or leave the area immediately.
