This week the Maslas Brothers are showing off some of the heavy ordnance that will be featured in the game. Three different grade torpedoes will be available: the Valiant and Firestorm from Prophecy as well as the heavier Lance which debuted earlier. It sounds like there'll be some pretty explosive assaults to come in Flat Universe! You can read all about Wing Commander torpedoes and how they compare with their real life counterparts in Dundradal's WC vs History feature.
We have some cool weapons. To be more precise, these are the Confederation conventional anti cap torpedoes you may encounter in combat (from top to bottom):
Valliant LT (light torpedo)
Firestorm (heavy torpedo)
Lance MK1 (fired only from capships)
Speed, range, lock time and damage potential are different for each type along with the platforms that can carry them. The only things they have in common is that they punch through phase shields and they create some great explosions - when they find the right target off course!
P.S.: Don't accidentally bump into one of those... You won't like it.
