Battlecruiser Mortar



TODO: Add icon



With warship design doctrine moving towards a middle ground between cruisers and battleships, fleets began to realize that their new front-line battlecruisers were in need of the same artillery functionality of the classes of ship they were situated between. To the rescue came the same weapons laboratories that brought forth the Mortar family, and from the specifications given to them by various militaries and R&D groups, they produced the self-evidently-named TL-12 "Battlecruiser Mortar".



At its core, the Battlecruiser Mortar is to the TL-4a "Light Mortar" what the TL-45 "Heavy Mortar" is to the original TL-25. Larger fullerened antimatter autoloaders and a more capable cryogenics unit combine their payloads into a slug that releases more energy than that of the Light Mortar but at a proportionately higher input energy cost. The result is a spectacular display of high energy photons across the electromagnetic spectrum, heat, fast neutrons, and an expanding cloud of vapour where the target once was.
