Gallic Battleship Forward Gun



TODO: Add icon



The "Warwolf" was perhaps the largest trebuchet ever built on ancient Earth. It was commissioned by Britain's King Edward I for his siege of Stirling Castle in Scotland during a rebellion. The Gallic Royal Navy chose the name for this ironic quality, since it was first deployed in their assault on Bretonia. The gun creates the most devastating non-nuclear blast in existence, delivering more than twice as much destructive power as a Mortar. The weapon is capable of obliterating conventional cruisers in one shot to their hulls, and causes massive concussion waves throughout battleships and dreadnoughts, incapacitating crew members that somehow survive the impact. The weapon's energy requirements and long recharge time are significant, and are its only disadvantage. The Gallic Royal Navy considers use of the weapon so important that relatively high ranking officers act as its gunner under direct command of an admiral, and these officers have been known to be court martialed or demoted for failing to hit their target, since use of the weapon prevents the ship from firing other weapons due to the energy drain. Gallic Royal Navy combat doctrine calls for the "Warwolf" to be deployed primarily as an opening salvo in engagements versus capital ships, since its use significantly impedes use of the ship's other weapons systems. Loss of shields while in range of a Gallic battleship that has sufficient energy to fire this weapon is almost suicidal for a capital ship.
