Torpedo systems are a launch bay ship weapon that launch from bottom firing tubes. When a torpedo system is fired only one or two warheads are launched from their tubes. The projectile then goes deep into low atmosphere, often into Lower or even Deep Sky, under its own weight. After a short time the propellant activates and drives the torpedo up towards its target. Torpedoes tend to have large payloads and moderate amounts of propellant along with a rudimentary tracking and gyroscopic system. The casing of torpedoes is heavily armored and reinforced to handle the high pressure of the lower atmosphere of Delis.
Torpedoes are rated the Rixian (you may recognize it as Greek) alphabet . All torpedoes have a X100 multiplier and hit at least on the next turn, some can wait longer. They can NOT use consumable ammunition without the Proximity Fuse Assembly ship option. Torpedoes have a range of 30 and can target any elevation below the ship but is limited to targeting 1 elevation above (the target need only be in range when first fired).
