The GTF Hercules


The GTF Hercules (nicknamed "The Big Momma") was first introduced during the Great War and flew several successful missions against the Shivans, becoming the mainstay of Terran forces during the Great War.

The Neo-Terran Front was known to have used large numbers of these ships during their rebellion.

The replacement of this class was the GTF Hercules Mark II with increased agility and secondary loadout at the expense of having only four primary guns.

The FreeSpace Reference Bible states that a wing of four Hercules fighters at some point took out a Vasudan Aten cruiser. Since in-game information explicates that the Hercules was designed during the Great War, this cruiser was probably under the control of the Hammer of Light.

Description:Edit

FS1 Tech Room DescriptionEdit

The GTF Hercules is the slowest and most unmanageable fighter in the fleet. This is offset, however, by its overpowering weaponry and shielding. It carries 6 primary weapons, as well as two full secondary banks. This heavy assault fighter is best suited for small target attacks and bomber escort.

FS2 Tech Room DescriptionEdit

The old workhorse of the Terran fleet, the Hercules is a beloved but aging design. It was the mainstay of the Terran forces during the Great War, but it is slowly being phased out of the modern fleet. As they are replaced by Herc IIs, Myrmidons, and other recent designs, Hercules fighters are increasingly relegated to training and guard duties far from the front lines. Pilots who've flown Hercs for years love the ship's heavy armor and firepower and have learned to compensate for its low speed and poor maneuverability. The old Hercs are still widely used by NTF forces.

Developer NotesEdit

Low max velocity offset by its tremendous offensive capabilities. High weapon capacity.

Name originEdit

Hercules is the Latin name for Herakles, son of Zeus. Hercules is a symbol of masculinity and action. He was an esteemed and powerful warrior, and it is said that "he made the world safe for mankind."
