FreeSpace 2 DescriptionEditIn 2360, Allied Command commissioned the first of the GVD Hatshepsut-class destroyers. The Vasudan contractor Akheton designed the Hatshepsut to efficiently integrate the new beam cannon. The process of retrofitting the older Typhon-class warships yielded vessels prone to system failures and reactor overloads. Though a handful of modified Typhons remain in service, the Hatshepsut has taken over as the primary Vasudan destroyer. With 24 turrets, 5 beam cannons, and 2 fighterbays, destroyers such as GVD Psamtik of Deneb's 13th Battle Group serve at the vanguard of the modern Vasudan fleet.

- Surrender, Belisarius! (Deneb system, near planet Cygnus Prime) The Psamtik arrives to retrieve a convoy evacuating colonists from Cygnus Prime which had come under attack. Command informes the destroyer that a Deimos class corvette, the NTCv Belisarius will be arriving in it's vicinity. After the corvette's arrival, the destroyer asks for it's surrender, but after a refusal, the Belisarius is destroyed. The Psamtik launches two wings of fighters to relieve the convoys escort. It then proceeds to retrieve the colonists, after which its fighters return to its hangar bay and the warship departs.
