Tain_Enabran aka heavycruiser1701 brings us a mod that you don't see every day, a new weapon to bolster the Romulan's cloak and dagger policy in Armada 2! Smile Based on the Cardassian Plasma Bank (from the Keldon) and using elements of the SFC Romulan Plasma weapon this is a pretty good mod. It's a special weapon that will most definitely hurt your opponents due to it's damagebase being at 1,000, which is balanced if you think of it in the context of SFC3 where the Plasma weapon could do alot of damage. The colour and ordinance of the weapon is good and it does look good ingame but I think it should look more like the actual Plasma weapon from SFC3. Still it's nicely done and should be downloaded to give your Romulans a bit of an edge.!




This is a new weapon based on the Cardassian Keldon plasma bank from armada 2. This weapon is more impressive than the plasma bank
but launches a beautiful typical green fireball of Romulan origin that can destroy several ships in one shot. The plasma torpedo is
best seen on D'deridex class and Norexan class Warbirds. The weapon makes them powerful allies or opponents in combat. Have fun!

I have been working the same idea, but yours is much more elegant than mine. So now I'll scrap mine and use yours! :D Thanks, I owe you a beer, mate!

finally someone has converted this weapon from SFC but the problem here as in SFC is, that the weapons sprite is to big in my opinion

I shall make this a little less powerful and throw it on to the Scimitar and a couple of Warbirds...
