The first new XGA01 vessel to be sighted since 2340, the SV07 “Teardrop” is roughly the size of a heavy cruiser. It was first spotted at extreme range as a silhouette against glow of a system’s red giant, hence its moniker. Seen more clearly, between the central psionic sphere swarm shooter mount, and the rear piping structures (of unknown function), the vessel has been noted as looking eerily like a disembodied eyeball.
Only a single configuration has been spotted at this time.
The teardrop’s spinal mount weapon is one of the rare visible weapon systems on an XGA01 vessel. As with most of the other quad-S emplacements, the spinal weapon defies easy concealment as the psionic sphere swarm shooters cannot be easily made into an array-based weapon. The teardrop’s quad-S is the largest such weapon thus far observed, with an accuracy envelope of about 480 000km and an output estimated at around 1250TXq.
The teardrop’s other main weapon system is a particle beam array. Unlike the ones on the SV04-BS battleship of SV06-DD destroyer, this array is omnidirectional. It has an estimated output of 2100TXq over a 500 000km accuracy envelope – comparable to largest Strayvian secondary batteries.
Finally, the teardrop has blasterbeam point defence arrays, totalling an estimated output of 1980TXq. In addition to the inherent stealthiness and sensor-disruptiveness of the XGA01 hulls and its high mobility, this makes the teardrop quite resistant to missiles.
The teardrop’s drives are powerful, and seemingly similar in profile to that used by the SV02-BC battlecruiser with an acceleration of 21-22mc and approximately 240-250 MEUs. Indeed of the three sightings so far, in one instances, a pair of teardrops were apparently flying escort for one of the battlecruisers. The convergence of the two vessel’s weapon accuracy envelopes further supports this hypothesis.
