The Typhon is a relic of the past and was originally designed as a Deuterium Tanker for transporting fuel from the planet side ocean refineries up to the orbiting space stations. The success of the Taipan
led Supermarine to make similar modifications to the Typhon’s tail pontoon in order to exploit the military market. At its launch the Typhon was one of the most threatening armed vessels to stalk the space lanes and the Class 8 tail gun could slice through most armour plating as though it didn’t exist. Although an old design the Typhon has aged well since its superior speed compensates for its now dated weapon deployment.
