A "Planetoid Buster" Class WC-1© These are the big guns of the "MarsShield" arsenal. These guys are roughly the size of a medium-sized EarthCon Man-O-War. All three of the dorsal cannons can blast asteroids to bits. The secret of THESE babies, since ALL MarsShield interplanetary units are fitted with planetoid-destroying guns, is that there is a bank of computerized guns under the dorsal side that can track and pummel an opponent in no time at all! All MarsShield ships have invisibility circuits, for stealth.
