Tralkik exterminators are a vehicular Tralkikianoe, which are levitating heavy vehicles.
History[edit | edit source]
Origins[edit | edit source]
Original Exterminators were more flat, and started as artillery vehicles. They ran on treads, and their particle cannons were used for artillery blasts. The antimatter missiles were originally just grenade launchers, fired against infantry often to disperse their formations so they could be picked off one by one.
Progression[edit | edit source]
Exterminators changed significantly, when the Tralkik Sweepers evolved more into artillery, and a larger artillery vehicle was no longer needed. The ships were outfitted with zero point energy and non-phasic deflector shielding. It became more focused on just destructive combat in general, rather than artillery.
UNO[edit | edit source]
When they joined the Unified Nation of Ottzello, the Exterminators changed further. They were outfitted with powerful electromagnetic drives, making them capable of levitation and hovering (by using the magnetic drive to manipulate magnetic poles and gravity for their own movement), which made them faster. They also used the electromagnetic drives for electomagnetic shielding (from EMP).
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Tralkik Exterminators appear as round vehicles, with several visible weapons; there are no concealed weapons.
Behaviour[edit | edit source]
The Exterminators will roam the battlefield firing their weapons based on the target and combat situation, but tend to be used as more defensive than the Sweeper and Tralkik Seekers. Their weapons are long range, but not as long as the Sweeper's artillery weapons in general.
Equipment[edit | edit source]
The Exterminators use particle cannons, antimatter missiles and rapid fire turbolasers, making them formidable to infantry, all vehicles and even air targets overall. It has multiple sensors, which are adept at tracking any target. It makes heavy use of its electromagnetic drive, and uses zero point energy.

Combat[edit | edit source]
Attacks[edit | edit source]
The Exterminator's larger attacks are its particle cannons and antimatter missiles, which it uses on larger targets, or at causing attacks on a large radius. In addition, it has rapid fire turbolasers (as its most common attack), capable of not only making short work of infantry and light vehicles, but heavy vehicles/
Defence[edit | edit source]
The Exterminators uses regenerative albative armour; armour that uses nanomachines to be repaired, like cells would repair a bodies' skin but done far quicker, and on a larger scale. It also uses nonphasic deflector shielding, which can deflect against most forms of weaponry, albeit weakening under sustained bombardment (a problem that is often removed by making them regenerative, so that they can be immediately recharged by the ship's energy supplies, or absorbent, so that they can absorb energy from the weapons fire), as well as phased weapons (including transphased weapons).
Strategy[edit | edit source]
The Exterminators are the most powerful vehicles, adaptable to any combat situation. While they have an emphasis on defence, they can be used for any situation and any purpose, making them the most efficient ground vehicle not just for the Tralkikianoe, but the Unified Nation of Ottzello as a whole.
