Description (Specifications)[edit]

These vehicles are part of the Imperial class Grav APC family.

The Nuclear Damper Control APC is the vehicle that controls and directs the fire of Imperial class Nuclear Damper Carriers against suspected nuclear warheads to prevent their detonation. The dampers have an over-the-horizon range, but cannot detect targets except those in line-of-sight. These control vehicles provide the means for local observation.

The vehicle is a combination of the command and control functions of the Imperial class Grav APC - Command and Computer (Marines) and the point defence capabilities of the Imperial class Grav APC - Point Defense. The former allow acces to the global observation and intelligence networks needed to assess the threat and the latter allow the individual weapons to be tracked and engaged.
