Short Burn torpedo

From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

Short Burn torpedo is the most common of Imperial special torpedo types, possessing increased engine power at the expense of fuel tanks. As a result, they are considerably faster (and thus less likely to get shot down), but they might also "burn out" - i.e., run out of fuel before reaching their intended target. If that is the case, the torpedo will immediately detonate, catching anything too close in the blast, be it friend or foe.[1]
