Virus Torpedoes are Torpedoes of the Imperial Navy modified for biological warfare. Similar to the more famous Virus Bomb, Virus Torpedoes are employed when Imperial forces wish to capture a vessel intact, but the targets' crews and passengers are considered expendable. In these situations a Virus Torpedo is fired at an enemy starship, penetrating its hull then unleashing its deadly virus within to quickly wipe out all on board. Stolen or manufactured Virus Torpedoes are also sometimes used by pirates wishing to plunder large cargo vessels.[1]
