Boarding Torpedo

Boarding Torpedoes are a type of Torpedo used by the Imperial Navy for boarding operations against enemy starships. More of a manned spacecraft than a weapon, they are similar to Shark Assault Boats in role. Filled with specifically trained Imperial Navy boarding troops, a Boarding Torpedo slams into an enemy starship, then unleashes its deadly cargo within to incapacitate and capture the vessel.[1]

Boarding Torpedoes are less maneuverable and armoured than assault boats, but are also a smaller target and thus more difficult to intercept.[1]

Tyranid Boarding Torpedoes are entirely organic semi-sentient creatures known as Boarding Spines.[2]
