The largest capital missile in common use, the Kraken-T was developed by the Draconis Combine Admiralty for use in their new WarShips. It is guided to its target via dedicated control links that allow the missile to communicate with the WarShip or DropShip that launched it. These dedicated links allow a human gunner to guide the missile into its target. Though the Kraken-T cannot target AeroSpace Fighters with any degree of accuracy, a larger target hit by a Kraken will take severe damage from the massive warhead it carries.
After receiving the plans and schematics from the DCA during the Clan Invasion detente, these missiles became particularly popular with the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns Navy. They appear on their Overlord A-3, Arondight, and Excalibur Pocket WarShips.
The Kraken-T missile system has only one model.
