The Yuuzhan Vong have proven that a new generation of weapons is
finally needed. At the top of the list of requirements for these new
weapons is greater range. Wtih this in mind, the Empire made a request for
proposals: "All new weapons must use an existing hull and have greater
range and firepower in their main weapon than a Heavy Turbolaser Battery."
Sienar Fleet Systems answered this call wth a new vessel built on
its venerable Interdictor hull. The Intruder's offensive armament is a
battery of four Stand-off Missile Tubes. These multipurpose weapons can fire
a variety destructive payloads. Its defensive armament is 25 Quad Laser
Cannons and 2D of backup shields (all Interdictors were upgarded with the
extra lasers and shields at the same time). The Intruder's ammunition load
of 40 missiles (20 Standard, 12 Heavy, 4 Recon, 4 Magne) makes it ideally
suited to firing vicious initial bombardments.

If targets resist roll is 3 less than
missile's damage roll, all of target's
computers are destroyed.
The fire control system of the Missile Tubes can only see 150 space units
and while all of the missiles travel at the same speed, they may not be able
to reach this distance, or may exceed it. Difficulty is based on the fire
control's range, not the missile's. If the missile travels beyond fire
control range, it flies in a straight line until it runs out of fuel. The
Fuel statistic determines how many turns the missile can fly for. It takes
a moderate Capital Ship Gunnery: Stand-off Missile roll to redirect a
missile in flight (fire control is included in the dice used for this roll).
