A bulky energy weapon from the early epoch, the TPC is built directly into the Onslaught's hull and provides overwhelming firepower.

Designed before modular energy weapons were a reality, this weapon was coded into the Onslaught's blueprint because no other ship was large enough or had reactors capable of generating the requisite power.

Even though it's outperformed by some of the later epoch modular designs, the Thermal Pulse Cannon remains an integral part of the Onslaught's arsenal.

–In-Game Description

The Thermal Pulse Cannon is an energy weapon built into the Onslaught's hull (two per ship). It provides exceptional frontal firepower at long range, particularly when fired in bursts, and is generally superior to modular energy weapons.
