The Companion Ships Warfly and Gerund are side-weapons from Tyrian.
Just released by Gencore into Tyrian sector 2.0.
These are the latest in advanced ship tracking systems. Both models feature a ship-history tracking system which means they will follow your ship's every move, only they will stay a second or two behind your movement.
The Warfly packs a newly developed rapid-fire crystalline energy mine, while the more powerful Gerund uses a triple-beam system. Recent reports reveal that two custom prototype Lightning-Gerund craft were designed and sold to General Nortaneous, but Gencore denies this as a false rumor.
Microsol has also released a competing line of weapons which dock with your ship to form permanent forward cannon attachments.
