|CTU-6b "Waran" Civilian Bomber
||6 / 2
|Opt. weapon class
|Max. weapon class

|Max. thrust speed
|Max. cruise speed
Based loosely on an old, unpopular bomber design, the "Waran" still bears the name of the vessel it has come to replace. Many rumors circulate about it's origins. Some say Junkers mated the powercore of the old Waran to the Raven's Talon frame. Some say the Independent Miners secretly constructed this bomber as a craft for unscrupulous clients such as the Lane Hackers. Whatever the origin, the result is a sturdy bomber capable of unleashing withering firepower on a hapless target.
As with all bombers, this ship maneuvers poorly for a craft of its size. Nevertheless, its firepower and widespread availability found quick popularity with the "more power, more guns, fewer problems" crowd, which it turned out included virtually anyone interested in blowing things up. From Junkers to Gaians to Bundschuh to Xenos, this ship has found universal employment by pilots for whom style is not a concern.

A large, menacing monster of a bomber in terms of stats, visually this ship looks like someone ate scrap metal, and crapped out the Waran.
However, it makes up for its visual flaws by being able to tear open anything that is bigger then a transport. With the standard heavy bomber core, the fourth best armor rating, and having the bots and bats to back it all up. Its the heaviest bomber that is still considered 'civilian' and happens to be excellent in the pirating region. A Snac coupled with a Train Cruise Disruptor will mean big profits as long as the local armed forces don't show up. Additionally, some para-military groups like the Hellfire Legion make use of this ships awe-inspiring abilities to rip capital ship apart. Able to fire a Nova torpedo and a Snac at the same time, this ship can become, simply put, one of the best cap killers in the game.

Heavier than most of the heavy bombers, this ship can destroy nearly any opponent properly flown. Do not attempt to use it without either dual Nova
torpedo launchers or a SNAC
combination. The lack of a dedicated cruise disruptor hardpoint means it's not a ship to be flown solo, you're better off in a Havoc Mk II
or a Roc
. Some say you would even be better off in a Broadsword
. If you don't mind lacking a cruise disruptor, this ship will fulfill your every desire. It has the maximum cargo capacity a light cloaking device will operate with. It has two nearly perfectly centered guns greatly increasing effectiveness against fighters, already supreme through the use of Hellfire Rocket Pods and a SNAC
. If you can afford the cornea transplants necessitated by the ugliness of the ship, it will serve you well.
Review by [U] Henry Farnsworth (4.86; 2012-06-23)
After having the title of the ugliest bomber in game for a long time, Waran got a nice rework which made him the most popular Heavy Bomber in the game. For a Heavy Bomber, the size is average (it has a big back), agility solid, guns and snac placement quite good, and it has mediocre armor. Almost any faction can use it and therefore it's the most versatile Heavy Bomber on the market.
Pros: Availability, Guns placement, Looks amazing, Snac placement
Cons: Quite big from behind
