A special warhead for [[Lance Torpedo]]es that uses a fusion explosion to power a reaction similar to that in a tractor beam emitter, and produce a very powerful asymmetric gravity field for a brief instant. For that instant, any ship within the area of the effect will experience a rapidly changing asymmetric gravity field and will be torn apart by its own weight. A development of the same principle behind [[Graviton Cannon]]s.

More bang for your buck.

A special warhead for Lance Torpedoes that uses a fusion explosion to power a reaction similar to that in a tractor beam emitter, and produce a very powerful asymmetric gravity field for a brief instant. For that instant, any ship within the area of the effect will experience a rapidly changing asymmetric gravity field and will be torn apart by its own weight. A development of the same principle behind Graviton Cannons.
