The GTF Ares is a heavy fighter class during the Second Shivan Incursion. It is an upgraded version of the GTF Hercules Mark II with more missiles and thicker armoring.


The GTF Ares class of fighters is a radical upgrade of the Hercules II fighter. The power plant has been completely replaced with the newer, more powerful Nankam NA-27f model. Depleted uranium shielding has been added atop critical subsystems, making the Ares harder to incapacitate. Two primary weapon banks have been added, for greater firepower than the Herc II. This greater punch and protection come at a cost, however, as the Ares handles like a potato.

Compatible WeaponsEdit

While the standard loadout of the Ares includes primary banks consisting of 4 GTW-5a Prometheus R Cannons and 2 GTW Subach HL-7s, and 2 secondary banks loaded with GTM-19 Harpoons and GTM-4 Hornets respectively, the Ares, like other GTVA fighters, can have its loadout modified, depending on mission parameters or pilot preference.
