WARNING!! A huge battleship -G.T.B- is approaching fast.

G.T.B (Great Thing Black), (Japanese: ジーティービー, Hepburn: Jītībī?) [Japanese name: giant black] is the hardest variant of Great Thing. It’s a improved version of G.T.V (Great Thing Violet). It is shaped after a sperm whale (Physeter macrocephalus).

Website Summary[]

For Dariusburst: Another Chronicle EX

A large battleship similar in shape to a sperm whale. It is the final evolutionary form of the Great Thing type battleship and the Belsar army's most powerful battleship. Silverhawk pilots call it "Black Whale" with both awe and dignity. "Black Whale" is confirmed to exist only at the deepest part of the galactic center's limited base. There has only been a few encounter cases in the first place, and the battle data obtained are few due to the small number of allies who survived.

This ship embodies the ideal type of a single ship invasion which is the basic tactics of the Belsar army. It goes without saying about its overwhelming fire power, such as simultaneous shooting of ship-mounted guns, ammunition that never runs out, and a maximum beam gun that even neutralizes burst guns. Compared to V type, continuous shooting of annihilation destructive weapons became possible by improving the burst institution. Overwhelming defense power. The jet black armor that covers the whole body endures the bombardment from any enemy ship. Still, their big bodies are incredibly light and easy to handle, even when maneuvering. With such features, only Silverhawk units are the only possibility for our army to oppose them. For humanity, salvation may be that the number of confirmed "black whales" is small, and the places of appearance is limited.

The ultimate evolution of Great Thing, the largest and strongest battleship which is the ideal form of single-ship invasion, the most basic tactic of the Belsar army. Including the maximum beam cannon, which eliminates even the burst cannon, all the anti-extinguishing weapons that can be fired by improving the burst engine are recorded.


G.T.B (Great Thing Black) is almost the same as G.T.V, except with the pattern following the normal Great Thing but having added homing and otherwise faster bullets, a new theme song in "Finale" and the horn lasers leave four of those HUGE nuclear explosions when they are fired, making the attack patterns featuring them a major pain to dodge. However, if you are familiar with defeating G.T.V, then G.T.B should be a challenge, but not an impossible one. He is quite possibly the hardest Darius boss now with G.T.V. just behind him.
