105 Time Dreadnought

(aka Type 105)

Five centuries years after the beginning of hostilities, the Time Lords were starting to lose the Time War. By this point, the enemy could detect any grouping of 12 or more timeships, and was capable of mounting an attack on that time zone. While the 103 and 104 Forms continued to be produced, the House Military took its mandate to a new level with the 105-Form Time Dreadnought. Like the 104-Form, the Type 105 was rumoured to possess recidivist genes from the original 102-Form that had been re-activated to make the breed more powerful. Also, like the 104, the 105s were designed to be both male and female. Certainly they were significantly more advanced then the 103. Time Dreadnoughts were designed to aggressively fight the Daleks. Each Time Dreadnought was equipped with hundreds of copies of Gallifrey's Prime Eye of Harmony, allowing them to carry and discharge hundreds of times as much power.

In order to combat the enemy's ability to detect multiple materializations, the 105 was capable of extending itself simultaneously through every point in the space and time noosphere of the Time Lords. This allowed one single capsule to deliver the offensive power of hundreds of TARDISes to any point at the spiral politic. The downside of this tactic is that the Dreadnought could be attacked by any temporal weapon located anywhere in space and time. This drawback lead to tactics of overwhelming violence to ensure that no counter-strike was possible. To this end, the Time Dreadnought was equipped with a massive Time Destructor. Powered by the mineral Taranium and the hundreds of Eyes and these Eyes, this weapon could erase an entire star system from history and easily rupture the exo-shell of a TARDIS.
