War TARDISes and Form 100 Timeships
"The name is supposed to be ironic. Obviously."
One of the reasons the Time Lords never created War TARDISes before was that they didn't want to give destructive capabilities to an incomprehensible intelligence. In fact the idea of mounting weapons on a Pre-War TARDIS (though possible) was laughable. For this reason it took 2 million years before TARDISes were accepted by the Time Lords as viable weapons in a Time War. But with predictions of a coming Time War with an unknown enemy the Time Lords set to work creating the first War TARDISes. Military Elite Technician Nivet (the finest technician in the Kasterborous Quadrant) helped create these new Military TARDISes.
Like earlier types of TARDIS, a War TARDIS has a minimal awareness of humanoid life. And like earlier types they are probably powered by black holes. Unlike previous TARDIS designs, War TARDISes have their Time Lord operator permanently installed inside their guidance systems. Using their mathematical mass they can block off areas of space-time from entrance or exit by other time travelers. No known Human (or Post-Human) weapon can destroy a War era TARDIS. They are organized into Fleets of at least 1,000 ships. Each fleet is subdivided into Centuries of 100 War TARDISes.
These new TARDISes are equipped with Chaotic Limiters, which adjust the crew's affect on History by changing their reality quotient. They are set for lower settings for scouting missions and higher settings for assaults. War Era Timeships conceal themselves by embedding themselves into local culture - making it even harder to notice. They can create insubstantial perceptual illusions to defend against internal threats. If a ship is destroyed while in stealth mode then it will release a cultural shock wave that will be felt by everyone on the planet. It should be noted that the for most of the Time War the Time Lords suspect that the enemy timeships were capable of much higher reality quotient settings then their War TARDISes were.
