The Yehat Terminator is a small yet powerful vessel that possesses moderate movement characteristics (maximum speed, turn rate and acceleration). It is capable of inflicting heavy damage at close range and rendering itself temporarily immune to most enemy attacks.

Specifically, Terminators are armed with dual short-range rapid-fire ion pulse cannons. In addition, Terminators are equipped with an energy force shield that will repel almost any attack. An Syreen Penetrator's song, a VUX Intruder's limpets, and a Shofixti Scout's Glory Device detonation are some of the few (but not all) attacks that can penetrate the Terminator's shield. Unfortunately, Terminators have a comparatively small energy store, although it does regenerate rather quickly. Despite this rapid energy generation, there is not sufficient power for constant firing and shielding. Proper timing, sensible weapon useage and conservation of energy for shields are of paramount importance.

Given their moderate speed and maneuverability, gravity whips courtesy of the planet can prove quite useful (be it for escape or strafing runs). Not without it's faults, the Yehat Terminator remains one of the most potent combat vessels in the game, particularly when mastered.
