The HAM-127 Charybdis is a platform for the huge Warp Dynamics SK-5 "Starkiller" Warp Accelerator. The Charybdis carries two of these monstrously destructive weapons. Each is capable of creating a localised warp zone, utilising the same technology as warp drive. This tends to have the same effect on matter as the warp-drive, displacing it to another location. However, instead of allowing a ship to teleport between two places, the warp accelerators (and smaller astro accelerators) scatter the particles over a wide area.
The effect is far greater than a random dispersion; the accelerators are actually designed to enhance the scattering effect, totally opposite to a regular warp-drive. In fact, the two technolgies are almost identical in function, but in oppiste polarity. As warp-drives have been known to spectacularly fail when the confinement filed polarity is reversed, it is theoretically conceivable a warp or astro accelerator could be jury-rigged to a crude warp-drive. Such a undertaking has never been attempted in practise, since a failure would be monstrously disaterous to the vessel.
In addition to the warp accelerators, the Charybdis carries a significant number of astro-bursters, hyper-rays and particle pellet turrets, rounding out its considerable firepower.
