Breachers are weapons designed to breach the target's unifield shields before detonating. Breacher weapons come in missile, mine, shell and grenade format. Breacher missiles are usually deployed from launcher blisters, but are sometimes equipped with teraport systems, turning them into terapedoes. Breacher weapons work by emitting a focused blast of gravy, which punches a hole in the target's defenses. This is followed by the main warhead; for instance, an antimatter detonation or a limpet mine. They vary in size from the tiny one Commander Kevyn Andreyasn habitually wears as an epaulet, all the way up to the troop-ship-sized monsters brandished by battleplates.
