The Thunderchild-class battleship was commissioned from Upwell by the New Eden Common Defense Initiative while the organization was still a counter-Triglavian strategy group headed by Provost Marshal Kasiha Valkanir. When EDENCOM was officially announced as the new central command for the defense of New Eden in YC122, the research and development of a line of ships capable of bearing radical new weaponry was widely rumored following Triglavian raids on Upwell development facilities.
The Upwell Consortium had been working on adapting Arcing Vorton Projector weaponry to a ship-based form since the success of the technology as an anti-fleet weapon on Keepstar Citadels. The first Triglavian invasions in mid-YC121 spurred that effort on even before EDENCOM underwrote the project, providing access to scientists and engineers from the secret weapons programs of the four core empires, and even the SoCT.
The Thunderchild-class was conceived as the striking fist of counter-Triglavian fleets when commissioned by EDENCOM. This battleship is oriented around maximum firepower with high-output, rapid-charging Arcing Vorton Projectors delivering a blizzard of arc strikes against squadrons of enemy ships.

Like all other EDENCOM ships available , Thunderchild weapons will deal damage to 5 enemys each cycle at around 400-500 DPS to each with max skills , and with a high volley of damage and long range of vorton projectors (Even with short range ammo) Fleet of thunderchilds can easily do any null sec combat sites , (if someone drop a wubble on a Rats spawn point) , but they are not just amazing for ratting , they can be amazing for gatecamps as they don't need to lock someone to deal damage to him . plus all of their damage , you can use EM or KN damage types for their weapon , leaving them amazing for ratting in null sec (they are amazing against all factions , but second to Angel cartel rats) Fleet of 5 thunderchilds can deal 2000-2500 DPS to each rat in the site, and if you count the chain , they deal more than 10000 dps to site at range of more than 40 or 50 km , but not just that , they have one of the best shield tanks out there with resist of 20 on EM and TH and 50 on explosive and KN , a single thunderchild without the count of command bursts can reach 175k of EHP with high resists .
