Bowships were warcraft used by the Time Lords in their war against the Great Vampires.

Armaments Edit

The primary weapon of a bowship was a launcher firing a "mighty bolt of steel" capable of killing a Great Vampire if it pierced it through the heart. (Great Vampires absorbed attacks from directed energy weapons and rapidly regenerated damage from minor projectiles.) (TV: State of Decay)
