As Humanity, Orkdom, and the other known powers of our galaxy expand their territories, they find themselves increasingly surrounded by technologically advanced space empires. The Tau/Kroot, the Necrons, and the Fra'al are just a few of these new threats. To compund these dangers, it seems that some of Humanity's old, familliar enemies are ready to take advantage of this situation, in more ways than one.
Recently, on the North-Eastern fringes of Imperial space, large Ork vessels have been sighted sporting large broadside arrays of unidentified energy weapons. Intelligence has shown that the local Ork populations refer to these weapons as "Disintygratahs". Imperial Navy battle reports indicate that the focused beams have the power to disintegrate matter at the molecular level. The technology is quite advanced, suggesting it was stolen or salvaged from another race by the Orks. Its poor implementation seems to coraborate this theory. At their full output, the disintigrators can be incredibly powerful. However, the jerry-rigging of alien, Ork, and human technologies leaves the whole system open to accidents and frequent misfires. Imperial Xenologists have come to expect such shoddyness from Ork ships and technologies.
If the disintegrators wern't intimidating enough,
most Zappahs also carry standard Ork attack craft, allowing them to readily defend themselves
from enemy ordnance and even send out attack craft waves to opponents. It also seems that these
worrysome weapons are being mounted on Grand Cruiser sized hulls. Being Ork, these cruiser-sized
ships can take a battleship-sized beating before being crippled or destroyed.
