Eagle Repeater Bolt Thrower

The Eagle's Claw Repeater Bolt Thrower is a powerful war machine used by the High Elves. [1a]

Having developed powerful torsion war machines such as the Eagle, the Elves have never needed to use more unreliable gunpowder based technology. [1a] Sturdy, durable and portable, it is used on land, on ships and as part of the defences of fortifications and often carried into battle by the Lothern Sea Guard. [2a]

History

The Eagle's Claw has been used by the Elves since the days of Aenarion and has always been effective. [4a]

Mechanism

The Eagle's Claw fires long steel tipped bolts or arrows, the length of elf [4a] and is able to fire them either one at a time or as a volley, although the accuracy of the latter is diminished. [1a] whilst it may not be as dramatic or have the same destructive potential as gunpowder based weapons but its relentless accuracy, efficiency and reliability makes it incredibly dangerous. [4a]

Weapons and Equipment

Quotes

An army that seeks to fight without the protection of the Eagle Claws is clearly courageous or inept. Either way, I wish no part in it.

~ Eodaran Greyhawk, Seamaster.[1]
