The Suppression Monorail Fortress Thanatos is the downtown Sydney boss in Strikers 1945 III.
In Battle Edit
In it's first form, Thanatos appears as an armored train with three stages; the rear trailer, which shoots slow moving projectiles and bullets; the middle carriage, which shoots large fast-moving projectiles, and the engine itself, which shoots patterns of large fast-moving bullets to the rear, and has a 360 degree bullet launcher which shoots streams of darts. Once you have destroyed the engine carriage, the second form is ejected from the front where it is revealed to be a flying mech.
Attacks in this form:
- streams small slow moving pellets from the mouth
- fast moving medium sized bullets from the shoulder cannons. (Watch out for when it fires 360 degree in salvos.)
- groin machine gun (fires darts in a rotating Y-shape)
After it fires the 360 degree salvo, it will put it's arms together: this is when it is about to reveal it's core. When it flings it's arms out, fly straight up the center of the screen, and stop near the blue orb.
