Tempest

Tempest is an extremely powerful vehicle armed with two heavy Heat Rays and a Black Smoke canister launcher.

The tempest machine is twice as tall as a standard fighting machine, with 4 legs instead of 3 - making it a quad pod. It may be that the Martians intended to build them to wipe out humanity faster but died before they could construct them.


Jeff Wayne's The War of the Worlds (1998 Video Game)Edit

The Tempest is one of - if not the most - powerful Martian machine available in the game. In order to unlock it, the player needs to research Level 2 Fighting Machines to design them, while there must be an Explosives Plant in the zone in order to build them.


Jeff Wayne's The War of the Worlds (1999 Video Game)Edit

The Tempest appears in the game as a boss at the end of Level 7, where it battles the HMS Thunder Child. Unlike in the 1998 game where the Tempest's heat rays appear as a beam of light similar to the standard Fighting Machines, the Tempest's Heat Rays fire Green energy spheres.
