The LGPM-230 Gotteszorn, or God's Wrath in Corsain is an Intergalactic Ballistic Missile developed by General Dynamics Strategic Weapons corps. using a Supernova Core.  The LGPM-230 is developed to be launched from the surface of a planet from a fixed silo where it will exit the atmosphere of the planet using a 3-stage engine system.  The first two stages use solid fuels while the 3rd stage uses a liquid fuel that can be started and stopped as needed.  This is necessary for the missile to run course correction while en route to target. The fourth stage is a miniaturized Space-Bending engine that allows the missile to leap an enormous distance to the target to not only cut down on time travelled, but less exposure to possible radar and sensors.

The Gotteszorn mounts the largest Supernova Core ever developed, 4 Exatons. It releases 17.5 XettaJoules at the time of impact.  The sheer amount of energy released from the explosion can vaporize smaller planets.

The missile is very large and extremely heavy, but the extra size allows for thicker armor and many more sensors and arrays to be equipped on the missile to aid in its flight.  It is also equipped with vector thrust capabilities and smaller nozzles to aid with controlling itself.

The extreme cost of the missile is prohibitive.  The Corsain Military only keeps 4 of these missiles in its arsenal.  Due to the existential lethality these missiles possess, the Supernova Core is kept separated from the weapon in a disassembled state until the weapon is required for use.
