Gale (Su)

A tempest behemoth can generate winds of up to hurricane force as a free action, blowing in as many as three different directions at once. The winds blow either away from or directly toward the behemoth in a 30-foot-wide path that extends for 1,000 feet.

Scales (Ex)

A tempest behemoth can hurl up to six scales from its wings (range increment 100 feet) as a standard action.

Thunderbolt (Su)

As a swift action once every 1d4 rounds, a behemoth can shoot a bolt oflightning that deals 15d6 points of electricity damage and 15d6 points of sonic damage, and that causes permanent deafness in a 200-foot line (DC 34 Reflex save halves damage and negates deafness). The save DC is Constitution-based.

Editor's Note
The source is missing the attack bonus for the talons. This has been calculated assuming they are primary natural attacks.
The Feats section refers to "feathers" as a weapon, though the creature does not have that natural attack. The effect of these feats is figured into the values for the scales attack and should be read as such.
