The Dragon's Breath or S6-HPT, is a plasma thrower developed by Section Six for use in biohazard containment scenarios such as a recent minor outbreak of Mayer Strain following the death of Sgt Blake. It was however, renamed the following year as S6 became the nation known as the New Dusk Conclave, where production was eventually taken over by Black Wing Enterprises.
It was developed based on recovered or improvised hydrazine flamethrowers used in the containment event in late YE40.
Due to recent encounters with mutamorphic bioweapons and the resultant horrors, Section 6 continues to grow adept at containing and cleansing such sites. The current modus operandi is to immobilize or kill infected with HAR1-1 fire, then sweep with hydrazine sprayers to dehydrate the remaining cells and ignite to burn the remains.
Enter the S6-HPT, a hydrazine and deuterium fired plasma thrower, capable of disintegrating corpses at the molecular level and ensuring zero infectivity of remains.
Here is the production data on the dragon's breath.
The Dragon's Breath is a bit bulky, but very advanced in appearance. The weapon is a curvy and straight line combination that make up the shape of this large man-portable heavy weapon. The plasma nozzle is on four long pronged struts that are arranged around rows of magnetic field generating rails. A curved plate of Aegium is mounted at the base of this nozzle, which shields the complex pump systems that form the rear of the weapon. Two cylinder like containers are mounted on the side of this weapon, the lower and largest being a pressurized tank, and a smaller one which has rounded ends, which contains the plasma core. A set of grips sit atop the rear half of the weapon, a display sitting before them which shows the weapons system readouts and fuel levels.
Here is the data on the weapon's behavior when fired.

Hydrazine is not only dangerously unstable, but it is also an extreme hydrophilic, forming hydrazine hydrate when contacting any form of water containing substrate, such as living tissue. This allows degradation of infected cells and destruction of virus and bacterial pathogens before being ignited and burning any remains to ash.
