The Hailstorm is a kinetic rail shotgun designed, and built by Section 6 in mid-YE 40. It is designed to give measurable firepower in close quarters, or situations that require crowd control. It is fielded by the USO, and Section 6, as well as being sold commercially for civilian use. However, it's been grandfathered into use by the New Dusk Conclave, and produced by Black Wing Enterprises now.
The S6-KAS was designed and built in mid-YE 40 when Section 6 realized SABER needed a close quarters weapon with considerable fire power, even for armored targets. So the weapons department got together and came up with the Hailstorm, a kinetic rail shotgun that fires steel balls at high velocity. Capable of taking down armored, and unarmored targets alike.
The Hailstorm is two and a half feet long and designed basically as kinetic rails with a magazine behind them, and all in a sturdy frame. The rails slightly stick out of the barrel, and have rings encompassing them around the barrel, which have lights to indicate power is running through them.
