The Torrent Mechanized Plasma Repeater is a plasma weapon developed by the New Dusk Conclave's Black Wing Enterprises in YE 41 as part of a cooperative effort with Osman Heavy Industries. It was originally developed as a rifle for the VF-41 Sparrowhawk, though it is fully capable of being used on ship turrets or on vehicles.
The Torrent MPR was developed in YE 41 as a part of the NDC's contribution to the VF-41 project. Its purpose was to serve as an anti-mecha and anti-fighter weapon for the fighter, though in testing it served adequately in an anti-small-ship role, proving capable of doing damage to small ships and shuttles with strafing runs.
The Torrent was, while designed initially for use on the VF-41 Sparrowhawk, the weapon's designers found the design flexible enough to be easily reconfigured for use on other platforms, such as armored vehicles, ships, and stationary defenses. In addition to that reconfigurability, the original design of the Torrent, for use on the Sparrowhawk, made it able to collapse its stock, barrel, and handle for easy use on the flanks of the Sparrowhawk's fighter mode, making it not dissimilar to the gunpod style weapon used by the U-1.
Though the appearance of the Torrent MPR can vary based on its mounting, in its original configuration it resembled a rifle with a roughly rectangular barrel.
