The Sonic Suppression Rifle is a riot suppression weapon using infra and ultrasonic waves over a range of frequencies and decibels to incapacitate or kill targets. It was brought into production in early YE 40 by its designer Galactic Horizon and is currently used by their security staff as well as being for sale for any groups who wish to purchase it.
The “low-tech” design and function of the SSR is owed partly to the resources available to Galactic Horizon along with the company directive to achieve the most while using the least, offering an efficient product while expending little resources is a prime way to achieve this.
Function Utilising a multitude of high frequency emitters within the body of the rifle the SSR produces a tone which is then boosted through several small speakers before being projected into the dish and focused into a “beam”. Selecting fire mode does not alter the decibel but rather extends charge time and the “density” of the shot by causing higher air wave vibrations with prolonged frequency exposure.
History As Galactic Horizon grew and developed it soon made plans to bolster its security staff in preparation for its new research labs, with the security upgrade in mind the team designed a fairly basic weapon with the capacity for non-lethal use. After the plans had been finalised Kryss Black consulted Uso and requested a loan big enough to cover the construction of a small production facility in exchange for first dibs on the SSR models produced before public release.
After completing the first batch of prototypes and perfecting the design to avoid any unwanted errors during use Horizon kept their end of the deal and produced as many models as requested by Uso without releasing the product to the public market. Once the preliminary models were complete it was released for public consumption in order to help repay the loan and generate revenue to fund an increase in staff and the new production facility.
General list containing information about the groups involved with the weapon design and production along with listing the weapon type and physical statistics.
Main cylinder body 40cm long and 12cm across with little external markings creating an overall sleek outer look, wider wave focusing dish on the end 5cm long and 22cm across with a central protrusion to assist in wave focusing. Grip hardpoint located just behind the dish with the underbarrel hardpoint just behind that, at the back of the body is the pistol-grip and trigger along with the optional stock. On the right side of the barrel is the insertion point for energy cores which powers the gun.
