The Ge-D1-W3300 is a next generation of the positron cannon from the Ge-L3-1A - Vampire-Class Patrol Craft. The weapon is tied to the CDD of the Specter. If the CDD is non-operational, then the weapon system is disabled.
The cannon takes the peristaltic waves generated by the CDD and channels them into the main chamber. The chamber is flooded with antimatter, the peristaltic waves excite the antimatter within the containment field to a high energy plasma state. Then output of the distortion field is channeled into the barrel of the cannon and project the plasma at high velocity. The plasma stays coherent for two seconds if the bolt has not struck an object it detonates with the interstellar matter.
The Specter has eight hard points that weapons can be mounted onto. The systems listed below are the standard, but the owner can change them. However, the hard points are intended for retractable weapons. Weapons on the bottom must retract because of the limited ground clearance.
