Yugumo E2 Energy Pistol

Derived from the United Outer Colonies Peacekeeping Forces' Mugen Armories E1 Energy Pistol, this updated version was released in YE 43 after a brief resumption in production of the original model. With a more efficient, more powerful, and lighter-weight battery and emitter, the E2 does not utilize scalar technology in order to remain compliant with restrictions on the use of scalar weaponry outside the military. Instead, it uses the same technology first developed for the KAIMON Ascendant Companion's Energy Pulse Weapon. The E2 is Yugumo Corporation Standard Issue, and available on the civilian market. There is also a stun-mode only version intended for civilian personal use that lacks the lethal mode and heavy stun setting, the E2c.

About the E2

After regulations restricted use of scalar weaponry in the Yamatai Star Empire to Star Army of Yamatai use only, Yugumo Corporation's Mugen Armories E1 Energy Pistol needed to be re-engineered to continue production. Using the same frame, with a slightly updated look, and newer, more streamlined components to save weight, the E2 is an evolutionary step, rather than a radical departure.

E2c

The E2c is intended for home and personal defence by private citizens as the primary market, with low-threat commercial use such as retail security as a secondary. It is lighter and cheaper, and lacks the lethal firing mode, as well as the heavy stun setting.

Appearance

A sleek, ergonomic, mid-sized pistol, the E2 takes many design cues from its predecessor, the Mugen E1, and that weapon's chemical-powered, slug-throwing ancestor, the Sitanin Zbrojovka Model 79. Though sharing the base frame (albeit constructed of different materials), the shapes and lines of the emitter, battery, and grip have been updated and modernized. LED indicators on the top-rear of the unit above the battery display safety status (white armed/off safe), lethal/nonlethal status (blue stun/amber lethal, not present on the E2c), and charge status in both a bar graph and digital shot counter (respecting stun/lethal mode). Removing the grip reveals a small storage area.

Discharge Information

The civilian-marketed E2c variant lacks both the lethal mode, and the heavy stun (Tier 2) mode.

Stun Mode

  • Muzzle Flash: Small spherical flash of light around emitter the same color as beam
  • Retort: A soft, buzzing pulse as surrounding air is heated and ionized
  • Beam Appearance: Pale Blue Cone, 15º apex
  • Effective Range: 100m
  • Rate of Fire: One pulse per trigger pull
  • Recoil: Negligible

Lethal Mode

  • Muzzle Flash: Small spherical flash of light around emitter the same color as beam
  • Retort: A loud, crackling pulse as surrounding air is ionized and heated to plasma states
  • Beam Appearance: Bright Blue Beam
  • Effective Range: 300m
  • Rate of Fire: One pulse per trigger pull
  • Recoil: Negligible

Energy Source

The E2 uses the specially-designed BR-E2a battery, developed from the BR-E1a battery used in the E1. Due to advances in battery technology, it is approximately equal to three of the prior generation, much as the YB-28A Triple-Power Magazine is to the BR-28 Series Battery Magazine, while being significantly lighter than its predecessor.

  • BR-E2a battery magazine (20 mm wide, 70 mm tall) – 25 KS
  • Purpose: Tier 0-Tier 2 Medium Anti-Personnel (Stun), Tier 2 Medium Anti-Personnel (Lethal)
  • Round Capacity: 150 shots stun, 60 shots lethal

Replaceable Parts and Components

The E2 shares many of the same parts in common with its predecessor, with the exception of the emitter/electronics component, updated grips, and higher capacity, more efficient battery. In the case of the battery, the earlier BR-E1a is still functionally compatible, but heavier and with lower (1/3) capacity. The GP-E1 grips grips may be used for the classic look. Although the frame is the same shape, the E2 frame is made of hollow plastoid filled with ADNR.

  • BR-E2a battery magazine (20 mm wide, 70 mm tall) – 25 KS
  • GP-E2a black plastoid/molecure grips – 10 KS
  • BA-E2a emitter/electronics component (sealed unit, top half of the pistol) – 600 KS
  • BA-E2c stun-only emitter/electronics component (sealed unit, top half of the pistol) – 350 KS
  • LL-E2a Multicolor Light and Laser Package – 100 KS
  • LN-E1a removable, frame-mounted lanyard loop (located on the bottom of the butt) – 2 KS
  • ST-E1a removable rear dovetail sight + fore compact light-pipe sight – 5 KS
