The Light Charged Particle Accelerator, or LCPA Cannon, is a main weapons array found on most vehicles smaller than a starship. It uses a matter collection system that gathers light particles and gases found in most conditions and feeds them into an accelerator array. The matter is then excited and given an electrical charge before being fed into a MASC-based linear catapult. It is then fired out at supersonic speeds, where it inflicts potentially heavy damage to most targets. On impact, the contained particle beam spreads out, inflicting splash damage to nearby surfaces. It is very effective versus conventional materials, and disrupts shielding and electronic systems thanks to the charged properties of the particles.
