RCPA (Rapid Charged Particle Accelerator) Cannon

The Rapid Charged Particle Accelerator, or RCPA Cannon, is a next generation weapons system designed to be used on the upcoming updated version of the So-M1-1A Erla VANDR, designed to suit blitzkrieg and skirmisher tactics. To prevent detection, it comes with a siphon function that can be adjusted when attempting to infiltrate enemy battle lines and reactivated in combat or in safe zones to rapidly replenish the amount of amount of ammunition it has. In passive mode, it is comparable to the relative stealth of the SCPA (Sniper Charged Particle Accelerator) Cannon, but in active mode is as conspicuous as the heavier ACPA (Assault Charged Particle Accelerator) Cannon. The matter is then excited and given an electrical charge before being fed into a MASC-based linear catapult. The RCPA has shorter range and lower power output than either of the weapons being developed along side it, but has no limitation on ammunition due to greatly improved siphon and charge systems. It is very effective versus conventional materials, and disrupts shielding and electronic systems thanks to the charged properties of the particles.
