Antimatter Munitions Launcher

The Antimatter Munitions Launcher is a Lorath weapons system.


When the Lorath first encountered the YSS Sakura, a significant threat of assault was apparent, thus development of a new weapons system became a priority. When it was found that much of the Lorath weapon technology was inferior to the armor technology of the “Grand Star Army of Yamatai”, a munitions was selected that would be able to negate the armor in the most efficient manner, and at the same time be easy to produce. Antimatter based explosives were then selected as the means.

Development of this weapon was carried out during the time frame before the second bout of negotiations with the Yamatai Star Empire.

Visual Description

The appearance of the weapon is similar to that of a modern day “rocket launcher” for the most part. A targeting device is attached to the side of the launcher, the appearance of the device is much like that of a “scope” but it is slightly more bulky. There is a shoulder rest on the rear end of the weapon, a front grip towards the forward area of the weapon, and a small interface panel located on the topside of the weapon, near the targeting display.
