Discharge Information

Firing Mechanism

The weapon is fired by either pressing the firing bottom on a control stick, this draws power from the vehicles generator or capacitor and then runs it through the firing chamber before firing it. During the firing sequence, heat sinks built into the weapons frame will rapidly heat up and vent the heat into the air around the vehicle. It should be warned that touching the barrel during or after firing is not recommended.

Systems

Capacitor

The cannon system has a small capacitor that is used to collect fire that permits the weapon to fire rapidly.

Rapid Fire Cannon

The main part of the cannon assembly is the rapid fire portion of it, this segment fires an x-ray laser.

  • Purpose: Anti-Personnel
  • Damage: PDR 3
  • Range: roughly 1.2 KM's
  • Rate of Fire (Rapid Pulse): Thirty shots every four seconds.
  • Payload: Onboard capacitor allows for up to thirty shots before needing to recharge and cool down.

Targetting System

There is a miniature targetting system used to help determine 'where' the cannon is actually facing by projecting two red laser beams ahead of the cannons up to forty feet away.
