Ke-B4-W3000 Striker Array

The Ke-B4-W3000 Positron 'Striker' Array is smaller rapid fire adaptation of the Type 26-A with an anti-mecha purpose in mind. Highly compressed 200 kg positron shells (much smaller than the Type A) are fired at a speed of 900c. Shells are fired with a subspace pulse, accelerating them to FTL speeds and are protected with electromagnetic shielding until they leave the firing port. Each port can fire a shell every 5 seconds and there can be up to 250 ports in every array.

The shells inflict heavy damage and are delivered in high yields to incoming enemy mecha. The positrons annihilate electrons they come in contact with, thus destabilizing and destroying molecules, and creating an enormous energy surge through the mecha.

This weapon was specifically designed for the Type 29 production line and refit schedule, but has been extended to the Ascendancy for YE 30. While not providing a full sphere of coverage, it is still more than enough to protect the ship's Power Armor and Shuttle Bays.
