The Ke-M17-W3701 Variable Speed Plasma Rifle is a special anti-armor weapon developed for new combat armors in YE 37 by Ketsurui Fleet Yards. While the rifle moniker is something of a misnomer, the VSPR is a high powered plasma weapon capable of firing in two modes: The first mode similar to the Ke-M2-W2909 Accelerated Plasma Rifle; while the second mode fires a high energy, semi-guided plasma slug similar to MARAUDER. The VSPR is mounted in a pair on an Armor's Rear hardpoint, with multiple cooling fins sticking out the rear of the weapon. When in use the VSPRs hinge forward and slide underneath the armor's armors.
In Plasma Slug Mode, the VSPR fires a semi-guided Plasma Slug that slams into enemy armors and tanks, punching through shields and penetrating light armor. Unfortunately, Plasma Slug mode generates a great deal of heat.
