OUT OF CHARACTER INFORMATION

PRODUCTION INFORMATION
  • Manufacturer: Aurora Industries
  • Model: AW-Ex01 "Orionis" Electromagnetic Plasma Cannon
  • Affiliation: Aurora Industries, Closed-Market
  • Modularity: None

  • Production: Minor-production
  • Material: Sianium, Trilamnium, Internal Weapon Components
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS
  • Classification: Electromagnetic Plasma Cannon
  • Size: Large
  • Weight: Heavy
  • Ammunition Type: Sianium-agitated Magnetic Plasma
  • Ammunition Capacity: Ten Canisters of Sianium-agitated Magnetic Plasma (each canister allows for three shots before it is depleted)

  • Reload Speed: Slow
  • Effective Range: Average
  • Rate of Fire: Average
  • Stopping Power: Very Low (against shielded targets), Extreme (against unshielded targets)
  • Recoil: High
SPECIAL FEATURES
  • Sianium Enhancement - Due to the plasma rounds fired by the cannon being agitated by Sianium, they provide a devastating power against unshielded targets, even more so than the predecessor cannon.
Strengths:
  • Disintegration - Against an unshielded target, the plasma fired by the cannons can disintegrate bulkheads and hull plating fairly easily
Weaknesses:
  • No Disintegrations - Against a ray shielded target however, the plasma fired by the cannons will cause only a light strain on shields, if any. More than likely, it will be a nice brief light show
DESCRIPTION

As part of the ongoing need to modernize the weapons Aurora Industries made, sold, and used in their ship construction, the AV-01 "Nebula" EM Plasma Cannon was officially getting an upgrade. Dubbed the AW-Ex01 "Orionis" Electromagnetic Plasma Cannon, the new cannon was an improvement in firepower that had been sorely needed for the weapon system.

Utilizing Aurora's Sianium technology, the engineers decided Siaber Crystals were not a good fit for the project, the plasma canisters were subjected to an agitation process using the Sianium material. The new plasma, when fired, would have an even more devastating effect on unshielded targets, capable of disintegrating hulls and bulkheads fairly easily. The problem of ray shields continued, but at least for this cannon, someone being attacked by it might be entertained by the colorful splashes of plasma barely making a dent in them.
