  • Production: Minor-production
  • Material: Trilamnium, Internal Turbolaser Components, Siaber Crystals
  • Classification: Turbolaser
  • Size: Large

  • Ammunition Capacity: Effectively Unlimited

  • Reload Speed: Fast
  • Effective Range: Long Range
  • Rate of Fire: Average

  • Siaber Crystal Power Generator - The heart of the new weapon, the Siaber Crystal that powers each turbolaser is the reason why it has enhanced firepower compared to its predecessor.
  • Enhanced Stopping Power - Due to the Siaber Crystal that powers each turbolaser, the weapons have an enhanced firepower compared to other long range turbolasers
  • Quick Recharge - A design feature carried over from the Neuron Turbolaser, the Fornax has a quicker recharge time than standard long range turbolasers, on par with a normal turbolaser
  • Close Range Misses - Designed to be a long range turbolaser, the Fornax is not an effective weapon against fast moving ships such as starfighters
  • Broken Crystal - Siaber Crystals, if broken, tend to vaporize anything within a given radius depending on the size of the crystal (15 meters for the crystals in these turbolasers

It was a long time coming, but Aurora Industries had finally decided to begin phasing out its older ship weapon designs and designing brand new systems to replace them. As before, the first system that was slated for an upgrade was Aurora's long range turbolaser, the AV-X01 "Neuron" Turbolaser. The system had done its job, but with Aurora looking to incorporate its Siaber Crystal technology more into its systems, a brand new long range turbolaser was created: the AW-Tx01 "Fornax."

Taking design features of the Neuron, the Fornax is centered around a small Siaber Crystal Power Generator to give its lasers more stopping power, while the enhanced galvan coils of the previous model have been incorporated to retain the same recharge rate as before.
