- Shield Disruptor Package
- Shield Penetrator: Every KXB-110 bomb is equipped with a shield disruptor package, which allows the bomb to "pierce" through conventional shielding, theater shields, and planetary shields by creating a temporary gap in the shield that closes behind the missile.
- Lecepanine: The aerosolized lecepanine payload is expands into a cloud of paralytic mist when the bomb detonates over a city block. The lecepanine can take effect through contact with skin, or through inhalation. It can also seep into water.
- Non-lethal: The mist is only a paralytic.
- Imprecise: Once the bomb is away, there is no way to control who is affected by the blast and subsequent mist of lecepanine, especially if the wind speed is strong, as the mist can be blown into unanticipated areas.
Introducing the KXB-110 "Sandman," for when death of the target is not the desired outcome. The Sandman can be detonated at altitude and the mist can cover an entire city block. For maximum effect, multiple Sandmen should be used. Once a person comes into contact with the lecepanine gas, they will experience total muscle paralysis within three seconds and unconsciousness within five. In other words, much faster than the time it takes to go "Oh no, there's paralytic mist, let me put on my gas mask."
Purchasers troubled by a conscience should note that death might still occur from use of the Sandman in the elderly or infirm. Respiratory distress is a possibility and severe allergic reactions are not unheard of.
But it sure beats carpet bombing.
