The Tasha-type Plasma Cannon is a hybrid technology utilizing laser cannon and plasma cannon knowledge to create it. Downsizing the type of plasma cannon that had been seen on the Aggressor-type Star Destroyer in the ancient Rebellion era. The purpose [SIZE=10pt]of[/SIZE] downsizing the plasma cannon was so that it may be utilized by smaller vessels up to 200m. This gave Primo Victoria another option to look at for weapons when building ships meant to disable a target or simply become a nuance to a target.
The downside to the Tasha is that it is not effective against shielded targets. While yes, the Tasha can bring shields down eventually. It may be wise to just use an ion cannon if you are looking to bring them down in a timely manner. Secondly, the Tasha cannot tear through hulls rather she may leave scorch marks in her wake as she attempts to disable her target. She cannot, however, burn through them. Finally, the Tasha is vulnerable to ion and projectile weaponry.
Disturbance: Designed to cause [SIZE=10pt]an electrical[/SIZE] disturbance, unshielded targets may become disabled.
Interception: Can be used to intercept/disrupt missiles on their way to a target.
Overtime: The Tasha can bring down shields overtime and being fired repeatedly or en masse.
Hull: Does not have enough power to tear through hulls, although it may leave scorch marks.
Shield: Cannot bypass shields, not effective against shielded targets.
Timely: There are more effective methods of bringing down shields, this weapon is not one of those weapons.
Disabled: The plasma cannon can be disabled by projectile weaponry or ion weaponry.
