Development Thread: NA
Manufacturer: Mandal Hypernautics
Model: Tracyaat Walker
Affiliation: Open Market
Modularity: None
Production: Mass-Produced
Material: Durasteel, Duraplast, other materials.

Description:
This self propelled artillery piece fires a brilliant blue ball of superheated plasma centered around a small electro-magnetic shell. The small electronic device emits an electromagnetic field that holds the plasma tightly around itself while in flight. When the core strikes a target, it shatters and the electromagnetic field dissipates. No longer contained and pressed in upon itself by the electromagnetic field, the plasma explodes violently, expanding to five times its condensed size before cooling and dissipating. Between the electromagnetic field that surrounds the ball of plasma before it detonates and the the violent explosion of superheated plasma gas the follows, this weapon has a devastating effect on electronics and flesh and can even melt several inches of starship grade Durasteel.

For the most part, the weapon fires like any other artillery piece. Accounting for projectile fall-off, distance, and wind speeds, the gunner aims well above his target and fires the ball of superheated plasma into the air. However, due to the electromagnetic properties of the projectile, it often drifts towards any large metallic object in or near its path. As such, the weapon is generally not used when there are friendly starships hovering in the battlespace.

The walker itself is slow, ponderous, but well armored. As a necessity, the vehicle's electronic systems are insulated to protect them from the electromagnetic properties of the weapon that it fires. Likewise, to keep from damaging itself with its own weapon, the armor that coats the vehicle is treated with thermal insulating properties on the inside and thermal dissipating properties on the outside. The combined effect keeps the vehicle from damaging itself and makes the armor marginally better at withstanding blaster fire, though nowhere near as well as if it had been plated with Beskar.

Only carrying 42 rounds in the vehicle itself, this mid to rear line vehicle often relies on a several cargo loader droids to bring it fresh supplies of ammunition in an active war-zone.

It's a little light. The AGM Howitzer module, is smaller than this and around 12.5 tons, or 11,000-12,5000 Kilograms, depending on which ton is used. Big guns are really heavy. I like the concept of a plasma vomiting walker-tank, though. Tweak the weight to something more in line with the scale, and we'll be talking. @[member="Captain Larraq"]
