SPECIAL FEATURES

  • Custom designed triple-focused plasma array combines with energy beam to concentrate firepower down a thin axis of attack

Strengths:

  • Extremely powerful blast. Thermal, energy, and kinetic damage.
  • Focused beam allows for strikes to be concentrated on a small target area.

Weaknesses:

  • High power requirements
  • Any blockage of the plasma emitter aperture will cause catastrophic failure on firing due to the beam detonating inside the weapon's barrel.
  • Firing mechanism is susceptible to damage, extremely fragile weapon barrel when deployed

DESCRIPTION

The K-200 is MandalArms' scaled-up, beefed-up version of various Plasma Cannon designs the galaxy over. Rather than going for a plasma bolt, or plasma railgun design, the R&D teams built on the design philosophies of the PPAP infantry weapon, and designed a workable plasma beam weapon, utilizing a stream of plasma in a continuous-hit attack.
 
This weapon is heavy on firepower, following the Australis' philosophy that if you're going to hit a target, hit it as hard as you can, first time. K-200 is designed with this tradition in mind, allowing for accurate, devastaing firepower, focusing three plasma beams into a pressurized concentrated energy stream, pushing the stream of supercharged plasma at high velocity along a tightly focused beam.
 
Larger vessels such as a flagships or command ships would be capable of mounting multiple K-200s in arrays, giving them substantial firepower at a cost of power requirements that would necessitate a significant portion of the ship's power resources being directed towards these powerful but energy hungry weapons.

Built tough in a self-contained, robust package, the K-200 is an elite capital ship weapon, continuing the line of MandalArms starship-grade weaponry. Though vulnerable to attack when deployed, until such time as it is needed, it is kept well protected.

pressurized concentrated energy stream, pushing the stream of supercharged plasma at near-lightspeed velocity along a tightly focused beam.

I hope I don't need to explain why, but there is absolutely zero scenarios where this is being approved. Edit this out, change the wording, whatever - but you're not going to get a weapon that fires any kind of super powerful beam at anything remotely close to being described as near lightspeed.

Lily Kuhn Got a bit excited with the wording there. I've changed it to the more suitable "high velocity". :)

Given that this is essentially a proton beam cannon with a different name, now, this is approved.
