DESCRIPTION
The Cumulonimbus Flextube Arc Cannon is a Flextube module designed by the Yurbian Republic to be used in their Y-TIEs as an alternative to standard ordinance. This Arc Cannon is capable of being mounted to any vessel that incorporates Flextube launchers. The weapon is a "lightning gun" that can be used by the slower craft to more easily hit enemy fighters in dogfighting situations, and allow them attack multiple targets at once. While the weapons are effective, their lower range when compared to other fighterboard weapons, along with the fact that they weapons take up a launch tube each, will often cause issues.
