The plasma cannon is the hardest hitting light support weapon available to any force in Antarean space and frequently used to arm ‘Hunter’ type weapon drones.
The plasma cannon is the ultimate light support weapon. It is calibrated to deliver a single very strong pulse, for which an especially long plasma coil is required. All plasma weapons have a defect inherent in plasma coils in that they gradually weaken over time. This problem is normally overcome by the weapon’s own selfrepair facility. In the case of the plasma cannon the weapon is so powerful that its battleﬁeld performance can sometimes be aﬀected, causing temporary plasma fade.
