Gunnery Officer Report:
- This is the Plasma weapon unique to the TB-80 Devastator.
- If only it didn't take so much energy from the ship, this would be a cheap weapon indeed. It fires nothing more exotic than hydrogen molecules. Of course, these molecules are electronically charged to a state of near-fusion, bearing a strong resemblance to the center of a young star.
- Plasma cannon attacks are generally used against capital ships and other heavily shielded and armored targets. It does a mean number on fighters, if the shot connects, but it is usually too slow for this to be considered viable in a firefight.
