|The SCWS-6 Rapier|
Blue Planet Tech Room Description
The Federation's premier fighter weapons system, manufactured by the Oxys-Ultor Threat Workshop on Mars. The SCWS-6 Rapier is a descendant of the Great War-era Prometheus cannon with an improved cyclic rate of fire. Sophisticated fire control computers gather spectral and profile data from the target via lidar and regulate shot packaging for consistent, optimized damage. Quick, precise, and reliable, the Rapier provides primary firepower for the Kentauroi interceptor and the mighty Uriel gunship. Deployment is widespread in Second and Third Fleets.
|Rate of Fire||5.00 shots per second|
