Description

Blue Planet Tech Room Description

The Cavalier is the main gun of the White Knights' Lao Tze fighter. It is a rotary weapons system with impressive capabilities, but its exact specifications are classified beyond ordinary levels of clearance.

Checking clearance: cleared.

The Cavalier is a packaged plasma weapon of remarkable derivation and effect. Technologically, it is a clear descendant of the GTW-5 Prometheus cannon, firing laser-excited high-energy plasma in a magnetic bottle. Unlike the Prometheus, its shot packaging has been optimized for performance against shields, and it deals nearly 50% more damage per shot due to improved fire control systems - similar to those used in the Rapier weapon - and superior raw power.
