- This SEXP:
- is used for scripted fights, such as the one involving the GVD Psamtik and the GTCv Belisarius in Surrender, Belisarius!
- is affected by the beam's effective range—for example, it cannot be used to fire a BGreen at a target beyond the BGreen's effective range (4000 m)
- is unaffected by beam cooldown, enabling beams with long cooldown times, such as the SGreen, to fire faster than their tabled rate
