GTW-24 Vulcan

Description

Procyon Insurgency Tech Room Description

The GTW-24 Vulcan is the next-generation Avenger cannon, a high-speed mass weapon with a very high rate of fire. Unlike the Avenger, however, instead of using a chambered combustion reaction, the Vulcan uses an array of powerful electromagnets to propel its superheated semi-molten uranium shells toward its target. The ammunition itself is microscopic and very compact in its solid state, and a typical fighter can carry several million rounds at one time. The Vulcan is very effective against armor and hull plating, and although not nearly as powerful as the Maxim cannon, has much better fighter loadout compatibility and also does appreciable damage to shields due to the very high temperatures of its projectiles

These guns in terms of damage per second are better than the Prometheus S but worse than the Kayser.(90 armour, 45 shield, 45 Subsystem)
