GTW-81 Phalanx

Description

Procyon Insurgency Tech Room Description

The GTW-81 Phalanx is the newest incarnation of high power laser weaponry, much in the line of the Prometheus cannons. Unlike the Prometheus, however, its power generation module utilizes a hydrogen/nitrogen reaction that results in exceedingly high damage ratings and a very high velocity. However, the Phalanx has an extensive fire wait cycle and its repeated usage will quickly drain even the largest fighter energy reserves, so make every shot count when using this weapon.

If you line up 4 shots, it delivers a massive 360 damage. That is roughly the equivalent of a Trebuchet. This weapon is very useful against stealthy ships as it can hit hard and has a noticeable knock back.
