The fixed version of this beam is a terror, the second most damaging beam (sustained damage / second) of any in FreeSpace 2, falling behind the dreaded BFRed. There is some debate on how it is fitted into the relatively small GTSG Mjolnir sentry cannon. The tracking version of this beam is more or less equivalent to the BGreen in sustained damage / second, but has a faster recharge time of seven seconds (compared to the BGreen).
