Description

Wings of Dawn Tech Room Description

Designed and produced by the Silva weapons development center, this weapon became the trademark of the Caliburn heavy fighter. The VX-71c Pulsar cannon fires a massive Ion burst capable of ripping smaller targets apart with a single shot. On the downside, the VX-71c requires a lot of energy to fire and has a long recharge time between shots.

The Guardian Angel class also mounts this weapon on four turrets. If results show this is effective, other new capital ship design will also be equipped with them.

Incredible single shot firepower, but has terrible damage per second. It's good for attacking things like capital ships. On the downside, this is fit only on the Caliburn fighter, which has rather poor stats.
