Veteran Comments

Read the Veteran Comments policy before editing this section.


The statistics don't show it but the BVas actually does marginally more damage a minute than the BGreen; it is a highly effective weapon.


Calculations point out that this weapon has a yield equivalent to approximately 34.6 GT (Gigatons of TNT) per pulse.
