The GTW-5a Prometheus (Cannon) Advanced is a modified variant of the GTW Prometheus developed by the GTI. Among other changes, the Prometheus A fires slower and consumes a bit more power than the Prometheus, but its shots have a greater velocity and range in addition to doing more single-hit damage.

Tech Room Data

Designed as a special-issue upgrade to the standard Prometheus, the Prometheus A retains the compatibility of the original while delivering a higher rate of damage at a greater projectile velocity. These advances come at the cost of a slight increase in energy consumption, but many pilots feel that the tradeoff yields a net benefit. This weapon's deployment is currently restricted to GTI pilots on specially authorized missions.
