Blue Planet Tech Room Description
The SCWS-10 is a fast-firing mass driver developed by Kiribati-Sunder. Helical ammunition feeds supply 20mm HEAP rounds to a rapid-cycle coilgun at 10 rounds per second. Although initially ineffective against modern warship armor, retooled variants of this round defeat the outer layers of most extant fighter and warship defenses with a degenerate uranium penetrator before detonating their payload. Excellent anti-hull performance and good accuracy at range make the SCWS-10 useful in both the warship attack and intercept roles. Damage against shields is limited by the round's tendency to shear and disintegrate on shield surfaces. Although only in limited circulation, the SCWS-10 is notable for its use onboard Uriel gunships, mounted in the first primary bank as a long-range intercept or hull attack option.
