Blue Planet Tech Room Description

The Stormrider Systems Arashi is the main secondary armament of the Solaris class Destroyer. It's a fast-firing mass driver designed to be more flexible than the Varunastra series, substituting a high cyclic rate of fire for sheer impact mass. Tactical doctrine is to use these weapons to quickly disarm and disable enemy vessels at close range.

The UED Solaris mounts twelve of these. It doesn't do a tremendous amount of armor or subsystem damage, it is even with the Mass Driver in terms of armor damage per second. Although it does not have the damage rate potential of the Point Defense Turret it does have nearly three times the range. With its speed and range it can act as an effective long range bomb interceptor for the Solaris as well.
