The UX Accelerator

Blue Planet Tech Room Description

The Oxys-Ultor UX Accelerator is an experimental fighter weapons system designed to provide a powerful attack option to experienced pilots. Based on the Redeemer heavy cannon, this smaller caliber cannon fires ultra-dense antimatter-cored projectiles with penetration power unparalleled among conventional fighter-mounted primary weapons. It is currently being field-tested by a selected few squadrons. Intended applications include the rapid destruction of light targets such as freighters, transports, bombers and gunboats, as well as powerful strikes against warship subsystems.

Very powerful against all strike craft and small ships/warships. Good range, fast projectile velocity, and excellent damage make this one of the best fighter-mounted weapons in any Freespace mod, limited primarily in that mounting points for it are very rare: only the Uriel gunship and Ainsarii stealth fighter can mount it, and only one each. You can combine a UX Accelerator with the Sidhe to create a devastating combination: the UX for devastating targets at range, and the Sidhe for finishing off targets easily or dealing enormous damage to targets at very close range (and for intercepting a swarm of warheads at close range). The UX Accelerator does use ammo rather than just energy, but its ammo supply is plentiful enough that it isn't an issue unless you're doing a lot of shooting over time.
