Heavy Lasers

We've finally found a workable solution to the heat dissipation issues we've struggled with when attempting to create a more powerful laser weapon for our troops. Although this variant still operates near the limit of what would ordinarily be considered "safe" operating temperatures, we believe it is stable enough at this point to begin fabrication in engineering. While developing this heavy laser for our troops, we also blueprinted a variation suitable for mounting to our Interceptors. Attaching this weapon to one of the ship's hardpoints should provide a significant boost in firepower to our pilots when engaging the alien craft.

This technology has also enabled the fabrication of full size railguns for use by cybernetically enhanced soldiers.
