The Freeborn outfit their support teams with the new plasma cannon and fractal cannon.
The plasma cannon is the hardest hitting light support weapon available to any force in Antarean space and frequently used to arm ‘Hunter’ type weapon drones. The plasma cannon is the ultimate light support weapon. It is calibrated to deliver a single very strong pulse, for which an especially long plasma coil is required. All plasma weapons have a defect inherent in plasma coils in that they gradually weaken over time.
This problem is normally overcome by the weapon’s own self‐repair facility. In the case of the plasma cannon, the weapon is so powerful that its battlefield performance can sometimes be affected, causing temporary plasma fade.
Fractal weapons are primarily used for attacking static defences. They are relatively specialist weapons found in the arsenals of most Antarean forces but reserved for urban warfare where they are supremely useful. Fractal weapons utilise molecular resonance to break apart solid material.
Although slow to develop full power, their ability to break apart buildings and machines is almost limitless. They are also known as fractal disintegrators. The fractal cannon is the smallest of these machines and the most readily mobile, but it is correspondingly less powerful that the larger ‘siege’ weapons.
