Plasma/MA Turret

Plasma/MA Turret

Even though this weapon emits super-heated plasma, from a technical and physical standpoint it is still considered a mass accelerator. Contrary to other MA weapons, the Plasma/MA system does not fire pellets; instead it employs small dots of ionised matter drawn one at a time from a magnetic storage device.\n \nDespite its many shortcomings \(low muzzle velocity, low firing rate and low accuracy\) the Plasma/MA causes relatively high levels of damage; its kinetic energy is fully effective on impact and the super-heated plasma spreads destruction over a larger area immediately after impact.\n \nIneffective against agile vessels such as fighters with their ability to dodge the slow moving plasma dots, the Plasma/MA is the weapon of choice against larger vessels such as capital ships.
