Description

A unique kinetic weapon with outstanding parameters.
Critical hit chance increases with weapon temperature.


Weapon history

‘Vulcan’ is the legendary kinetic weapon from the times of humanity's stellar expansion. It can be mounted on all frigates of ranks 4 to 17.
A transport convoy, carrying cargo from an archaeological site was recently attacked. The discovered ancient object turned out to be a repository of old tech from the times of humanity's stellar expansion: weapons, vehicles, modules and terabytes of project documentation.
It is said that the excavation is headed by a special expedition from Erebus System. According to rumours circulating among the mercenaries, the expedition was very difficult and risky, but researchers believe iridium can breathe a new life into these forgotten technologies. The black market already has parts of ‘Vulcan’ weapons from the attacked convoy and, judging by the strong demand, the hopes for ancient technology are justified.
