Prototype Starburst Shockwave Cannon
The Aldrin version of the Terran SSC.
A deadly weapon found on frigates, destroyers and carriers.
Commonly used by United Space Command capital ships, the Starburst Shockwave Cannon is an advanced, energy-based version of the rather basic flak weapons used by other races. A projectile is fired outwards and once it reaches its maximum range, it activates and sends powerful energy waves outwards, damaging any nearby ships.
This weapon is slightly less potent and with a slightly lower refire rate than its mainstream counterpart, but nevertheless is still an exceptionally deadly flak weapon.
