The Terran option for anti-fighter armament, and for more powerful, energy-based M7 arming (compared to the corvette-level M/AML).

Encyclopedia Entry[edit]

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.


The Terran analogue to the Flak Artillery Array this powerful weapon is slightly superior in damage output when compared to its (Teladian) Commonwealth counterpart. Its shot speed is slower and on par with the CFA, though accuracy is not compromised. It has a massive drain on ship energy, so be sparing with your shots. While it's great as an anti-fighter weapon when mounted to turrets, the incredible energy drain can cause problems.
