Does someone know characteristics for following weapons: laser rifle, heavy molecular rifle, heavy gravitic cannon, strike laser, wing pack and crystal grenades. These weapons listed on page 82 (Minbari Factbook), but I can’t find their description.
The Heavy rifle, Heavy cannon, strike laser, and wing pack were all pulled from the text because of an upcoming military project I have been putting together. I think I might manage an errata posted here if people would like. I'll have to pull out some stats that would just end up being teasers, but I don't mind.
Tease away..... I would love too see that Special eratta..... O and any Teaser on this Military thing you where talkn about... .is this gona be a compelation for all Militarys in B5 or Just Minbari.. and Eratta me please August
I have one question :
What this weapon really is? a laser or fusion (advanced charged plasma tech) one ?
The differences are really important to me , because I am working (intermittently) on a home rules supplement about the B5 weapons and armours , and their effects and characteristics , and as the "hard-scifi" fan that I am , I try to give the weapons the most realistic treatment .
Both Laser and fusion weapons are classified in my work as Directed Energy Weapons (DEW) , together with charged plasma (or simply plasma) and particle weapons , and their main characteristics are that the damage inflicted by them is reduced by distance , but also that their maximum range is limited by that factor , while PPGs and slug throwers have a maximum range of 10 times their basic range band .
As I said before , the distinction between laser and fusion weaponry is relatively important to me , because both are affected differently by weather conditions , so I would like to know what is the "official" posture of Mongoose on this .
