_ The DVD
Cordan rifles are again another accomplishment of DVD Standards.
Reliable and user friendly. They are made the same as their counterparts
the Coras pistols, with longer ranges and higher powers. The major
diference is the use of the added Turbo Laser Accelerator
attatchment for the barrel of the weapon.
later, after the advent of DVDs success, the Turbo Laser
attatchment was a great bonus to its already powerful laser capability.
The attatchment inhances (doubles) the weapons range, this also
increased its damage only a minute amount, yet a welcome addition.
(+20 MD to final damage.)
_ Another addition
was the use of Grenades. Not common to DVD, the grenade systems
are not a great advancement, but called for. Built out of the nessesity
to keep up with demand, the V-tech grenades were new to DVD, and
not as liked by the corporate owners. The Vtechs would still be
produced, but research into further development was halted.
grenades are Virotechnology used in the Nanotech wars. These
are Tag and trace explosives. Small bots designed to follow its
target. The grenades will go until it either looses its target or
hits and destroys it, or is just destroyed itself.
V-tech grenade has a (+7) to strike and will follow until the target
is out of range. At which point the grenade, unless programed otherwise
will drop harmlessly to the ground. )
_ The DVD
Cordat a heavy offensive weapon, also mounted for defense, is
a power to recon with. The Gattling laser technology allows for
a masive barage of laser blasts. This weapon requires strength to
handle or a mounting unit, even with a Recoil Reflex system it is
difficult to man. A mounting can be made with a shoulder support
and waist pivot, or it can be setup on a turret. This is to ensure
proper firing and aim, however a character with a PS of 17 or higher
can easily manuever the gun with out supports.
_ The main power rests in its speed. The system can output a massive
volley of blasts in bursts of 50. Using standard Heavy machine gun
rules this means a short (x10) and long burst (x20) capability,
only on the first attack of a melee round, otherwise only single
_ It can
however be set to fire a single blast from one barrel,
doing (4D6x10 MD), this is a single attack.
_ A short burst (50 rounds and 1/2 attacks) adds up to (4D6x100)
_ A long burst (100 rounds and full melee) does (4D6x200 MD)!!
Why such immense
damage, the primary objective when designing this weapon was to
micronize the masive battery cannons on starships, DVD proved this
was possible with its moblization of the Cordat. Speed and power,
with speed as its objector, was the 2 most important elements of
