Plasma Cannon Mk3
The Plasma Cannon Mk3 replaces the constant pulse of the previous versions with a burst of energy that can be charged by holding the weapon trigger for a number of seconds. This makes it perfect for controlling damage to larger, slower vessels. Be advised not to let the Mk3 overheat as its cooldown time is very slow!
Designed to release its bullet at such high velocity to cause significant and almost immediate damage to its target, this particular implementation of a Railgun (AKA Gauss gun) is also equipped with an auto-zoom that allows it to focus on far-away targets when the trigger is pulled; releasing the trigger will fire the bullet. This makes the Railgun a very effective sniper weapon. NOTE that this replaces your mining weapon (including Heavy Laser), so think carefully before you swap!
The design of this torpedo means the majority of its damage is dealt to shields; together with its increased agility over the Nova Torpedo this makes it a perfect first strike weapon against capital ships. Parts for this weapon are hard to come by and you will have to go to dangerous areas of space to obtain them. No Vendors for this weapon have been discovered as yet.
