The Heavy Railgun is one of the largest and most deadly weapons on the battlefield, using magnetic acceleration to propel a projectile to hypersonic velocities. One shot is often enough to penetrate an armored target and kill it. A Heavy Railgun can quickly drain its capacitor energy banks though, limiting its ammunition capacity and rate of fire.[1]

Notable Examples
  • 10mm Westfellow Technologies LOKI -  The primary weapon of the Aller main battle tank, which mounts a separate engine just to recharge its capacitors.[2]
