The Saron Heavy Rail Beam replaces the gunner weapon with a very accurate armor piercing laser. The Saron HRB fires fast and accurate armor damaging beams. Accuracy of the HRB decreases significantly for half a second after each shot. This makes it more effective at closer ranges than at longer ranges.


[edit] Field usage

Belonging to the Vanu Sovereignty High End Arsenal, the Saron Heavy Rail Beam can make the difference on the battlefield. However, for greatest efficiency, the Magrider driver must be skilled and the turret operator must have some practice first. Being a secondary weapon, the unsteadiness and current incline of the battle tank limits the maneuverability of the turret.

[edit] Assault

The Saron HRB's damage potential drops off rapidly at range, where the gunner must wait for the weapon's cone of fire to reset after each shot. If used within 200 meters or less, the Saron is capable of close to its full rate of fire.

The Saron's burst damage abilities make it ideal for flanking and ambush attacks. For close range use, Thermal Optics (Certification) are helpful.

[edit] Support

While not particularly powerful, the Saron can be deadly accurate at long range, making it useful for chasing away and hitting enemy weak spots from a distance. For this usage scenario, upgrading Zoom Optics to the highest rank should be considered.

Anti aircraft efficiency : low.
