Guardians of the Stars
Era: Interstellar Space Era
Type: Artillery Vehicle
Weapons: 1 Massive Railgun
The Dragonfire Artillery Vehicle fills a critical need in the Colonies which was to fight back against ships in orbit. Comparatively it’s easy to shot stuff on the ground from orbit as gravity will help provide the kinetic energy needed to cause destruction, shooting into orbit from the bottom of the gravity well is much harder. With a lack of ships in the early days of the Colony Rebellion the Dragonfire provided the ability on the ground to damage enemy spacecraft.
The Only weapon system of the Dragonfire is a pair of massive railguns that are designed specifically for hitting targets in orbit. These railguns are very similar to the heavy railguns in use by certain spacecraft and can reach tens of thousands of kilometers. They can also be tuned to use as more conventional artillery shooting targets over the horizon by simply putting less energy into them.
