Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Rebellion Era Campaign Guide
Designed for use with Zero-Gravity Stormtrooper Armor, Miniature Proton Torpedoes can rip through Starship hulls. The launcher mounts into the Zero-Gravity Stormtrooper Armor's left gauntlet, but enterprising Rebel engineers have adapted the Weapon as a shoulder-mounted launcher. After launching a Miniature Proton Torpedo, the wielder must spend a Standard Action to reset the launcher, which holds 4 torpedoes.
When you make an Area Attack with a Miniature Proton Torpedo Launcher, you make a single attack roll and compare the result to the Reflex Defense of every target in the Weapon's Burst radius. Creatures you hit take full damage, and creatures you miss take half damage. A target with the Evasion talent takes half damage from a successful attack, and no damage if the attack misses.
Alternatively, the Weapon can be fired at a single target, acting as a focused weapon designed to take out Starfighters and heavy Vehicles. As a Swift Action, you can set the Miniature Proton Torpedo Launcher to single-target mode. In this mode, the weapon no longer functions as an Area Attack Weapon, deals 6d10x2 damage, and applies a -10 penalty on attack rolls against targets smaller than Huge size.
Replacement Miniature Proton Torpedoes weigh 5 kg and cost 200 credits each.
