The Rail Cannon System utilizes technology similar to that of a Wookiee Bowcaster. The weapon fires magnetically accelerated rounds that have been energized in plasmoid using immense power generators and strategically-placed polarizers. The result is a devastating shot that detonates on impact, dealing damage over a 2-Square Burst radius. However, the weapon is not without its drawbacks, as the power requirements to launch a single round are staggering. The rapid-discharge capacitors used in the weapon require time to build up their charge, as such the Rail Cannon can only be fired once every three rounds.

Due to the size and instability of the type of fusion generator used to accommodate the smaller scale, when installed in a Colossal Vehicle the Rail Cannon imposes a permanent -10% penalty to atmospheric speed, maximum velocity and Starship Scale speed (Rounded down to the nearest square of speed and 10 km/h, minimum 1 square and 10 km/h). Additionally, the Vehicle with this weapon installed is considered to have the Unstable Reactor Vulnerability.

Colossal (Frigate) and larger craft with this Weapon System installed do not suffer the speed or vulnerability penalties mentioned above.

The capacity of a Rail Cannon System is determined by its size: Light, 10 plasmoid rounds; Medium, 20 plasmoid rounds; Heavy, 30 plasmoid rounds. Additional capacity can be added, increasing the cost by 5% for each additional 10 plasmoid rounds (Up to a maximum of 100 plasmoid rounds).
