Type-58 Directed Energy Support Weapon
- Achoem Weapons
- Firing Mode:
- Superheated Plasma
Superficially similar to other Class-1 plasma weapons used by the Covenant and its successor factions, the Plasma Cannon is a rapid fire support weapon that is easy to transport, self-sufficient if paired with a generator
Plasma Cannons are often, though not always, manned by Unggoy, due to their ease of control and protective shielding, which appealed to the diminutive aliens' sense of mortality and love of plasma pyrotechnics. Most Unggoy of higher rank are also trained in the basics of Plasma Cannon maintenance, with their occasional explosive mistakes lamented due to the loss of a valuable weapon and nauseating smell of charred Grunt.
The appearance of various Plasma Cannon differs markedly from manufacturer to manufacturer, but their usage and core technologies
T-58: Sold to both sides of the Sangheili civil war,
T-52: As with most Covenant weapons it is difficult to determine the exact period in which the T-52 entered service; regardless of when the first examples emerged from the Assembly Forges of High Charity this configuration was not widely encountered by human forces until the closing months of the war.
T-42: Far more advanced than initially assumed by ONI, the Type-42 Plasma Cannon used San’Shyuum plasma generators so sublime in their efficiency they were deemed borderline heretical centuries before the Covenant War, for they encroached too closely on the divine perfection of Forerunner artifice.
