Like Sci-Fi? Read My New Online Fiction Series.

Do you like Sci-Fi? While I finish up my next novel, I have started an online fiction series called Forbearance. Picking up from the canteen scene in Bellicose, we meet Keius Minjen, a postal marine, as he tries to survive the battle planet Guna to exact revenge and one day liberate his homeland.


Sign-up if you want me to send you news about upcoming installments of Forbearance or my other writings.

Overview

“Shaking his Rainbow maker” became a catchphrase of the late Imperium. The rainbow maker class of personal weapons was a late development in the use of x-ray based laser technology. The nomenclature “rainbow maker” refers to how the weapon’s beam reacts with Anotek Isotope Filtration equipped combatants. This seems implausible except that the Filtration was originally meant to protect against radiation. While nicknamed the “Rainbow Maker,” these weapons are commonly called personal-class x-ray lasers.

Development

The use of laser technology has been around for about as long as superluminal travel. However, the visible light nature of lasers make them easy to spot and easy to deflect. Even the most basic Kehn Munh Light Battle Suit carrys some reflective ability, though the armor itself does not reflect nor is it intended to deflect laser-based weapons. X-ray lasers lack the disadvantage of visible light, but have a significantly shorter range in atmospheric combat.

Use

To have any practical combat capacity (that is, number of shots per battery), the x-ray lasers are commonly used as rifles. However, single-shot holdouts have been manufactured in the fringe colonies. Additionally, vehicle mounted high-rate of fire weapons (measured in hundreds of shots per minute) are fairly common, and are used primarily in an antipersonnel capacity.

These weapons cause severe skin burns and can irradiate internal organs of unarmored targets.
