Book 12: Force Multiplication — Part III: Fight or Flight


NARRATOR: Kathryn Flinders is firing a Strohl Munitions BH-250 plasgun, or "plasma cannon."

She is holding it at full extension -- no mean feat with a weapon massing 19.5 kilograms.

She is assisted by the fact that the weapon is stabilizing itself by magnetically coupling the plasma beam to the weapon chassis.

NARRATOR: This magnetic coupling also allows the weapon to generate significant thrust.


NARRATOR: Kathryn has discovered "rocket mode."
