Design Notes - I had an image of this weapon system in my head this morning, with the subconscious note that it should be div20, and I whipped it together. I'm not so happy with the way it's turned out (to save money I didn't make the CA fireproof and I did steel-belted radials instead of solids), but I wanted to see how it would turn out.

I've decided to design the cars with 8 total dischargers: 2 each Right, Left, and Top & Bottom, then 1 front & back. The top & bottom are going to be hot smoke (when I can afford it) or just smoke; this is laser insurance (hot for IRs).

Name is from the hero of the first series of Roger Zelazny's Amber series. And not after this person whose parents had better be in on the joke.
