|Technology Name||MiniBalls II|
|Short Description||A superior form of railgun.|
|Technology Type||Mass Driver|
|Tech Leads to||Mass Drivers|
|Tech Provides||Railgun MK II|
|Long Description|| It was thought that mass-drivers would not be a weapon in interstellar warfare. A bullet, after all, travels at speeds measured by the speed of sound which, in space, is far too slow. What wasn't considered by many planners is that even though our opponents' ships travel fast, so do ours. In battle, our ships can close in enough to make use of their railguns with devastating consequences.|
MiniBalls II, as they are so delicately called, is essentially identical to the first generation railgun except that the electric motor used to accelerate the projectile is significantly smaller, allowing us to fit more onto our ships.
