BEHR M3A Laser Cannon


The M3A is Behring's entry level laser cannon. The cannon configuration offers modest damage per projectile and a fairly low rate of fire. As the most basic offering in Behring's weapons lineup, it features low power consumption, but poor power efficiency. It makes up ground for its shortcomings by being cheap, a feature many pilots are looking for when outfitting their ships on a budget.
