A rotatory cannon with generous engineering specifications which provide for great ease of operation and reliability. Weapons officers across the professional navies of the Sector, meanwhile, curse the Thumper for rewarding poor maintenance habits.

Shreds enemy missiles and fighters with an overwhelming hail of small payload, medium velocity fragmentation rounds. Although flux-efficient, this weapon system has little effect against armor and shields.
