Fusion Weapons are a type of High-Energy Weapon that fires a stream of hydrogen plasma at fusion temperatures.

Description / Specifications[edit]

Fusion weapons channel out heated plasma at higher temperatures than plasma weaponry, heating the energy projectile to fusion temperatures.

FGMP (Fusion Gun-Man Portable)[edit]

The FGMP-14 is similar in design and function to the PGMP-13. The FGMP-14 differs only in that it contains the plasma slightly longer until a fusion reaction begins to take place The weapon is somewhat more powerful than a plasma gun, and it may only be used by individuals wearing Battle Dress.

  • The FGMP-15 incorporates a gravity field generator similar to that used on the PGMP-14 and a weapon system similar to that of the FGMP-14.
  • The FGMP-16 is an advanced, lighter-weight version of the FGMP-15 with all of its features.

Fusion Rifle[edit]

The Fusion Rifle is a highly advanced, very portable version of the earlier FGMP weapons. Fusion rifles are projected to become available somewhere at or beyond TL-17. Such technological guesswork is all conjecture.
