PHI Lei-Gong Railgun

The Praxis Heavy Industries Lei-Gong is a a recoilless weapon that uses electromagnetic force to launch high velocity projectiles. The projectile normally does not contain explosives, instead relying on the projectile's high speed and kinetic energy to inflict damage. The railgun uses a pair of parallel helical conductors (rails), along which a sliding armature is accelerated by the electromagnetic effects of a current that flows down one rail, into the armature and then back along the other rail. It is based on principles similar to those of the homopolar motor. The Lei-Gong is capable of being fired from a bipod or from the shoulder provided the wielder is capable of lifting the rifle's considerable weight. The tungsten projectile fired by the Lei-Gong is capable of penetrating up to 1 foot of solid steel at a maximum effective range of 1,500 feet.


Adam Monroe stole these weapons from Praxis Heavy Industries in spite of his own measure of control over the company as a means to obfuscate where they were being delivered, keeping knowledge of the weapons being in the hands of his operatives a relative secret.
