Miscellaneous notes

With advancements in the field of hyperkinetics - how matter behaves at incredibly high velocities - scientists have been able to create shaped penetrators with the ability to go through incredibly resilient armor at the high speeds required. They can go through a variety of armor types with ease, but rather do not handle light armor defenses as well. In fact, against light armor they would go through, come out the other end and continue for a long while before they exploded out of distance of the target.
