Miscellaneous notes


Railgun technology allows bullets to move incredibly fast, imbuing them with tremendous velocities. Though definitely not state-of-the-art, they have recently been upgraded to be more effective for military use. Most antique military warpships still utilize this technology. Generally, railguns may be considered a highly reliable means of attack, useful in attacking virtually everything. However, this does not mean that they are equally useful against all types of warpcraft. Smaller, lighter-armored vessels are more readily destroyed by such attacks, but larger vessels generally have stronger armor and thus aren't significantly harmed. Hence kinetic bullets are used for warpcraft defense.
