The EchoDefense series weapons were created by the Feydrakin alliance
in the deep core. The alliance is a coalition of systems with all
variety of alien races living on them. They banded together against
the onsalught of the anti-alien prejudice of the empire. Even human
worlds in the area joined the alliance and through their combined
efforts they repelled the empire. One of the reasons for this was
the EchoDefense series weapons.
They use highly concentrated and very powerful sonic waves. They
overlap aproximately 200 harmonics over each other in a single wave
and send them out in bursts where the waves are packed icnredibly
close together. With a powerful energy source and transmision system
it can release this energy in a cone of sonic energy capoable of large
destruction. Things caught within the blast of an EchoDefense weapon
literaly shake themselves apart.
The ED-28 was the original EchoDefense Weapon based off a legendary
dark side weapon. It is on a traversing and swiveling mount on the
top of a small obelisk. The transmitter itself is a fairly large bell
shaped chamber plated with acoustic tyle like material. The hollow of
the 'bell' is aimed in the direction the blast is to be fired.
The two crewers stand 2 meters below at the base of the obelisk, on
whatever side is opposite from the direction the weapon is being aimed.
The controls are set into a remote which can be stored in a small
compartment in the obelisk itself. The crewers just pull the remote out,
stand back in safety and direct it with the remote. The weapon's power
source is built into the obelisk, which can be move onto a specilized
flatbed speeder, but because of its small size it takes a while for
it to cool and build up enough of a charge to fire the weapon again so
it has a very slow fire rotation.
All and all this is a very devastating weapon out on the field, still
powerful enough to tear apart a speeder coming in, it utterly destroys
any infantry soldiers within its firearc.
