The Steal Beam Rifle is a ion-driven high velocity projectile rifle, made for use against heavily armored vehicles and troops, and as a hand held anti-aircraft gun. The name is used because it leaves a nearly visible ion-path of superheated air, but hits the target with a titanium slug. The path can be seen in ultraviolet light. This weapon combines the best from the ion-cannon, the slug-thrower and the rail-gun. Sudden (violent) inspiration forced me to create this.
