VG-9 VRF Gauss GUn

by Scott Quigg

The VG-9 is part of Kyris' Industies Battlefield 1200 family of weapons. It is representative of typical medium gauss VRFs and is intended to be mounted on vehicles capable of providing a substantial power supply (approximately 1.51MW). In return this gauss weapon provides a sustainable rate of fire of 3,000rpm with a short range of 300m.

"When the call comes in for the VG-9, we call it bringing the "heavy heat". This weapon lays down such heavy suppressing fire that troops can enter the arena of conflict unscathed. As a tank commander, I'm faced with many situations where my 100Mj plasma cannon is "overkill" having a secondary weapon, capable of penetrating body armor and delivering a hell of a kick afterwards, is certainly a benefit!! This bushwacker is far superior to the old Imperial 4mm models that had no real firepower." First Sergeant Alex Branagan, 3rd Gravitic Armor Regiment "Divine Thunder"
