Still in testing and prototype stage. A recent development that is the result of D.H.R.'s constant off to the side meddling. the sturmgewehr Lightning, capable of shooting bolts of lightning at targets in room to room clearing operations. Unknown where this product will lead to down the road, but with the D.H.R., nothing is not worth trying out.
The weapon is a blend of sources really. While developed by sturmgewehr, the source inspirational tech came from several sources, one of which was from the book: Electromagnetic Field Variances &amd; Effect on Weather Patterns. An unfinished book by an accomplished Jakeili Scientist in modifying Electromagnetic fields on planets and inside of Nebulae which is now locked up in a top secret D.H.R. Military Library until it is finished being screened and studied. Only Deneb Alucard, the top generals, and the top scientists from the CHani Star system are allowed to access it for the time being.
The other source is from*pending*
Baiscally it is a laser induced plasma channel. IN effect, shooting lightning down laser beams.
Heres the Battlegrounds battle droid testing clip from the droids onboard cameras.
(1)Available in the D.H.R. Civilian market, although VERY expensive. Deals powerful laser AND lightning damage. Though do note the lightning is technologically created, so magical defense buffs against lightning do not apply and are ignored.
