Finally, someone figured that electrothermal propellant tech could be reversed to make lighter guns. I look forward to the 10kilo .50 caliber sniper rifle.

— Dexter Dobbs, Firestorm Shockwave

Advances in electrothermal propellant technology have made a great many guns shoot harder and faster. Militech figured, why not use it to make a big gun shoot just same, but make the gun lighter? The answer is the BMFG, a truly man-portable 30mm cannon. Of course, ifs portable as long as the carrier doesn't mind the 25 kilos of mass for the weapon, an additional 5 kilos for the battery pack, and 5 kilos per clip of extra rounds. But it can be fired by an unassisted man (recoil factor 9). The cannon is, of course, smoothbore. Since the weapon can't be fired from the shoulder, some sort of smartchipping (if nothing else, to a monocle) is highly recommended. Standard rounds cost 90eb apiece; a power pack recharge costs 25eb.[1]
