Laser pistols are high-tech sidearms that emit a concentrated beam of coherent light, with sufficient wattage to do considerable damage. They can be powered by various power sources, but most models use a internal capacitor, charged by a small energy cell. Apart from pistols, other, more powerful laser weapons exist, like laser rifles and Gatling lasers.
Several different variants of laser pistols exist, from low power civilian models to extremely powerful military sidearms. Typically, the main difference are the focusing optics. While civilian models utilise a laser diode, military models employ a photonic focusing chamber and crystal array, which creates a tighter, more destructive beam, although certain modifications (e.g. a magneting field focusing system) can improve the performance of a civilian model, bringing it on par with military models. Certain models can also be locked down for transport, requiring an arming sequence to make them operable again.
Wattz 1000 laser pistol编辑
<section begin="Wattz 1000 laser pistol" /> A Wattz 1000 laser pistol. Civilian model, so the wattage is lower than military or police versions. The reason for this is that it uses a laser focusing diode instead of a crystal array. For security, it can be locked down for transport, with a proper arming sequence needed to render it operable again. <section end="Wattz 1000 laser pistol" />
Wattz 1000 magneto-laser pistol编辑
<section begin="Wattz 1000 Magneto-laser pistol" /> This Wattz 1000 laser pistol has been upgraded with a magnetic field targeting system that tightens the laser emission, giving this pistol extra penetrating power. <section end="Wattz 1000 Magneto-laser pistol" />
<section begin="Solar Scorcher" /> The Solar Scorcher is a special laser pistol that uses sunlight as its energy source. In full daylight, the experimental photo-electric cells absorb light and allow the weapon to fire up to six shots, after which it must be reloaded.
AEP7 laser pistol编辑
<section begin="AEP7 laser pistol" /> The AEP7 laser pistol was put into service to replace the AEP5 model. With a generous battery size, tight shot grouping at range, resilience to extended use, and fairly decent damage output, it is a very good choice for a sidearm and is used extensively in this role by the Brotherhood of Steel and the Enclave in the Capital Wasteland.
As the successor to the AEP5, it boasted a redesigned focusing crystal pattern, an improved photonic focusing chamber, and selectable laser focus, wave length, pulse energy and repetition rate. In addition, it was lighter and less bulky than its predecessor and was perceived as a step toward replacing the N99 10mm pistol with a laser weapon as the standard issue sidearm for military forces.
The AEP7 was produced in large numbers, thanks to newly developed manufacturing technologies in the USA, although logistics and supply issues in pre-War USA, caused by its prolonged war with China, prevented its wide-scale deployment. <section end="AEP7 laser pistol" />
