Nano Infuser

The Cybrids have been keenly interested in nanotechnology for decades, and until recently their research has far outpaced human efforts in the field. The Cybrid Nano-Infuser was the first operational nano-weapon fielded by either side. The Nano-Infuser fires a small, very low energy plasma burst, which encapsulates a cloud of nanite "eaters". These nanites penetrate the armor of the target vehicle and attack the internal structural components directly. Nanites have a very short life span, but during this time they can inflict considerable damage to the most vulnerable portions of an enemy vehicle. The major limitations ofthe nano-infuser are its short range and limited ammo supply. Nearly 50% of all damage inflicted is allocated directly to the target's internal structure.
