|“||Our early experiments with oversized coolant coils and doubles lensing have shown the potential to greatly increase the firing of our laser weaponry. We may be able to use these advances in the development of ship based cannons for our interceptors as well.||”|

We've finally found a workable solution to the heat dissipation issues we've struggled with when attempting to create a more powerful laser weapon for our troops. Although this variant still operates near the limit of what would ordinarily be considered "safe" operating temperatures, we believe it is stable enough at this point to begin fabrication in engineering.
While developing this laser for our troops, we also blueprinted a variation suitable for mounting to our Interceptors. Attaching this weapon to one of our ship's hardpoints should provide a significant boost in firepower to our pilots when engaging the alien craft.
- This research is required for the EXALT Heavy Laser to be usable.
