A powerful energy weapon found only on the GCN SF2 EagleRay. It uses lasers and crystals to generate a continuous beam of infrared and red light, which superheats the air in its wake, as well as its intended target. Even if an enemy escapes a direct hit, the instability and heat generated in the area is usually enough to cause significant damage.
Though the Eagle Ray has inspired other weapons, the risks involved with using this weapon have led to it not being used on any other aircraft or vehicle. It is also largely useless in space without a direct hit, as there is no air to heat. The Eagle Ray also requires way more energy than a conventional laser, so it was deemed too costly to use on other fighters.
