Blaster Rifle


   The BlasTech E-11 blaster rifle was declared the standard sidearm for Imperial stormtoopers because it offered the great range and heavy damage of a traditional long barreled rifle in a compact, easy-to-wield weapon. The E-11 has a light well-balanced design that permits accurate one-handed fire, allowing soldiers to move unencumbered and use the weapon in close quarters almost as easily as one wields a pistol. This rifle has good long-range targeting because of the extendable sighting stock, the barrel's advanced galven circuitry, and the computer-enhanced scope, which filters out smoke and haze and enhances vision in low-light conditions.
   The E-11 blaster rifle has a maximum range of three hundred meters and an optimum range at one hundred meters, nearly three times the reach of a blaster pistol. This range is achieved because the barrel runs almost the entire length of the weapon, producing a tightly focused and very powerful particle beam,
   To accommodate this barrel design, only the actuating blaster module and the prismatic crystal housing are placed behind the barrel. Other components are mounted to the side or underneath the galven circuitry, while the gas chamber has an unique tubular design that wraps around the back of the barrel. These components are mounted on a single module that slides out of the back at the weapon for repair or replacement.
   To prevent dangerous heat buildup, the E-11's cooling coils force-feed a liquid cooling agent called freelol through an intricate capillary system that carries heat away from vital components and into the forward vent capcitator.
   The side-mounted power pack supplies enough energy for one hundred shots, The E-11 can be set for a variety of power levels, from stun to full blast. Because of its large quarter-centimeter bore, the E-11 is quite lethal at full power. Although both Imperial and New Republic soldiers normally use the semiautomatic setting in order to conserve ammunition and allow adequate cooling, the weapon has full automatic and pulse fire settings. Extended automatic fire may throw the barrel out of alignment.
   While the E-11 was sold exclusively to the Empire during the Galactic Civil War, the Rebel Alliance managed to acquire thousands of these weapons through black market purchases and outright theft. The E-11 and its technological "clone" a Sarosuub-manufactured blaster rifle called the Stormtrooper One (later renamed the Freedom One), remained favorites of both Imperial and New Republic forces.
