This is the old Tigershark here and you can see the old railguns up front. I can't believe I didn't notice it until now. Or has it always had options for those?
They're ion cannons unless I'm mistaken, and they've always been on the Tigershark. The standard Tigershark has always had two ion cannons as well as missile pods and burst cannons (basically a double-up of the Barracuda's armament), along with an internal bay that could be loaded with lots of gun drones or a bunch of seeker missiles. The Tigershark AX-1-0 was a later variant that featured the two heavy railguns (plus some seeker missiles and a networked markerlight.
What's more noteworthy is that it seems the new model has options for turret-mounted ion guns if the second picture is anything to go by.
