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?

To be fair, I'm not sure it's going to be a blast weapon, but visual cues like this are, usually, chosen for a specific reason. In this case, I think it's an informed guess that this might be the 139's heavy rail cannon instead of Tigershark's existing heavy railgun based not only on the visuals, but also because the blast templates would better fit the theme of a "bomber".R.D. wrote:Eh, I'm not keen on it being blast, I always liked blowing flyers out with a heavy railgun shot up the hiney.
