Railgun
A ship or vehicular mounted kinetic weapon that uses magnetic fields to accelerate a shell at very high velocity (in some cases relativistic). Often employed in batteries in capital ships and starfortresses, which have sufficiently power reactors to provide a power source. Small ship, fighter, vehicular, mecha, and handheld versions have less velocity and may also require an additional power source.
