Research Category: Energy Weapons
Research Cost: 165,000 Research Points
Required Technology: Meson Beam
Races Allowed: Hiver, Human, Liir, Morrigi, Tarka, Zuul
Effect: Allows graviton beam weapons to be mounted on large turrets. It splits its damage between each ship section, with any damage done to a destroyed section split between the remaining two. Ships with only one section or hit point value (instead of three), like Dreadnoughts, Asteroid Monitors, Swarm Hives, Puppet Masters, System Killers and Platforms receive full damage.
Notes: Try using a bank of Graviton Beams on one ship in combination with a Siege Driver on another.
