 Encyclopedia Entry
A deadly weapon found on frigates, destroyers and carriers.
Originally the beam weapon used in laser towers, the Plasma Beam Cannon has been strengthened and adapted to be mounted on capital ships. While still not as powerful as the heaviest projectile weapons, it fires at the speed of light and thus provides advantages in accuracy and first-strike capabilities.
A very useful laser, the PBC is most commonly found in lasertowers. Its damage alone is unremarkable, but en masse it can be lethal, many lasertowers being a good tactic to use against difficult foes. They are unavailable in Vanilla excepting their use in lasertowers, however if you use the Script Editor ingame to provide yourself with them, they essentially make any kind of corvette-level or flak weapon obsolete where they can be mounted: High damage output and range makes them unsurpassable as fighter defence. In Albion Prelude, you can get the PBC by destroying lasertowers before their deployment is complete.
