Cheap utility laser that is hardwired for missile and fighter defense. This configuration gives it longer range than most point defense weapons.
A Mk I mining laser features a fluoride gas gain medium refitted for combat. The micro-asteroid targeting package has been repurposed to track and target incoming missiles. Mostly useless for anything larger or armored targets. Has a built-in 670nm tracker beam.
The Mining Laser is a light energy point defense weapon. While cheap and long-ranged, its low DPS limits its usefulness.
