–In-Game Description

The Tactical Laser is a small beam weapon.


The Tactical Laser is a typical beam weapon: accurate, low damage, low flux, with significantly better range than equivalent pulse weapons. It works very well against fighters and unshielded frigates, and can force ships to keep their shields up.

The Tactical Laser makes a good PD weapon with the Integrated Point Defense AI hullmod, and the beam goes through missiles while still damaging them.
