      ... aaah, you found out! Same size, weight, hook-ups- just no boom.
      I've always been curious about these modern 'selectable yield' weapons. The pilot can change the devices punch depending on what's needed for the target.
      Is there a select-o-switch in the cockpit that says 'rare, medium, well done'?

      Ah crap- there's those unmarked vans out front again- I withdraw my question!
