Fixed Forward-Facing Weapon: Note that the spacecraft design rules in the Transhuman Space main sourcebook (p.182) define particle accelerators as coming in multiples of 50' long, up to a practical maximum of 400' long. This explains why these are generally installed as "spinal mounts". I don't know where another contributor's claim that they had to be 500 metres long came from.

I misremembered. I just remembered that real life particle accelerators are often miles long and I thought half a kilometer was reasonable for a setting this hard.

You don't need to start a discussion thread over every error.
