Default The Lowly Sandcaster- Unleashed!

If there is any iconic bit of hardware that says Traveller, a prime argument can be made that it is the sandcaster.

Rather then SHATTERING BEAMS smashing into ENERGY SCREENS OF UNIMAGINABLE POWER, our lasers get diffracted and ablated by a pack of specialized sand. I'd say that sets the tone for a lot of workaday military and civilian hardware.

One might even say our Sand makes for......... gritty science fiction.

Joking aside, it's on the low end of the totem pole for most ships- important to have to deal with surviving more powerful opponents, but dreams of highly advanced missiles and PA barbettes dance in our captain's skulls.
