The Heavy Assault Weapon is, in the simplest way of describing it, a box packed with small rockets that can be launched either individually or in groups. Each of the Rockets is seven centimeters long & two & one-half centimeters in diameter, with enough fuel to propel themselves roughly sixty meters. The rockets can follow targets to a limited degree, being dirrected by a laser targeting module that can be either aimed by hand or connected to an automated tracking system. The front of the HAW is a double row of fifteen pop-away covers that protect the rockets until they fire. A failsafe built into the HAW prevents a rocket from firing if the cover fails to retract for any reason. The rockets themselves can carry a wide range of payloads, Including: anti-personnel; anti-vehicle; adhesive; stun; flash; smoke; chemical; biological; ion; hollow tip (for personalized loads); CryoBan; & Flame. The HAW can be mounted on the upper arm of a suit of armour or a wide range of other places (such as on the side of a speeder). However, it is not recommended to be mounted near exposed flesh due to the backwash produced when the rockets launch. The design is based on the wrist launcher, fixing several of the issues involved with the original design such as low ammo count & requiring rockets to be fired in a specific order.
