This was one of the standard issue weapons for clones. While the use of blasters allowed a clone trooper to carry significantly more ammunition than a projectile weapon, the DC-15A was a heavy 9.5 pounds, and despite the weapon’s size it is not a true dedicated repeating blaster rifle; the inherent instability of plasma gas in ion blasters reduced the weapon’s accuracy under sustained fire.1 Even so, the DC-15A was very powerful and deadly in the hands of the skilled clone troopers that received extensive training in its use.
In addition to standard iron sights on the rifle’s upper surface, the DC-15 could interface with the helmets of clones to project a graphical gunsight on the clone trooper’s helmet display. Mounted on a tripod, the maximum effective range of a DC-15A was 10 kilometers. On maximum power, a shot from a DC-15A could leave a 0.5 meter hole in any ferroconcrete wall; however, firing at maximum power demands a higher rate of power consumption; while on the lowest power setting a DC-15A power pack will last for 500 shots, just ten maximum power will deplete the power pack.
