A Graviton Cannon is the smallest gravity-based starship weapon.  This device is basically a souped-up tractor beam emitter.  It fires a pulsed series of gravitons to produce a rapidly oscillating gravitic field.  As the beam passes through an enemy starship, parts of the target simultaneously feel powerful gravity fields in opposite directions only a few meters apart, and the ship is literally torn apart by its own weight.

This system was only ever installed on the [[EFS Stornoway]], an experimental modification to a [[Rota-class|Rota-Class]] [[destroyer]] design.  Although initial tests carried out by [[Erich Von Shrakenberg]] were quite promising, the greater cost in terms of money and maintenance compared to quite-adequate weapons such as [[Lance Torpedo]]es led to the termination of the project.

The ''Stornoway'' continued in commision throughout the [http://techinfantry.wikia.com/wiki/3rd_Civil_War Third Civil War], but was sent to the scrapyard in 2250.  The Graviton Cannon was apparenty salvaged at some point and attached to a [http://techinfantry.wikia.com/wiki/Corvette corvette], but when it was used in an [http://techinfantry.wikia.com/wiki/Imperial_Fleet Imperial Fleet] raid on the [http://techinfantry.wikia.com/wiki/Elysia?action=edit&redlink=1 Elysia] system during the [http://techinfantry.wikia.com/wiki/Ascension_War Ascension War] in 2265, the second time the Graviton Cannon was fired it malfunctioned and blew out the [http://techinfantry.wikia.com/wiki/Antigrav artificial gravity] system on the ship, killing the entire crew.
