It's not meant to fire at ground targets, it's meant to fire into space.

Given the thing makes it clear, in no uncertain terms, that a direct hit can cripple / destroy an unshielded Cruiser, maybe now people will get off my back about how one couldn't kill a Manta in one shot. :

Assuming this is what is usually called a Defence Laser, and in this case said laser is typical of gothic Lance weapons, its less likely a 10" blast, and more likely a 10" wide laser beam....

Me too! I think the rules are awesome! With that it could stop an Orbital Bombardment!

All this for the points cost? wow... it's a Deal!

To me it doesn't matter if it's an actual blast or a wider beam. Neither isn't even remotely plausible from a physical point of view.

Aaaand:
Void Shields
Power fields
Plasma with a real world range >3'
Warp Travel
Psychic Powers

I want of these.
Actually, no, I want a Tau one of these. You know the one, with heavy railcannons that make starship grade railcannons seem tiny by comparison…
