The Heavy Naval Particle Projector Cannon is designed to inflict a massive amount of energy and thermal damage to enemy WarShips. As it is so massive, the system has difficulty targeting enemy craft smaller than 500 tons. Frequently the Heavy NPPC is used to perform orbital fire support missions.

The weapon was created when first Naval PPCs were introduced in Middle of the twenty-fourth century. The Heavy Naval PPC is most powerful of the Naval type PPCs. Like its lesser capital cousins, were first type of PPC to develop prior to smaller ground based models.[2]
