A Plasma Caliver is an Imperial Plasma Weapon utilized by the Adeptus Mechanicus' Skitarii troops. As volatile as it is deadly, the Plasma Caliver exchanges range for a truly terrifying rate of fire. A squad of Skitarii armed with several Plasma Calivers can light up the night with each volley.
To say they risk life and limb in the process because of the instability of Imperial Plasma Weapons is a grave understatement, yet to their Tech-priest masters, such collateral damage matters not at all.
