When fired, it emits a beam of Warp energy that emerges with a cascade of scintillating colours that explode into a blossom of oblivion as a small rift into the Immaterium is opened at the beam's point of contact.
The scintillating beam of the Rift Cannon cracks a hole in reality itself, creating a deadly implosion.
Those who survive the blast suffer the stunning effect of even so brief an exposure to such an unusual phenomenon.
This weapon is utilised as a part of the formidable arsenal of the deadly and much feared aircraft known as the Ravenwing Dark Talon.
