Type DDS "Kingston"

The Type DDS "Kingston" Extended-Range Particle Projection Cannon is one of the more modern and common types of Clan-spec ER PPCs in Clan and the Inner Sphere space.

HistoryEdit

Debuted by Clan Cloud Cobra around 3059 in time for use on their new Four Legged BattleMech the Stalking Spider,[1] Clan Star Adder and Clan Diamond Shark would secure the designs for the weapon for use on updated Phoenix updates of the venerable Glass Spider[2] and Warhammer IIC[3] manufactured in the Clan Homeworlds. The Diamond Sharks' forced evacuation from the Homeworlds would also result in the start of manufacture of the weapon in the Inner Sphere as well, [4] which the mercantile Clan Sea Fox would offer to Clan and Inner Sphere buyers such as the Capellan Confederation[5] and possibly the Federated Suns.[6]
