The A-13 Heavy Repeating Blaster Rifle, often referred to the "Ripper" because of its nasty habit of ripping chunks of flesh off from a being's body with it's high-powered lasers, was one of the most destructive hand-held weapons in Galactic History. It was made by BlasTech Industries. And it used by only the highest in rank ARC Troopers. CT-1312 used this weapon for a short time before it was destroyed by a droid's blaster. It used a large drum for its ammo, and was double-barreled. It could fire 100 lasers per-second. After the Clone Wars, the gun was used by the Stormtroopers.
