The C4-CZN is a tripod-mounted heavy weapon system. It is one of the few such weapons to be ion-based and thus disruptive rather than destructive. This makes it highly attractive to both police forces, needing to capture vehicle occupants alive (and droid targets operational), and
paramilitary and guerilla forces, wishing to recover their
enemies' equipment. It is less often found in the hands of an
actual military, for whom ion weaponry is generally of
A well-designed weapon, the C4-CZN has a high energy
output and a stable mounting. These elements help alleviate
the inherent inaccuracy of ion weapons caused by their
particle make-up, which can actually bounce off of dust
particles in the air, rather than vaporizing them as do typical
energy weapons. Perhaps the only oversight in the weapon's
design is the inadequate cooling system, resulting in a
cyclical rate somewhat lower than comparable armament.
Despite the alarming frequency with which barrels and
particle accelerators need to be replaced, the C4-CZN
remains a favourite because its streamlined construction
means that such replacements are quickly done and parts
are easy to come by. This has resulted in the nickname 'four
seasons,' or a weapon that is ready to operate at all times.
