The Izanagi Ion Cannon, or simply the Izanagi, is an Amenrian superweapon in the Politics & War Roleplay Universe.
The Izanagi Ion Cannon is a weapon of unprecedented destructive power and far outclasses foreign nuclear missiles. The first versions were crude and relatively weak, no more than laser scalpels compared to those used in later conflicts. Two dozen exist aboard platforms in medium Earth orbit and are controlled by a sophisticated communication matrix that can fire them in unison at a single location for maximum effect, or target separate locations for tactical strikes.
It fires several beams of concentrated energy that measure only centimeters across but can melt the densest metal and vaporize organic tissue. After that, they spiral in toward the target point and merge into a larger, more powerful beam at the center of the target area before the colliding ions trigger a controlled but extremely violent exothermic reaction fifty times more powerful than the atomic bombs that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
