Design Details Edit
The first two versions of Heat Blades are silicon carbide and like all the others', it uses thermal energy to burn the opponent. Mark III and onwards is made of diamond. Mark IV can use electrical and kinetic energy to create small barriers that is large enough to protect the user's head and chest only. Mark V is now being develop and Stahl Arms is trying to make it use fabricate flammable gases and adding a failsafe mechanism to it.
All the heat blades are powered by a compact and small reactor. However Stahl Arms said that the Mark V will use new and powerful fusion energy tech. They however might use Petrusite tech instead.
