The C-244 Pistol is the standard shipboard sidearm for Terran Confederation forces during the Terran-Kilrathi War. During boarding operations it is carred by all medics and optionally by officers in lieu of the C-47 Assault Rifle.
It fires explosive 2.3mm caseless projectiles along a tight-beam magnetic field. It can be set to fire single or 3-round burst shots.
The grip receives the clips. The magnetic accelerator is powered with a sealed rechargeable power cell which is mounted above the ammo bay.
The clips have 100 rounds. The power cell is rated for 25000 shots.
