A turret with multiple barrels pirouetted on the roof. “This is the heavy version of our next generation weapon system. It has two guns types. The primary system fires 15mm rockets through three barrels.” He pointed to a set of smaller barrels intermixed with the larger ones. “These are auxiliary weapons and they shoot darts up to 50 meters. Here’s a sample dart.” Mack fished out an inch long cylinder with a needle tip and fluffy tail.“What do they do?” asked Elizabeth Ann.“They contain succinylcholine derivative and are meant to incapacitate the target by inducing flaccid paralysis of the muscles.”“How does that work?” she asked.“I’m not a doctor but my understanding is the neuromuscular blockers act by blocking NicotinicM receptors at the neuromuscular junction. Are you interested in medicine?”She smiled, “I wanted to become a veterinarian before I got distracted by this rock and roll thing.”Mack returned her smile. “It’s not too late, you’re still young.”
