Seismic Escalation Detonator
The Seismic Escalation Detonators are a tool for use in mining and exploration, that were weaponised by the Deathwatch Techmarines of Watch Station Erioch. Favoured by those Deathwatch Space Marines hailing from the Imperial Fists, the unit consists of a powerful sound emitter roughly the size of a man that is planted in solid ground or the walls of a fortification by way of a large spike. Once in place, it broadcasts ultra-low frequency sounds that set up sympathetic vibrations in ground and structures. These units are powered by rechargeable power packs that are good for about one hour of constant operation. The longer the unit operates, the more powerful its tremors grow and it causes more and more damage to surrounding terrain and structures. Used en masse, these tools can crumble the mightiest fortifications and the tallest buildings in a matter of minutes.
