The Volkite Culverin is a heavy Volkite Weapon. The most potent man-portable Volkite weapon in the Imperium's arsenal, its beam has a devastating effect on organic matter, explosively burning flesh into ash and jetting fire. 
Telerac Pattern weapons are far more ancient and ill-omened even those designated 'Proteus', the name implying dark associations with the technological horrors of the deep reaches of the Age of Strife. The shortage of reliable supplies of Volkite weaponry saw many Telerac pattern weapons restored to service in the name of the Emperor, and carefully maintained in Adeptus Astartes armouries.
The Proteus Pattern variant of the Volkite Culverin pre-dates the Telerac Pattern.
