The Type 8 disruptor was originally designed to be mounted on the B’rel Class Bird of Prey variant and since then has proven itself an invaluable weapon. Arguably, the provision of the cannon to that vessel has caused its success, primarily because of the high rate of fire and the comparatively high firepower of the disruptor. The disruptor’s rate of fire is similar to that of the Type U pulse phaser and has a power level comparable to that of the Type IX phaser array.
