Bio:

These recoiless guns were largely phased out after the widespread adoption of energy weapons by major industrial powers in the last half of the 25th century, but many can still be found in abandoned military spaceports, spacecraft and orbital stations. Gyrojet guns were copied and mass-produced during the Shadow Years by the New York Protectorate, New Canada Combine, New Pan-Asia Combine, and a few other earth enclaves still capable of space travel.
