Drone gives it a heroic effort, but finds the clasps on the container to be too much trouble and simply devours them instead, processing the packing material into neatly ordered atoms of necrodermis base for your foundry.

The sight is a strange one, as you're able to recognize at once how advanced and primitive the weapon is. Somehow, tau scientists have succeeded in replicating necron gauss technology in a man-portable weapon system.

You know with utmost certainty that you are more than capable of elevating the device to its proper specifications, making whole an otherwise incomplete copy.
