Dragon's Breath refers to a zirconium-based pyrotechnic shotgun
round. When the round is fired, sparks and occasionally flames shoot out
to about 15 m (48 feet), beyond 15 meters, the round's already limited
effectiveness is drastically reduced.
While its tactical uses are very limited, the visual effect it
produces is impressive, similar to that of a short-ranged flamethrower.
The rounds are often used as a distress signal, similar to an emergency
flare gun. They can also be used as means of intimidation to the
opposing forces. The pyrotechnic shell is expensive compared to other
shells, costing around $5 per shell. Although there is little to no
record of its use in actual combat, Dragon's Breath can be considered an
anti-personnel round. However, the potential damage it can cause on an
enemy combatant can be considered inhumane.
Because it is a very low-power round, it cannot be used in an
automatic shotgun; it does not produce enough recoil energy to cycle the
next shot, causing the mechanism to jam. An additional reason for use
only in a manually-operated firearm is the fact that the round shoots at
least a little flame for 3–5 seconds. This would cause a hazard if a
shell still emitting flame were to be ejected from an automatic shotgun.
