A big freakin' particle cannon.

Named after a giant sphinx-like monster from Mesopotamian mythology. (Inspired by real-world parts at pimpmygun. [link])

A magnetic containment field is projected from a nuclear core, which directs a jet of superheated plasma. The plasma follows the field and burns off the air in it's path. This creates an instant vacuum which is then filled by irradiated ions moving at high speeds.

It works if you don't think about it too hard...
