Energy Output

I. Inferno Pistol
--------------------------------------------------------

II. Meltagun
--------------------------------------------------------
- Outputs nearly 30 gigajoules of energy:
    “His voice was drowned out by the abrupt hiss of the melta as Jurgen fired into the wall, instantly flashing a dozen cubic meters of ice into steam…”Caves of Ice, Page 81

III. Multi-melta
--------------------------------------------------------
- Output pointing to tripple digit gigajoules of energy melted an Armaplas/Rockcrete bunker and vaporized the men inside:
    "Before the echoes had died, the Iron Warrior with the multi-melta rose from his concealment and charged forwards to fire. The gun’s discharge built to a deafening screech before erupting from the barrels in a searing hiss. The warrior’s aim was true and the air within the bunker ignited with atomic fury, spurts of vaporized flesh and super-heated oxygen blasting from the weapon slits.

    He leapt over the Marauder’s fuselage and sprinted towards the molten hell of the wrecked bunker, its walls now flowing like wax across the ground.

    Honsou leapt onto the remains of the bunker, his iron-shod boots sinking into the molten rock. The heat scorched his leg armour, but it held firm as he pushed off and dropped into the heart of the defense.

    Scorched and blackened limbs lay strewn about, all that remained of those stationed too close to the bunker, the backwash of the melta had burned flesh and bone to cinders in an instant."
    - Storm of Iron, Page 31

    - These bunkers were capable of tanking lots of firepower. Even types of the Lascannon had a tough time penetrating them:
    "Bolt after bolt of powerful las-blasts slammed into the protruding salient angle of the bunker, blasting away huge chunks of armaplas and rockcrete. The two Iron Warriors paid no attention to the incoming fire, sending shot after shot of unimaginably powerful energy into their target." - Page 31

IV. Meltacannon

Spoiler
"Sweat beaded Korm's brow as he watched Chaplain Valac throw the relic onto the ground and aim the heavy multi-melta at it. At such range, the bolt pistol would be reduced to vapour, annihilated more completely than if it had been cast into the center of the sun" - Victories of the space marines pg. 126
