================================================================================================
Overview:
    A notable sidegrade to the existing 8S design, the 8G loses some of its close range damage
    but has greater ranged potential and eliminates the possibility of a jam. It also makes
    better use of existing equipment.

Capabilities:
    The starting upgrade of the 8G is the implementation of a light engine and endo-composite
    chassis. The ultra autocannon is then removed. This provides sufficient free weight to mount
    a Gauss rifle and three tons of ammo, as well as 2 more heat sinks and a trio of ER small
    lasers for defense against infantry.
