In addition to improving on the existing technologies of the Star League, the nascent Clans also began to expand on many weapon systems in the years just prior to Operation KLONDIKE. During their conquest of the war-ravaged Pentagon worlds, several of these prototype weapons (identified by the suffix “-CP”) saw extensive field testing. These items would eventually evolve into their final Clan-spec forms.
Advanced laser technologies were among the first to be mastered by the Clans, but during Operation KLONDIKE testing was still underway on the new systems. Experimental versions of the small- and medium-sized versions of the extended-range laser (ER-SL-CP and ER-ML-CP) were available during the return to the Pentagon.
Both the ER small and ER medium lasers perform in the same fashion as their Inner Sphere versions.
May be mounted on any available unit type in accordance with the unit’s standard construction rules.
