Name: Light PPC
Type (Category): Weapon (Energy)
Technology: Inner Sphere
Available To: BattleMechs (BM), IndustrialMechs (IM)
Reference: TechManual (p. 234)
The light PPC, an effort to produce a more compact versions of the same weapon, also proved a limited success. Once more achieving the same range profile as the standard Inner Sphere PPC, this model has half the heat and damage potential as well—with a weight and size profile roughly half that of the standard PPC. Only the fact that its reach is still half again better than the Spheroid ER medium laser has kept this weapon viable.
PPCs may not be fired if the unit is shut down or if its pilot/crew is otherwise prevented from acting.
May be mounted on any available unit type in accordance with the unit’s standard construction rules.
