General Details
Name:  Improved Large Pulse Laser
Type (Category):  Weapon (Energy)
Reference:  Interstellar Operations (p. 95)

Description:
The improved lasers used by the early Clans included the standard large laser and the large pulse laser. In both cases, engineering and machining refinements rendered these weapons smaller and more compact than their forebears, without sacrificing performance.

Game Rules:
Both the improved large laser and the improved large pulse laser perform in the same fashion, and with the same heat, damage, range, and to-hit modifiers as those made using the Inner Sphere technology base.
