Description:
As with laser weapons, the improved particle weapons developed by the proto-Clans focused on lighter and more space-efficient manufacturing. But where the improved PPC simply made the standard model smaller without sacrificing power, the enhanced PPC improved on the destructive output of the Star League’s extended-range version.

Game Rules:
The enhanced PPC matches the Inner Sphere ER PPC in all of the same ways except for its increased damage.

Construction Rules:
May be mounted on any available unit type in accordance with the unit’s standard construction rules.
