Developed in 3069 by Clan Jade Falcon, the Anti-Personnel Gauss Rifle is a scaled-down Gauss Rifle meant for work against conventional infantry and battle armor. While functioning similarly to needler weapons, it fires metal flechettes at supersonic speeds, allowing for additional penetration against heavier armor, unlike traditional needler systems. Though the weapon began life as a battle armor weapon, it was soon adopted by heavier units throughout the Clans.[1]
