Description[edit]

Mounted on the Quickscell Hetzer Combat Vehicle, this weapon fires shells in the 150 mm range in ten shot bursts.[citation needed]

Canon vs Non[edit]

The Fluff is rephrased Canon, but the RPG Stats are derivative using the IPCR for the Damage Stats, and doing a formulaic extrapolation from 180 meters at Short Range to the MechWarrior, Third Edition ranges incorporating the +1 modifier that a "Regular" MechWarrior Starts at in the RPG. When using in the RPG, use the gunnery skill bonus in addition to the +2 bonus that Combat Vehicles and BattleMechs get because they automaticly carry the equivelent of an Advanced Fire Control system.
