Introduced in 3059, Clan Star Adder developed the Heavy Lasers as a way of packing more punch into a relatively small package. All Heavy Lasers, however, build up a tremendous amount of heat and potentially interfere with a 'Mech's sensors. The Heavy Large Laser receives a +1 to-hit modifier to reflect that.[4][5]


The Heavy Large Laser is exclusively fielded by the Clans. As such, there are no Inner Sphere models.


The Heavy Large Laser is manufactured on the following planets:
