The Heavy Machine Gun was originally created by Clan Smoke Jaguar by improving on the rate of fire of traditional Machine Guns at the expense of range and accuracy. Fielded only by the Clans at first, the Inner Sphere eventually created their own version of Heavy Machine Guns for use by battle armor by deriving the design from semi-portable autocannons used by infantry forces.
