The Light Machine Gun was originally created by Clan Smoke Jaguar for use by their ProtoMechs, trading firepower for superior range and accuracy over traditional Machine Guns.[1] Originally fielded only by the Clans, the Inner Sphere eventually created their own version of Light Machine Guns for use by battle armor by deriving the design from semi-portable machine guns normally used by infantry forces.[3]
