Semi-Portable Machine Gun
Semi-Portable Machine Guns are close-range assault weapons used to support infantry units. While most are belt-fed ammunition, some models such as the Capellan Vipersting 211 use a 200-round drum instead. Their semi-portable nature means they can be used by a single soldier wearing a gyroscopic harness, but the fact that they normally require a team of two to operate means infantry squads rarely use it as their main support weapon.
