First developed in 2470 by the Terran Hegemony the Support Particle Cannon (sometimes known by Semi-Portable Particle Cannon, an alternate name it shares with the Man-Pack PPC). When it was first deployed, it required a crew of roughly 10 (the gunner and around 9 assistant gunners.) By the time of the clan invasion it was replaced with 5 crew model for use with Motorized and Mechanized Infantry Forces.
Despite its good anti-vehicle damage, its high crew requirement ensures that this weapon is not used as any foot infantry unit's long-term primary weapon. It is most often found mounted on vehicles or placed in firing positions, or on fortifications. .
