The Small Laser is a free-electron laser which focuses a beam of light on targets to cause damage.[5] The compact size of the Small Laser allows it to be equipped and used efficiently on practically anything; however the reduced firepower means that Small Lasers are not usually used on heavier combat devices such as 'Mechs or tanks. Small lasers can also be mounted on battle armor or used as an infantry support weapon by conventional infantry, where it is referred to as a "Support Laser."[1]


The Small Laser is manufactured on the following planets:
