Developed by the Draconis Combine, the Heavy PPC is a larger, more potent version of the Particle Projector Cannon. The Heavy PPC has the same damage potential and heat buildup of a Clan ER PPC. However, it lacks the range of that weapon, as well as possessing greatly increased weight and bulk. During the Jihad, the technology made its way throughout the Inner Sphere.
