The Improved Heavy Large Laser is Clan Goliath Scorpion's most powerful Heavy Laser design. Like the version introduced by Clan Star Adder, it can inflict twice the damage of a standard Large Laser. Unlike the Star Adder's weapon, it doesn't interfere with targeting systems, so Scorpion Warriors have a better chance of hitting their target.
The Improved Heavy Large Laser's only real drawback is the fragility of the capacitors it uses to store power. Much like a Gauss Rifle, an Improved Heavy Laser will explode if destroyed in combat, inflicting a hit equivalent to a Large Laser to the 'Mechs internal structure.
The Improved Heavy Large Laser is manufactured on the following planets:
|Series XVI-a||Sudeten||Olivetti Weaponry||Thunderbolt IIC|||
|Series 5D-1||Orestes||Janesek Industries||Tyre 3|||
|Model X2||Twycross||DS Aero Assembly Site Rho||Hydaspes 3|||
