The creation of the Light Machine Gun was one of Clan Smoke Jaguar's last acts before they were all but destroyed by the Inner Sphere. It was originally intended as a weapon for ProtoMechs, but it soon made its way onto heavier units. The Capellan Confederation was able to effectively duplicate this design in time for Operation SOVEREIGN JUSTICE.[1]
