The Light Machine Gun was originally created by Clan Smoke Jaguar for use by their ProtoMechs, trading firepower for superior range and accuracy over traditional Machine Guns. Originally fielded only by the Clans, the Inner Sphere eventually created their own version of Light Machine Guns for use by battle armor by deriving the design from semi-portable machine guns normally used by infantry forces.
