The Light Recoilless Rifle is an adapted version of the self-same infantry support weapon which can be mounted on Battle Armor. Examples of these weapons were first employed by the Capellan Confederation during the Capellan-St. Ives War, mounting them on numerous field refits of the Inner Sphere Standard and Fa Shih armors.[1]
