The Small Re-Engineered Laser is an offshoot of experiments to mate a Clan Heavy Laser with a Pulse Laser. Though the experiments were unsuccessful, the resulting Re-Engineered Laser family has the unique ability to ignore the effects of Ferro-Lamellor, Hardened, and Reflective Armor. This allows the Small Re-Engineered Laser to inflict its full damage on units protected by those armor types.[2]

The Small Re-Engineered Laser is the smallest member of the Re-Engineered Laser family. Like all Re-Engineered Lasers, the pulse cycle is so short that it only has a -1 to-hit modifier.[1] It is compatible with Targeting Computers. Aside from its unique armor-penetrating properties, it behaves like a standard Small Laser.
