The Support Laser is a common crew-served infantry support weapon. Equivalent to a BattleMech's Small Laser, the Support Laser is too heavy and bulky for one soldier to carry, and even the largest power packs provide only a few shots. However, it can be mounted on battle armor and a special port allows it to plug into the power system of a vehicle or building.[3]
