The Light Naval Gauss Rifle, or Light N-Gauss, is the lightest Naval Gauss Rifle in use by WarShips. It fires a large ferrous slug at a WarShip, JumpShip, or DropShip. The largest drawback to the Light N-Gauss, like all Naval Gauss Rifles, is the sheer cost of the weapon. For the cost of a Light Naval Gauss Rifle, a WarShip can mount several smaller Naval Autocannon. One key benefit to the Light N-Gauss, and all Naval Gauss Rifles, is the extremely low heat they generate when compared to other Capital Weapons.[4]
