==Description==The '''Machine Gun Array''' ('''MGA''') was developed in [[3068]] by the [[Federated Suns]]. Despite that, the [[Taurian Concordat]] was actually the first power to use them, as they had pilfered the technology from the FedSuns and were able to quickly reverse engineer and put it into production. [[Clan Diamond Shark]] also created an identical [[Clan]] version that was unveiled around roughly the same time.<ref name="TMp228"/>
The Machine Gun Array itself allows two to four [[machine gun]]s of the same type (standard, [[Light Machine Gun|light]], or [[Heavy Machine Gun|heavy]]) to be linked and fired as one. <ref name="TMp228"/>
