The Medium Laser is a laser weapon mounted on battle armor suits and equivalent to the self-same weapon mounted on BattleMechs and Combat Vehicles. Based on the venerable Heavy Support Laser, it is no longer in use by the Clans but serves as the primary weapon on several Inner Sphere designs such as the Kanazuchi.[3][4]
