The '''Large 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 Armor|Hardened]], and [[Reflective Armor]]. This allows the Large Re-Engineered Laser to inflict its full damage on units protected by those armor types.<ref name="FM:3145p244/>
The Large Re-Engineered Laser is the largest of the Re-Engineered Laser family. Like all Re-Engineered Lasers, as it uses shorter pulses it only receives a -1 to hit modifier.<ref name=errata1/> It is compatible with [[Targeting Computer]]s. Aside from its unique armor-penetrating properties, it behaves like a standard [[Large Laser]].<ref name=IOp89>''Interstellar Operations, p.89 - RE-ENGINEERED LASERS "Updated description of weapon and rules of use."</ref>
