Introduced in 3059 by Clan Star Adder developed the heavy lasers to deal more damage, but the side effect of that was increased heat output. In addition, interference with a BattleMech's sensors means that a Heavy Medium Laser is penalized with a +1 to-hit modifier.[4]


The Heavy Medium Laser is exclusively fielded by the Clans. As such, there are no Inner Sphere models.


The Heavy Medium Laser is manufactured on the following planets:
