GM-11 Gauss LMG

by Scott Quigg

The GM-11 represents a departure from typical SAW's. It was felt by Covenant of Sufffren Board that typical SAWs needed a substantial increase in fire power to justify lugging such a heavy weapon around the modern battlefield. The GM-11b is the standard weapon carried by all Battledress equipped troops. The GM-11b doesn't possess the bipod making its recoil slightly greater in force, but this is compensated by the superior strength of the armor. The GM-11 can literally take control of the battlefield.

"What the GM-11b gives is the ability to carry a highly portable and effective weapon system without sacrificing any endurance or armor. Plasma weapons and LAGs are still the big boys, but the GM-11b packs as much firepower as an Imperial VRF at a tenth of the weight!!!" Lance Corporal Scott "Behemoth" Sanders; 1st Shock Brigade, CSMC.
