GTW ML-16 Laser
The GTW ML-16 Laser is a Terran-designed primary weapon which was used extensively by the GTA before the Great War. The ML-16 works adequately against hulls and consumes a negligible amount of energy per shot, allowing the pilot to divert more power to engines.
Since the ML-16 was designed during the "shieldless" era of Terran and Vasudan history, it is largely ineffective against shielded targets, such as Shivan fighters and bombers. Despite being ultimately superseded by the GTW Avenger during the opening stages of the Great War, ML-16s were still being distributed among fighter squadrons even as of the Hades Rebellion.
