The LS-150 Heavy Accelerated Charged Particle Repeater Gun (Heavy ACP Repeater) was a large air-cooled repeater with disintegrating plasma cartridges.

DescriptionEdit

Mostly seen in the hands of Trandoshan Elites, the LS-150 was a bit more portable than a turret off a starship. Arakyd Industries manufactured this gun (along with other guns such as the Accelerated Charged Particle Repeater Gun, the Heavy Repeater's little brother.) The LS-150 used a 200 round magazine and chewed through rounds quickly, and these ammo packs were large and bulky, allowing a typical Human to only carry one in reserve.

While ACP weapons generally lacked effectiveness against armored droids, the LS-150s brute firepower and high cycling rate granted its effectiveness against heavy units such as a Super Battle Droid or mass amounts of B1 battle droids. It also tore through living targets such as Humans and Trandoshans mercilessly killing or injuring them very quickly.

For close combat, it had a bayonet to stab enemies in front of one as seen when a heavy mercenary made a clone trooper a victim of it's brute power aboard the Prosecutor.

It had a fairly good range but rather heavy and large for a weapon, compensating for its raw power in both melee action and shooting, which explains why only well-trained users like the Trandoshan heavy mercenary often used this kind of weapon. In fact, it was so heavy that a human carrying it usually had balancing issues, making it difficult for him to run.

HistoryEdit

During the Clone Wars, the weapons were used by Trandoshan mercenaries and slavers.
