HUD Link (TL9)
Connected to a heads-up display (p. 24), this shows augmented-reality targeting imagery in the user’s field of view. The link shows him exactly where his firearm is pointing (+1 Acc within 300 yards, not cumulative with the Acc bonus for other targeting systems), the number of shots remaining, and – if using a laser sight or other active targeting device – the distance to the target. The user can exploit this to see around corners, exposing only his weapon.

Multispectral Laser Sight (TL9)
This device projects a low-powered eye-safe laser beam, placing a laser spot at the point where the weapon will hit. A standard feature of all TL9+ firearms, it helps the user aim or intimidate opponents.
A laser sight gives a +1 to skill when used out to the weapon’s 1/2D range, provided the dot is visible to the shooter. It can be set to use any one of these frequencies:
Visible Light: This projects a visible red, blue, or orange spot. The laser beam itself is visible only in dusty or smoky environments – which might describe many firefights!
Infrared: An infrared laser beam projects a dot that is invisible without an infrared or hyperspectral vision system.
Ultraviolet: The dot of this ultraviolet laser beam is invisible without an ultraviolet or hyperspectral vision system.

Bio:

The Helborne 10mm is the standard longarm weapon of the CotUA and ECU Planetary Marine Corps. ACon uses a similar design. Rugged and reliable, the Helborne has been a favourite for two decades, shrugging in the face of the more efficient laser longarms favoured by the TNSC’s SecForce.
Most often the weapon is supplied with APEP (Armor-Piercing Enhanced Penetrator) ammunition to increase the soldier’s capability off breeching a target’s armor, even over long distances. (x2 range, armor divisor (3), P damage reduced 1 step).
The firearm comes standard with “Smart” electronics, +1 to skill rolls to fix damage or malfunctions; an electronic access system – biometric scanner – that limits usage to authorized persons. Unauthorized users cannot fire the weapon – typically set to allow everyone in a unit to share weapons; HUD link to a helmet or goggle head-up display, +1 Acc within 300m; multi-spectral laser sight.
