The E-Web heavy repeating blaster ("Emplacement Weapon, Heavy Blaster") has been a long-standing fixture as a small- and medium-sized unit gun emplacement. The weapon has been repeatedly proven a top choice for anti-infantry actions, as a joint venture between BlasTech and Merr-Sonn; it received wide distribution throughout the galaxy's various military organizations. BlasTech's new E-Web(16) is a revolution in heavy blasters. BlasTech beat the odds once again and developed a one man version of their famed E-Web. The E-Web(16), often called the "Porta-Web," is nothing more than the main weapon off of a standard E-Web that has been reduced in size and mass. It is powered generally by a combination back pack generator and cryocooler unit.
The weapon is outfitted with a high-demand portable Eksoan power generator and is fitted with the new Gk9 Cryocooler unit (to keep the weapon from overheating in combat). All of this is incorporated into a single 20 kilogram back pack generator/cryocooler unit which provides the user with limited firing capacity. The unit's cooling coils must be replaced after 20 hours of field use.
While the original E-Web was intended as a two man weapon for fixed emplacements, the E-Web (16) was meant to be deployed to the New Republic's Special Forces, mainly their Heavy Weapons Specialists.
