On the modern battle field the common emplacement weapon tends to be the
E-Web heavy repeating blaster or one of its variants. However, in an intense
combat scenario the E-Web just can't put out the firepower that is needed
to inflict high casualties upon enemy forces. To create an alternative,
Belecuu Firearms turned toward a promising engineering and electronics
company for help, Welkret Electronics.
Welkret engineerings word hand-in-hand with engineers from Belecuu for many
long and hard months to create a heavy weapons emplacement far superior to
that of the E-Web. What they came up with was far beyond the wildest dreams
of Belecuu's owners.
The resulting RHH-LH "Leveler" design appears somewhat similar to an E-Web
in basic form. However, the basic tripod that was used as the E-Web's mount
was replaced with a servo-enhanced tripod and the cryocooler was replaced
with a large armored ammunition container which can hold up to three hundred
rounds of ammunition.
The Leveler features an advanced targeting acquistion system and may be set
to "automatic seak and destroy" mode. In this mode, the Leveler will scan
and target any moving objects within a predetermined radius and open fire on
them. However, it can't yet determine allies from enemies and this is usually
done only as a last option.
Another useful feature of the Leveler is the remote guidance and operation
remote (each remote is made specifically for only one Leveler and will not
function on another Leveler) which allows the gunner to operate the weapon
emplacement from a distance of up to twenty meters in case the immediate
area around the weapon isn't safe.
The Leveler can fire two types of ammunition, standard or explosive rounds.
Often times Leveler crews will spend hours before deployment redoing the
ammunition belts coming out of the container boxes with alternating standard
and explosive rounds with every fifteenth round being a standard tracer
round. Such an alternation creates a devastating array of firepower that has
been known to completely decimate entire ranks of enemy troops and vehicles.
