  • Suppression weapon squad that can upgrade to either an autocannon for moderate anti-everything damage or a lascannon for high anti-vehicle damage
  • The only heavy weapon squad that can get a squad leader, which grants survivability and knockback immunity
  • The only heavy weapon squad that can repair vehicles and buildings, further improving IG synergy with vehicles
