The SM1As carry four LMGs in an array, but their real firepower is packed in their LB 20-X ACs.

Another illegal swarm...

50 Resgate Support points at 80BV2 each puts 250 LMGs on the board.  But they only move 3MPs.

Clan Ice Hellion Flurry

Incubus 5 1364 BV2
Incubus 5 1364 BV2
Bellona Hover Tank (Laser) 1262 BV2

Total 3990 BV2

Each Incubus carries four LMGs, but their main firepower comes from an ATM-6 and dual ER Medium Lasers.  The Incubus 5 is a Hellion variant, but still moves 9/14.

The Bellona (Laser) also carries four LMGs, but with an ER Large Laser and LRM-10, it’s a backfield fire support platform.  The Bellona is an exclusive Horse design, but it went into production on the Homeworlds and was in the Horse OZ before the Hellion’s ill-fated Spheroid campaign.  The Hellions’ Flurry formations make use of captured vehicles, and they would appreciate the Bellona’s 9/14 speed.

I believe the pure infantry solution is the most extreme possible with 384 MGs in 48 platoons of Foot Platoon (MG)s for 3,984 BV.  For the record, never do this.

The Adder has ten MGs, a Pulse Large Laser, and Pulse Small Laser on a 6/9 platform.

Each Rache carries an MG on a suit with a jump of 3MPs but will do most of their damage via two SRM-3(OS) and anti-mech attacks.

See, its stuff like this that drives a man to commit war crimes.

It's not my fault I used napalm on those people, they had it coming when they came out with 400 machine guns.

And by Napalm you mean Arrrow IV Inferno missiles, right?
