LB-X naming
« on: 24 March 2014, 00:00:06 »
Simply out of curiosity, what does the LB-X designation stand for?
Query: Anyone else think Zellbrigen should be renamed Combat IIC?

Hi,

That is a legacy of one of the very rare times where a weapon system was named by its brand, rather than as a generic. LB stands for Lubalin Ballistics, who made the LB-X weapons used in the Star League-era Champion BattleMechs.

Thanks,

- Herb
