Under Construction

This powerful cannon was introduced in the jungles of South America to provide sufficient firepower to ground infantry in fighting off rogue Zentraedi. The RL-1 was seen to have too limited ammunition capacity. The PM-5 was designed to pack significant penetration as well as destructive capability in a semi-portable frame consistent with previous 20mm cannons used by mechanized infantry. The PM-5 was never produced in large quantities due to the rapid power drain of the precious protoculture cells. However, this cannon has been seen demolishing an invid Shock Trooper with a single hit.
