The 50mm Rotary Assault Rifle was developed in YE 40 alongside the Spartan General Combat Mecha with the intention of having the former serve as the latter's main weapon; during development, however, it was decided to make the Rotary Assault Rifle a standalone platform usable with other earlier or later mecha.
The Rotary Assault Rifle's high rate of fire, high accuracy, and high damage make it a versatile multipurpose weapon for mecha; additionally, the positioning of its grip towards the weapon's rear allows for a greater range of motion when aiming. The stock can even collapse to improve the Rotary Assault Rifle's handling qualities even further for close-range engagements - though this comes at the cost of a reduction in recoil control.
