The Lascarbine is a carbine form of the standard Imperial Lasgun that is easier to carry and to aim than its larger counterpart. It will often possess a folding stock. However, as a result of these modifications, a Lascarbine has a shorter range and will fire fewer shots before depleting its power pack when compared to a standard Lasgun.
A Lascarbine is designed for use by special operations units, and is usually employed by Drop Troopers or scout units of the Imperial Guard. It is light and compact, allowing it to be easily stowed away so that it does not interfere with the carrier's mobility. It has been used by the Tanith First and Only regiment, the regiments of the Elysian Drop Troops, the regiments of the Catachan Jungle Fighters and Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn.
