The MA5B/VC ICWS Assault Rifle is a variant of the popular MA5B assault rifle that was configured for use in zero-g vacuum combat. It has small thrusters in the frame to steady aim while firing, as well as a mag-call device which can be stripped to a soldier so if he goes spinning and he loses his grip he will not lose his weapon. It is practically the MA5B with mircothrusters, but is still a good weapon. It has the same clip size and rate of fire, but it is made of slightly lighter materials that are also slightly stronger, as well as more resistant to extreme cold. It is used almost exclusively by the EABTs, and is their primary weapon during zero-g ops.
