The GS-3 is the predecessor of the assault scout. The forward firing system is comprised of the guns from a laser battery fixed in a forward firing position (essentially a "light laser cannon", hence the LC program). The dorsal laser battery is a standard battery. The atomic drives have been retuned for more acceleration at the cost of reduced maneuverability. Once the assault scout was introduced, it replaced the gunned scout in SpaceFleet. However, the gunned scout is still available to planetary militias as well as civilian applications (albeit performance is standard ADF/MR: 4/4 for the latter market), which tend to favor mega-corps and the like.
