The PLG-1NL is a variant of the -1N and has therefore a slightly different
mission profile. While the -1N is something like a mobile (and brutal)
infighter, the -1NL can provide firesupport. Though sacrificing raw firepower
against range, two Class-5 autocannons and one ppc deliever notable damage -
also they match perfectly in concerning their bracket. In case of an enemy at
close range, the -1NL has five medium laser to get rid of any threat. Three
machine-guns have a devastating effect on any unarmored infantry. Beside these
guns are also able to find any weak spot in armor of mechs or vehicles.

Armor and mobility are roughly the same of the Star-League Pillager. Three
jump-jets and nineteen tons are more than sufficient to cope with any enemy.
Though an alpha-strike is not recommended, heat-management is rather easy - the
minimum range of the mainguns makes an alpha useless.

I like the use of the dual AC/5s, but swapping one and it's ton of ammo out for a PPC would be a straight upgrade. Otherwise I can't see any way to improve on it, though I am a weirdo who likes seeing machine guns on my assaults.

I would probably play around to get a second PPC in, but it's fine the way it is.  While it may not have the most damage for such a huge assault at range, it can deal out damage consistently without heat build up, and then slam anything getting in close with even more firepower.  Nice 3025 era retro-fit.
