The way I see it, LAs are an Assault Class and should be treated that way, and not a support class. I think any tool given to them should increase their combat effectiveness like the little brother to the HA that they should be. I'd suggest grenade launchers, Higby's Rocklet rifle/Thumper sounds perfect! Different ammo types for different roles, etc! Another great idea I read somewhere was for a stim pack, it would be a tool that looks similar to the Medkits, and when used it would increase running speed, weapon draw speed/reload, etc. for such-and-such a time period. I think, personally, this would be downright perfect for LA, as well as adding the rocklet rifle/thumper.
