The CZ-837 LMG (Light Machine Gun) was designed as apart of Czerka Arms' new line of modern slugthrowers poised to effectively compete with the energy weapons saturating the militant market. Designed with the roles of heavy assault, anti-personnel, and general support in mind, the CZ-837 LMG boasts the ability to quickly and efficiently eliminate opposing personnel. As a whole, it has been equipped with a high-powered firing mechanism that can propel slugs swiftly and over large distances. (It is noted that the penetration strength, speed, and accuracy of fired rounds dramatically decreases as said rounds exit the CZ-837's effective range.) Like its sibling, the CZ-836 Assault Rifle, the total sum of the weapon's piercing ability is such that a slug fired within the rifle's effective range can penetrate a 3/8" plate of pure durasteel. In addition, as is the case with the entirety of Czerka Arms' new weaponry, the CZ-837 benefits from the versatility of numerous slug types available. There is, quite literally, a slug for every occassion and the owned of this weapon can load the rifle's ammunition drum as they see fit.

However, the CZ-837 LMG is not without its drawbacks. While the weapon has an exceptional fire rate, effective range, and overall versatility, the rifle suffers in terms of reloading. On average, the process by which the rifle is reloaded requires at the very least five seconds to properly complete; whereas a blaster rifle of similar function can be reloaded in a fraction of the time. Furthermore, the magazine capacity pales in comparison to that which a blaster is capable of; which is the drawback of all slugthrowers when compared to blasters. Despite these weaknesses, the CZ-837 LMG is an exceptional slugthrower that would be a great asset to any militant force in the Galaxy.
