The Axis laser weapons are some of the most powerful weapons on the planet, hampered only by their power and engineering requirements, not to mention the intensive training needed to use them effectively. Lasers need to be focused on a point long enough for the laser to burn through, and attenuation limits the effective range. Infantry carried laser weapons especially suffer from the lack of a stable firing platform in combat conditions.
Sigrid Von Thaler has personally trained the very best of the laser grenadiers to be able to operate their laser weapons even beyond what was deemed possible; she once brought down an eagle flying overhead with her laser pistol to make a point. Sigrid can't be everywhere, so the elite laser grenadiers are expected to be able to operate with iron discipline without her around. Their skills with laser weapons are second to none save Sigrid herself.
