The DC-15S blaster was the blaster carbine variant of BlasTech's DC-15A blaster rifle. This weapon was carried by the clone troopers of the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars. It is currently under the possession of the Alliance of Nations. Smaller in scale than the DC-15A blaster rifle, the DC-15S blaster lacked its larger cousin's range, but was easier to handle than the bulkier "A" variant, with a higher rate of fire. The DC-15S also featured a folding stock for enhanced aiming with braced firing. The length of the trigger pull determined the firing setting (semiautomatic or automatic). This blaster was not a true repeating blaster, but it could handle braced firing much better than its larger cousin, with more accuracy and less prone to overheating. DC-15 blasters fired charged plasma bolts, tibanna cartridges activated by power magazines (replaced by sliding them out of the side of the gun and inserting a new one) and projected down an magnetic accelerating barrel.
