Heavy VLS missile system,
14x 60mm gatling Infinite Repeaters
The Bolo Mark six was a direct descendant of the Mark III "mobile firebase" concept. While it had the same power plant and computer support of the Mark V , its railgun main armament was replaced by a VLS missile system. To compensate for the lack of a railgun, the 60mm infinite repeaters were upgraded to 7 guns per side.
The Mobile Firebase Concept was the PreCursor, the actual "First Inkling", of the "PLANETARY Siege Unit" which required the VLS Missile as it's main Primary Weapons System.
Note: The HelBore remained a Primary but was limited to a degree by it's direct LOS requirement. The Hellbore remained the main Primary in orbital engagements.
(The Hellbore was Initially Line-Of-Sight, then in post-apocopalyptic Marks a "Line-of-Scan" multi-vector guided munition. The HellBore continued to increase in diameter.)
