The DC-15S Blaster Carbine was a lighter, more compact blaster used by the GAR's Clone Troopers. It had a more limited range than the DC-15A, but it was also more easier to move around with. It had a setting that could make it switch to automatic plasma bolts. CT-1312 was a very well-known user of this weapon. It was also easier to clean and change power-packs than its larger cousin the DC-15A rifle.
