AP5+/AT5+ would be a super upgrade from the standard Missile Launcher, the range drop is irrelevant as Marines want to be within 15cm for supporting fire if possible.
I quite dislike the bland "heavy weapon" name.
You want to downgrade 'em, give 'em Heavy Bolters.

Then give 'em Multi-Meltas.
Don't just make up an abstract "heavy weapon".

Weapon Range Firepower Notes
Lascannon 45cm AT5+ -

All your Devs could have a lascannon and a heavy bolter or missile launcher.

You could arm the tacticals with plasma cannon.
