It is probably because they don't need all the gadgets and gizmos in the Space Marine armour, Space Marine armour monitors life signs, gives drugs, and a huge amount of other stuff. Also, the Sisters of Battle aren't 7 ft. tall, genetically enhanced killing machines (even though they do kick butt). The Space Marines just need a lot more incorperated into thier armour.

hmm i'd have to agree with kireguy.
SoB are not genetically enhanced. Thus that is why they are slower and weaker in toughness than a space mareiun

And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
Anyway. Terminator Armor is RARE. So RARE that only Space Marine Chapters are gifted it, it takes a long time to make and probally even longer to figure out which chapter gets it. Beyond that, I doubt without a LOT of genetic manipulation that a Sister could even use the suit with all the intergrated systems it has.
The reason given in the codex about the 'weaker armor' is because the SM's armor is self supporting, its got the equivilent of muscles, also the SM are given the Black Carapace, it lets them connect to the suit and use it like a second skin. SoB armor is just the protection element, not the powered element, pretty much SoB are more normal than SM!
but sisters of battle still weaker are still able to hold all those wepons like heavy bolters even though and imperial gaurd cant even hold a bolter
I'm sure a Guardsman could hold a bolter.
The recoil might be another story, though.
On the other hand, a lasgun would have extremely little to no recoil, and operate better in most conditions, which is probably why they use it.

SoB Power Armor is much more solid and supporting and IG armor(Flak I think). Also the SoBs get SM like helmets so it improves thier accuracy, the IG use the Heavy Bolter on a tripod. They can still hold it, the recoil may due some damage but it would be possible for and IG to hold and shoot and HB, good idea for conversions......
Funny thing is, it seems most players tend to not use helmets for the girls.
