Considering that a marine can in theory throw someone in Terminator Armour due to the mad way carry weight and lifting strength is done, yes. See http://1d4chan.org/i...gie_McIsaac.png for a potentially intriguing comedic example. At SB12 plus your TB of 8, going on the rules from P208 you can carry about 2.2 metric tons. A heavy bolter is only 68kg. And this is only going on the lifting chart as written, it's daft and whoever wrote it needs shooting. Unnatural Marine Strength and Toughness plus power armour make for stupidly high carry capacity. Theoretically then, assuming you had a way to secure this to your person then yes.
Our group found an easier way to consider what gear and weapons someone can carry is to use the rule of five hands.
A character can feasibly and securely carry five hands worth of weapons. (Gear is not generally considered since much of it is small)
Pistols and melee weapons usually require one hand. (EG Bolt Pistols or Chainswords)
Most other guns and large melee weapons require two hands. (EG Flamers, Boltguns, Claymore)
Heavy guns need three hands. (EG Heavy Bolter/Las Cannon etc)
This means a player can feasibly carry either five small melee weapons or pistols, two bolterlike weapons and a sidearm melee/pistol or one heavy weapon and a bolter/two pistol combination.
