Library MSL g3 2024 does it support LTO 5 drive?

My question is in the topic. So, basically I've this library: MSL g3 2024, and now I'm using a LTO4 drive Ultrium 4 SCSI, I wonder if I can simply change the drive to LTO5 to increase the capability of may backups?

8 Gb Native Fibre Channel

4 Gb Native Fibre Channel
(LTO 6, 5, 4, 3)
6 Gb/sec SAS (LTO 6, 5)
3 Gb/sec SAS (LTO 6, 5, 4, 3)
Ultra320 LVD SCSI (LTO 4, 3

 

only LTO3 and 4 are available with SCSI.


Hope this helps!
