Thought I'd show a few pictures of the individual Arms that the soldiers of all the factions carry
Many of the arms spread across the sector were originally supplied by the former Brikrigton Empire, Between G.R 1997 and G.R 2002 The Empire mainly issued it's soldiers laser weaponry, Somewhere along the line, some beauracrat decided that laser weaponry was too inefficient and not "manly" enough, So solid projectile weaponry was re-introduced. After the breakup of the empire collapsed many of the Imperial standard weapons found themselves being used by multiple factions, while some new weapons were created after the breakup aswell. Caspians use the designation "XM", Kamaz use "AK" and the Volk "STGW", The designation "M" was used by the defunct Brikrigton Empire.
A short description will be provided for each weapon, pattern will start with the top left, and go down. then it will continue to the top of the next column and so forth
If it is mentioned that a weapon is "A particulalry old design" or something of the likes, this is basically just saying that I had first started giving these to my soldiers a long time ago, and vice versa
Part I - Rifles and Heavy Rifles
M2003 Combat Rifle - The first mass produced Combat rifle in the sector, Fairly accurate and powerful, This Rifle is still used Sector-wide by all factions, It is still produced in all areas,
M2005 Combat Rifle - An easier to produce version of the M2003, It has been produced in greater numbers, and is still used by most militaries as a front line weapon
XM-XS Special Combat Rifle - A less common weapon that was originally produced by the Caspian Federation, but found itself sold on the black market to other factions
XM2012T - A Heavier Relative to the Caspian XM2012, Often issued one per squad for fire support, In terms of sheer firepower it is only outdone by the Kamazian AK10K
M1997 - An old design that is no longer produced in any advanced civilization, was originally a standard service rifle until it was replaced by the M2003 and M2005
M1997 DMR - Many M1997 Rifles were converted to Sniper rifles as they still had the power , range and accuracy to perfom the job well. Many factions performed this conversion
XM2012 - A new rifle used almost exclusivley by the Caspians, the XM2012 bridges the gap between Light rifle and Regular, Serves alongside the XM2003 and
XM2005 in the Caspian Military.
M2004 - A less common service rifle that was introduced near the end of the Empire, it saw little service during the empire but had a second chance during the post-imperial period, in particular with the Volkan military where it has been used more than other factions
AK10K - A Kamazian Heavy rifle that has no equal, Often issued 1 per squad or fireteam, It can dismember minifigs in single shots.
STGW2008 - The Volkan equivalent of a heavy rifle, It is less powerful than the Kamazian and Caspian counterparts, but has a higer firerate, it was built off a failed Imperial design
M2000 Prototype - The M2000 Was a failed Imperial attempt at making a replacement for the M1997, However the Empire was never able to manufacture it in large numbers, Prototypes still float around the sector.
M1993 CCW - A Close Quarters shotgun of pre-Imperial design, newer models are still poking around in some militaries
