37 (who?)
R7A1 Rifle by Skariaxil R7A1 Rifle by Skariaxil
Well, this took it's time, no?
Fires 10x46mm case less ammunition. The stuff I posted several nanoseconds before this (Except for the Entry Carbine, it's been converted to 10x23mm by a bolt change and a magazine adaptor)

Thought I'd give them some more stats too.

Feeding system: 64 round casket magazine

-Heat sink handguard with bipod attachment point

-Trijicon ACOG-MGO 6x48mm (I hated doing this one. ACOGs have so many soft curvy bits. Normally I rather like soft curvy bits, but not so much on stuff I'm trying to draw in MSPaint).

Directed Energy Pacification System

>pulsed laser (power: 32 MW)
>super capacitor bank (total power: 50 kW, stored energy: 9 kJ)
>storage stock with cheek rest

Length: 686mm
Barrel length: n/a

-TangoDown vertical grip
-DEPS PDCU (Power Distribution and Computation Unit)
-Trijocon SRS
-DEPS DVO (Data Visual Output)

The bottom one requires a bit of an explanation I suppose.
It's a PEP weapon (Pulsed Energy Projectile). The theory is that a very short but extremely powerful laser pulse ablates a little bit of material by heating it into a plasma state. The resulting explosion is comparable to a small flash-bang grenade going off, along with a nice or nasty surprise (depending on your point of view): it temporarily paralyzes whomever is withing the blast radius of the plasma (plasma being a mixture of loose protons, electrons and neutrons, generates quite an electric field, scrambling the nervous-system).
To directly feed the laser, there is a bank of super capacitors, storing enough energy for 50-odd shots. The capacitor bank is slowly recharged by the zinc-air battery (cleverly disguised as a magazine).
Even though it literally burns the skin from your bones, the actual physical harm won't be worse than a 2nd degree burn, as the laser pulse duration is far to short to burn much deeper than the stratum corneum.

Nicely done - possibly one of the best looking bullpup designs I've ever seen. The fictional firearms group is having a contest right now that this almost works for. You'd have to make one more variant I guess but we'd love to have you.
I already entered it, but if I'm allowed to change my entry I'll see if I can make an IAR-ish weapon work.
Thanks for the compliments, by the way.

Hey, I only see this entry on that folder. Did you still want the other one to be an entry?
The older one didn't have the LMG and energy weapon variant, I assumed they were mandatory.
CzechBiohazard Sep 20, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah, alright. So which one is the SMG variant in this one?
If I slightly edited it, would that be okay?
(I completely forgot about the SMG since the 'Entry Carbine' is meant to do more or less fulfill the same role)
CzechBiohazard Sep 21, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, you can edit it. I'm voting on Monday.
oh awesome! You can submit more than one the way I understand it.
So, I uploaded the new file. I'm all set for the contest now, right?
