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.

-clamp-on night vision module
-Schmitd&Bender 3-12x50 PM II

Feeding system: 64 round casket magazine

-Bipod
-Heat sink handguard with bipod attachment point
-TangoDown Vertical grip
-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
Weight: 4635g
Weight (bare bones): 2850g
Feeding system: GCE zinc-air 9V/62kAh battery

-Electric bayonet
-Laser dazzler
-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.

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)
