I liked the design enough to wonder what a fully auto carbine would look like. so here is a WIP.

v1.2

FORGOT TOP RAIL FOR LEFT SIDE PIC ARGH..will fix later.

has extendable buttstock, with recoil absorber, chamberd in 6.8mm. Bolt locks in open position after firing the last shot, rack it back further and release after inserting a fresh magazine.

1.3

Added longer RIS rail
new Iron Sights
new flash supressor

Original Concept Lineart
Left Side
Field Stripped
Right Side




Colored and shaded version of my M290 submachine gun concept. This view shows off a few ways in which the M290 can be customized for different missions. The top version mounts an EOTech holographic sight and suppressor for covert missions; the bottom version is a vehicle crew variant with flash hider and short 15-round magazine.

The M290 is a bullpup submachine gun chambered in .45ACP with an advanced recoil compensation system mounted above the barrel (cf. this similar weapon). Its method of operation is the tried-and-true closed bolt blowback system, used by the ubiquitous HK MP5 and UMP weapons.

Done entirely in Photoshop CS3. Used my usual modus operandi: scanned pencil sketch, vector lineart, texture, overlay shading. Aside from a few minor (if obvious) mistakes, I think it came out well.

Just some doodle stuck in my head from the last 6 months...

Here's another variants :
Carbine Variant [link]
Support Sniper Rifle Variant [link]
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Caliber : NATO 5.56mm (HVATR-L), in STANAG-compatible magazine
: NATO 7.62mm (HVATR-H), in STANAG-compatible magazine
Unit Length : 900mm
Unit Weight : 3.0 kg
Barrel Length : 19 inch
Rate of Fire : 850 RPM

The HVATR, stands for High Versatility Adaptive Tactical Rifle, represents the most advanced warfare technology in personnel armament, complying to the NATOís 2032 CVA (Compact Versatile Armament) admission contest. Developed by Reinhardt Armaments, a subsidiary corporation from Reinhardt Foundation, the HVATR is capable of adapting into any conflict situations, while retaining its high performance and low-maintenance capability.

Designed by the R&D Division of Reinhardt Institute, the HVATR allows the use of multiple types of rounds, from soft-ball training rounds to heavy armor piercing rounds, without losing a significant amount rate of fire. The recoil is reduced, by using a recoil dampener built under the barrel, up almost to 70% on full automatic fire, and almost to 85% on burst and single fire mode.

The assaule rifle variant of HVATR were equipped by default with a detachable red-dot optical sight with zoom power up to 1.5x, increasing the accuracy in close quarter combat. Added with upper and lower Picatinny rail, the HVATR allows the flexibilty in optical sight selection and external equipment, giving customizable configuration up to each userís needs.

Fictional weapon for Nationstates.

After finding out the stocks of AK-74M rifles were rapidly losing their edge against similar weapons in other nations and learning from firing practices that the bullpup AV-88 battle rifles were all but useless in sustained fire due to the very large round they fired, a brief design competition was established to choose a true successor for the Kalashnikova with the conditions that it share its reliability but fires a more effective round, 6.8mm, and integrates use of lightweight polymers to build its frame.

Amongst the various entries was Voskovorsmash GUP's VS13 rifle, taking some features from the AEK-971, an assault rifle that had found no use within Birkanian units outside of the Interior Ministry and even then only marginally, and updating them with a modern frame. From its predecessor it kept the balancing system of its firing mechanism, where a counterweight was moved forwards as the gun fired in full-automatic, preventing muzzle climb and loss of accuracy even in sustained fire. While it kept some part commonality with the AK, its major components were fabricated in polymer to reduce weight.

The plastic parts of the gun, that ended up being accepted in Birkanian service alongside were often printed in camouflage patterns, but given the Birkanian Army's history of desert warfare, the flat tan version of the gun became the most iconic. It was also the first weapon to make use of the GP45 underbarrel 40mm grenade launcher that was developped paralelly, and has largely supplanted older grenade launchers in service on all branches, given its higher variety of munitions.

A High Caliber flavor of the X-BR 5.1, with ejection port.

I know it still says 6.8 lol.

supposed to be 7.62x51, proportions are probably wrong.

Behold! I call it the IWS MkI, developed by Ground Level Armament Solutions Inc. It's pictured chambered for 6.8SPC for maximum ass kicking performance but available in 5.56 and 6.5MPC for your war fighting convenience. Check my gallery for more details found in the previously submitted outline for this weapon. Part of the concept involved iron sights and I'm thinking they would be very simplistic like the fold down variety found on a SIG carbine ... or there is always your imagination. The pictured ACOG has BUIS, a piggy back mini red dot and of course 4x optics, so it's a pretty complete solution all in one package. With it, the 6.8mm cartridge and 16 inch barrel this is a well rounded gun from muzzle to 400 yards. The other 10% will consist of a SAW, sniper/long range solution(s), side-arm and a purpose built weapon for special forces. I'll have to design the last one, the others already exist today.

FWIW this isn't any of that PMG stuff ... which I guess is obvious. It's all PS CS3 and Ai CS3. The Tango Down, ACOG, and Surefire light are photographic elements with some repaint touch ups in PS.

The KP-60 assault rifle. Araea's current issue military rifle.
Issued to the Army, Naval Coast Patrol, Dirigble Corps. It is also widely used by many of the islands urban police forces, most notably by New Hope's paramilitary Metropolitan Policing Authority, who generally issue them to every patrol unit.
This weapon was originally based upon a mix of AK, M1 garand and StG-44 characteristics mostly, and as far as it's niche is concerned it is basically Araea's AK analogue - an inexpensive reliable weapon manufactured in large numbers.

---------------------------------------
The idea of a selective-fire rifle utilizing a lighter intermediate powered cartridge has its genesis during the height of the anti-skryke campaign when a need was recognized for a fully automatic weapon that bridged the gap between the submachine gun and the older bolt action and self loading rifles in use at the time. The early KG-35 models developed toward the end of the war proved reliable and accurate but were nearly impossible to control on full auto and the fully automatic capability was abandoned on later production models. It was determined that smaller and less powerful round would be more effective in an automatic rifle. Although smaller caliber prototypes were developed by several firms during the conflict none proved satisfactory in the field and the automatic rifle concept never came to fruition during this period. Late in the war, a pistol caliber substitute was developed in the form of the CCM-750, which proved immensely popular with those troops fortunate enough to receive them.
The modified semiautomatic-only KG-35s meanwhile were adopted as standard issue by the Araean armed forces to serve as their main battle rifle, with the CCM-750 submachine gun adopted for roles requiring a smaller, fully automatic weapon.
The select-fire rifle concept was resurrected a decade later as hostilities between the New Hope government and the various separatist and militia forces began to escalate. This renewed interest eventually led to the Kirscher Design Bureau turning out the KP-55 automatic rifle, designed around a new shortened and lightened 5.9x43mm cartridge. The KP-55 would eventually be modified into the improved KP-60 series, which went on to become standard issue for the Araean armed forces (made up of the Army, Navy, Dirigible Corps.) mostly replacing both the older 7.8mm KG-35s and the CCM-750 submachine gun in Araean military inventories.
The KP-60 series has developed a reputation for being nearly unstoppable in dusty conditions. It is also cheap to produce and can continue to function with minimal cleaning and other maintenance however the KP-60 also has its detractors who bemoaned the adoption of the rifle, claiming its full auto capability leads to an overreliance on "spray" fire and a de-emphasis on individual marksmanship. It has also been criticized for several aspects of its design, such as stiff controls as well as rather loose tolerances which are said to prevent the rifle from making the most of the 5.9x43mm cartridge's accuracy potential.
The 5.9 cartridge itself, with less range and power then the 7.8mm round was initially viewed with skepticism regarding it's fitness as a "universal" cartridge, but was quite sufficiently lethal to a skryke or human target at the respective average engagement distances for each. Additionally, replacing the KG-35 and CCM-750 with *one* weapon that could perform the essential roles of either was considered a plus to the Araean military.
Despite some of the shortcomings the Armed Forces seem quite satisfied with the weapon overall. Many provincial militia units utilize this weapon as their standard issue rifle as well, particularly those with the financial backing required to acquire newer equipment, such as those in Xiaoxing province.
It has earned popularity with police units as well. The weapon is commonly found in the hands of New Hope's paramilitary Metropolitan Policing Authority. The Wuestenpolizei have a small number in circulation with its patrol units as well but given that a large part of the Wuestenpolizei's duties consist of putting down rogue dinosaurs, a task that the 5.9mm is not well suited for, the WuPos are more often seen carrying older, larger caliber weapons. The weapon is also sometimes found in the hands of civilians but it's relative newness makes it an uncommon sight.

So the purpose of this is to illustrate the 90% solution. It requires an intermediate cartridge like the 5.56 or 6.8SPC firstly (a cartridge designed for 16-20 inch barrels), and it's pictured with a standard AR magazine, two components our current military could continue using more effectively from a bullpup design like this.
-Secondly, the fuzzy shadow in the background is of a collapsed stock M4 Carbine as close to correct size as I could manage, showing that even with the 20inch barrel or the suppressed 16 inch (top image), this design is still as compact as the M4.
-Third, I changed it to incorporate user configurable rails on 3, 6 and 9:00 positions.
-The bottom image is of my Designated Marksmen Rifle (DMR) version. Rather than lego systems or common receiver systems, this requires only a barrel and optic change, both of which can be done in seconds by the user. Rails could be bolted to the bottom and a bipod could be stuck on too to round out the role.

I used photographic elements in this and that scope is like 4 grand which is nothing more than overpriced tacticool BS (though the ACOG is plenty pricey). But, a scope that offers something like 1 or 2 to 8 power magnification really does sound ideal for the DMR. That said, a good ole fashion scope and offset irons or dot sight would work just as well.
