The Mk. 86 OICW is a heavier infantry weapon deployed with human Protectorate troops who expect to see intensive combat, such as Special Forces or SWAT teams (the mainline infantry role is occupied by Mk. 5 Pariah and Mk. 13 Paladin Infantry Drones). Functionally, it is a replacement upper receiver for the smaller Mk. 61, and functions much the same way, with the exception of the bullpup 25mm guided Antimatter missile launcher

While the majority of Systems Protectorate Forces are drones, human Infantry are occasionally required, and with them, conventional assault rifles. The Mk. 61 MAR or " Protectorate railgun" fills that role, serving as a standard issue long arm for Police, security guards, and officers in the field. Assault troops and Special Forces, on the other hand, carry the larger Mk. 86 OICW, which combines a Mk. 61 action with a semiautomatic 25mm guided antimatter missile launcher. Mass produced and issued in the thousands, Mk. 61s are by far the most common long arm in Known Space, used by both the Protectorate and rebels, as well as the militias of some Free Systems.

The Mark 61 MAR is a solenoid-actuated, fully automatic, rifled magnetic accelerator weapon. Its action works as follows:

1. barrel is pulled backward, stripping a slug from the magazine into the chamber.

2. an electric current from the capacitor banks is pulsed through the "rails" printed onto the barrel, expelling the slug at either ~Mach 5 or just below the speed of sound (this allows the weapon to fire in almost complete silence, but significantly decreases power compared to the supersonic setting)

3. The solenoid propels the barrel forward and back, stripping another slug into the chamber.

4. The process repeats.

The MAR fires a 10x35mm hollow-tipped, tungesten cored, pointed steel slug from a 30 round detachable polymer magazine, capable of defeating most conventional body armor and with sustained bursts even the powerful Combat Exoskeletons and Infantry Drones of the Protectorate Military. It's barrel is made of ceramic composite surrounding a rifled steel inner barrel on which 6 electromagnetic rails have been printed by magnetic nanoparticle printing. This is mounted within a solenoid which moves the barrel to cycle the action. The weapon's body is made of an advanced nano-composite, the interior of which is printed with the capacitors and circuitry which make the weapon function. Mounted ontop is a carry handle with built in backup iron sights in case of helmet failure, a laser sight/rangerfinder, and a digital "scope" which connects wirelessly to a solider's eyepiece or helmet. The weapon also has a folding stock and magnetic hardpoints on the sides, top and bottom for mounting equipment, such as guided missile launchers, sonic rams, forgrips or laser cutters.

Like all Protectorate weapons, the Mark 61 incorporates an advanced Identify Friend-Foe system, which both prevents the weapon from firing in the hands of a non-authorized user, and prevents the weapon from firing if it is pointed at any Protectorate Personal or Drones. This system was first designed in 2056 for American police weapons, and modernized in 2167 by "Levy" Artes'ranna, a Follower savant working in the Protectorate's Smart Weapons division, now gone rouge. Normally, this would make the Mk. 61 useless to rebels, but with Levy's help a countermeasure was developed which allows anyone to use the weapon against anything, with a bit of reprogramming. Free Systems programmers have also cracked the program locks, and blackmarket "cracked '61s" go for a premium on some Protectorate worlds.

3,000 pageviews X_^ it's not a lot, I know, but it's way more than I ever expected.

I know it's been a long ass time since I've uploaded anything but I've had some stuff and things going on.

Just note with a detailed description, sketch, or a link to a weapon that needs shoopin'.
No preset/existing weapons.


The M40 is an intermediate weapon between a “PDW” and submachine gun. Designed for vehicle crews, special forces, snipers, and security personnel it supplements the M5 carbine and is preferred by those who want something less conspicuous than a full size rifle. It is chambered in the 10.3x30 Auto Magnum/.40/30, a variation of the 10.3x40 carbine magnum designed to fit in a grip mag. The intergraded muzzle break prevents it from accepting a sound suppressor, but it does make the heavy cartridge controllable in automatic fire. The stock is spring loaded and the sling mounting point allows the weapon to be folded while on the sling and unfolded by pushing the weapon away from the user or pressing the release. The low profile iron sights use tritium-fiber optic glow rods and can be easily used in low light conditions.

H-Tech Defense proudly presents it's newest creation of military small arms: the ARK1

=========
Type: Close Quarters / Mid-range Assault Rifle

Weigth: 1.8kg
Length: 745mm (extended) / 487.5mm (collapsed) / added lenght of suppressor: 180mm (925mm total, extended)
Barrel length: 228mm / 9in

Cartridge: H-TECH 5.7 x 42mm
Action: gas operated, rotating bolt
Muzzle Velocity: 785 m/s
Effective Range: ±300m

Extra functionality: fully ambidextrous, with the exception of folding buttstock 
=========


The original concept of this rifle was the merging of the best of both from the AR (M4/M16) and AK families.
It's main inspiration can be found with the KAC PDW, AK-74u and H&K UMP (folding stock).

The chosen caliber (H-TECH 5.7 x 42mm) is an in-house rifle-lenght adaptation of the famous FN 5.7 PDW round.
This round has the same qualities as the original FN 5.7, but with a bigger punch on longer ranges.

The magazine is a rock-in type, however the locking mechanism has been redesigned, thus giving it the ease of reloading of a rock-in, with the sturdiness and reliability of a mag-well type.
(A technical drawing explaining this mechanism will be provided in a future update)

The ARK1 was purposefully designed for shoulder-switching manouvres in Close Quarters environments. 
It features a rotating charging-handle, which can be rotated over-top to either side, providing the user his preferred configuration at all times.
At the moment, the rounds are simply ejected upwards, an idea borrowed from our good friends in the Czech Republic.
However, the production model will most likely feature a rotating ejector, linked to the rotation of the charging handle.
This can be set up during a field-strip to either always eject on the same side of the charging handle, or eject on the opposite side.
The result will then be that the round is always ejected -away- from the user and his cover wall, no matter how or with what hand the user prefers to operate the charging handle.

All works regarding the ARK project: (more to be added later)

One approach to further developing the XM8, shedding some of its unique parts in exchange for conforming closer to standards.

1. Accepts AR-15 stocks and pistol grips, both to take advantage of existing inventories and to allow for aftermarket customization.

2. The carry handle is removed completely and the charging handle is reconfigured to be easily accessible with the new full-length rail, which is there to allow for a full range of optics packages.

3. The magwell is changed to accept regular NATO magazines, to simplify logistics. You could say that the magazine is the worst part of the AR-15, but improved aftermarket mags solve this issue. The magazine release is also changed to a push-button type.

4. There are symmetrical ejection ports on both sides, both to allow for right-left conversion, and to improve cooling.

5. There are holes to mount side rails for AN/PEQs, flashlights, etc, in lieu of the original PCAP holes.

The internals remain unchanged from the Hk XM8, and the bolt release inside the trigger guard is retained, as is compatibility with the XM320 underbarrel grenade launcher.

The charging handle can be removed and inserted on the opposite side at the operator's preference.

"the most modern technologies have been used to create the most efficent Assault rifle to face the kind of treath the Syndicate-3 is their drones robust bodies are not easy to eliminate so we had to crate the E-12 a weapon that have great penetration abilities ideal to pirce trough their Drones even the Medium armor ones while using the SABOT flechette rounds"
- Maj. Igor A. Kutuzov

The E-12 it's specifically created to increase penetration to reach this the first step was use a perfoming round such as the 6.8mm the CTA ammo have been choosen to permit to operator to carry more rounds (to counter the fact most of the times the operators are outnumbered by the quantity of drones that S-3 can deploy) the weapon also feature a "hyperburst" feature that permit to the weapon to fire super rapid 2 round bursts ideal to increase damage and penetration on target keeping an optimal accuracy also thanks to the rubber stock plate and stock mounted shock absorbers
The weapon can be used with 3 main types of ammunition (from left to right) :
- Standard 6.8mm Ball the most balanced perfomance wise round
- High Propulsion 6.8mm Ammo a derivated of the +P+ russian munition that use overpressure to increase lethality of rounds this is the main reason why the weapon have a fast barrel removal switch infact the HP Ammunition have been proven to reduce the operative life of the barrel drastically
- SABOT Flechette 6.8mm Ammo the most round that can be fired from the E-12 with the highest penetration perfomance the small tungsten flechette is able to pirce easly almost any S-3 drone armor but lacks of punch still it's an ideal round to cripple vital parts of enemy drones rapidly

Cal.: 6.8mm CTA
Mag: light polimer sealed 30 rounds
F. Modes: 3 position Selector semi, 2 round Burst and full-auto and separated safety selector
ROF: 1800 2-round burst than autonomously slow down to 800 RPM
weight: 2.7 Kg
