Sidearm(s) of your Nation's Military

Postby Novariea » Thu May 26, 2011 7:00 am

I realise that we've have a thread (or much more likely multiple threads) on this subject before, but they all seem to have long been forgotten. Therefore, I thought I would start this new one.

On Topic: If your nation's military issues a sidearm (or sidearms) what is it/are they? Even if your nation does not issue it's regular infantrymen with sidearms, feel free to include any sidearms issued to officers and/or special forces instead.

The primary sidearm of the Novariean Army, Navy and Air Force is the Heckler & Koch USP, chambered in .45 ACP:

The standard sidearm for all four branches of the Vassenor Federal Armed Forces is the .45ACP chambered FN M-13, which replaced the 9mm SIG-Sauer M11 in 2009:

However, Special Forces operators can purchase their own personal sidearms, with many opting for 1911-style pistols:

in b4 "SIDEARMS ARE A WASTE OF SPACE"

The GWO gives its soldiers a choice between the MI-P57, a selective-fire 5.7x28mm machine pistol, and the MI-P45, a .45ACP handgun that has superior stopping power. The MI-P57 is more popular in the military, while the P45 is popular amongst the law enforcement community.

Officers can get their own personalized revolvers, usually MI-R357s (.357 Magnum) or MI-R44 (.44 Magnum.)

Pistols are reserved for cavalrymen and officers and the heavy pistol are only handed to the strongest and biggest of them so it is far from everyone that use the heavy KVP as anything else would be silly.

The M91 Blaster pistol, used by regular infantry:

Image

And the M41 blaster pistol, because of its lighter weight than the 91, it's issued to Special Forces, officers, and tank crews:

Image

Of course, many soldiers, marines, pilots, sailors, officers, special forces operatives, secret agents, and vehicle crews wield old pistols from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. Among the most popular is the vaunted M1911:

FACTBOOK | OPEN AN EMBASSY

"If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself."

despite looking dull and un-clean, it is extremely durable in many situations and can be mass produced easily, thus enhancing quantity however lowering quality. better sidearms are used for officers.

Double action .357 revolvers for marksmen and over-under pistol-shotguns for everyone else.

Why bother making something easy to use if you're taking away it's effectiveness? Just make it harder to handle and train your soldiers better.

because i do train my soldiers better, troops rarely use the pistols. hell if they are left with only their sidearm, they'll either suicide bomb themselves or shoot themselves to not fall into the hands of the enemy. the guns are pretty strong, they just aren't so accurate.

Image

they can handle heavy weapons, that's good enough, you don't need to train a lot of your troops to be expert pistol-men when they're already proficient with rifles.

Unlike YellowApple's primary weaponry, sidearms are much less regulated and standardized in YellowApple's three military branches. Rather, a member of YellowApple's armed forces is permitted to bring any sidearm of his/her choosing.

Image
Mateba Autorevolver, reverse-engineered and rechambered to support the .50 S&W Magnum. One of the more popular sidearms today.

Image
Desert Eagle, a favorite among officers

Image
Glock 17 Tactical, reverse-engineered and rebranded as the LX-18 Tactical Pistol. Among the lowest-caliber weapons widely used in YellowApple (few current weapons, with the exception of the Morita MK1 rifle, are chambered to anything smaller than .45 caliber)
