The Rjinders Stormkarabyn 70 (Sk 70) is an assault rifle designed by Karl Rjinders of the Holy Tiperyn Realm. It served as Tiperyn's primary service rifle from 1970 to 2005, until it was replaced by the modernized Sk 70b. The Sk 70 had an overall length of 976 mm (38.4") and weighed approximately 4.1 kg (9.0 lbs).

It chambered 6.5x40mm - the standard North-South Concordant assault rifle cartridge replacing 6.5x55mm as the standard - and fired from a closed bolt. The Sk 70 operated via a roller-delayed blowback system that had been pioneered in the 1940s. It had a reciprocating charging handle, allowing it to be used as a forward assist in the case of a failure to feed. Its rotating diopter sights had settings ranged for 200, 300, 400 and 600 meters - a design feature borrowed from Koryeo gun designers.

It fed principally from 30-round detachable magazines, although 20-round and 40-round magazines are also available. It featured a double-crescent trigger with a two-stage fire select feature. Depressing the top edge of the trigger yielded semi-automatic fire, while the bottom edge provided full-automatic fire. While more mechanically complex than other fire select systems, the Ministry of the Sword favored it as it was familiar to Tiperyn troops - introduced with the Stg 56 - was ambidextrous, easily manipulated in low-light conditions and allowed for a fast and intuitive swap from semi-automatic to full-automatic fire. Further, it featured a cross-bolt safety easily accessible above the shooter's thumb.

The Sk 70 is a veteran of 35 years of prolonged conflicts involving Tiperyn troops - primarily in Naseristan. It was first introduced in 1970 shortly after Tiperyn and Koryeo co-developed the 6.5x40mm cartridge - essentially a shortened 6.5x55mm cartridge - and replaced the Stoarmgewear 56 as Tiperyn's primary service rifle. Its derivatives remain as standard Tiperyn service weapons to this day. The current export cost for the Sk 70 is $520 per unit.

The Stiener Stoarmkarabyn 61 (Sk 61) is an assault rifle and a clone of the Brigantic M16 manufactured and marketed for export.

The Sk 61 chambers 5.56x45mm (6.5x40mm and 6.5x39mm versions are available) and operates via a pseudo-direct impingement gas operation where propellant gases are siphoned from the barrel and strike a small piston embedded in the bolt carrier. Upon firing, the gases force the bolt carrier back, allowing the rifle to extract the spent cartridge and cycle a new round. The action locks via a rotating bolt, allowing chamber pressure to drop to safe levels before extraction.

The Sk 61 is a relatively light rifle of a primarily aluminium and polymer construction at approximately 3.4 kg. Its charging handle is top-mounted within the carrying handle. Although it is non-reciprocating during normal operation, the operator may flip a lever that slaves the charging handle directly to the bolt. This allows it to be used as a forward assist to push a cartridge into battery in an emergency situation.

The Sk 61's controls are ambidextrous, with the fire selector and magazine release being easily accessible from either side. Further, it features a brass deflector aft of the ejection port to deflect spent casings away from the faces of left-handed shooters. The barrel is ridged to allow for the use of barrel-mounted rifle grenades.

The Sk 61 has done moderately well as an export rifle, although it was never formally adopted into Tiperyn military service. It has a long history of serving militaries, law enforcement and civilians across Anterra; a history that is likely to continue through the next century. The current export cost for the Sk 61 is $650 per unit.

Type: Assault Rifle
Action: Direct-Impingement Gas Operation
Cartridge: 5.56x45mm NATO
Muzzle Velocity: 950 m/s
Effective Firing Range: 600 m (1969 ft)
Feed: 20, 25 or 30-round detachable magazines; accepts STANAG/PMAG magazines

The Rjinders Stoarmgewear 56 (Stg 56) was an battle rifle designed by Karl Rjinders of the Holy Tiperyn Realm. It served as Tiperyn's primary service rifle from 1956 to 1970 until it was replaced by the Stoarmkarabyn 70 chambered in an intermediate cartridge. The Stg 56 had an overall length of 1,090 mm (42.9") and weighed approximately 4.4 kg (9.7 lbs).

The Sk 70 operated via a roller-delayed blowback system that had been pioneered by Tiperyn in the 1940s. It chambered 6.5x55mm, the standard rifle cartridge of Tiperyn and Koryeo at the time. The Stg 56 featured a double-crescent trigger that acted as a two-stage fire selector, with the top crescent firing semi-automatic and the bottom trigger firing full-automatic. Although technically complicated, Tiperyn opted for this system so soldiers could quickly switch between semi-automatic and full-automatic fire without having to take their finger off the trigger. This system was carried over to the later Sk 70.

The Stg 56 was issued in time to see combat in the later stages of the Kesh War (1949-1959) with Tiperyn troops fighting in what is now Naseristan. It remains the standard service rifle of Royal Naseri Army troops today and is often issued to reserve and paramilitary troops in Tiperyn. The current export cost for the Stg 56 is $450 per unit.

The Ameda Stoarmgewear 53 (Stg 53) was a bullpup battle rifle design designed by Tiperyn firearms designer Jelte Ameda in the early 1950s. The Stg 53 was a joint project between the Tiperyn and Koryeo defense industries to design a universal battle rifle for the North-South Concordant. It saw service with Tiperyn at the height of the Kesh War (1949-1959) from 1953 to 1961, until fully replaced by the Stg 56. It remains in service with the Koryeo military today as the Type 51.

The Stg 53 chambers 6.5x55mm - the standard North-South Concordant cartridge at the time - and operates via a direct-gas impingement system by which propellant is siphoned from the barrel and directly cycles the bolt carrier. It was a semi-automatic design and featured a crossbolt safety near the shooter's thumb. The Stg 53 was shorter than most of its contemporaries due to its bullpup configuration at an overall length of 858 mm (33.8").

Although a mainstay of Koryeo to today, it saw a relatively short time in Tiperyn service due to a preference towards conventional rifle layouts from the Tiperyn Realm Defence ordnance board and a desire to adopt a select-fire design. The Stg 53 sees limited service, primarily with law enforcement and paramilitary forces, in Tiperyn today. The current export cost for the Stg 53 is $160 per unit.

The Stiener Masinegewear 65 (Mg 65) is a squad automatic weapon and light machine gun converted from the Stiener Stoarmkarabyn 61 (Sk 61). It is intended to fill the role of automatic rifle at the fireteam or squad-level, providing squad leaders with a higher volume of fire than achievable by rifleman but more maneuverability than a general-purpose machine gunner.

It chambers 5.56x45mm - although 6.5mm Grendel and 6.5x40mm variants are available - and fires from the open bolt in full-automatic mode and the closed bolt in semi-automatic mode. The original top-mounted carrying handle and sights were replaced with a swivelling carrying handle mounted on the left side and folding sights. The Mg 65 features a range adjustable rear diopter sight, ranged for 300 meters to 800 meters, replacing the windage adjustable aperture sight of the Sk 61.

Further, the top mounted charging handle was replaced with a non-reciprocating charging handle mounted at the rear of the receiver. Although the Mg 65 lacks any forward assist capability, the change was judged to be acceptable to save weight and due to the fact that the Mg 65 would be fired primarily from the open bolt.

The Mg 65 features a longer and heavier barrel than the original Sk 61 and a front-folding bipod. It may feed from various STANAG magazines, but is capable of fitting proprietary 42-round magazines for the squad-automatic weapon role (pictured).

The Mg 65 was intended to easily fill the role of squad automatic weapon for regular infantry and paratroopers. A number of its updates were made to cutdown on weight, resulting in only a 300 gram weight increase overall even with the larger barrel. The removal of the fixed carrying handle and top-mounted charging handle was intended to reduce its overall profile.

The current export cost for the Mg 65 is $850 per unit.

Type: Squad Automatic Weapon
Action: Direct Impingement Gas Operation
Cartridge: 5.56x45mm
Muzzle Velocity: 990 m/s
Effective Firing Range: 600 m (1,969 ft)
Feed: 20, 30 and 42-round detachable magazines; accepts STANAG/PMAG magazines
Sights: Folding Adjustable Diopter Rear Sight, Flip-Up Front Sight Post

The Masinepistoal 84 (Mp 84) is a submachine gun designed by the Koryeo State Factory and produced domestically in Tiperyn by the Armstrong Gun Works. The service weapon and export variants differ only in chambering, 7.64×20mm and 9×19mm respectively, with the majority of details covered in this article being identical between the two.

The Type 84 SMG was designed between 1982 and 1983 before being adopted in 1984. It was developed as a private project by workers at the State Factory to create an improved replacement of the then standard Z64 submachine gun. Based upon recommendations from soldiers in the field, the open bolt blowback action was replaced with a roller delayed action that fired from a closed bolt in an effort to both improve accuracy and to keep the firearm better sealed from ingress of dirt and other debris while in the field.

Specifically, the roller delayed action was chosen based on the engineers experience with the new Type 80 assault rifle (or assault submachine gun as it is also known) and the Tiperyn Stoarmkarabyn 70 (Sk.70) series, which were also manufactured and worked upon in house. Intended mostly for vehicle crews, and as a secondary weapon for dismounted troops with heavier weapons. The threaded barrel also does not protrude from the front of the firearm for the same reason. To prevent the shooter from accidentally placing their fingers over the barrel a foregrip with an overhang was chosen over other more esoteric designs.

The foregrip is the same shape as the pistol grip and is hollow, with a small cleaning kit stored inside. Positioning the magazine in front of the pistol grip, rather than within the pistol grip, was a deliberate decision, as it allowed for a more ergonomic grip for the typically smaller than average Pradarian soldier. The fire selector is a standard 3-position affair, with safe, semi-automatic and full-automatic firing modes. Other combinations are available for export, such as a safe/semi-automatic only group for police and law enforcement (also used by Pradarian security police) and a 4-position selector with 2- or 3- round burst modes by request.

The weapon is fully ambidextrous without modification and ejects from the right hand side. Sights are a typical rear diopter drum, and will be familiar to anyone used to Sk 70 or G3 rifles. A forward assist is located on the right hand side of the submachine gun to allow for silent bolt closures if required, though it is unclear how useful such a feature is in its typical usage. Finally, a gas regulator switch is provided ahead of the magazine for give the operator the ability to reduce the muzzle velocity of supersonic rounds to subsonic speeds (from 380 m/s to 330 m/s at sea level for standard 9x19mm ammunition), eliminating the need to supply special subsonic ammunition. When paired with a suppressor, this reduces the Mp 84's auditory profile significantly and has applications with law enforcement and special forces.

The current export cost for the Mp 84 is $850 per unit.
Type: Submachine Gun
Action: Roller-Delayed Blowback
Cartridge: 9x19mm

The Strider Pistoal 15 (P 15) is a semi-automatic pistol originally designed in 1915 by Mark Strider and currently produced by Allerton Gunsmiths in northern Tiperyn. It originally chambered 7.64x20mm - the standard North-South Concordant pistol cartridge - but export versions chambering 9x19mm and .45 ACP are also available.

The P 15 was the first semi-automatic pistol to be universally adopted by Tiperyn, replacing a number of service revolvers and early semi-automatic pistols issued in limited numbers. The P 15 operated via a short-recoil rotating barrel action, chosen over competing tilting-barrel and toggle delayed blowback designs due to its robustness, accuracy concerns with tilting-barrel designs and the complexity of the toggle delayed blowback action at the time.

The P 15 was the first standard issue firearm in the Tiperyn arsenal to chamber the newly adopted 7.64x20mm cartridge. It has an effective firing range of 75 meters (246 feet) and feeds from a 9-round detachable magazine. The 9x19mm and .45 ACP export variants feed from 8-round and 7-round single stack magazines respectively. Standard 7.64x20mm, 9x19mm and .45 ACP suppressor units may be affixed to the threaded barrel of the P 15 (export version).

The pistol features a lever safety and decocker on the left side of the slide. Civil and law enforcement export versions also feature a grip safety.

The P 15 is a veteran of Anterra's most significant conflicts - the Great War (1915-1925) and Kesh War (1949-1959) - as well as over 50 years of prolonged civil conflict in Naseristan. Although replaced in 2012 by the Ridder P 12 as Tiperyn's standard service pistol, it remains in service with regular army forces, paramilitary and law enforcement. The current export cost for the P 15 is $110 per unit.

Type: Semi-Automatic Pistol
Action: Short-Recoil, Rotating Bolt
Cartridge: 7.64x30mm, 9x19mm Parabellum, .45 ACP
Muzzle Velocity: 320 m/s (7.64mm), 381 m/s (9mm), 255 m/s (.45)
Effective Firing Range: 74 m (246 ft)
Feed: Detachable Magazine; 9 rounds (7.64mm), 8 rounds (9mm), 7 rounds (.45)
Sights: Notch Rear, Blade Front

Length: 225 mm (8.9")
Barrel Length: 130 mm (5.1")
Weight: 1.1 kg (2.4 lbs)

The Jachthelikopter Panter is a helicopter gunship, attack helicopter and troop transport co-developed by Koryeo and Tiperyn in the early 1980s and introduced in 1982. The Panter was developed as an armored and armed alternative to the light utility helicopters that were common in Tiperyn air assault units.

In addition to being able to transport 9 troops into battle, the Panter's armament of four wing-mounted hardpoints and one nose-mounted 35mm autocannon gave it the ability to act as:
  1. Escort utility and cargo helicopters that were often only armed with two to three heavy machine guns.
  2. Immediately provide close air support capability to air assault infantry.
  3. Act independently of the infantry component and seek out and destroy the enemy.

Tiperyn forces have put its armament to use, taking advantage of fire-and-forget air-to-ground missiles to peak above hilltops and ridgelines in southern Naseristan, engage the enemy from distance and crest back below the horizon before the enemy knows they were under attack. In addition to a robust air-to-ground capability, able to accept a number of weapon systems including a variety of air-to-ground missiles, rocket pods and anti-radiation missiles, the Panter offers a limited anti-helicopter capability through the mounting of air-to-air missiles.

The Panter's armor is capable of defeating rounds of up to 15mm from all angles - the standard heavy machine gun round of the North-South Concordant - while some key areas around the cockpit and infantry bay are able to defeat 20mm cannon shells.

It is powered by two turboshaft engines driving a four-blade main rotor and fantail. Its powerplant allows it to achieve speeds of up to 345 km/h at ground level. Further, in its role as an armed utility helicopter, the Panter is able to slingload 3,000 kg (6,614 lbs) of cargo during flight. Its estimated range is 500 km without load.

The Panter is the newest and likely deadliest helicopter in the Tiperyn Royal Guard and Royal Armada Marine Corps' arsenal. It is the veteran of a prolonged civil conflict in Naseristan, proving lethal in the mountainous terrain of the nation where air assault troops are most frequently deployed.

The current export cost for the Jachthelikopter Panter is $14.6 million per unit.

The Wexford Gewear 1905/25 (G 05/25) was a bolt-action rifle designed as a modernization of the original Gewear 1905 designed by Charles Wexford and fielded as the primary service rifle of Tiperyn from 1926 to 1940.

The G 05/25 was introduced in the last year of the Grand Campaigns (1915-1925) as the pinnacle of the Gewear 1905 line of rifles. It chambered 6.5x55mm - renowned for its ballistic characteristics - loaded via 7-round chargers pre-loaded at the factory into a 7-round fixed internal magazine. Its adjustable aperture sight mounted to the rear of the action set it apart from most of its contemporaries that still uses tangent or ladder sights mounted in front of the action. This both gave the shooter an excellent sight picture, but a long sight radius, increasing accuracy.

The G 05/25's cocking piece doubled as a decocker. Further, it was capable of mounting left-offset telescopic optics via an easily installed rail mounting system on the left side the rifle.

The G 05/25 employed a "dog-legged" bolt handle to place the handle further back, making it more accessible and increasing the average shooter's cyclic rate without significantly redesigning the action. This, combined with the action being cock-on-close made it one of the most rapid firing bolt-action rifles of its day. It would only be usurped by the rise of semi-automatic rifles in the 1930s and would leave service after the first year of the Kesh War (1949-1959).

The current export cost for the G 05/25 is $50 per unit.

Type: Bolt-Action Rifle
Action: Bolt-Action
Cartridge: 6.5x55mm
Muzzle Velocity: 870 m/s
Effective Firing Range: 900 m (3,000 ft)
Feed: 7-round fixed internal magazine; loaded via 7-round chargers
Sights: Adjustable Aperture Rear Sight, Front Sight Post

Length: 1,090mm (42.9")
Barrel Length: 567 mm (22.3")
Weight: 3.85 kg (8.5 lbs)

The Pânserjochtfreau Pyton (Pjf Pyton) is a main-battle tank that was originally developed for the Tiperyn Realm Defence and introduced in 1972. Currently, the Pyton is the premiere armored fighting vehicle of Tiperyn, equipped by four of its 13 Realm Guard tank regiments and the majority of its Marine regiments. Although a second-generation main battle tank two major modernizations - one in the 1990s and one in 2014 - has brought the Pyton up to standards met by many of its contemporary third generation main battle tanks.

The Pyton's main armament is its 120mm smoothbore gun, replacing the previously rifled guns of Tiperyn's first- and early second-generation main battle tanks to accommodate the rising prevalence of armored-piercing fin-stabilized discarding sabot (APFSDS) shells and anti-tank guided missiles (ATGM). Depending on the shell, the Pyton can read out and touch targets up to 4.2 kilometers away. However, when armed with ATGMs, the Pyton's effective firing range is extended to 8 kilometers. The Pyton can store 41 shells in its magazine.

When firing 120mm APFSDS tungsten perpetrator, the Pyton can achieve penetration of up to 800 mm of steel rolled homogenous armor out to 2 kilometers. For comparison, the composite armor hull of the M1A1 Abrams is approximately equivalent to 550-650 mm RHA against kinetic projectiles, while its turret is approximately equivalent to 800-900 mm RHA.

Additionally, the Pyton is armed with a coaxial 15 mm heavy machine gun to the right of the main gun, able to be used as an anti-personnel and anti-materiel weapon, or to help range the main gun. The Pyton's hatches feature mounting points for additional machine guns. In Tiperyn service, one 15 mm heavy machine gun and one 6.5x55mm general-purpose machine gun are often mounted. Depending on the unit, a number of Realm Guard tank battalions have even equipped their tanks with a 25 mm autocannon controlled from within the tank by the tank commander.

During initial production, the Pyton was outfitted with space steel RHA armor. Today, the most recent developments of the Pyton are protected by composite armor consisting of titanium, tungsten, hardened steel and ceramic. Additionally, the crew compartment is lined with a 200 mm layer of polythene and is air tight with a robust air filtration system to protect against nuclear, biological and chemical threats. Additionally, in order to prevent an explosion venting into the crew compartment in the event the its ammo storage is hit, the Pyton's magazine is isolated from the crew via an automatic and armored sliding door that remains closed when crew are not retrieving shells. If hit, specially designed "blow out" doors located at the top of the magazine will give way, redirecting the pressure away from the crew.

Powered by a twin-turbo diesel engine generating some 1,500 horsepower, the Pyton is able to achieve 60 kph (37 mph) on-road and 50 kph (31 mph) off-road.

The Pyton has had a long history of service with the Tiperyn military, serving with distinction in high-intensity and low-intensity conflict throughout Naseristan's desert and mountainous terrain and balancing the firepower of its League of Free Nations rivals.

The current export cost for the Pânserjochtfreau Pyton is $5.25 million per unit.
