Section XI: Standard Allanean Military Artillery Rounds

Originally Designed by the Maccabees Player


TIR.11.155 HE Round
Description: The TIR.11.155 High Explosive shell is merely an empty casting full of Octagen using a small brazen fuse, although there have been claims that the Ejermacht has issued the same round without the fuze, dispersing it randomly within stockpiles of the round; the idea is to defeat shortstop equipped ordnance. The round itself is rocket assisted, and out of the muzzle of the Corbulo has an extremely amazing range.
Range: 80kms [standard]; 30kms [howitzer]; 100kms [Corbulo]
Velocity: Mach 4-6
Warhead: High Explosive
Guidance: Inertial and GPS
Replacement Cost: 7,000 USD
Production Rights Cost: 25 Million USD



TIR.76.155 ER DPICM Round
Description: The TIR.76 Extended Range Dual Purpose Improved Conventional Munition is the long range dispenser artillery round of the Ejermacht, able to carry up to seventy-two small anti-armor/personnel grenade submunitions. The round is capable of successfully engaging unarmored vehicles, soft skinned vehicles and personnel, at extremely long ranges, which amount to some forty kilometers for a howitzer and around eighty kilometers to one hundred kilometers for the advance field artillery system Corbulo. The round is designed with GPS and inertial guidance, and's burst radius has been reduced to ten meters. The round has also been improved upon the XM982 design, incorporated rocket assistance. The anti-armour bomblets can effectively penetrate up to 130mm worth of armour.
Range: 40kms [Howitzer]; 90kms [Field Gun]; 120kms [Field Gun ETC/EM assisted]
Velocity: Mach 4 to Mach 7
Warhead: 72 Anti-Armor or Anti-Personnel Grenade Submunitions
Fire Capabilities: Non Line of Site; Fire and Forget
Guidance: GPS, Inertial, Millimeter Wave
Replacement Cost: 12,000 USD
Production Rights: 40 Million USD



TIR.21.155 SADARM Round
Description: This Sense and Destroy Armor Munition is an extended program to the M898 munition of the US Army. The round carries a host of anti-armor submunitions that release themselves on top of enemy light armoured vehicles, penetrating the top armour. How it works is that the round uses a parachute like device to slowly fall over the target and at a certain height, dictated by a range of sensors, the round divides into two submunition penetrators that use their own sensors to search and destroy for enemy vehicles. When the target is located the submunition fires an explosively formed penetrator [EFP] at it. Under the best circumstances the TIR.21.155 SADARM has been able to destroy two vehicles with one round.
Range: 35kms [howitzer]; 50kms [artillery]; 80kms [EM or ETC artillery]
Velocity: Mach 4-7; terminal varies
Warhead: Anti-armour submunitions
Guidance: Inertial, GPS and Millimeter Wave
Replacement Cost: 12,000 USD
Production Rights Cost: 40 Million USD



TIR.33.155 TCR Round
Description: This Trajectory Correctable Munition is designed to be a cross between the SADARM and the DPICM munitions, although the guidance is a bit different, although more accurate. The round is designed to be modular, allowing any country to drop either the DPICM or SADARM rounds and just use this one, producing them to fit either role - but the casting itself would be the same, making the round consequently much cheaper to design, especially if a country designs both. At some point it is hoped that the Ejermacht will just begin to order variants of the TIR.33.155 instead of using both the TIR.21.155 and the TIR.76.155. The round is also wooden requiring absolutely no user maintenance, making them cheaper in that respect as well, with a storage life of twenty years.
Range: 37kms [howitzer]; 60 kms [artillery]; 100 kms [ETC/EM artillery]
Velocity: Mach 2-7 depending on variant
Warhead: HE, SADARM, DPICM
Guidance: GPS, INS, Millimeter Wave, Projectile Tracking System, Terminal Homing, Counter Radar and UAV directed [optional].
Replacement Cost: 9,000 USD
Production Rights Cost: 50 Million USD



TIR.217.155 HD Round
Description: The TIR.217.155 HD shel, just like the TIR.11.155 HE round,l is merely an empty casting full of HD blister gas using a small brazen fuse, although there have been claims that the Ejermacht has issued the same round without the fuze, dispersing it randomly within stockpiles of the round; the idea is to defeat shortstop equipped ordnance. The round itself is rocket assisted, and out of the muzzle of the Corbulo has an extremely amazing range.
Range: 80kms [standard]; 30kms [howitzer]; 100kms [Corbulo]
Velocity: Mach 4-6
Warhead: Blister Gas
Guidance: INS, GPS
Replacement Cost: 7,500 USD
Production Rights Cost: 20 Million USD

TIR.17.155 RAAM Round
Description: The TIR.17 Remote Anti-Armor Munition is designed to be able to carry anti-armor mine munitions far distances, allowing to set up remote mine fields within minutes, especially in the face of an enemy advance. The round, if produced by Kriegzimmer, carries a single type of mine, set off through sensors which detail pressure and proximity, being quite accurate, and rather hard to see and deactivate in time. They are not designed to destroy tanks but rather blow off parts of the tracks, allowing further artillery and other strikes to deal with the now stopped armour. The rounds first battle testing grounds were at Ruska against Havenite [SafeHaven2] armour, and proved to be quite successful. The mine has a 48 hour lifespan.
Range: 30 to 70 kilometers
Velocity: Mach 2 to Mach 5
Warhead: Submunitions; 60 anti-tank mines
Guidance: Inertial and GPS
Replacement Cost: 8,000 USD
Production Rights Cost: 30 Million USD


TIR.81.155 ADAM Round
Description: The TIR.81 Area Denial Anti-personnel Mine works just like the TIR.17 RAAM mine, and is in fact the same casting as the TIR.17, using modular parts, only the submunitions are exchanged with anti-personnel mines. The TIR.81 is most of the time used hand in hand with the TIR.17s, providing anti-personnel and anti-tank mine fields against fast advancing armies, and has the distinct possibilities of slowing advances down. The mine has a life span, just like the mine of its TIR.17 counterpart, of 48 hours.
Range: 30 to 80 kilometers
Velocity: Mach 2 to 5
Warhead: Submuntions; 80 anti-personnel mines
Guidance: Inertial and GPS
Replacement Cost: 8,000 USD
Production Rights Cost: 30 Million USD


TIR.31.155 AFAP Round
Description: The TIR.31 is a nuclear tipped Artillery-Fired Atomic Projectile, with rocket assist, offering it an excellent range. It's a mini tactical nuclear weapon, designed to destroy large amounts of enemy personnel and vehicles within single strikes. The shell has never been used by the Empire's forces, although it is always stockpiled as a possibility. In fact, official numbers on stockpiles don't exist, but it's been estimated that the Empire holds around two hundred to three hundreds of these types of rounds on reserve and that they are rushed over to areas of high priority in case the war becomes a nuclear war. The nuclear warhead also use the effect of extended radiation [ER] to increase the killing power of the shell.
Range: 80 Kilometers
Velocity: Mach 6
Warhead: Nuclear [small]
Guidance: Inertial, GPS, Millimeter Wave
Replacement Cost: 275,000 USD
Production Rights Cost: 300 Million USD

Firespitter factory custom handgun
Image


Throughout its history, Allanean Arms had focused on supplying the civilian market – with firearms, cars, portable homes and other objects of their desire. It controls in full 25% of the Allanean automotive market, 10% of the civilian firearms market, as well as large shares other civilian markets. And so it is natural that many of the company's designs are leveled at civilian firearm consumers.

Such is the Firespitter competition pistol. Built initially on the 1911 frame, it is plated with 24karat gold, designed to look like a crouching dragon. But the gold plating on the pistol is only the beginning. The trigger group, barrel, and sights are manufacture in a precision process similar to that used in the pistols deployed with the Allanean Olympic Rapid Fire pistol team.

The trigger has a 3.5-pound pull weight without creep or overtravel, and the pistol is equipped with an ambidextrous grip safety. The sights are fully adjustable. With a low profile, beveled corners and edges, and serrated blade, they work just as well for defensive carry as they do at the range – though we note that if you order a Firespitter to carry in self-defense, you should carry it openly and let people marvel at the excellent finish.

The Firespitter is available to be ordered by phone or Internet or purchased at gun stores throughout the United States of Allanea. Recommended retail price is $3000.

Weight: 2.5 lb
Length: 8.25 in
Barrel length: 5.1
Cartridge: .45 ACP, 9mm, others
Magazine capacity: 7-12
Price: $2500 at wholesale

”Desert Seagull” Mark II Semiautomatic Handgun

In late 2006, the military of the United States of Allanea was seeking a new handgun model to replace the aging Desert Eagle Mark XIX series of semiautomatic pistols. While the old Magnum Research construct provided the Allanean military with excellent stopping power, the United States military has not been satisified with the handgun especially in terms of the low ammunition capacity it provided, and it's extremely heavy weight.

The first modification of the Seagull (so named as a designer in-joke at Allanean Arms, Incorporated) has failed the Joint Forces Procurement test, as it broke down after approximately 10,000 rounds have been fired through it. The Corporation had then tried to market it to the civilian market in Allanea, but failed miserably. As such, work began on the Desert Seagull, Mark II, Semiautomatic handgun – and here it now is before you.

The Desert Seagull is essentially an oxymoron in terms of handgun enthusiasts – it's a handgun in the .50AE caliber, but unlike the original Desert Eagle, it is designed for military use and self-defense in mind where the Desert Eagle was originally designed for hunting and long-range pistol competition shooting – something to which such high-caliber pistols are usually relegated in the opinion of common sense gun experts. This is precisely why it is called the Desert Seagull.

But of course, Allaneans don't really care about the so-called common sense of 'gun experts' – especially foreign ones. As they have already been using the Desert Eagle as a military handgun (though in practice the majority of military units deploy a variety of .45 pistols, mostly varieties of the venrable 1911) – the Allaneans were quite willing to now switch their entire military to what the Rejistanians would call an entirely alhanija'het handgun.

And so was born the Desert Seagull.

Action:

Like it's forefather, the Desert Seagull is essentially a gas-operated pistol. However, replacing the Desert Eagle's complex gas-operating system - wherein gases were diverted from the chamber and forward down a gas tube and almost down to the very tip of the barrel, where they would then be diverted into a small chamber whereby pressure would be enacted to move back the slide and reload the gun – the Desert Seagull simply enacts a system similar to that on a standard rifle, whereby gases are merely diverted from the barrel and into a pressure chamber where they would move back the slide similarly to an AK-47's gas-piston system. This modification was carried out in order to increase reliability of the gun, an object that seems to have been accomplished fairly well by Allanean Arms, Incorporated.

Frame:

The first thing that one would notice when heaving the Seagull in hand is that it's lighter then what you would expect a handgun of this type to be. And indeed, the outer frame of the pistol had not been made out of metal, but out of polymer plastic similar to that on the Glock and USP series of handguns. The rationale behind that is fairly obvious – soldiers need to carry lighter guns. However, it has to be added that this has an obvious disadvantage – it increases recoil. As one would assume, the designers at Allanean Arms, Incorporated wished to counteract that as much as possible -if only to make it easier and cheaper to train soldiers and officers in the use of the Seagull.

And indeed, they have come up with a solution. Not only have they used a gas-operated action (like the original Eagle) to reduce the recoil of the .50AE cartridge, but they have done more - ensuring that the Desert Seagull now comes stock with recoil-absorbing grips similar the famous Pachmayr recoil absorbing pistol grips from the 20th and early 21st century. Combined with the lower-recoil gas operation system, they have actually made recoil with the Seagull vaguely sustainable!

Barrel:

The barrel, 150mm long, is a special baby of Allanean Arms, Incorporated. Manufactured in the Corporation's new factories in Non-Earth Kentucky, the barrel is quite different from its older sister the Desert Eagle Barel. Not only is it fully-polygonal, but it's also computer-manufactured to ultra-low tolerances. It is suspected that it's the price of the barrel that comprises 50% of the price of the Seagull pistol.

The more interesting bit of the barrel is the end – that's the more interesting bit of any handgun barrel, but that of the DS is perhaps more interesting then those of most such handguns. While normally, it is covered by the slanted end – which is designed to imitate the Desert Eagle Mark XIX pistol, once you disassemble the gun, you will discover a most wonderful quality – the barrel is threaded, just like the barrel of a standard-issue military rifle. This is so you could... that's right, mount accessories on it!

And what are those accessories? Well, Allanean Arms had been nice for my readers, and put out a series of features for the serious Desert Seagull fan. Here they be listed:

DS-M1S – this is indeed a Desert Seagull Mark One Suppressor. As all of those devices, it reduces the audible sound and visible flash of the handgun, and is designed specifically for use with threaded barrel .50AE handguns – which is, with the only such handgun in existence, the Desert Seagull. It is interesting that it has a decorative slanted end, like the barrel tip of the original Desert Seagull. This means that once you screw your DS pistol together, it will essentially look like you somehow simply constructed a longer barrel frame.

DS-M1FS – this is a Flash Suppressor. Unlike the device above, it suppresses merely the flash of the .50 Action Express caliber, but looks visually almost the same when mounted. This may be desirable when you do not to deal with the accuracy loss that is often associated with sound suppressors. It's cheaper, too.

DS-M1RB – this does just the reverse of a flash suppressor – and looks like you've screwed on a longer barrel and made ports on it's upper side. That's because it is, essentially a set of attachable barrel ports – a recoil brake. So your muzzle flash will be transcending from really big to really huge, but at least you'll have less recoil. And with the Desert Seagull, that's a very good thing.

Trigger:

The trigger on the Desert Seagull... well, let's put it this way. The Desert Eagle Mark XIX has been designed as a single-action sporting handgun. The fine people at Allanean Arms have kept true to that heritage, and made the trigger lighter. Much lighter.

This is, in effect, what people refer to as a hair-thin trigger when they are not in Allanea. In Allanea we call this a good trigger, and then grumble and move on when foreigners call us mad. As for those who really care for the number, it's below 1 lb.. Beat that.*

Safety:

The Desert Seagull does not, unlike most military handguns, sport an external safety. An internal hammer safety exists, however, on the Seagull, to prevent it from being fired – except when the trigger is pressed. Combined with what we already know about the Desert Seagull trigger, this is a powerful argument from keeping your finger on the trigger until you make the conscious decision to fire – which, in the words of Colonel Morrison, of the Allanean Special Forces, is what you're supposed to be doing anyway.

Sights:

The Seagull arrives from the factory equipped with a pair of ordinary pistol sights. Well, they'd be ordinary, but they are sitting on a Picatinny-type rail – which means you can take them down at any time, and replace them with a sight system of your choice – for example, an optical scope. They also have tritium inserts – and that means you can use them at night.

But that is not all. The handgun is equipped by not one – but four Picatinny rails, on the bottom, top (where sights sit), and sides of the barrel. In the words of Kevin Nivensky, Allanean Arms immortal CEO, 'and you're perfectly free to mount a laser designator on any of them. Fact is, we'll provide you with one.'

As indeed they do. Allanean Arms, Incorporated is already marketing a laser designator for the Seagull, one that is pre-sighted for use with the Seagull and standard .50AE rounds. It points within 1 inch of the point of aim at 50 feet.

Magazines:

Thought had been put into these objects of art, as well. While the DS accepts typical Desert Eagle pistol magazine, those for the DS are longer, angrier bastards, designed to hold a full ten .50 Action Express rounds. Yes, they poke out of the grip a bit. On the other hand, they are polymer made, and weigh in fact 50 grams less then a Desert Eagle magazine, loaded.

Platform-Based Design:

Just like its forefather the Desert Eagle, the Seagull can be converted to a different caliber by simply replacing the barrel, bolt, and magazine with one of the requisite caliber. While they are not out on the market yet, Allanean Arms is rumored to be planning variants in .44 Mag, .41 Mag, .357, and some other calibers. Kevin Nivensky, CEO of Allanean Arms, refused to comment.

Holster:

Allanean Arms Corporation would not be its usual excellent self if it didn't supply the handgun stock with an excellent leather holster. It is not, however, your daddy's concealed carry holster – mostly because it's a military gun after all, and besides concealed carry went out of fashion decades ago in Allanea. This, ladies and gentlemen, is an excellent cross-draw shoulder holster. It's made in Nmgweni, where laborers are paid 2 Menelmacari Credits per hours, but it still is an excellent thing, and should command a great price in and of itself – as we predict it will at gun shows in a decade or so.

The holster has, of course, most excellent retention capability – even though it has no retention strips, it performs by having the gun held in by retention padding inside the holster, so it cannot be dislodged by performing strenuous activity – such as strangling a communist guerrilla with your bare hands – with your gun on. There's only one way to dislodge it, and that's actually deliberately draw the pistol.

As Allanea reduced the age of maturity to 16 during an unprecedented Congress vote during the Fourth Edolian War (some say, in order to legalize the use of the Boy Scout Corps of Allanea in war), some interestng economic results have occurred. One of them is the Teen Dream 200 automatic pistol, which foreign commentators have dubbed: “a product of fusion of Allanean obsession with firepower and teenage bad taste.”

The TD-2000 is a polymer framed semiautomatic 9-mm firearm, usually seen worn by high-school students. (Carrying a weapon on the premises of an Allanean public school is legal for any citizen above the age of maturity –which is 16, as we stated above). In an attempt to appeal to the younger generation, Allanean Arms, Incorporated, has offered the TD-2000 in a variety of colours and patterns. The most popular pattern is a ‘jeans’ coloured print, which is so realistic it can be mistaken for actual jeans cloth on casual observation.

The QSZ-94 service pistol (Chinese: 94式手槍; pinyin: jiǔ sì shí Shoǔqiàng; literally 'Pistol Type 94') is a semi-automatic pistol designed by Rao Arms.

[Development and design]
The QSZ-94's development was first started circa 1993, as a project to design a domestic service pistol to replace the standard American M1991. Constructed of high-impact plastic grip, all-steel frame, slide and steel barrel, the QSZ-94 was primarily intended to be easy on the wrist. The shape of the QSZ-94 is intended to provide a smooth draw from anywhere on the body, since it is also intended to be used by intelligence forces or civilians, who would need to conceal the pistol in locations where skin and clothing could be torn by harsher angles. This was also the reason that the guttersnipe sight was chosen, since it would provide the least chance of snag of firearm sights (this also has a significant advantage in that it is reflexive to aim).

The QSZ-94 uses an internal striker, rather than an external hammer, with a white-marked striker tip that protrudes when the gun is cocked. The QSZ-94 uses tool-less disassembly, a de-cocking button and an ambidextrous magazine release. The sights are adjustable for elevation. There is an accessory rail included on the pistol, for use with laser sights or flashlights. The safety on the QSZ-94 functions as a firing pin lock and as a trigger lock. To minimize the chances of an accidental misfire, the QSZ-94 incorporates a further safety measure: when the striker is cocked, it engages an internal safety, which unless deactivated by pressing the trigger will block the chamber and keep the striker from hitting the primer. The QSZ-94 is normally a double-action-only pistol, but can be ordered in a version with only double-action initial. To unchamber a round without firing it, the operator presses the de-cocking button and runs the slide back, opening the chamber and ejecting the round. The operator will then need to press the de-cocking button once more.

The QSZ-94 is available in two versions: one is chambered for the 9 x 19mm Luger-Parabellum ammunition (QSZ-94-9), and another is chambered for the Jeunese 10 mm armor-piercing ammunition (QSZ-94-10).

Upon the purchase of the Rao Arms Complex by the Kazansky Heavy Industries Corporation, the rifle was entered into export production by the Allaneans. Because KHI cooperates with Allanean Arms on export matters, KHI products can be ordered through the Allanean Arms storefront site.

RE: Purchase

We wish to purchase the following from you, for our special forces:
10x RoLu.21.A Boneharvester Attack Helicopter
10x RoLu-17 Galicia Attack Helicopter
10x F-17AL Arrowhawk multirole fighter
DPR = GF11 Archer Tactical Reconnaissance UAV
DPR= AA-13 Manhunter
DPR= GF15 Valkyrie Anti-Armour UCAV

DPR price were not supplied for the AA-13 and GF15, so we estimate $10 billion each.
We work out the price to be $27,660,000,000.
As this is the KSA, we are pulling funds from other areas. We wish to pay $9 billion upon approval, then the rest over the next 2 years. We hope this is acceptable

RE: Payment

That is understandable, we then wish to purchase 20 of the UCAVs for which there are no DPRs available

DISCLAIMER: This has been designed by The Northern Expanse. It is NOT my design. Do not, under any circumstances, copy this design ICLy, or ,worse yet, rip off the graphics OOCly. ICly, Allanean Arms produces these for re-export. I have the player's permission to do this. You are NOT allowed to copy these. DPRs will NOT be made available. Thank you and have a nice day.

Lee-Nordenfeldt Rifle No. 7 - 6.5x55mm

Cartridge: 6.5x55mm Mauser
Action: Gas operated, vertically locking lug.
Length: 1100 mm (43 in.)
Barrel: 610 mm (24 in.)
Weight: 4.3 kg, empty.
Magazine: 10, 20 round, detachable box, 45 detachable drum, 10 round integral drum (No.
73-4 only)
Production Cost: $00
Cost: $500

The Lee-Nordenfeldt No. 7 rifle started life as the manually-operated straight pull rifle No. 1 in 1896. The updated and modernized version of the No. 1, the No. 2 Mk. 3, served for well over 50 years with its original developers and users, The Northern Expanse and The Republic of Izistan. The L-N turned out to be both reliable and easy to use, disdaining the the clumsy, sensitive rotating
bolts of most other straight pull rifles. The straight back and forth action of the manual bolt gave the rifle a speed advantage over the contemporary manually rotating bolt action rifles while remaining simple.

However, it was found that in the face of modern machinegun fire, even this quick-to-work manual action simply was not enough and a program to find a replacement was established. Three methods of replacement were sought:

- Develop an indigenous semi-automatic rifle or find a civilian company with the right experience for this.

- Find a way to modify and update the current No. 2 service rifle through a reliable method of operation while retaining parts commonality.

- Purchase an existing design from a foreign manufacturer willing to license domestic production.

It was decided that the first option would require too long a period of time with war on the horizon and Izistan already embroiled in reclaiming its home territory from the barbarians that had forced them to flee centuries before while simultaneously becoming involved in the G'Topian Secession. The third option was avoided for some of these same reasons as well as not being an indigenous design. So, the second option was chosen since it was thought that the existing facilities could be used to produce this upgraded rifle. While the resulting rifle, the No. 7, outwardly shares many of the same facets as the older No. 2 series of rifles, internally it is much different. First and foremost a gas piston was added to the right side of the barrel. This placement was chosen so that the sight line of the rifle would not be raised significantly and weight of the gas system would be supported by the stock and only partially by the barrel. A top mounted gas piston would also have disallowed the use of charger feeding without interesting mechanical contortions to allow it. The bolt was lengthened and made more robust to remain reliable even under automatic fire. The receiver was redesigned to accommodate this new bolt and new magazines were manufactured with backward compatibility. Unfortunately, this necessary change resulted in the inability for parts to be interchanged aside from smaller parts even if it did result in a better rifle. Needless to say, the rifle went into production just in time to be issued to Expansite forces and some quantities being sent to the allied Izistani forces. Variants of the No. 7 have been developed over the years for different purposes but the rifle at its heart remains the same and harkens back to the older days of riflemen jerking their fouled bolts open by hand only to ram a fresh cartridge forward in the heat of battle.

---

The Lee-Nordenfeldt No. 7 rifle is a gas operated, semi-automatic or automatic magazine fed rifle. The sliding bolt has one large locking lug on the upper forward part that locks into a wide cut in the roof of the receiver just in front of the chamber. At the moment of firing, the striker is released and moves forward under the pressure of the striker spring, impacting the primer and firing the cartridge.. The slug speeds down the barrel passing the gas port in the right side of the barrel, this allows gas to escape into the forward part of the horizontal gas piston alongside the barrel. The piston is immediately forced to the rear compressing the return spring in the base of the piston tube; this action impinges on the bolt carrier drawing it rearward. A large claw machined into the bolt carrier engages the bottom of the spring-tensioned vertical locking lug rotating it downward and clear of the locking recess. A groove on the forward part of the lug engages the rim of the spent casing pulling it free from the chamber and holding it against the bolt face until it is ejected by the spring loaded ejector/bolt stop just rearward of the magazine in the floor of the receiver. At this point, the compressed main spring behind the piston moves forward pulling the bolt with it once more stripping a cartridge from the magazine and loading it into the chamber, ready for firing. In the same motion, the rear striker is cocked and held in place by the main sear until such a time as the trigger is pulled.

Feeding is accomplished from a durable, yet cheap, sheet steel detachable box magazine below the receiver and in front of the trigger guard. Each magazine holds twenty rounds of the standard issue cartridge but can be topped off at any time while in the rifle either through chargers of five rounds each or singly through manual loading. There is also a 45 round drum magazine available for squad automatic rifle roles. The safety for the rifle is located on the left side of the receiver just forward of the semi-pistol grip in an easy position for the thumb to find and operate even under stressful conditions. This also gives the rifleman a positive feel in the dark for the rifle's state of readiness as well as being quick to bring into action by pushing forward. An alternative trigger grouping allows for automatic fire using the lever as both a selector and safety which can be positioned in the traditional upward direction or downward in case of a pistol grip and stock being installed.

Sights are of the diopter type with two flip settings, one for low-light combat situations requiring quick shooting and one more precise for long range fire. The older ladder type sight has been replaced by one with a sliding base and adjustment available for windage via a small knob to the side. This sighting system has proven to be more durable than the older ladder type and less sensitive to fouling from the environment.

While each rifle's stock still consists of two pieces of the resilient sandalwood, more modern stock options are available and widely used in the form of a more straight-line butt and separate pistol grip allowing for better recoil control. These three piece stocks are usually made from durable polymer in black or grey colors. Provision for a sling and bayonet is made in the steel muzzle cap covering the head of the forestock making the rifle very durable for melee fighting and general use. Unusually, the rifle does away with the normal wooden upper handguard in preference for a ventilated heat shield of black-coated steel. As with the No. 2 rifles, the black metal ventilated handguard of the rifle
was retained and thus these rifles still were known to the world as “black flutes” and shared their name with the elite Special Air Service of The Northern Expanse who persisted in their use through the many attempts to rearm these stubborn riflemen.

VARIANTS:
Note: All variants except No. 7-3/4 capable of using new 20 round magazines as well as old 10 round capacity magazines.

No. 7 Mk. 1 – Updated rifle though retaining the traditional rifle stock configuration of the No. 2

No. 7 Mk. 2 - Updated rifle using the new in-line butt stock and pistol grip configuration made from sandalwood and later of polymer.

No. 7 Mk. 3 – A variant with a slightly modified receiver and stock to accept an integral drum magazine of 10 round capacity. This drum allows loading through the right side using standard chargers or through single rounds without opening the bolt. Originally intended for sniper use, this variant has become very popular with sportsmen and competition shooters. The Mk.4 variant is equipped with a pistol grip stock.

No. 8 Mk. 1 – See below.
