The Type 97 (Chinese: 97式強大步槍; pinyin: 97 shì Qiángdà Bùqiāng), designed by the Rao Arms Complex, was a candidate to replace the Type 75 as the service rifle of the Jeunese military.

[Design]
The Type 97 was a selective-fire automatic rifle, using a conventional short-stroke piston, keeping the rifle relatively clean. The Type 97 uses a gas-operated rotating bolt with gas deflection, and can achieve a maximum rate of fire of 720 rounds per minute.

The rifle had an electric firing device for use with its quasi-caseless ammunition, and a three-position ambidextrous trigger group fire selector, including safety, single-round and automatic fire modes. The trigger group can be replaced with another burst-fire mode, as it was sometimes used in Western militaries. The ammunition, the 7×50mm KWDY round, uses a system similar to the Benelli CB M2 SMG, utilizing a circular-shaped hollow block to hold the round in place within the chamber. When fired, the block exits the barrel along with the round, and splits in two along perforated lines like a sabot. The Type 97 uses transparent plastic double-stacked 400-gram curved box magazines. The rifle uses a birdcage-type flash suppressor, similar to the device on the SIG SG 550. A reinforced lug was included, for use with a 18-centimeter bayonet. The rifle was also compatible with the Type 85 rifle grenade launcher (85枪榴弹发器开; 85 Qiangliudan Fasheqi).

The overall length of the Type 97 totals 780 mm, with a barrel 562 mm long, weighing 2.5 kg empty. A significant portion of both the rifle's receiver and stock was carbon fiber-reinforced polymer. The rifle can be field-stripped without tools, using a system of cross-pins.

The rifle was equipped by default with iron sights, but may also be equipped with holographic sights or telescopic zoom sights for designated marksman use.

Eventually, 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.

There were two variants of the Type 97.

+Type 97 – Standard rifle configuration

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. 8 - 6.5x55mm - 11x43mm Kurz Mauser

Cartridge: 6.5x55mm Mauser, 11x43mm Kurz Mauser
Action: Gas operated, vertically locking lug.
Length: 900 mm (35 in.)
Barrel: 355 mm (14 in.)
Weight: 4.2 kg, empty.
Magazine: 10, 20 round, detachable box, 45 detachable drum.
Production cost: $750
Export Cost: $1000

The No. 8 rifle was conceived as a more modern and updated add-on to the No. 7 series of semi-automatic rifles for use by special forces teams and elite military groups. The most obvious difference is the change in length, the rifle has been radically shortened to make it more handy in close quarters battle and compact for transport. Operation of the weapon is exactly the same as that of the No. 7 series of rifles. The No. 8 is in use by a multitude of special forces groups including the renowned Black Flutes.

KEY CHANGES:

- A shortened barrel, stock, and gas piston assembly.

- The gas piston tube and ventilated metal handguard have been deleted and replaced with a one-piece machined aluminum replacement. The Forward Rail Assembly comprises attachment rails at the 3, 9, and 12 o'clock positions. The top rail runs the full length of the rifle allowing the attachment of any standard sighting device. The FRA acts as the replacement gas tube for the piston to ride in reducing weight.

- A folding tubular metal stock is attached folding to the left when the release is pressed. While folded, the butt can be used as a vertical grip if necessary.

- Fixed sights have been deleted and replaced by folding combat sights attached to the top rail and are folded out of the way when an optical sight is in use or co-witnessed.

- A large and very effective flash suppressor/muzzle brake added to the end of the barrel in place of the original slant muzzle brake.

VARIANTS:

No. 8 Mk. 1 - Standard carbine variant with folding metal stock.

No. 8 Mk. 2 - Heavy barreled version used for the squad automatic rifle roll utilizing the standard 20 round box magazine or 45 round drum.

No. 8 Mk. 3 - Standard carbine rebarreled to fire a 11mm projectile for situations where high stopping power and low penetration are required such as in a hostage rescue scenario.

The Type 03 battle rifle (Chinese: 03式強大步槍 【簡稱03式】; pinyin: 03 shì Qiángdà Bùqiāng), also known infrequently as the T03, is a battle rifle manufactured by Rao Arms of Tieshan, Jeuna. The rifle is based on the EM-2, and is the standard service rifle of the Jeunese military.

[History]
In 1999, the Jeunese Army contrived requirements for a weapon to replace the Type 97 battle rifle, which had been intended to replace the Type 75 and Type 96. Stress was laid upon reliability, simplicity and ruggedness. Another aim was to reduce the felt recoil, which had been a complaint with many Jeunese soldiers. The candidates were narrowed down to the QSY-65 by Rao Arms (designed by Rao to work with 7×43mm cartridges) and the WBZ.F38 (developed by LJT in 5.56×45mm). In 2003, the QSY-63 was chosen for the 7×43 mm cartridge's superior ballistics. In March 2004, the adoption of the rifle was publicly announced, where it received its official service designation of Type 03. Over 700,000 rifles have been manufactured since then, and production continues as of 2008.

[Design]
The Type 03 is a gas-operated, magazine-fed, select-fire, bullpup assault rifle, of modular design. Originally derived from the earlier Type 97, the Type 03 has a longer receiver allowing for a longer bolt travel and thus reduced felt recoil. The weapon's short-stroke gas piston is located above the barrel and is operated by means of a self-venting gas block that regulates the gas tube's pressure, releasing excess gas as needed. The Type 03 fires from an open breach, decreasing the possibility of a round cooking off in the chamber and improving weapon control when firing on automatic. Though specific configurations of this rifle may be set for left or right-handed users the following description will refer solely to the latter for the sake of conciseness.

The weapon is readied by pulling back on the cocking handle, which is rigidly attached to the gas rod on the right side. Once the bolt is locked back, pulling the trigger releases the bolt carrier to ride forward and strip, and then chamber a round from the top of the magazine. Once the bolt carrier comes to a stop against the chamber, the firing pin rides forward and forces two horizontally opposed flaps outwards from the bolt carrier into two recesses in the walls of the receiver, locking the bolt in place and sealing the chamber. Having pushed the flaps out of the way, the firing pin passes through an opening in the bolt face and strikes the cartridge's primer. This differs from the earlier Type 97, which used a bulky and complicated electrical ignition system. The round then continues on its way down the barrel, as the self-regulating gas block taps some of the resulting gas to drive the gas piston rearward. The gas piston actions on the firing pin and forces it to the rear of the bolt carrier, allowing the locking flaps to be forced from their recesses unlocking the bolt, and driving the bolt carrier back against the recoil spring. The braided stainless steel recoil spring compresses as the bolt rides back within the receiver on two internal milled rails. On the bottom of the receiver a stud trips the ejector bar, located to the bottom and left side of the bolt, throwing the expended round free as the bolt begins to decelerate. With sufficient internal length in the weapon's receiver, the Type 03 has very low felt recoil and is suitably controllable in bursts with proper training. Once set back the weapon is free to restart the firing cycle.

The weapon's four-position selector switch which is located just behind and above the trigger guard, this has a wide ‘paddle style’ switch which gives excellent control even while wearing gloves or under stress. The four positions are fairly straightforward and instead of using pictographs are represented by a letter or number as below.

S – Safe, the ’S’ like the rest of the positions is engraved into the receiver then filled with white reflective enamel so as to make it more easily recognized in low light in battle conditions.
1 – Single shot or Semi-Automatic
3 – Three-round Burst
A – Automatic

The barrel of the Type 03 is longer than its predecessor, improving the round efficiency and muzzle velocity. The cold hammer forged barrel is chrome-plated and achieves significantly less barrel wear, extending barrel life over 40% longer than the Type 97. Complimenting its low felt recoil, the Type 03 uses a bird-cage style flash-suppressor/compensator to redirect a portion of the muzzle energy upwards to counter the weapons natural barrel climb when fired. Complimenting its aggressive compensator is an under-slung bayonet lug, which was designed to mount the Type 25 bayonet, named for its aggressive 25.5 cm blade: a fearsome attachment to a capable rifle. The Type 03 is fed by a 30-round translucent magazine made of high-strength polymer, though it is capable of accepting any STANAG-type magazine, including drums. The standard translucent magazines use a ‘Stud and Catch’ to allow for multiple magazines to be attached to each other, and allow for proper stand-off to for each to individually fit in the magazine well.

Furniture for the Type 03 is made from glass-fiber reinforced Zytel polymer, the receiver is made from stamped steel, and is fitted with a butt plate of soft rubber molded around a metal reinforcing plate. Iron sights consist of a fixed front sight and folding rear sight. The protected front post sight is attached to the barrel and is adjustable for elevation, and a small tritium insert improves sight acquisition in low light and makes the weapon faster on target in daylight. The folding rear sight is attached via its pivot pin to the carrying handle, which is fitted with a M1913 specification rail for mounting almost any optical, or electro-optical sight in the world. The rear folding aperture sight is designed to be set high on the rail, allowing its use in an emergency through most modern optical gun sights without its removal. The rear sight is adjustable for windage and elevation without tools, and retains its zero even while folded against the receiver. The Type 03 has M1913 Picatinny rails on the receiver top, sides and barrel underside. The Type 03 is compatible with the Type 85 40 mm grenade launcher to serve as squad-level fire support.

[Production and operators]
In 2002, the Jeunese Army ordered some eight hundred thousand rifles as a force-wide battle rifle replacement after the trial run in the 43rd Mountain Division's service, with a delivery schedule from 2003 to 2009.

In 2003, the Jeunese Republican Guard ordered 23,518 rifles to equip its soldiers. By 2006, the entire Republican Guard had converted to the Type 03.

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.

Hali-53 Multi-Service Assault Rifle [Five-Three M-SAR]


Saga of the .221 Orchomenos
The .221 was introduced as the principle round of the Ejermacht with the release of relatively unconventional Hali-42 assault rifle. In fact, the entire package had spiraled away from prior rifle convention (the Hali-21). This rifle completely replaced the Ejermacht's rifle by 2014 and saw wide export. Ultimately, the rifle would see service in the War of Golden Succession (May 2016 - May 2018) in which several of its faults would be revealed - most of these faults were relevant to the .221 Orchomenos, not surprisingly. Almost immediately after the Treaty of Aurillac a general review of the rifle was funded by the Fuermak (armed forces). This review was tasked with pinpointing the problems of the Hali-42 and assisting the Ejermacht in providing a number of requirements for a future assault rifle. The task force operated between August 2018 and November 2019, with a white paper prepared for the government by January 2020.

Generally, all criticism of the .221 suggested that the round was by far too small for successful application as an assault rifle caliber. It was found that there were literally tens of thousands of complaints that in close quarter battles the .221 round was far too fast, and far too small, and would normally end in a through-and-through hit of the enemy soldier. Even though the round used a barbette in order to increase the damage inside the body, the barbette was not large enough to slow down the bullet, or damage the man enough to take him down in one shot. Consequently, it was found that many times it would take three to four bullets to bring down a man, ending in many more Imperial deaths - given that the enemy had more time to fire back, between the time of the first shot and the time he was taken down. Moreover, there were examples of wounded Havenic soldiers being tended to and being sent right into battle after they had been shot once or twice.

At longer ranges the .221 was found to be far more successful, as the bullet had time to slow down prior to impact. In fact, during the war there was an attempt to supply new .221 ammunition to troops destined to fight in Havenic cities during the Second Empire's advance south. It was found that logistically this was all but impossible, and not entirely feasible.

The task force also noted that the rifle within itself was far too complicated. For example, troops in the field found it hard to fix small problems and most of the time the rifle had to be exchanged for a brand new rifle, while the old rifle was sent back to the factory to be rebuilt. Ultimately this meant time and money - money that was not necessarily available. The main problem was the fact that the rifle used a binary liquid propellant with a caseless round. This meant that the liquid had to be stored in the rifle (making it less ergonomic) and pumped into the combustion chamber. Frequent problems with the pumps plagued early production versions of the rifle, and although the problem was tended to over the years the system was never liked by the personnel on the ground. Furthermore, despite the fact that the rifle fully armed was lighter due to the use of a liquid propellant, the fact remained that the storage cells in the rifle were bulky, making the rifle less ergonomic and harder to handle. In fact, it took a lot of experience and training to work around the poor physical design of the rifle.

The principle problems found in the Hali-42 soon found themselves as key points for the requirements outlined by the Ejermacht.

New requirements for a future rifle
Between January and March 2020 the Ejermacht outlined a series of requirements for various small-arms companies. These included:

- A new rifle caliber, superior in performance to the .221 Orchomenos and to existing 5.56mm assault rifle ammunitions.
- No more than 4.5kg empty.
- Solid propellant.
- Low recoil.
- Suppressed muzzle flash.

Two foreign companies and four indigenous companies offered their prototypes to the Ejermacht by February 2021. The two foreign companies were Izistan's Robertson Arms and Spizania's Confederate Armaments Incorporated. Despite the purchase of four X-4 (X denotes that the rifles were prototypes. Each of the three indigenous rifles were named X-1 through X-3, and Spizania's the X-5) rifles from Robertson Arms and fairly successful testing between March and July 2022 it was decided not to purchase the X-4 due to inferior ballistic performance of the Izistani round to the 6.64x51mm round used by the X-2 and X-3. Furthermore, the X-4 used a caseless round which after the experiences with the Hali-42 were not favored. The same remained true for Confederate Arms Incorporated's X-5, as well as the fact that it was far too unconventional for the taste of the Ejermacht - especially after the experience of using the Hali-42.

Ultimately, it was found that the best rifle with the best balance of old and new technologies was the X-2.

Birth of the Hali-5X project
In August 2021 the Ejermacht signed a contract in which it was stated that the government would fund the remainder of the development of the X-2 and would promise to purchase at least 100,000 rifles upon completion of the prototype. It was also agreed upon that the company designing the rifle (Gíert et Ber) would make substantial changes to the prototype. These included:

- Changing several materials in rifle construction to lighten its weight.
- Changing the standard cased round for a cased telescopic round to decrease weight further.
- Development of at least three separate rounds for the rifle.
- The rifle would have to be complete for production by January 2022.

The new rifle was given the name of Hali-5X and by September 2021 a new prototype had been delivered to the Ejermacht. In early October a further ten rifles were produced for testing, which continued until the end of the month. Minor modifications were made to the rifle between late October and December 2021, in preparation for production in January, unfortunately several glitches were found. The most important was the fact that the cased telescopic round designed for the rifle did not fully extend during flight, severely limiting the effectiveness of the round. Furthermore, the round was using an older solid propellant as opposed to the new solid propellant which had been offered to Gíert et Ber for modification into the ammunition. Fortunately, the contract was extended for another four months.

Modifications and testing continued and the round was finally ready for production by June 2022. Upon production the rifle was dubbed the Hali-53.

A new caliber is chosen
The Ejermacht ultimately chose the 6.64x51mm cased round as its next small-arms caliber, with the idea of equaling the power of a larger round in order to increase lethality. Ultimately, the increase in weight and the decrease in the amount of rounds in each magazine was solved with the use of cased telescoping ammunition which saved around 30% of the volume in comparison to a magazine holding conventional rounds of the same caliber. To further decrease weight each round uses a new polymer case which reduced individual round weight by over 20%.

The new case is manufactured out of two separate polymers. A 60% glass fiber filled polymer is the principle component, injected by the low-core technique. This polymer is reinforced by minor metallic inserts. A more ductile polymer is subsequently injected to fill the shoulder, mouth and neck areas of the round. This system solves several problems of existing polymer cases, including poor reliability. Furthermore, the system is not more expensive than using a brass case and saves more weight.

Ultimately, the use of both polymer casings and CTA technology allow the rifle to save a lot of weight in regards to its ammunition. Most importantly, it allows the rifle to be just as effective as other contemporaries (or more effective, even).

Three rounds were introduced along with the Hali-53. The first is the 6.64x51mm Orchomenos. This round is designed as the general use all-around bullet to be supplied in the most quantities. It is designed for penetration of the majority of existing infantry armors protecting the troops of foreign threats. The round is a tungsten-cored. copper jacketed round. The purpose of the round is speed and penetration. The round weighs ~7.8 grams and uses a 2 gram propellant. The second round is the 6.64x51mm PELE, which is designed with a high density jacket and a low density core. The idea is during impact the jacket bursts due to the low-compressibility of the core's material. The end result is a large amount of fragments bursting into the body, increasing the lethality of the weapon. This round is specifically designed for use against unarmored opponents. The third major round is the armor piercing 6.64x60mm flechette designed for penetration of thicker battle suits and power armor.

Several other rounds were also designed, including:

-6.64mm grenade
-6.64mm tracer
-6.64mm NL (non-lethal)

All combat rounds use a newly designed solid propellant to decrease weight and increase power. The best solid propellant for small arms use was found to be one composed of 25% nitrocellulose (NC), 45% cyclotrimethylenetrinitrimine (RDX) and 6% Glycidyl Azide Polymer (GAP), with other components. Originally a substance called TAGN had been included, but a low flame temperature was found not to be suitable for assault rifle application to avoid cook-offs. The main purpose was to find a highly dense solid propellant with high energy and a high rate of expansion - in other words, more velocity.

Rifle Operation
The Hali-42's operation was delayed blowback, and the original X-2 prototype by Gíert and Ber used the same system. However, in an effort to reduce recoil and improve accuracy it was decided to change the rifle operation to what is regarded as 'balanced automatics'. Balanced automatics is an extension of the short-stroke gas-operated, rotating-bolt mechanism of the AK-47. Instead of having just one gas-piston, balanced automatics uses two gas-pistons moving in opposite directions, meaning that the operator only feels the recoil created by the momentum of the forward moving bullet. The addition of this new system was a factor to the run over costs of the rifle program and to the retardation of the date for initial production. However, testing in early 2022 proved the value of 'balanced automatics'.

The Hali-5X was tested against the Hali-42 and the original Hali-5X using the same operating mechanism as the Hali-42. All three rifles were tested with a thirty-round mag of their respective calibers and were all tested on automatic fire. The Hali-42 managed to put three out of thirty rounds on target, while the original prototype of the Hali-5X put five out of thirty rounds on target. However, the new Hali-5X using balanced automatics successfully trained nineteen out of thirty bullets on target (all at 100 meters).

The ejection port of the rifle is located at the front of the weapon, and empty cases are ejected forward, allowing the rifle to be ambidextrous.

Scope
When the Ejermacht offered its requirements for a brand new assault rifle to several armaments companies, foreign and indigenous, it offered a separate list of requirements for new optic system for the rifle. The only company able to meet up to the Ejermacht's expectations proved to be Eldíen Electro-Optical Works. Eldíen had existed under the Kriegzimmer Conglomerate and then had become an independent company post-break up. It had worked on much of the electro-optics used on Kriegzimmer battleships and super dreadnoughts. A series of six different optics were offered, the differences dependent on cost. These competed against a total of thirty-nine other optics systems, including sixteen which were designed by foreign companies.

Eldíen's optics, which were ultimately chosen for contract, included a 1X red dot mode for close quarter combat (CQB), with the option to switch to up to 4X magnification using a cased reticule with adjustable brightness. The sight also included bullet drop compensation for ranges beyond 700 meters. The sights can be used with both eyes open, and is completely shock proof. Furthermore, even if part of the lens is covered with mud, or is shattered, the shooter can still accurately use the system if he/she can see through any surviving piece of the lens. The rifle operator can see this because a laser diode projects the target as a hologram image onto a hardened, three layer laminated glass window. This optical sights measures ~156mm in length and weighs ~390 grams.

For greater tactical flexibility an off-axis viewing device (OAVD) is also standard with the rifle. The system works by using two oval-shaped mirros to reflect the image from the rifle's optical sight to the soldier. This allows the soldier to literally look around corners. OAVDs within the Ejermacht are normally issued only during urban operations to provide soldiers with greater protection. Each OAVD extension measures 150mm and weighs 500 grams and can be clipped to the existing sight.

After the fall of the Kriegzimmer Corporation, the design was purchased by Allanean Arms.

Rifle Construction
The rifle is relatively light due to the increased usage of plastics as construction material. The barrel, however, remains of steel construction, although the bolt and bolt carrier are manufactured out of titanium. The receiver is built out of composite polymer. The ultimate aim was to construct a rifle with the least weight possible for greater ergonomics.

Allanean Arms Bayonet Knife Mark I

When Allanean Arms were asked to produce a traditional bayonet-knife for the Allanean Army and Marines, they didn't think twice about what they would use as the basis for this weapon. Even at that time – before the Edolian Wars, when Allanea was a young nations of only 150 million population – it was clear what the mainstay combat knife would be modeled upon. And never since has Allanean Arms, Incorporated - or the Allanean Army – felt the need to change anything major about this knife.

Ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, we present the Allanean Arms Bayonet-Knife Mark One – modeled, of course, on another classic design, the Bowie knife. It's likely that if Jim Bowie would have seen it, he would have somersaulted in his grave – with joy. And so will you once you have your hand on one of these babies.

Blade shape: As you already understand, this is a Bowie knife. The blade is ten inches long, exceeding by half an inch the blade length of the Gerber Bowie knife that served the Allanean Arms designers as an inspiration, and it is 8mm (5/16ths of an inch) thick at it's thickest point. The combat edge is razor-sharp (almost literally – rumors tell of Allanean Marines using these knives to shave), and sharpened throughout it's length, while on the blunt side, as proper for a Bowie, only the leading 3 inches are sharpened with the same quality.

Material: Here's where the knife differs from, and exceeds in quality, it's relatives. It is made from high-carbon ATS-34 steel, and then covered in black through the use of titanium nitrate. This makes the blade less noticeable in darkness.

Grip: The tail-end of the knife runs throughout the grip, and as such the main function of the grip is an ergonomic one – or so would you think. However, the Allanean have put a heavy metal garde between the blade and the handle proper, which makes the knife slightly heavier to use for bludgeoning if needed. The grip can be also used to affixe the knife as a bayonet to a standard Allanean assault rifle, or any rifle that is compliant with the Allanean military standard. The handle/grip itself is covered in ergonomic rubber for ease of grip, and the pommel has a plastic, virtually unbreakable compass in it – by this we mean you could hit someone over the head with this pommel, and be much more likely to crush his skull than the compass.

Scabbard: The knife comes with a simple, carbon-fiber, rigid scabbard. It has two external pockets on one side, one that carries a length (5 meters) of paracord for your needs, and the other carries an emergency supply of combat drugs – an adrenaline pill, a methampethamine pill, and a third pill, usually an Insta-Test testosterone pill.




Name: BK Mk 1
Blade Length: 254mm (10 inches)
Total Length: 378mm (15 inches)
Weight: 550 grams
Scabbard: Carbon-fiber
Price: $50


Users of this knife include: Allanea, the Crazed Marines, Warring Minorities, and others.

GH-31 12.7mm High Power Sniper Rifle

Type: Heavy Calibre Sniper Rifle
Builder: Allanean Arms
Abstract: The GH-31 sniper rifle was developed specifically for the Macabee special forces, made practical after the success of prototype rifles in the Operation Highborne, the opening attacks on Jagadan personnel in the Macabee-Jagadan colonial war. The rifle, being too expensive for standard infantry divisions up to now, may be widely used throughout the Golden Throne's military, despite its weight, simply because rifles need the extra punch to go through new battlesuits employed by certain nations, and even to get that extra range and lethality. Nonetheless, the GH-13 will remain the standard sniper rifle for standard armed personnel forces, including the mechanized divisions. The GH-31 employs several new and advance technologies which put it one step ahead of other sniper rifles in the same class. All in all, the GH-31 is a promising gun that will surely make it into the annals of gun history.
Operation: Short recoil, semi-automatic and manual.
Calibre: 12.7mm/.50 Cal armour piercing discarding sabot
Barrel Length: 7.42cm with a muzzle flash suppressor.
Overall Length: 117.23cm
Muzzle Velocity: 980m/s
Range: 2,300m
Magazine Capacity: 6 rounds
Weight: 8.5kg
Scope Technology: The scope is an all powerful digital optimizer using a charged coupled device [CCD]with a small computer chip which allows the operator to set different detection modes, including infra-red vision and electro-optical, with extremely accurate image rendering when zoom is used.
Ballistics: Using an optical ranging system the problems of long range precision fire have been lessened. The computer chip automatically detects air temperature, barometric pressure, and range, with the user specifying ammunition type. Range is detected through an automated range finder. The new ballistics suit also include a stabalization of the image through the scope
Recoil: To reduce the recoil of the round the GH-31 uses a multi-baffle muzzle break.
Accessories:
Bipod
Hardened Carrying Case [airborne operations]
Detachable Handle
Detachable Muzzle Break
Barrel Life: 1000 rounds
Cost: $9,000 USD
Production Rights: $70 million USD

This design was purchased by Allanean Arms from Kriegzimmer Corporation (OOC: The Maccabees player gave it to me).

F-17AL Arrowhawk
Image
This design has been vetted by the Hightech Design Consortium


Background:

Originally, this design has been produced by Allanean Arms engineers based on the F-17 Arrowhawk, the air superiority fighter of the Illioran Air Force, after Illioran Arms was purchased completely by Allanean Arms. It underwent multiple upgrades, specifically for improved armament and superior avionic. A new ejection seat system has also been incorporated. Like the original F-17, this aircraft is equipped with a variable-geometry wing design.

b]Airframe:[/b] The airframe is constructed of two main metals, Titanium Reinforced with carbon fibers and an Aluminum-Lithium alloy to provide the much needed strength for the variable geometry wings to even reach its super cruise speed, along with the possible G-forces exerted and yaw and pitching of the wings. The rest of the airframe is constructed out of a mix of carbon reinforced plastics to provide a light, yet strong, skin for the airframe, along with small amounts of steel and aluminum in key areas. The Actual amounts are as follows: 25% Aluminum-Lithium Alloy, 27% Titanium, 44% Carbon reinforced polymers and plastics, 2% steel, 2 % aluminum.

Propulsion: The F-17AL uses two Have-Ho LBP-220 Turbofans, rated at 45,000lbf with full afterburner, and 35,000 without, for a net thrust of 70,000lbs normally, and 90,000 in bursts. These engines were originally designed for the IG-45 aircraft, which was a high-speed, low agility interceptor platform, meant to launch missiles, and not dogfight. To accommodate the need for dogfighting, and in general, more agility, the 220 was given 3D Thrust vectoring, increasing it's Rate of climb, and it's ability to dodge missiles and get around other aircraft. To reduce it's frontal RCS, the inlets are "S" inlets, much like those used on the F-22, to reduce reflections from the engine.

Image


Weapons: The original F-17 aspired to be a stealth aircraft and therefore had 2 internal bays. The Allaneans had no such aspirations, and although the aircraft possesses limited RADAR signature reduction measures, the internal bays were eliminated in the Allanean modification, replaced instead by a set of 14 pylons – eight mounted under the fuselage, 2 under the nacelles and 4 on wing gloves.
The F-17AL also has a cannon in it's nose in the case of a dogfight.

Avionics: The Allanean design team had eliminated most of the original design features of Illioran avionics, implanting instead a standard Allanean-designed flight computer. This computer, known as the “Agamemnon” is capable of the following features:



  • Projection of an HUD display onto the pilot's cornea via a flight helmet. Alternatively HUD can be displayed via ocular implants or conventionally, on the helmet surface.

  • Voice control.

  • Navigation.

  • Integration with SkyTux, FireTux, or any local C3 software.

It is also with the A3 Radar system. This is the basic RADAR system on all Illiorian aircraft, and uses a dual band solid state pulse Doppler radar to actively track aircraft around it up to 100NM in clear skies. It also has a passive system to identify radar waves from approximately 1.5X the effective distance of the broadcasting radar, and ways to get around it. A LADAR system is also incorporated in order to map terrain around the aircraft, and to give a 3D 360 degree picture of the area around the aircraft, to a maximum clear distance of 40NM, and a "blurry" distance up to 50NM. Finally, a FLIR system has been installed by the Allanean Arms company.

THIS DESIGN HAS BEEN MADE BY THE MACCABEES PLAYER AND IS USED WITH HIS PERMISSION

Dienstad class Strategic Projection Vessel [SPV]


The Dienstad class Strategic Projection Vessel [N.B.: From now on the term 'strategic projection vessel' will be abbreviated SPV] was born of a requirement within the Maríenen [OOC: Imperial Marines] for a multi-mission amphibious ship capable of transporting them to the area of amphibious landing and to support them during the operation. This requirement was developed during the War of Golden Succession, when a similar vessel was not in service. In fact, during most amphibious landings during the war all landing units found themselves inadequately supported by allied naval forces behind them. For example, during the initial landings at Pir-Sar the Ejermacht infantry were decimated by coastal artillery and the numerical superiority of the enemy. Although three Vic de Chassenay class gun boats had consequently been constructed out of older merchant ships in order to provide naval fire support for a second landing undertaken by the Maríenen it was found to be only rudimentary, although these operations were successful in establishing a front in the northern areas of the city, and ultimately the Sarcanzan resistance in the city was crushed.

Similar problems were found to exist during special amphibious landings up and down the Havenic [Safehaven2] coast, and even during the amphibious landings along the Guffingfordi coast - Imperial troops 'hopped' from port city to port city to deny Stevid as much coast of Guffingford as possible. The problem was usually more persistent during the Guffingfordi operations where there was no Kriermada support and all naval support was conducted with captured Guffingfordi merchant ships hastily converted to gun boats. Interestingly, their crews would remain the Guffingfordi crews - paid by the Empire [at very high rates] - while their guns would be controlled by the more skilled artillerymen of the Ejermacht - sometimes small radio controlled unmanned aerial vehicles [UAV] had to be used as artillery spotters during the artillery duels with the coast.

The idea for the Dienstad was probably born after the Siege of Pir-Sar, although serious development did not begin until June 2018, after the end of the War of Golden Succession. Interestingly, as early as November 2016 [around two months after the end of the Siege of Pir-Sar] there was an attempt to use a newly constructed super merchant ship hull [~500m long] to be used as an amphibious ship with the capability of carrying at least twenty-six short take-off and landing aircraft. This project was developed between November 2016 and March 2017, but with the end of the naval war [with Stevid] in sight the project was dropped. Only during the resurgence of amphibious operations against Safehaven was there also a rebirth of interest within an amphibious ship. This requirement was mostly necessary within the ranks of the Maríenen, which had expanded in size, and had begun to be the sole group of soldiers responsible for amphibious operations with the Navy [although the Ejermacht's size guarantee it the largest role in any large-scale amphibious landing, since there wouldn't be enough Maríenen available].

The Dienstad project was delayed by the fact that by the end of the war the Empire had run out of money. The Ejermacht had expanded from a force of less than a half a million men to thirty-three million personnel, including twenty-four to twenty-six million combat personnel alone. Most of the Empire's coffers had gone into arming the massive ground army which had been mobilized between May 2016 and May 2018 - most of this army remained motorized even at the end of the war, as it was found impossible to mechanize it in time without putting the Empire into a massive debt with Kriegzimmer [a political consideration, given that the administration did not want to give Kriegzimmer the leverage to return to its super conglomerate powers that it held before the war - although, it ultimately will return to this status]. However, by the end of the war the Empire had begun to pursue a drastic naval modernization program and this included the Maríenen - a department of the Kriermada. The Dienstad project, or Project K456, was officially opened 14 June 2018 and as early as 13 November 2020 a design was introduced to the Maríenen - this was consequently accepted, and the first keel was laid down 1 January 2021. The first ship of the class, the HES Dienstad, was completed by 17 December 2022. Three more ships were laid down a month after the Dienstad and completed three months after the finishing of the Dienstad - these were the Pir-Sar, San Anton de la Luz, Ferrol and the Valenziaco. All four were named after amphibious operations during the War of Golden Succession, the last three being in Safehaven. Four more ships were completed by the following year, marking a total of eight ships completed, with two more arriving by 2025, for a total fleet of ten. These were:

- Dienstad
- Pir-Sar
- San Anton de la Luz
- Ferrol
- Valenziaco
- Halendoos
- Tercel
- Tashar'dobli
- Saint James of Riverine
- Greater Dienstad

By the time the fourth ship was completed the Kriermada had decided that it was not necessary to procure more, and cooperation with the Ejermacht failed as the ship was seen as incapable of transporting the sufficient amount of me - it was seen as too general. Consequently, a separate project was conducted in order to design several ships in order to support amphibious operations on a much larger scale. These ships would specialize, as opposed to combine as with the Dienstad class. Nevertheless, the Dienstad class found great success within the Maríenen, and would first be used to transport several thousand Maríenen to Scandavian States to reinforce allied armies against an expected Questerian invasion.

Armament
The Dienstad's armament dossier is dedicated entirely towards self-defense. She carries forty-eight [24] P.746.B surface to air missiles arrayed in launchers of four blocks. There are six launchers on each side of the ship. The P.746.B is a medium-range surface to air missile of the P.746.X series of surface to air missiles. It has a maximum range of one-hundred and thirty [130] kilometers and a maximum altitude of eleven thousand [11,000] meters. The P.746.B has been a common 'box launched' surface to air missile of all Kriermada ships, although normally it's paired with the P.746.A which is fired from a vertical launch tube. In the Dienstad's case, it's expected that the amphibious group will be dependent on ships like the Taníat class Anti-Air Warfare Battlecruiser [BCGN]. As a final layer of defense against the missile threat each ship is outfitted with three Cohort Mk. II close-in weapon systems. This system is a six-barreled 35mm electromagnetic system - it's standard within various international navies.

For protection against smaller crafts which include suicide boats and boarding parties the Dienstad carries six S-30 of Mekugian design. These are 13.3mm in caliber. Boarding was actually fairly common during the War of Golden Succession by Havenic marines who attempted to board Imperial fast attack crafts patrolling the Havenic coastline and enforcing a blockade on the nation.

Apart from these three systems the only other armament of the ship can be considered its air arm when it's in carrier mode, or it's outfitted with aircraft for any given amphibious operation. The Dienstad is not an offensive oriented ship, except through its air-arm, and most of its volume is taken up by deck space for transport.
