UNIT COST: $1,400 (ICR-A), $1,600 (ICR-B), $1,850 (ICR-C)
DPR (Combined): $18,000,000,000

The APR-2 Infantry Combat Rifle, more commonly known as the ICR, is a multi-caliber, gas-operated, magazine-fed, foldable-stock weapon system designed by Zeus Defense Industries in order to replace the Daewoo Precision Industries K2 and some other firearms of the Federal Eastern Union Defense Forces. Though primarily designed as an assault rifle, the multi-caliber ICR also fills the role as a battle rifle/designated marksman rifle and a carbine, while a dedicated Sniper Rifle variant and a light machine gun variant is also planned to be released in the near future. All ICR variants excluding the ICR-A is capable of mounting gun-mounted grenade launchers, such as the Mk.13 used on the FN SCAR.

With the future usage of the operator and versatility in consideration, the ICR has been developed to be mission-adaptable: in other words, it was built with the ability to swap out scopes, sights and other objects depending on the mission the operator was to encounter. This has been made possible through the inclusion of Picatinny rails on the top of the receiver, two removable side rails and a rail at the bottom, which can mount 'just about anything that fits in there'.

The ICR consists of a upper and lower receiver (the prior made of aluminum and polymer, and the latter made of polymer), while it uses a gas-operated piston system to fire its rounds. It generally uses STANAG magazines: however, the operator must keep in mind that other magazines, even some Russian magazines, can also be accepted into the ICR as well. The front sight flips down for unobstructed use of optics and accessories. Lessons learned from the FN SCAR, it uses a closed gas system similar to the M1 Carbine while the rest of the bolt carrier is closer to that of the Heckler & Koch G36.

The ICR is one of the most ergonomic rifles currently out on the market, as it is both controllable through both hands. Regardless of the operator's hand (right or left), the operator is capable of using all controls while keeping his eyes on target and index finger near the trigger. The foldable, length-adjustable stock is made with the consideration of the physical differences of different operators.

One of the greatest advantages the ICR holds over various other rifles is that it can be interchanged very quickly (if not counting the scopes and electronics). With one lower receiver and two different upper receivers, the operator can switch from an ICR-B (a 5.56 mm assault rifle) to an ICR-A (a personal defense weapon), whereas a change from the ICR-B to an ICR-C (a 7.62 mm battle rifle/designated marksman rifle) is possible with a single upper receiver and two different lower receivers, along with a few other modules that distinguish the ICR-B and the ICR-C. Barrels (though it is not a problem for the ICR-A and the ICR-B) can be changed within a few minutes, due to simplified designs.

ICR-A Personal Defense Weapon (PDW)
Image

The ICR-A is the smallest, lightest variant among the ICR, designed to be a personal defense weapon in close-quarter combat. It features a smaller size and a better rate-of-fire, while retaining the versatility of the rest of the ICR line. It is often compared to a number of submachine guns, namely the H&K MP5; however, the ICR-A utilizes the exact same bullets as the ICR-B assault rifle instead of the 9 mm bullets commonly used on submachine guns, which results in larger destruction, while making an ICR-A capable of converting into an ICR-B if needed. It is an ideal weapon for Special Operations Forces, those requiring close-quarter combat (including SWAT officers), vehicle crew and so on.

ICR-B Assault Rifle
Image

The ICR-B is the 'heart of the ICR line': it is an assault rifle using 5.56 mm rounds that can be fired in three modes: semi-automatic, full-automatic and three-round burst. Meant to be the primary weapon of infantry forces, the ICR-B features every advantage that the ICR line can offer. Its relatively light weight of 2.94 kilograms (compared to the HK416's 2.950 kg and the FN SCAR's 3.04 kg), coupled with its length of 830 mm (900 mm with extended stock) offers excellent mobility for infantry troops. Due to its versatility, the ICR-B has a large possibility of upgrades available, giving it an edge over a number of existing rifles today.

ICR-C Battle Rifle/Designated Marksman Rifle
Image

The ICR-C, a heavier re-designing of the ICR-B, is a battle rifle/designated marksman rifle made to use 7.62 mm rounds. Thanks to its caliber, it is able to fire heavier adn more devastating ammunition compared to the ICR-A and the ICR-B. Although intended to be a battle rifle/designated marksman rifle, the ICR-C, with a few minutes of modifications, can also double as a sniper rifle. Most recently, it has been made available to use Soviet 7.62 x 39 mm rounds (instead of the 7.62 x 51 mm NATO rounds) - the ammo of the AK-47.

Z.D.I. APR-3 Objective Infantry Combat Rifle
Paving the future of infantry warfare. Redesigning urban warfare.

Image

UNIT COST: $15,000 (ammo not included)
DPR: Unavailable

The ZDI AR-3 Objective Infantry Combat Rifle, sometimes called the ZDI APR-3 Composite Rifle, is an assault rifle designed to fire both regular gun rounds (namely 5.56 mm rounds) and 20 x 32 mm smart grenades. It bears a number of similarities to the American XM29 OICW; however, it shows great distinction to the XM29 for that the APR-3, unlike the XM29, has been designed to be a supportive weapon, not a standard rifle for every soldier to carry. Furthermore, the APR-3, unlike the XM29, has a bolt-action mode for the smart grenades to be fired - something that has contributed to the simplification of the parts.

One of the most notable features in the gun itself is the integrated electronic sight system. Equipped with both a laser range-finder and a ballistics computer, it allows the operator to find his/her distance to a target and subsequently fire a smart grenade against it. The grenade will then detonate a few meters away from the target, effectively utilizing its exploding yield to take out the target. If there are no needs of the smart grenade to be used, then the APR-3 is able to fire rifle rounds against the enemy, pinning them down. In the same logic, it can be said that the APR-3 turns covers obsolete: with smart grenades firing right above the enemy's heads (which has been possible), enemies ducking for cover against gunfire will no longer be safe from offensive fire.

Since it fires two types of munitions, the APR-3's fire selector mode comes in four types - three for the rifle, and one for the grenade. The 9 o'clock is at 'safe', twelve o'clock is for semi-automatic fire for the rifle, and the three o'clock is for full automatic fire of the rifle. The six o'clock is for the grenade launcher - since situations of firing both the rifle and the grenade have been rare, only the grenade launcher fires the grenades when on this mode.

One of the most important features in the APR-3 is in its 20 x 32 mm smart grenades: to overcome the small caliber, the smart grenades were lengthened from other grenades that were used on the comparable XM29 OICW. The grenades come in two variants - one is a practice round (RG-171), which has no explosive effects. The other, designated as the RG-170, is an explosive smart grenade which can detonate in three selectable modes: point detonation, point detonation-delay, and airburst. The three modes can be controlled by the integrated electronic sight system.

AP-4 Automatic Grenade Launcher [MT: ZDI]

Z.D.I. AP-4 Automatic Grenade Launcher
The Killer of infantry. The Reaper of infantry warfare.

Image

UNIT COST: $23,000 (ammo not included)
DPR: $7,000,000,000

The ZDI AP-4 is an automatic grenade launcher built by Zeus Defense Industries, made to project fire support for the infantry. It has been compared to the American Mk.19 grenade launcher: however, the AP-4 features lighter weight (reducing the burden for those that carry the AP-4), a larger variety of usable grenades and better optics. Although having its inspirations from the Mk.19 grenade launcher, the AP-4 has overcome the walls set by its 'role model'.

Capable of firing 40 mm grenades at high speeds, the AP-4 is a belt-fed, air-cooled, crew-served, fully automatic weapon. Its 40 mm grenades are fired at a rate of somewhere around 350 rounds/minute (at maximum), resulting in a practical rate-of-fire of 60 rounds/minute (rapid) and 40 rounds/minute (sustained). The weapon operates on the blowback principle, which uses the chamber pressure from each fired round to load and re-cock the weapon. The grenades can be fired at a maximum distance of 2,400 meters, though its effective range to a point target is about 1,600 meters - almost a whole mile. This means that the AP-4 is able to provide fire support a whole mile away, which can make the difference between life and death for the soldiers fighting in the battlefield.

One of the largest problems of automatic grenade launchers is that they are heavy - the Mk.19, for example, weighs 35.2 kilograms alone (without counting tripods or anything else). To solve this problem partially, the AP-4 has brought reductions in weight through redesigning and simplification of some parts, usage of new, lighter materials and some changes in the gun's structure. As a result, the AP-4 has succeeded in reducing the weight to 25.4 kilograms (weapon alone). Its tripod weighs about 14 kilograms - 5 kilograms lighter than the tripod used on the M2 Browning.

Another advantage that the AP-4 holds over its predecessors is that it uses a larger variety of grenades. Lessons learned from infantry warfare, the AP-4 utilizes precision-guided smart grenades, which are guided, targeted and programmed by an advanced joint optical system (not shown on picture above). Although it is able to use conventional 40 mm grenades (but not those used on the M203 and other rifle-mounted grenade launchers), its true merit is shown through its usage of smart grenades. The smart grenades, targeted through the optical system, is fired against the enemy and can be detonated in the optimum location for fire support, greatly increasing the efficiency of the launched grenades.

Specifications

  • Weight: 25.4 kg (weapon alone)
  • Length: 1,030 mm
  • Barrel length: 410 mm
  • Width: 240 mm
  • Height: 190 mm
  • Cartridge: 40×53 mm Grenades (Conventional/Smart)

  • Rate of fire: 325–375 rpm (maximum), 60 rpm (rapid), 40 rpm (sustained)
  • Muzzle velocity (average): 240 m/s
  • Effective firing range: 1,600 m
  • Maximum firing range: 2,400 m
  • Guidance (Smart Grenades): Advanced Joint Optical System (AJOS)

Z.D.I. AP-11 Portable Grenade Launcher
Victors of infantry warfare. Busters of just about anyone.

Image

UNIT COST: $16,000 (Optics not included)
DPR: $10,000,000,000

The AP-11 is a portable 40 mm six-shot grenade launcher developed by Zeus Defense Industries. Based on the famous Milkor MGL, the AP-11 fires low-velocity, yet high-explosive grenades towards targets, detonating on or above the target. A multiple-shot, revolving grenade launcher, the AP-11 gives a soldier a large advantage over other single-shot, rifle-mounted grenade launchers, such as the M203 or the EGLM (on FN SCAR).

The AP-11 uses a various array of grenades, such as HE, HEAT, anti-riot gas rounds and so on. Although production of such rounds in the Federal Eastern Union have ceased since legislation prohibited it in 2001, the AP-11 was also able to fire deadly white phosphorous rounds. Regardless of the type of grenades, the AP-11 uses a simple revolving mechanism to rapidly reload rounds upon firing, enabling the AP-11 to maintain a higher rate of fire than many other grenade launchers. Using grenades, the AP-11 is initially meant to be an offensive weapon.

The capabilities of the AP-11 doesn't end on the military: recently, it has forged paths into law enforcement for riot control and close-quarter urban 'combat'. The AP-11's ability to launch various types of grenades have proven very useful for police forces demanding greater firepower to crack down on gangs, cartels and armed riots. For criminals of such caliber, the grenade launcher has proven to be a very effective weapon.

Specifications

  • Weight: 5.0 kg (scopes not included)
  • Length: 775 mm stock extended, 565 mm stock folded
  • Barrel length: 310 mm
  • Cartridge
    • 40×46 mm grenade
    • 40×53 mm grenade
