Since 2000, Azania's standard-issue service rifle has been this:


The Vektor CR-21

The Vektor CR-21 is an Azanian assault rifle chambered for 5.56×45mm NATO ammunition. It was designed by Denel Land Systems as a replacement for the Azanian Defence Force's R4 assault rifle.

Internally, the CR-21 uses a modified version of the action found in the R4 assault rifle, which is known for its reliability and relatively low weight. The rifle also makes significant use of high-impact polymer, with the only exposed metal part on the rifle being the front of the barrel with its integral flash suppressor. Both of these result in the rifle having a low loaded weight, of 3.72 kg (8.2 lbs). The CR-21 comes standard with a 1X magnification optical sight with an illuminated reticle that does not require batteries. This sight is mounted on a sight rail, allowing easy removal and attachment, as well as the use of a range of different sight options. The forward handgrip has been specially designed to be easily removed and replaced with a grenade launcher similar to the M203 grenade launcher. Finally, the stock has a built-in compartment which stores a cleaning kit for the rifle, removing the usual need for the soldier to carry this separately.

PK24/25 Air Rifle

The Main Service Rifle of the Kalloshcho Armed Forces is a native designed weapon called the PK24/25. The PK24/25 ("Pokishilak-Kvar (24/25)") is a Kalloshchan selective-fire rifle developed by the Kalloshchan Ministry of Military Micro Arms and manufactured by S4 Industrial Yards. It is currently the standard service rifle of the Kingdom of Kalloshcho, and is perhaps one of the most famous firearms produced by Kalloshcho.

A distinctive feature of the PK24/25's action is its short-recoil operated system. Designed with reliability and simplicity in mind, the PK24/25 was built with large and heavy parts, along with no openings for foreign contaminants, especially mud. Made from stamped parts, the PK24/25's design was a mechanically and technically simple machine, but its performance was a different story.

Fielded en masses, the PK24/25 gained a very positive reputation for its ruggedness in any biome, whether it be the mud and rain of jungles, the snowy and frigid tundra and taiga, or the sand and dust of deserts. But since it was recoil-operated, recoil was more pronounced than its gas-operated counterparts, hence the nickname, "Black Donkey". Such recoil was partially negated, however, by the gun's heavy parts (especially its heavy bolt and overall weight), along with its users trained to fire in bursts (shoulder-fired) or hipfire on full automatic.

Haleckian Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, National Police, National Gendarmerie, and Bureau of Criminal Investigations all utilize the M13 Service Rifle.

The Saunders M13 was developed in 1962 as a replacement to the stripper clip using Leigh Arms M8 Service Rifle. The rifle was designed to be select fire, and was chambered in 5.56. It was adopted in 1963 by the Army and Air Force, and later the Navy and Marine Corps, as well as the National Police, Gendarmerie, and BCI.

Postby Zhouran » Sun Mar 08, 2020 5:52 am

The Zhouranese People's Army does not have a single 'main-service weapon' since they utilize a wide assortment of numerous 100% indigenous made-in-Zhouran firearms. Zhouranese firearms have been designed to be modular due to strong Zhouranese emphasis on adaptability and flexibility for fluid situations. The Zhouranese are aware that in order for soldiers to be in their peak performance, they must have access to the best arsenal possible since weaker weapons can bring down the potential performances of troops in the field.

Throughout the years, different Zhouranese assault rifles and battle rifles have been utilized as 'standard-service weapons', ranging from the Ningjing Type 62 7.62×39mm assault rifle, Ningjing Type 63 7.62×39mm assault rifle & Ningjing Type 62-200 7.62×54mm battle rifle, to the Ningjing Type 75 7.62×39mm assault rifle, Ningjing Type 82 5.45×39mm assault rifle & Ningjing Type 69-200 7.62×54mm battle rifle, to the Ningjing Type 01-100 7.62×39mm assault rifle, Ningjing Type 99-03 5.45×39mm assault rifle & Ningjing Type 77-04 7.62×54mm battle rifle, and the Ningjing Type 04-11 7.62×39mm assault rifle, Ningjing Type 09-100 5.45×39mm assault rifle & Ningjing Type 11 7.62×54mm battle rifle. Known widely for being reliability-oriented accuracy-friendly weapons that are fully-capable of operating in the harshest environmental conditions while being maintenance-friendly for troops especially in the battlefield, Zhouranese firearms are built rigorously to Zhouranese standards and are made to last for hundreds of years especially in the most austere situations. Various different rounds used by various Zhouranese firearm types ranging from pistols to assault rifles to battle rifles and ultimately to heavy machine guns are all made from brass casings. As a result, the numerous rounds utilized in Zhouran such as 7.62×39mm, 9×19mm, 5.45×39mm, 7.62×54mm, 12.7×108mm and 14.5×114mm are all built with brass casings due to their higher quality, superior chamber seal and more-malleable nature, thus resulting in reduced blowback into the chamber and the receiver. In comparison, cartridges made in other nations will sometimes or most of the times use cheaper-but-inferior steel casings instead.

Since late 1861, Zhouran has a gun culture that is influenced by the nation's passionate and intense warrior culture, which was created in 7 BC during the birth of the Silin Dynasty, as well as the long tradition of militarism in the nation and the long-standing practice of keeping weapons at home in order to be armed, well-trained and prepared. Firearms are owned for purposes including self-defense, hunting, sport, collecting, and military purposes. Sport-shooting and hunting are popular activities for both gun-owners and non-gun-owners in Zhouran.

Within Zhouranese society there is a strong emphasis towards the idea of soldiers being a 'rifleman'. While handguns are seen as the equivalent to the traditional ayanjiazhan knife/daggers, rifles on the other hand are seen as the as equivalent to the traditional ayanjiamu (one-handed)/ayanjiamujuela (two-handed) swords of ancient and medieval times. As a result, any Zhouranese soldier and gun-owner would treat a rifle the same way a warrior would treat a sword. Within Zhouranese society, an individual is expected be a rifleman if they are highly-proficient in marksmanship, thus one must accurately hit man-sized targets at distances ranging from five-hundred meters to one kilometer with high precision using only the iron-sights of a rifle and achieving a 90% first-round hit. Thus, similar to how ancient and medieval Zhouranese warriors were widely known for their highly-impressive rigorous swordsmanship, Zhouranese riflemen are well-known for being highly-skilled sharpshooters capable of eliminating their foes at extreme distances with extreme accuracy.

These weapons are mainly utilised by Black Numenorians and orcs of Angmar, some ice trolls use large war hammers and maces
Most of these weapons where mass produced to meet the growing demand of Angmars armies, though some notable weapons where Morguls blades. The Witch King of Angmar used those dark blades, they had many dark curses on them and inscriptions that only wraiths could see.

The army and military police use the M1 Garand as their main service weapon, although the AK-47 has been replacing the M1 Garand since 1957. It is estimated that by 1962 the AK-47 would have completely replaced the American rifle.

Since 2004, the Surya Systems SS-2 assault rifle has been the main service weapon of the Imperial Military. It's known to be a reliable and durable rifle for infantrymen. The weapon uses 5.56x45mm ammunition, fed from a typical 30-round box magazine or 60-round drum magazine. Its average fire rate is 750rpm and can be set to fire single-shots, 3-round bursts, or full-automatic, effective up to a range of 400m. The SS-2's carrying handle can be removed and replaced with an assortment of optical sights and additional picatinny rails on the handguard enable the use of attachments such as a vertical grip or a 40mm underbarrel grenade launcher.
