The Krakke Imperial Army is issued the Colt .45. The Commissioned Officers are issued a slightly modified .45 that carries hellfire rounds, which are solely for summary executions. Essentially, it turns it into a one-handed shotgun.
OBEY, WORK, PROSPER.

Evil, fascist, hyperindustrialized, dieselpunk, militarized nation that is ruled by the High Autocrat with an iron fist, along with the help of his Nationalists, secret police that make the Gestapo look like your best friends. Everything illegal is an executable offense, IF you are lucky. And everything beyond the bare minimum to survive is illegal.

We are driven by the Machine...

I created this nation with the sole purpose of making the absolute worst dictatorship I could. I do not condone anything IC with Krakke.

I like your idea, the accuracy of the delayed blowback operation combined with the accuracy of the 6.8spc would be great. I think the real future holds a weapon similar to this. Arcas special forces must procure some for testing. It may serve well as a back up weapon for tank crews.

However this weapon is not in any way a PDW as it uses rifle ammo, carrying spare mags would be cumbersome and unjustifiable considering you already have a primary weapon. This weapon is an ShortBarreledRifle or SMG. However i must question how you deal with the muzzle flash from a 6? inch barrel. This weapon must double as a flare gun. It bares much resemblence to the Knights armament PDW which uses a heavy 6x35mm round from a 7 or 10in barrel to provide greater energy at short range, similar to the 6.8
Image


Galla considers the American M4 carbine a PDW, along with the Magpul PDW (which uses 5.56x45).

Same overall appearance as this, but replace the striker with a hammer farther back, make the handle less awkwardly curved and put a magazine through it, it is rifled, and it is made of composite materials. It still fires a large slug, but it is now a 12x36mm. Yes, it is ridiculously large for standard issue, but anyone you hit won't be retaliating, and it is brutally simple and reliable. It is double-action, however, so, if your wrist can handle it, you can pump off rounds almost as quickly as a semi-auto.

The Actalius Arms Model 1988, official designation M1988A1:

Image

The sidearm of all branches of Actalius' armed forces. Ambidextrous safety, mag release, slide catch, with tritium sights. 5 inch steel barrel. Parkerized steel slide, polymer frame with wrap-around stippled grips. Chambered in .45 ACP, rated for P+ AP rounds. Not shown here is the rail which can be screwed on under the barrel in less than a minute for mounting lights, lasers, etc.

13+1 round capacity, double stacked magazines.


If an Actalian soldier has to use his pistol, chances are something has gone horribly wrong. That's why the "'88" as it's affectionately called is such a high quality weapon. With it, a soldier can fight his or her way to safety.

The TBS-93 nicknamed the 'Tripest' multi-round munitions sidearm is a marvel of Galnosian firearms technology. It is both a close and medium ranged weapon, as it uses two .45cal rounds and one 16 gauge buckshot shell, or two 16 gauge buckshot shell with one .45 cal round. How it works is there are six chambers that stay in place, with hammers on them all. When it fires, it empties out three of the chambers and the barrels spin to the next set of chambers, along with a small path for the force of the next pull of the trigger to hit the next sequence of hammers. It is generally reliable in a combat-situation but the mechanism to make the next set of rounds fire off is generally very prone to failure with improper maintenance. This means that the Tripest Sidearm is absolutely devastating, and even reliable, but only if you do excellent maintenance to this bad boy, otherwise you'll be dead with a loaded gun wondering why you're where your at.

The DHEP Military uses the Kova .40S&W handgun, made in Kvltar.
Some special forces operators however opt to use LY-46 Hellhammer .50 cal handguns
if they expect to face heavily armored enemies.

Most troops carry the AP4 pistol, modeled on the HK USP .45 Tactical. The Marine Corps are beginning to use the .40cal AP5s, based on the Glock 18, with extended magazines.

The Empire of Vytalus Imperial Legion does not regard pistols as especially effective infantry weapons, and usually restricts their issue to those whose role does not permit or require the carrying of the standard HK-416 carbine. The standard pistol issued in this case is an unlicensed 9mm Sig P226 copy, built at the Vytalian Arsenal of Stolen Technology.

Police and Internal Security forces utilize a domestically produced M1911 clone chambered in .45 ACP, while the military utilizes a domestically produced pistol based upon the Glock 20 10mm or the Glock 22 .40 SW.

All hand guns are equipped with rails and night sights.

In my country, the soldiers have no use for side arms, instead they are given a garden rake and 10 "instaroid" (fast acting steroids) syringes.

Dahlonega's military forces have yet to replace the Browning Hi-Power, also known as the P-35 or the Browning Automatic Pistol.

Image

In some cases, members of Special Operations Forces units will opt instead to carry the Colt .45, which is an equally reliable weapon.

Just a side note: the Colt is pretty redundant in a world where 12-round .45 weapons are not uncommon. Kimber and HK spring to mind.
