Assorted Small Arms by CryonIndustries Assorted Small Arms by CryonIndustries
Top Left
Izo T-40 Carbine
Weapon Type: Assault Carbine
Functionality: A compact, portable LIM carbine with a high capacity magazine is standard-fitted to the weapon, carries 80 rounds and features a folding stock for greater portability. Great for tank crews and vehicle engineers, but limited range due to coil length.
Ammo Count: 80 Tungsten Sabot rounds
Rate of Fire: 600-700 RPM

Top Right
Phytar Advancements "Overseer"
Weapon Type: Phasic Phydium Automatic Support Weapon
Functionality: Provides excellent fire support and has little to no potential for overheating due to its liquid thermal ventilation system. A complex weapon, it utilizes two firing channels (what would be barrels for a ballistics weapon), at alternating sequences for firing. This does lead to some climb from the high-velocity phydium particles, but it does do the job.
Ammo Count: 42 Phydium Bolts [0.2 MJ per Bolt] per charged power cell
Rate of Fire: 900 RPM

Denar-Technologies PDW 'Vostok Ultra'
Functionality: A small and portable personal defense weapon, the Vostok Ultra boasts three things: heavy-hitting rounds, recoil dampening, and a compact frame to fit it all. Excellent choice for breach-and-clear operations or for highly mobile units.
Ammo Count: 36 Hammerstrike Sabot Slugs [6x38mm, Hypersonic Velocities]
Rate of Fire: 950-1200 RPM, Variable based upon configuration

Bottom Right
Titan Industrial Science "Hephaestus" HVAR-
Weapon Type: High-velocity Assault Rifle
Functionality: featuring a forward-sliding assembly and an oversized internal magazine, the Hephaestus is an unusual weapon with its internalized magazine and extremely high capacitance and energy transfer efficiency. It has been recently fielded in 95 A.F. (After Fragmentation and division of powers), to great effect. Its rounds are long enough to perforate most enemy infantry shielding and cause some serious internal damage after entry, since the round design is based upon the Hephaestus vertebra round. The vertebra round has a tungsten core with small gaps along the length of the core, which when entering solid matter, will proceed to flatten inside the target, taking chunks of flesh with it.
Ammo Count: 32 Vertebra Rounds [7x48mm Tungsten Sabot, divided core]
Rate of Fire: 820 RPM, Fixed

Your PDW and carbine look sick. Though from the way the carbine looks like, you won't be getting much range with a barrel of an inch. If those were an Airsoft gun though, hell yes I'd buy.

You are looking at the magazine backwards on the T-40. It has a barrel length much closer to 8-9 inches. Look at my most recent Izo Ballistics panel. There is an updated version of the Izo T-40 with reloading diagram, etc. It is called the Izo T-20-M2.

Ohh, so helical like magazine, huh? And sounds good. I'll check them out.

Of these, I would say the Vostok is the most reallistic-looking and believable in design.

Then I'm not doing my job :P

They're coil guns from a science-fiction universe.

But the Vostok uses cartridges, right? Then It is OK.

No combustion involved. The sabot is meant for electromagnetic induction to provide a delivery mechanism for the projectile. The Vostok has a high-capacity power cell in the grip that needs to be replaced after every 2,000 rounds or so. The high density and energy transfer efficiency rates (in comparison to Earth's coil guns) of the coils in these ballistic projectile weapons means that they can be used in a vacuum and in other hostile environments in which traditional combustion-based delivery mechanisms are less than desirable. Due to the high thermo-electrical discharge from the weapons themselves, they are detectable on specialized peripheral awareness enhancement sensors equipped to infantry electronics. The thermo-electrical discharge also produces a muzzle flash of ionized air (or in space, no muzzle flash). Heatsinks added to the weapons reduce thermal profile, but take up space along the coil, thus reducing ballistics velocity.

In other words, that comment is somewhat true. The sabot does encompass the slug/projectile, but it is meant to launch the projectile via magnetic forces. The sabots are typically made of synthesized cobalt. The properties of tungsten ensure that the rounds maintain solidity even after being launched from a hot coil, although the tungsten projectile by itself is pretty much incapable of being fired without magnetic assistance, hence the cobalt sabot.

The sabots split after exiting the coil, leaving a lot of spent sabot halves around after a firefight.

Thanks for the comment, btw :D

The reason I inquired is because you mention the round type and rpm for the Vostok but not the others. Therefore, I thought that it didn't operate on coil technology. Why is cobalt a good element to use for sabots? And how often do the magazines have to be replaced?

It's a fairly common ferromagnetic material, often used in alloyed magnets such as samarium-cobalt magnets. The cobalt is synthesized utilizing sub-atomic modification of similar elements in specialized conditions. While neodymium is a stronger magnet, neodymium is typically used in the super-condensed coils of the weapons. Synthesized cobalt is much more disposable.

The issue is not so much appearance as ergonomics of design. The Vostok is sleek, futuristic-looking, decidedly cool, but most importantly, also but functional looking in appearance. It makes you believe it's real, or that it would work well if someone were to build it. (So it's my favorite out of these.)

The other guns though all have issues in this area. They're either prohibitively bulky (The Overseer in particular seems to be about the size and shape of a briefcase), seem to have oddly clunky dimensions, (the Hephaestus feels too "tall" above the trigger group), or it seems like their design has elements that would get in the way of a firer operating the weapon smoothly and without hassle- such as how the huge, forward-located drum magazine on the T-40 would get completely in the way of a person's hand trying to hold the foregrip, not to mention that it looks like carrying around thermos-sized spare mags for it would be quite a pain!

Edit: Apologies, in the first sentence of that post I meant "not so much -style- as ergonomics."

Normally I would continue to argue if I perceived your feedback to be of little value, but you've provided a well-thought-out and substantiated argument that gives me some direction. Thanks. I'll try and take this into consideration for the humanoid weaponry.
