IDSE-42 Rifle & Attachments

Post by Luciana Endivain » 2012-04-29 18:25

Designation:
IDSE-RR-42 Assault Rifle (R-42 for short), IDSE-RG-62 "Thumper" Grenade Launcher and the IDSE-MK-3 "Kuati Grove" Blast Cannon.

Purpose:
To create a blaster rifle for mercenaries, military's, law enforcement or other prospective buyers looking for a fast firing gun that packs more punch than the R-90 carbine. Along with the rifle will be a pair of attachments geared to aid soldiers: a grenade launcher and a small blast cannon.

Application:
Like nearly all IDS weapons, the RR-42 assault rifle uses the dual XCiter design to increase the rate of fire. Unlike the R-90, this rifle does not fire as fast but the trade-off is both a longer range and higher power per shot. Because of its size, the RR-42 also features an underslung rail system that can fit either a grenade launcher or a small blast cannon.

This project also includes the underslung mounted grenade launcher and blast cannon attachments that can be fitted and used with the rifle.

Schedule:
2 weeks design
2 weeks prototyping
4 weeks testing

Since the dual-parallel-XCiter concept has been proven to work and the galaxy has been making blasters for generations now, designing and configuring weapons from this point forward will be much simpler and faster.

Technical Specifications:
Name/Type: RR-42 Rifle
Designer/Manufacturer: Luciana Endivain / Intragalactic Defense Systems
Designation: Assault Rifle
Size: 82.1 cm
Mass: 4.5 kg
Effective Range: 400 m
Fire Modes: Single, Semi-Auto, 3-shot burst, full-auto.
Damage Rating: 55
Magazine: 800 Charges (from plasma gas cell). 300 shots (extended powerpak) or 100 shots (standard powerpak)
Ammunition: Blaster Powercell
Standard Price: 2,100 Cr
Special: Top rail mount allow for a variety of attachments including scopes, lights or laser sighters. Underslung rail can attach either a grenade launcher or blast cannon (and not just the ones listed below) if the user has a strong preference to another design.

Where the R-90 was designed to be a compact, fast firing carbine, the RR-42 is meant to be a larger, more powerful but just as fast firing assault rifle. Once again, using the parallel XCiter design philosophy, the RR-42 relies heavily on the “put out as many shots in as short a time as possible” mantra.

Because of the larger size compared to that of the R-90 carbine, heat sinks and the use of special metals allow the gun to maintain a high rate of fire. While not as fast firing as the R-90, it compensates for higher powered, slightly more accurate shots.

Bulpup configuration maintains accuracy while keeping overall gun length and weight down. Also, like the Shieldbreaker sniper rifle, the assault rifle uses the same free floating barrel, XCiters and actuator mechanism to help dampen recoil and give that higher level of accuracy than what is found in the carbine.

Upper and lower rail mounts allow for the fitting of various extra systems such as scopes, laser sighters, glow rods and grenade launchers or blast cannons.

Name/Type: RG-62 "Thumper" Grenade Launcher
Designer/Manufacturer: Luciana Endivain / Intragalactic Defense Systems
Designation: Underslung grenade launcher attachment
Effective Range: 150 m
Fire Modes: Single
Damage Rating: Various
Magazine: 1 (shotgun style loading system)
Ammunition: From the following list:
  1. High explosive. Powerful explosive grenade. Good against armoured targets. 100 DR.
  2. Acid Compound (Terridax-101): 15 meter area of effect. Acid corrodes though most materials but is especially effective against organic matter (like flesh).
  3. Fragmentation: 8 meter blast radius. 42 DR
  4. 3x3 Special: Stunned immediately, next round incapacitation begins, knocked out for 20D minutes, affects a radial area of 3 meters.
  5. Plank gas: 5D over 10D rounds, 13 m area of effect
  6. Rocket, unguided. 80 DR, 2 meter area of effect.
Standard Price: 1,200 Cr

Capable of lobbing several different grenade types. Can also fire small, unguided AP rockets. Modeled after the grenade launcher found on the T-27A2 "Blackjack" Riot Suppression Rifle.

Name/Type: MK-3 "Kuati Grove" Blast Cannon
Designer/Manufacturer: Luciana Endivain / Intragalactic Defense Systems
Designation: Underslung blast cannon attachment
Effective Range: 15 m
Fire Modes: Single shot
Damage Rating: 45 (point blank range of 10 meters)
Magazine: 5
Ammunition: Small Blaster Powercell
Standard Price: 1,500 Cr

A small, compact blast cannon fitted underneath the main barrel of assault rifles, the Kauti Grove stores a paltry five shots on its single powerpak. When fired, the cannon fires a single, high powered shot with goes through a special crystal that disperses the single shot into numerous smaller ones. While each shot is lacking in power individually, being hit by enough of them can be very damaging, inflecting serious wounds if not death. Its limitations include the very short range of the attachment but this isn’t much of a limitation as it is designed for close-quarter combat such as urban fighting, room clearing and the like.

This device is modeled after the Crystal Blaster Rifle.

Weaknesses:
  • Like all rifles, the R-42 is larger and cumbersome in close quarters.
  • Grenade launcher or blast cannon attachments add extra weight to the rifle which could be good or bad.
  • Individual bolts aren't as powerful as what might be found on more moderate guns. This is deliberate as the aim is to generate a rapid stream of bolts.
Proposed Upgrades:
  • Increased damaged potential.

Sounds interesting...*looks expectantly*

This is well written. The goal is to create an AR companion to the R-90 Carbine with some useful accessories.

Okay, the weapon will be using the signature Dual-XCiter tech. This is reasonable and acceptable. Range and power are adjusted to balance with the fire rate. Proposed attachments are good.

Schedule seems appropriate given IDS/SIN resources and expertise in this area.

Good clarification for the attachments and characteristics of the weapon.

Good description! How many bolts does the single high-powered bolt become fragmented into? Can you please make a note somewhere in the stats or description? Thanks!

Alrighty, looking at Wookieepedia, the gas cartridge is good for 500 shots and it's a carbine. In the case of this gun, the 800 would be the shots provided by the plasma gas cartridge. For powercell shot numbers, a standard powerpack would provide 100 shots while an extended clip will provide 300 like the RC-90 carbine.

That's a good question actually as the database doesn't really elaborate on that detail at all. I imagine it's a lot of very tiny fragmented shots? 10? 50? 100? I honestly can't say, I just thought the concept sounded nifty and useful for something to be turned into a blast cannon attachment. I'm sorry, but I won't be able to elaborate on that detail at all... :?

EDIT - What I did do was make a sort of compromise. I'll give the DR assuming the target is at point-blank... What point blank is, uh... close enough to be hit by a majority of the shots?

Okay, that is good! That aspect is Approved now.

No problem! It is a very nifty idea! I was just wondering if there was something I missed there. Let's assume that point-blank is 10 m. And that effectiveness is reduced by half at 15 m. Does that seem okay with you? Sorry, if that sounds technical.
