The Sickle is a 6mm assault rifle designed in YE40 meant for infantry use against lightly armored, and unarmored targets. It is manufacture by Section 6 and FSC:FMS, and is used by USO forces. However, it was grandfathered into use by New Dusk Conclave, and manufacturered by Black Wing Enterprises.
Section 6 decided it needed a lighter rifle then the Maverick for on base security and for less well equipped hostile forces. So in mid-YE40 the Section 6 weapons department came up with and tested the design for the S6-6AS, or “Sickle” assault rifle.
Below are the logistics of manufacturing and design creation of the Sickle assault rifle.
The Sickle is very block in design and has its magazines loaded into the stock. it has a rectangular upper part in the front where the few electronics in the rifle go. the rest of the receiver is rather level, and a flash light is built into the lower part of the receiver. The lowest part of the rifle is the bottom of the stock where the magazine is located, as well as the grip and trigger.
Below are the characteristics of the reaction of the weapon when the trigger is pulled and is fired.
