Organization: Astral Vanguard Government: Iromakuanhe Astral Commonwealth Designer: Solan Starforges Manufacturer: Solan Starworks Name: Solanii Linios Rifle (So-SLiR-01a) Type: Variable Speed Linear Rifle Role: Sniper Rifle Length: 49.74 inches Mass: 16.11 Ibs ROF: 240 RPM
Ammunition Types: 13×80mm SFS; 14×88mm RBS; 14×88mm CRC; 14×88mm OCC
Variable Speed Coilgun Gauss weapons work through in-sequence solenoids which generate electromagnetic forces to simultaneously attract and displace a ferromagnetic round, propelling it at tremendous speeds. The firing mechanism of the Linios is designed to allow the user to adjust speeds manually through an analogue dial near the sighting equipment to improve the weapon's flexibility and discretion.
Effective Range 1420 Meters Maximum Range: 3300 Meters Muzzle Velocity: Variable and User-Adjusted; 200 m/s to 1200 m/s Muzzle Blast: Little to none. At full speed, some users report up to 3nm of ablation on the outer casing, and a light blue trail. Firing Mode: Semi-Automatic Firing Capacity: 200 Shots per Capacitor Recoil: Little to none at lower velocities. Heavy at top velocity, but deployable stabilizer fins with GE Lift technology can reduce to low-velocity recoil levels.
Projection/ammo type: 13×80mm SFS Payload Type: Solid high-impact slug. Capacity: 25 rounds Damage: High penetrative power, strength dependent on velocity. Slug tends to overpenetrate, but large caliber and heavy mass leaves large exit wounds and staggers target. (Tier 1, Light Anti-Personnel-5)
Projection/ammo type: 14×88mm RBS Payload Type: Disposable repulsorfield emitter. Capacity: 23 rounds Damage: No penetrative capacity. On impact, initiates a 4000 N repulsor burst following user-configured geometry with a maximum volume of 8m^3, which can tear limbs apart, hammer torsos into red mist and launch the target dozens of meters. (Tier 4, Light Anti-Armor)
Projection/ammo type: 14×88mm CRC Payload Type: Sharpened chitino-plas resinate thread canister. Capacity: 23 rounds Damage: Low penetration. Canister spins chitinous resins into razor sharp thread and injects it into the target at high velocities, shredding internal structures and mincing tissues into a fine paste. Ineffective against armored targets. (Tier 3, Heavy Anti-Personnel)
Projection/ammo type: 14×88mm OCC Payload Type: OMDE compound canister, VANDR-scale. Capacity: 23 rounds Damage: Saturates point of impact with specialized fungal cloud that secretes the OMDE compound in contact with metallic substances. See article for details.
Safety: Fire Mode Selector: Stabilizer Fins: Camouflage: Attachment Hard Points: Scope can be replaced with other optics.
Field Maintenance Procedure: Wipe and clean after every mission, taking care to scrub the barrel down and all moving parts. Capacitors and some electronics may have to be replaced every few months of use.
