Discharge Information

Projection/ammo type: Metallic Slugs, Conventional Ammunition (Including the case).

Firing Mechanism: Ammunition is fed into the chamber by a rotating feed wheel system which pulls the round from the magazine or other feed source. When the round is chambered, an internal sensor within the firing assembly acknowledges the chambered round, allowing for a signal to be transmitted from the trigger when it is pulled. When the trigger of the trigger assembly is pulled, the hammer of the trigger assembly contacts a mechanical component within the primary section of the rifle. The hammer-to-component interaction closes a circuit, confirming that the weapon is activated. Power is fed from a power cell to a pair of magnetic rails which line the chamber and barrel. The metallic slug is then propelled out of the weapon.

Caliber: The weapon can be adjusted to accept munitions ranging from .5mm to 13mm and lengths from 10mm to 80mm.

⚠ Ranges listed are applicable in 1g of gravity

Visual Description

History

The mutli-caliber railgun rifle has been designed by the Lorath Matriarchy and Lorath Self Defense Force to be fielded by infantry and some power-armor forces. Due to the nature of the Lorath, the rifle was accepted with remorse and regret, thus the rifle was dubbed with the title “Soh'mit Dy'c” or “Cursed Tool”. Despite the regrettable need to utilize such a weapon, soldiers who are issued the rifle treat the weapon with the same respect they treat their melee weapons which they still wear even as they field their rifles.
