U.S.O.-P1

This weapon was created by Jack Pine, in the year YE 39, for use by the Skyguard .

About the U.S.O.-P1

The Skyguard did not have a standard sidearm for its pilots. Jack Pine designed the U.S.O.-P1 in response to this. Seeing as the pilots would need a reliable sidearm for the possible and dangerous event that they had been shot down in a combat zone. The U.S.O.-P1 provides high stopping power, easy handling, and a fast cycling means for self-defense in a compact package.
