66mm M202 LAW Munitions

Overview


The 66mm rockets are typically loaded in single use M72 disposable launchers however their rockets are able to be removed through disassembly of the launcher and loaded into the M202 Launcher. While not packing the punch of its bigger relatives like the 84mm M136 launcher it does offer a relatively light, rapid fire anti personnel and structure weapon.

65mm High Velocity Direct Fire Grenade

Overview


The 65mm High Velocity Direct Fire Grenade is a extremely high pressure grenade munition developed by SynTech Arms to be fired from a man portable grenade rifle called the DFGS-60 which can interchangably fire a mixture of 60 or 65mm grenades with a simple barrel change.

The DFGS system was developed in 2013 to provide soldiers an offensive weapon system capable of rapid firing explosive ordnance at ranges far exceeding the maximum capabilities of more traditional grenade launchers such as the M203, M32 and M320. Seeing the potential of the weapon system, the United States Marine Corps adopted it as a replacement to the M32 Rotary Grenade Launcher.

Anti-materiel Ammunition

25x137mm Bushmaster

Overview


The 25x137mm Bushmaster is a primarily vehicle utilised auto-cannon cartridge with a wide range of ammunition that has been developed for this munition, providing weapons that utilise it with the capability to defeat the majority of armored vehicles it is likely to encounter, up to and including some light tanks. The ammunition used in the M242 Bushmaster Chain Cannon may also be used in a variety of weapons such as the GAU-12 Equalizer, the French Giat M811, or the Swiss Oerlikon KBA weapon system.

Despite its wide use in vehicles, it is almost never utilised in man portable weapons due to the power, weight and size of the munition, however one such weapon does exist, the Laku Solutions LRAMW-25 (Light Recoil Anti Materiel Weapon-25mm), which is a 39 kilogram anti-materiel rifle designed to give the capability for defeating light vehicles, powered infantry armor, exo-skeletons and mechas to an infantry platoon.

.45-70 Government

Overview


The .45-70, also known as .45-70 Government or .45-70 Govt. is an extremely powerful cartridge developed in the 1870's. It is primarily used for big game hunting out of lever action rifles or big bore revolvers such as the Magnum Research BFR. Even today it still competes with newer "ultra magnum" cartridges such as .500 Smith & Wesson Magnum, this is mostly due to its large case that can accomodate extremely large and heavy projectiles along with enough powder to sling them at high velocities - this thing is a monster, anything that ends up on the wrong end of it doesn't live to tell the tale.

.510 Beck

Overview


.510 Beck is a specialised cartridge designed for the AR-10 rifle platform that offers loadings from 200gr to 1050gr super heavy loads. It offers everything from accurate precision loads for longer range shooting all the way to short range cartridges for punching through tough animals and even body armor.

While typically a civilian cartridge with nothing particularly 'different' about it, SynTech Arms recently partnered up with Knight Armament Company to create their Special Airbursting Rifle System and decided on using a KAC SR-25 as a basis for the design. While looking for a cartridge that offered both realiability in an AR-10 and payload potential, SynTech came upon the .510 Beck and used it as the basis for their specialised RDX and LXT experimental munitions.

RDX Nanoexplosives and LXT Nanoexplosives were tested to see which yielded better payload efficiency, LXT Nanoexplosives were determined to yield the best blast radius and were used in SynTechs patented airbursting .510 Beck munition. However these projectiles proved to be too heavy for 'traditional' propulsion methods to be effective without making the projectiles entirely useless so SynTech paired a magnectic rail accelerator to the weapon platform to magnetically propell the projectiles at high velocities as well as gives a velocity boost to other more traditional projectiles.

.458 SOCOM

Overview


The .458 SOCOM (11.63×40mm) is a moderately large round designed for a specialized upper receiver that can be mounted on any AR-15 pattern lower receiver. The 300-grain (19 g) round offers a supersonic muzzle velocity of 1,900 ft/s (580 m/s) and 2,405 ftlbf (3,261 J), similar to a light .45-70 but with a much smaller case. Prompted by the lack of power offered by the 5.56 NATO cartridge used in the M4 carbine and the M16 rifle, the .458 SOCOM came about from informal discussion of members of the special operations command, specifically Task Force Ranger's experience that multiple shots were required to incapacitate members of the opposing force in Mogadishu during Operation Gothic Serpent. Many Somalis would chew the drug Khat all day and the effects of the drug would both curb their appetite (in a country plagued by famine) and increase their pain tolerance.

Compared to similar big bore cartridges designed for the AR-15 – such as the .450 Bushmaster, .458 SOCOM, and .50 Beowulf – the 45 Raptor offers higher velocity bullets, a flatter shooting trajectory and the ability to reliably feed hollow point ammunition. It is able to fit into 7.62x51 magazines with some modification, making it easy for companies to make rifles capable of firing the cartridge without the need to design and develop a specialised magazine.

.338 Norma Magnum

Overview


.338NM (Norma Magnum) is a medium machine gun calibre designed to bridge the gap between 7.62x51 and .50BMG. It is effective up to 2500m for accurate fire unlike the 7.62x51 which is only good for up 1500m accurately. In addition it retains its velocity and stopping power out to its accurate distance making it a highly effective round at close and far distances. As of 2020 is it currently being pushed as a replacement for .50 BMG in the anti-materiel role, as such a replacement for the MK211 RAUFOSS round has been developed to give the round capabilities similar to that of the .50 BMG.

.270 Winchester Short Magnum

Overview


image.png
The 270 Winchester Short Magnum or 270 WSM is a short, magnum cartridge created by necking down the .300 Winchester Short Magnum and fitting it with a .277 caliber bullet. The correct name for the cartridge, is 270 WSM, without a decimal point. It is a member of the Winchester Short Magnum family of cartridges.

The 270 WSM is an improvement over the older 270 Winchester providing higher velocity with bullets of the same weight, and thus a flatter trajectory and more energy. Velocities tend to be about 250 ft/s (76 m/s) faster, in a cartridge that is shorter and can therefore be used in a shorter action resulting in a more compact rifle if desired.

Its prefered use case is hunting and long range precision shooting, it has seen little to no military adoption beyond small use cases in special mission units. As such there are no armor penetrating or specialist projectiles, with only factory match and hunting loads available

.30-06 Springfield

Overview


The .30-06 Springfield cartridge (pronounced "thirty-aught-six") or 7.62×63mm was introduced to the United States Army in 1906 and later standardized; it remained in use until the late-1970s. The ".30" refers to the caliber of the bullet in inches. The "06" refers to the year the cartridge was adopted, 1906. With the help of modern ammunition development and manufacturing process's the .30-06 has been able to be revived into limited service by certain special operations units. Thanks to the size of the projectile and the case size the .30-06 is able to be loaded with heavier projectiles and more powder than 7.62x51 can be.

T99 Anti-aircraft Munition

T99 Anti-aircraft munitions were designed to be mixed with traditional tracers to assist with marking aircraft. It packs a small explosive in the tip that makes a highly visible explosion.

T100 HEIAP

T100 High Explosive Incendiary Armor Piercing Munition is a modern evolution of the T99 Munition. The T100 was designed by the Commonwealth Joint Task Force Weapons Research & Development Group to serve as an option for long range light anti-vehicle tasks sporting a duplex munition with a high explosive tip followed by an incendiary armor piercing projectile.

D.U.D.S.

.30-06 Depleted Uranium Discarding Sabot was an experimental armor piercing munition developed for the .30-06 in the 1960's however it was quickly discarded due to the radiation emited from the munition. Due to the highly dense depleted uranium sabot the ammunition is extremely heavy, as such it has to be paired with a powerful accelerant. However CJTF-WRDG has begun producing the ammunition again, use at your own discretion.

Overview


The 6.5mm Grendel (6.5×39mm) is an intermediate cartridge designed by Arne Brennan, Bill Alexander and Janne Pohjoispää as a low-recoil, high-accuracy cartridge specifically for the AR-15 platform at medium/long range (200–800 yard). The 6.5mm Grendel design goal was to create an effective 200–800 yard STANAG magazine-length cartridge for the AR-15 that surpassed the performance of the native 5.56mm NATO/.223 Remington cartridge. Constrained by the dimension of the magazines, the Grendel designers decided to use a shorter, larger diameter case for higher powder volume while allowing space for long, streamlined, high-ballistic coefficient (BC) bullets.

The .224 Valkyrie (5.6×41 mm) cartridge is a .22 caliber (5.6 mm) rimless bottlenecked intermediate rifle cartridge, developed by Federal Premium Ammunition. .224 Valkyrie uses the same bullet diameter as 5.56×45mm NATO and a necked down larger case from the 6.8 SPC, allowing for heavier bullets and higher muzzle velocity.

The .224 Valkyrie was designed to fill a need for long range small platform modern sporting rifles, the .224 Valkyrie was developed by Federal by taking their proven 6.8 SPC case and necking it down to utilize a .224 diameter projectile. Prior to this, the ability to compete at long range (1000+ meters or yards) was dominated in competition by  .308 Winchester and 6.5mm Creedmoor.

.224 offers a lightweight, highly accurate alternative to 7.62x51 and 6.5 Creedmoor.

5.56 NATO

Overview


5.56 NATO (5.56x45mm NATO) is the standard cartridge for all NATO countries as well as a large number of non-NATO countries. 

M855 (Also called FMJ)


M855 is a steel penetrator tipped round with a lead core and copper jacket. It is the predecessor to the M855A1 round. It is average at flesh damage and armour penetration. It has the following variations:

M855A1 (Also called EPR)


M855A1 is an upgraded version of the M855 round with improved velocities and armour penetration capabilities. It has the following variations:

Mk318 (Also called SOST)


The Mk318 is an open tipped penetrator round designed to inflict high levels of soft tissue damage. It moves slightly slower than M855A1 and is very ineffective at armour penetration. It has no additional variations.

Mk262 (Also called SBLR)


Mk262 SPR/SBLR (Special Ball Long Range) is a hollow point match grade round designed for long range accuracy. It has better performance than M855A1 at range as well as better soft tissue damage. It however has poor armour penetration capabilities. It has no additional variations.

M995 AP (Armour Piercing)


M995 AP is a armour piercing tungsten core giving it exceptional armour piercing capabilities. It has average performance on par with M855A1 however it is inferior at range due to the projectile being heavier than it's counterparts. It has no additional variations.

M193 Ball


M193 ball is the first type of ammunition first adopted for the M16 platform. M193 is higher velocity than most 5.56 however it possesses inferior armour penetration capabilities to M855. However due to its high velocity and relatively light weight construction it has an extreme tendency to 'tumble' upon impact, resulting in vicious wounds. It has the following variations:

Subsonic


Subsonic 5.56 is designed for stealth operations. It does not produce a supersonic crack and is quieter to AI making you harder to spot when shooting. It has average performance on par with M855A1 however it falls off massively at range due to its subsonic speed.

Intermediate Rifle Ammunition

5.45x39

Overview


With the need for an intermediate higher velocity cartridge to compete with America's relatively new 5.56x45 Russia developed the 5.45x39 cartridge along with the development of the AK-74 to fire it. The performance and capabilities of the new round greatly outweighed those of the antiquated 7.62x39 round and in turn led to the 7.62 round being pushed out of service with the 5.45x39 becoming the new standard round used by Russia.

7N6


7N6 was the first variant of 5.45x39 adopted in 1974. It is a FMJ projectile with similar performance to 5.56x45 ammunition. 

This round has the following variants:

7N6M


7N6M is a modernised variant of 7N6 with the M literally standing for "Modernised". 7N6M possesses improved penetration capabilities over its predecessor. While it has better penetrative capabilities it does not out perform 5.56x45, almost all variants of 5.56x45 greatly out perform it in armour and barrier penetration.

7N10


7N10 is a further improved penetration round which was developed in an attempt to compete with 5.56x45. Although it is a massive improvement over 7N6M it is still outperformed by most 5.56 variants.

7N22


7N22 is an armour penetration round designed with the specific purpose of defeating modern body armours (at the time as it was adopted in 1998). The round was designed with a steel perpetrator in the bullet and possesses similar capabilities to that of 5.56x45 M855A1.

7U1


7U1 is a subsonic variant on 7N6 with a much heavier bullet and reduced powder charge to bring the speed of the round down to subsonic speeds to work better with suppressors and eliminate supersonic cracks. However the performance is greatly effected by the change.

.264 USA

Overview


.264 USA is a precision cartridge originally designed for the US Army Marksmanship Unit, it is larger than 5.56x45 and slightly smaller than 7.62x51 and fits in AR-15 Actions and magazines allowing for lighter rifles and magazines. Since its original conception it has been turned into a combat cartridge with various loadings for different jobs, additionally following recent trends it utilises a polymer case which allows for a lighter combat loadout than comparible cartridges such as 6.5 Creedmoor.

The round performs similarly to 6.5 Creedmoor but in a smaller package and is considered a 'magnumised' 6.5 Grendel.

EPR


Steel-core Enhanced Performance Round similar to M855A1/M80A1. Multipurpose round with all round performance.

Has red tracer variant.

SOST


SOST Barrier-Blind loading, offering both hollowpoint capabilities as well as soft barrier penetration such as timber, sheet metal and buildings. Poor AP performance despite decent barrier penetration capabilities.

Has red tracer variant.

RRLP


Reduced-Ricochet-Limited-Penetration Frangible designed for urban operations where collateral must be minimised. Fragments heavily within soft tissue offering decent damage. Intentionally poor penetration capabilities due to the frangible nature of the projectile.

OTM


Open-Tip-Match loading optimized for long range combat.

Has red tracer variant.

Subsonic


Designed for stealth operations. It does not produce a supersonic crack and is quieter to enemies making you harder to spot when shooting. 

Has green tracer variant, green tracer chosen to mimic Russian barium salt tracers to induce confusion in hostile forces.

6.5x38mm Caseless

Overview


The 6.5x38mm is a caseless munition which consists of a projectile nestled within a circular block of propellant. Unlike it's predecessor caseless ammunition, It has resolved issues with cook offs and feeding problems. The 6.5x38 is modelled heavily after the 6.5 Grendel round, albeit much lighter and available in numerous military loadings such as AP.

Prior to the collapse of the US military, the CmmG MX series chambered in 6.5x38 was in the process of mass adoption, with a vast majority of frontline units having been supplied before ultimate collapse. That paired with adoption by other small nations has led to a relatively decent supply of them globally.
