Progress Level: 5 / 6
From the archives of the BlackHammer Project comes the new state of the art in projectile weapon systems.
Part 2 of the BlackHammer Firearms series presents four major models of conventional firearms seen across the globe in the early 21st Century. These weapons, with full d20 stats, are the cutting edge of their era, and exist on the cusp of progress levels 5 and 6. Each firearm is fully detailed with history and design notes and is suitable for games set from 5 minutes into the future at the end of Progress Level 5 to games set in the heart of Progress Level 6 and beyond.
This volume details four distinct series of firearms, along with the new ammunition types that some of them are chambered in.
The AMT 1159 handguns are heavy-bore handguns chambered in the Benelli 11.5mm caseless round designed for heavy subguns. These big boys are on par with the Desert Eagles, but are made in America by Arcadia Machine & Tool. 2 Models of this firearm are detailed in this document.
The C&S Elites are a series of duty handguns initially chambered in 10mm ACP, but now available in a variety of chamberings, including the venerabl .45 ACP, .40 S&W, .41 AE and .357 SIG as well as the newest models chambered in Heckler & Koch's new 6.5mm SO-2. The Elite is available in two basic configurations (long and compact) as well as the Model 16 machine pistols (pictured above). 20 models and variants of this firearm are detailed in this document.
The C&S Model 6 served as the Canadian Armed Forces assault rifle for nearly 25 years before being replaced recently by the Mark XII weapon system. With all these Model 6 units now leaving service, they have become available for private security forces, foreign militaries and even some civilian sales. 11 models and variants of this weapon system are included in this document.
The Ingram Model 99 is the newest submachine gun design from Ingram, and is chambered in the ultra-heavy Benelli 11.5mm caseless round. These subguns are seeing use in private security forces world-wide, and are now being considered for the African Union naval trials. 6 Models of this series are included in this document.
This thirteen-page PDF (plus cover and OGL) describes the technology and design of these weapon systems as well as where they are used and by whom. Each gun and variant has full d20 stats useable in any modern or future d20 game.
