MPAR MK-IX by ScrewfaceRomeo MPAR MK-IX by ScrewfaceRomeo
CITC designation: MPAR MK IX

UN designation: ART-9X

Sh'ari designation: T'aya sar u'man (literally, angry human machinegun)

Caliber: 8X40mm Russian

Capacity: 75 rounds

Action: rotating bolt Direct Impingement gas operation

Fire control: Semi, full auto

The Multi-Purpose Assault Rifle Mark IX rifle is the bread and butter assault weapon of the CITC Militia. Based on designs produced by the Russian military in an attempt to modernize (an unsuccessful one, needless to say), the MPAR is made of stamped aluminum and cheap molded composites and uses a direct impingement gas system. Chambered for 75 rounds in the 8x40mm Russian loaded from a top-mounted helical drum, the MPAR was designed for massed fire and was ridiculed by US and UN Marines as only suitable for "spray 'n' pray" tactics. Prone to jamming thanks to it's Direct Impingement system, and lacking in power or accuracy compared to UN rifles like the ACT-99c or BEAR, the MPAR was never destined to be any more then a grunt's weapon. But then, it never needed to be.

looks good! And this is refreshing as I don't see helical mags that often.
