I love this design by its outlook flow~~
Believe this may be a bit larger or longer than P90 just by thinking of 100 round magazine in this one; P90 has only 50 round in one mage.

Well, these rounds are only 5mm wide spikes of solid steel, the P90's 5.7x28mm round is much fatter.

Hmmmm i wonder if its caliber can do greater damage than p90
Oh and also im bit curious about its aiming technique

It's got several times the velocity of the P90, plus more volume of fire.

Built-in camera sights communicate with a helmet or ocular implant.

I see, faster but a bit louder.
Supposedly there's this helmet design in your art piece?

Helmets vary widely across branches and nations. But all mounted optics use a universal software, so that enemy equipment can be used.

Reminds me of the FNH P90 Except with a more common pistol grip, and a foregrip

I took a lot of ques from the P90 - I wanted a sleek, futuristic PDW with high capacity and a sexy aesthetic, as this was originally designed for the female lead of one of my projects.

A very nice design, although I see a few things that I would suggest adding/changing.
First off, while I am not sure of the exact nature of the magnetic acceleration system being used, I think that tungsten would not be a useful metal for ammunition as it is not magnetically effected (to the best of my knowledge, I could be wrong).
Secondly, is there a rear sight anywhere? Or is it an FN P90 styled front sight? Either way I think it would be good to have some form of rail on the upper to allow for sight mounting.
Besides those points, awesome design and great execution.

I'm fairly sure tungsten is magnetically susceptible, and if not the cheaper tungsten-steel alloys defiantly are.

No. And that's intentional: this weapon is used by an oppressive government, and it's designed to make it hard for rebel forces to use. Since you're average Rebel can't afford the Secret Police issue eye-implants or Police/Military combat helmets that the weapon syncs it's reticule with, he's not nearly as likely to be effective with it, since he can't aim. Of course, the flush accessory hard-points on the top can be used to mount impromptu irons, or optics.

After watching all those railgun and electro-magnetic guns youtube, i half expected to so huge capacitors hidden in a hallow stock. I love the idea of having a horizontal mag in something else other than a rounded box :D
this is really well done and i love the concept.

Where is the SAFE mode?

Independent switch on the other side

imachrismoose Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Actually, that seems a rather good idea. Couldn't you have drawn both sides?
Reply
:iconscrewfaceromeo:
ScrewfaceRomeo Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
It's a function of the type of safety: the safety cuts power to the battery and blocks the trigger, the selector varies the pulse rate. Thus, they must be separate. The other side also features a velocity selector switch, allowing one to set it for subsonic if silence is necessary.

I suppose, but I get lazy. I rarely do left-right side drawings.

You, sir, are a loose cannon, and I thoroughly disagree with you.
But honestly, that sounds like something out of an 80's loose cannon police movie. Love it!

Very nice concept, although I think the positioning of the fire-rate selector should be a bit further back, to allow it to be change with a flick of the thumb.
The quality of the overall weapon is superb regardless

But other than that, I love it, like a cut down P90.

Modern ammunition costs 0.30 per cartridge. It's complex, with 1. primer 2. brass cartridge 3. powder 4. bullet.
Magnetic accelerator ammo is simple. 1. bullet.
The reason the ammo for the gun is so simple is because it's the gun itself that accelerates the bullet. So, now that you know all this, how much do you think a bullet for this gun would cost, and why?

Yes. Railgun technology is progressing at a rate where, in the near future, I expect the military to be testing guns like this.

Not for civilian use, anyway. But caseless ammunition like that would be a major boon to many military operations. Not to mention, it would reduce malfunctions to zero, because there are no moving parts to jam.
