Miniature Assault Cannon

-Created by Dave Beck
This is a prototype of what is being referred to as the "Slaughterer Cannon". It is smaller and lighter than a normal assault cannon. It sacrifices ammo capacity and range for concealability. It fires normal assault cannon rounds, but cannot accept belted ammo. It comes with an integrated Smartlink Level II, and uses the sniper rifle table for ranges.

Slaughterer Cannon
Type:                   Assault
Concealability:         4
Ammo:                   15(c)
Mode:                   SS*
Damge:                  18D
Weight:                 11
Availability:           14/30 days
Cost:                   26,000¥
Street Index:           5
* Although the weapon is single shot, it requires a complex action to fire.

>>>>>(This puppy has become my weapon of choice if I'm expecting serious trouble. The ammo capacity is a little light, the range is limited because of barrel length, and the weapon is physically difficult to operate. But when you consider that I can slip it under my long coat just as easy as a shotgun, it's all worth it.)<<<<<

Incendiary Rounds

-Created by Dave Beck
Weapons firing white phosphorus incendiary rounds step up the power by one (after burst or autofire increases) and reduces the target's ballistic armor by one. A weapon on semi-auto with a normal damage code of 7M would become an 8M, and the same weapon on burst fire would have a normal code of 10S, modified to 11S with incendiary rounds.

Phosphorus Rounds
Concealability:         8
Damage:                 Special
Weight:                 .75
Availability:           8/5 days
Cost:                   100¥
Street Index:           3

Armor Piercing Incendiary Rounds

-Created by Dave Beck
Weapons firing armor piercing white phosphorus incendiary rounds step up the power by one (after burst or autofire increases) and reduces the target's ballistic armor by half.

Incendiary APDS Rounds
Concealability:         8
Damage:                 Special
Weight:                 .75
Availability:           14/20 days
Cost:                   150¥
Street Index:           5

>>>>>(Ran into some of this stuff on my last op; a sniper in ambush had his weapon loaded with these. I walked away, but just barely, chummers. This stuff is already at street-level; the sniper was part of a group of rebels in butt-frag nowhere. Next thing you know, go-gangers and runner wanna-be's will be packing this stuff too.)<<<<<

SX Explosive Rounds

-Created by Dave Beck
SX explosive rounds add +3 to the power of the weapon, but follow all other standard rules for explosive ammo. However, if there are no successes generated in the success test, the round jams in the barrel, explodes there, and causes damage (as per damage code of weapon, including +3 power for the explosive round) to the weapon holder.

SX Explosive Rounds
Concealability:         8
Damage:                 Special
Weight:                 .75
Availability:           14/14 days
Cost:                   125¥
Street Index:           4

>>>>>(Word of advice: use this stuff only in weapons you REALLY trust, omaes. I saw a corper armed with a Sandler TMP loaded with these go up like a grenade. If your weapon jams on full auto-fire with SX ammo in it, you're toast...)<<<<<

>>>>>(The following weapons were pulled from the Talon Weapon Industries Fall/Winter Catalog for 2055. Yeah, I know that may sound like old news, but remember, this catalog is only sent to REGISTERED security organizations [read: corps and cops], and is really only a preview of what they are releasing. Most of this stuff should be hitting the streets right about now, so keep your eyes open.)<<<<<

Ruger P50 Firestorm

-Created by Jeff Holt (mystic@brokersys.com)
This weapon was introduced earlier this year at the Southeast Arms Expo in Atlanta, and was an instant success. Although it technically could fall into the Machine Pistol category, this 5mm handgun easily outclasses both the Ares Crusader and the Ceska Black Scorpion, and even rivals some Heavy Pistols in performance. Utilizing state of the art polymer-composite materials, the overall weapon weight is unbelievably only 2 kilograms. Since the Firestorm is also caseless, the overall magazine capacity is a whopping 50 ROUNDS! In all field tests, the Firestorm either met or exceeded TWIís stringent guidelines. If high capacity, high performance firearms are what you require, try the Firestorm.

Ruger P50 Firestorm 5mm Machine Pistol
Type:                   Heavy
Concealability:         4
Ammo:                   50 (m)
Mode:                   SA/BF
Damage:                 6M

Availability:           6/48 hrs
Cost:                   1500¥
Street Index:           2
Standard features include integral Smartlink II, and integral recoil reduction system (Gas Vent 2). Due to the length of the barrel, the Firestorm cannot accept any over or under barrel accessories.

>>>>>(Holy Drek! A fragging machine pistol that fires heavy pistol ammo. Sign me up!)<<<<<

Glock 30 Semi-Auto Pistol

-Created by Jeff Holt (mystic@brokersys.com)
This 5mm heavy pistol is based on the patented Glock series of handguns which were first introduced in the late 1980ís. The infamous Plastic gun, Glock made the headlines then, just as it will now.

This 5mm pistol comes in a variety of different models and with many options. Security providers everywhere take note, the Glock is back!

Calico M-220 9mm Semi-Auto Pistol

-Created by Jeff Holt (mystic@brokersys.com)
This pistol promises to re-define the way we view the common pistol. The H&K Calico M-220 is easily the most unique weapon on the market today. Another design based on a 20th century weapon, the M-220 uses a helical-feed magazine, and unique shell casing ejection/recoil compensation feature. The spent casings are ejected through the bottom, with the gases vented through the top of the weapon. The helical-feed magazine feeds the rounds into the receiver allowing for a smoother firing weapon. The M-220 is slightly larger than most sidearms, due to itís amazing 50 round* magazine capacity. This IS the weapon of the future.
*Optional 100 round magazine available.


Calico M-220 9mm Heavy Pistol
Type:                   Heavy

>>>>>(There is a little trick I picked up a few years back, called a static trigger. This little baby sets up a static-action in the trigger assembly that simulates burst-fire. One squeeze of the trigger basically equals three. Unfortunately, it gets a little unreliable much past burst-fire mode. Ask any armorer about them.)<<<<<

AMT 10mm Heavy Pistol

-Created by Jeff Holt (mystic@brokersys.com)
The AMT heavy pistol is TWIís entry into the mainstream sidearm market, competing with Ares and Colt for a section of the personal sidearm market. This heavy pistol was built with three concepts in mind: high capacity, high performance, and good stopping power. Of course, it outshines the competition in all three categories. AMT, the name to remember.
