New Israeli Weapons and Equipment Back to Top

Assault Rifle
The AR-7 produced by Shadrach Arms on NI is a 10mm Gauss Rifle fitted with a 5 round 30mm Semi-Automatic Grenade launcher. The Gauss operating system proving highly suitable for ZeroG operation.
FP: 3 Impact: d12

Squad Automatic Weapon
The MG-21 also produced on NI by Mag'ach Intertech. The MG-21 is a carriage fed, Gauss operated fully automatic light support weapon. An integrated Electro-Optical sight enable the firer to observe targets without exposing himself to enemy fire although in practice firing 'around corners' is still not feasible due to damping problems on the Gauss action vibrations. The ammunition is normally carried in a shoulder pack.
FP: d10 Impact: d12

Guided Missile Systems
A revolutionary design in the GMS field, the NI ST12 is an extremly light weight back pack mounted missile system firing a 60mm HEAT warhead missile. The missile is a 'fire and forget' weapon that utilises an advanced Thermal and Photon Image Recognition system to lock on to, and track its target. Consequently it is much less susceptible to ECM although is vulnerable to battlefield obscuration, rain and fog. The NI integrated shoulder harness allows a hands free operation enabling the firer to carry and use another small arm weapon, such as the AR-7. The ST15 is a GMS/L normally fitted on Ground Mount Tripod or Vehicle Pintle Mount. Essentially the same as the ST12 but firing a longer range missile and fitted with a larger warhead.
ST12 Guidance: d10 (Superior) Impact: d12;   ST15 Guidance: d10 (Superior) Impact: d12x2

Heavy Anti-Materiel Rifle
Built along the same design guidelines as the AR-7 the M2 HAMR is a magazine fed, Gauss operated Semi-Automatic rifle that fires a 30mm sabot casing incorporating a 5mm Depleted Uranium Core Penetrator. Against weapons control systems, communcations equipment and actual weapons ordnance it has proved extremely effective.
FP: d8 Impact: d12x2

Laser Sniping Rifle
The design and specifications of the NI laser sniping rifle are still classified and are unavailable. After Action Report Assessments indicate it is much lighter than conventional LSR.
It is assessed that the NILSR has a FP of d12 and Impact of d8 or d10.

Personal Defence Weapon
The PDW as carried by NI specialists and many vehicle and air crew is a very utilitarian design equivalent to a standard SMG. The PDW is a magazine fed, select fire small arm that fires a 4.5 mm caseless round from a 30 round magazine with a cyclic rate of fire of 1200 rpm. It is generally used at close range only, but may be used at longer ranges.
FP: 1 (CL Range FP: 3) Impact: d8

Body Armour
The NI specialist body armour is an extremely lightweight silicon and carbon-ceramic laminate allowing the wearer virtually unencumbered movement. It provides a fully sealed environment protection enabling limited vacuum environment operations. Command Suits have an integrated C3I system providing very advanced target detection and EW capability.
ARMOUR VALUE: d8 MOBILITY: 8" or d8x2" Sensors: d10 (Superior) ECM: d8 (Enhanced)


New Israeli Vehicles Back to Top

Depending on Concept of Operations, combat vehicles may be either VTOLs or more commonly Grav. Under development currently is the LEVI, Grav Assault Vehicle (Light). This is a lightly armoured Grav vehicle that will carry troops from High Altitude Drops onto a ground target. The In-Service Variants will likely mount DFFG or GMS/H systems.
