Oceanic Union Weapons and Equipment Back to Top

The emphasis on OU weapons development has been reliability and durability under particularly harsh environments. Consequently use of liquid chemical propellants (susceptible to degradation in heat and cold) or advanced but high-maintenance weapons components such as Gauss accelerators has been limited to specialist and heavy weapon development.

F72 Advanced Combat Rifle
Standard Infantry small arm firing 4mm conventional caseless round. Fitted with advanced electro-optical sights and designed with a bullpup firing mechanism, this weapon is well-suited to jungle and urban operations. The lack of an integral grenade launcher is considered to be balanced within a section by the addition of the second SAW as more suitable in both open and close country.
FP: 2 Impact: d10

F77 Light Support Weapon (SAW)
A belt/magazine fed 4mm light machine gun. Although it may be carried on a Gyro Mount, most infantry gunners prefer to carry it freehand as it enables the firer to adopt better fire positions unhindered.
FP: d8 Impact: d10

M27P/L GMS/P
A standardised "fire'n'forget" 81mm missile system that is employed man-portable, Ground Mount and in the Support Vehicle roles.
Guidance: Enhanced (d8) Impact: d12*

M9A2 PPG(I) - Portable Plasma Gun (Infantry)
This PIG may be employed in place of the GMS/P particularly in urban environments where backblast from a missile launcher can be a disadvantage. Not well-favoured due to high maintenace requirements.
FP: d6 Impact: d12*

M39 IAVR - Single Shot Disposable Rocket
A popular anti-vehicle weapon and "bunker buster" this 72mm unguided rocket is fitted with a dual purpose warhead that can be 'dialled' by the firer to impact as a 'squash head' round against light armour or hardened targets or as a general explosive against soft targets such as troops in the open or light cover.
FP: d8 Impact: d12*

F82 Sniper Rifle (Laser)
The Lithgow Arms Electra is the one exception to the OU imperative of simplicity in weapons design. This high energy pulse laser rifle can be powered from either a high capacity backpack or 5 shot magazine-batteries.
FP: d12 Impact: d8

M55a2 Harlequin LAD
Anti-Air Guided Missile System. A light man portable low level air defence system fired from a ground mount system. May be operated by one man but requires a minimum of two to carry.
Guidance: Superior (d10) vs aerial targets, Basic (d6) vs ground targets. Impact: d12 (against aircraft) d8 (against ground targets)

Ballsitica Body Armour
IR and microwave resistant ballistic cloth has been augmented with ferro-ceramics to produce a light weight but effective body armour. The helmet incorporates a standard HUD feeding information from the personal weapon sensors and Platoon and Company Intel and Targetting systems. A lightweight head set has been produced to provide a cooler alternative to a helmet particularly in the sweltering and humid jungle heat. The headset may optionally have a visor/HUD attached.
ARMOUR VALUE: d6 MOBILITY: 6" or d6x2" Sensors: d8 (Enhanced) ECM: d6 (Basic)

Power Armour
One of the issues still undecided after the recent restructure of the OUDF is the employment of PA in support of operations. Currently, PA is being trialed in selected Mechanised Infantry Battalions. It is envisaged to augment the Mech Inf Bn by replacing one Rifle Coy with a PA Coy. More information will be released as the trials progress.
ARMOUR VALUE: d12 MOBILITY: 12" or d12x2" Sensors: Enhanced (d8) ECM: Basic (d6)
