New born of mass drivers, AV-110 Landsknecht is another try for replacement of Mirk K-16 in the Army. Cheap and easy-to-work, AV-110, is a copy of xenotechnological Orders' weapons. Unified ammo cartridge contains 4570 bullets of four types: 4400 of cheap, light and universal R-100; 100 of longrange and accurate R-103; 50 of deadly white-phosphorous R-127 and 20 of excellent shield-breaking R-121. Landsknecht is a beginner of new age in military technologies.

Does this operate on the railgun principle or the coilgun principle.

Thats only 129,6 joules shot energy for the R-100. Its even way weaker than a .22 long rifle cartridge. a (9mm parabellum is about 550-750 joles depending on powderload) with 300rpm how thats supposed to kill stuff?

Oh and is the screen with the bright blue numbers a volt-meter? Thats what is was on a gauss gun video I saw (the gun wasen't that powerful though DX but it could tear stuff up with those metal bullets!).

Actually, railguns work by conducting a current through the rails, using the projectile to bridge the gap between the rails. Because of this, the rails need effective cooling, due to the heat from the friction generated when the gun fires, and also need to be replaced frequently due to wear caused by the high-speed projectiles, which can reach speeds of approx Mach 6+.

how many does it hold? how does it load? and what's the rate of fire or is it single shot?
Reply
:iconergrassa:
Ergrassa Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
full load is 4570 bullets in plastic case above buttstock
standard firerate is 250-300 rpm, but cases high rail erosion, so recommended are five-burst or single shots

oh, i see them now. those little red things.
how is there rail erosion? I thought projectiles fired from rail based weaponry never touch the inside of the rails. does the round warp and expand for some reason?
Reply
:iconergrassa:
Ergrassa Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
projectiles don't touch the rails, but the conductive sabot or plasma arc does.

:iconthree-forces:
three-forces Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
plasma? how hot does this thing get? is the plasma a result or a factor in propelling the projectile? (sorry just too curious)
Reply
:iconergrassa:
Ergrassa Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
plasma arc becomes if shell is non-conductive
well, it's better to refer to wikipedia article «Railgun»

Yet another question: What xenotechnological could be contained in a common streaming-rail accelerator?
Reply
:iconergrassa:
Ergrassa Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
the materials and composites are copies of xenotech. Most federal corporations' (and Eior too) R&D considered them as not-profiable at current tech level. Solar Industries and Daumann Sattelites developed missing technologies to make them affordable.

Possible, but tech is unusable separately and unprofitable at the moment

So, what's the clue? Miniaturisation of both rail acceleration chamber and projectile and, so on, reduction of battery capacity required?

If so, why don't they use more massive long slugs (e.g. 2x23)? They pierce armor more effectively.

they are more expensive and heavier. Anyway, there will be AV-110e, which bolt, rail and feeder can be easily replaced for needed ammo type, but without support and warranty ;-)

an awesome gun, the design is very futuristic, but doesn't conform to the usual sci-fi = bulky. The only problem with it I'd say is the bipod, which to me is too thin, and the metallic silver does stands out from the rest of the model (in a bad way), but that's just my own personal opinion. keep up the good work!
Reply
:iconergrassa:
Ergrassa Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Bipod has really weak look, but it's «true unbreakable chrome-vanadium steel» =)

It's bulky and box-like because it's designed for stupid-ape-recruits of army.

Anyway, thanks for commenting and critics =)

themadgrenadier99 Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2010
No problems. I didn't have too much of a problem with the size and shape. It's futuristic without being over-done, is what I meant.

But thinking about it, if they're for the cannon fodder/grunts, why does your bipod have unbreakable steel, which would be expensive? :P
Reply
:iconergrassa:
Ergrassa Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
bipod, frame and some mechanisms are made of high-durable steel, and it's cost is 3 Geo at most (with retail price 930 Geo, advance order price 200 Geo and unit cost is ~40-50 Geo, including superconductors, electronic components and software).

:iconthemadgrenadier99:
themadgrenadier99 Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2010
Ah, a very good price indeed then.

However, one thing has struck me. Generally speaking, people perform better with weapons when there's a form of aiming available? The weapon appears to not have even a basic iron sight, and surely this is a major factor that would affect its eligibility as a replacement for the Mirk K-16?
Reply
:iconergrassa:
Ergrassa Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
about sight — [link]
it has no «basic» ironsight, but «basic» red-dot sight. as most of new firearms. K-16 has ironsight, because it has been developed emmm… about two centuries before AV-110 =)

And, replacement of K-16 is some kind of contest of armaments manufacturers ;-)
Reply
:iconthemadgrenadier99:
themadgrenadier99 Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2010
Ah I see, a very interesting idea of integrating it directly into the frame. Personally though, it might need a more precise red dot sight, as to contain so many rounds within a single magazine would mean the overall damage caused by one round would not be dissimilar to having a needle go through you (not very damaging), so every shot would need to hit its mark, no?

there's default electronic scope (closed on model) you can see it as part which has small black rectangular part on the top; and it has laser sight.
Anyway, user can easy install Picatinny rail as replacement.
