Far Future Warfare Notes


Two military groups: the Colonial Militia, and the Astrotroopers (??)
Colonial militia are the first line of planetary defence, but the Astrotroopers (a la british regulars) are the main combatants

final mission fighting uprising by colonial militia, player can choose to side with militia
"Your job is now to quell riots on Sector 7 of MR 449. Mutinous army units are siding with the rioters, and you must restore security to the region." ...downtime between missions to maintain weapons...

Armor Penetration (27mm): 60mm RHA Note: Actual penetration can deviate by +/- 25% due to numerous factors, such as distance, quality of penetrator, quality of armor, angle of armor, etc. Ballistic Drop: Ballistic Drop: Mils Accuracy (9mm): .9 Mils Accuracy (27mm): 2 Minimum Safe Firing Range (27mm HEAT-T): 10 meters for unprotected personnel, 3 meters for protected personnel Minimum Arming Range: 3 to 8 meters

The M## is a bulk loaded liquid propellant gun, transforming the average astrotrooper into an armored vehicle of mass destruction.


The 9mm APDS is a 40mm long bullet, which when fired, will seperate into three aluminum sabot petals and one 7mm kinetic penetrator with an L/D ratio of 5.57. This allows for long range highly accurate fires with high penetration capabilities. Sustained fires could potentially penetrate most urban walls, with exceptions being of natural stone walls and thick armor steel. Common housefold furniture and appliances are easily penetrated by the 9mm.
The 27mm HEAT-T will not fuse within 5 meters. Three detonation options: 3 seconds after impact, at impact, or within one meter of the target using the fire control system to time the fuse. Restrict your rate of fire to twelve shots per ten seconds, for 9mm rounds. This is due to thermal softening. In emergency situations, you can go over these limits, however prolonged firing runs the risk of the gun exploding, particularly in hot or low pressure environs. The combined rate of fire for 27mm, is low enough that the risk of failure is unlikely, given reload time and time to pull the trigger, however try to avoid firing 27mm continuously.
