Talk about major firepower...

Post by Piero on Thu 12 Jun 2008 - 2:37

I want to have a new OC cyborg I'm working on have one of these listed in her profile as a 'heavy duty special.' Someone talk me out of it.

That gunner is totally no fun. C'mon, man - hold the trigger down for at least five seconds and let us enjoy the spectacle!

So I thought, "Oh look, he's shooting a cardboard wall... Wait, that's bricks!" Very Happy Cool gun. He does need to hold that trigger for longer though. NO

The 12.7 x 108 mm round the KORD uses is just 9mm longer then the .50 BMG. So that gun has about the same hitting power as the M2.

You always dream big don't you Piero. I remember reading someones OC profile in which the cyborg was familiar with heavy weapons including mortars. My first thought was cool. My second thought was, now when is she ever going to use a mortar? It's a bit much to clear out a Five Republics safe house with a mortar, or RPG-7, you know.

A .50BMG version has been developed too -that might actually be a better option for an SWA cyborg if it was available.

I should note that this is not supposed to be Alessia's main heavy weapon. That falls to her FAMAS rifle. That being said, even as a 'special' I'm wondering about justification. That thing could shoot up a car pretty bad, but a lighter gun would probably do the trick (though then again, a .50BMG round may have a better chance of taking an engine out of commision rapidly then a 7.62mm round, and it might do better against a heavily armoured car...).

Still, am I the only person who thinks the idea of a gentle looking 5'2 Franco-Italian girl using this gun is awesome? Especially if she uses it the way the guy in this video does? Laughing

That's one heck of a muzzle break on that thing...

... I don't see a problem with her having a .50cal machine gun for a heavy weapon. It's not a whole lot more 'overkill-ish' than Rico's MG3.
Just as long as you don't go for the RPG launchers, flamethrowers, et cetera...
...also, the FAMAS is a regular 5.56x45mm bullpup assault rifle. It probably couldn't do a whole lot of damage to an engine block without using specialized AP rounds. 'Etta's FN FAL is actually a much heavier weapon.

I was comparing the Kord more to a general purpose machine gun like Rico's MG-3 then a FAMAS. The reason I mentioned the FAMAS was to point out that the FAMAS was Alessia's usual weapon (it's her viola case gun -she uses an oblong type case rather then the usual sculpted one so that it will actually fit), and that the Kord was not. Sorry for the confusion.

ah. I see. I guess we just classify things differently in our heads. I draw a line between 'Heavy Weapon' and 'Assault Weapon'.
*shrug*
all cleared up.

THAT gun for your OC? Must've been a very buff one...

That'll be cool though; reminds me of Aleksei in War Front: Turning Point--you know, the big Russian guy with the MG.

That's definitely a heavy weapon. Foes of the SWA needs to watch out for this one Laughing

I tend to have my OCs have weapons I actually fired...
But I seriously doubt that they would let Rachel have a 1863 Kentucky Rifle cheers

So its M-16s, M1 & M4s, .32/.38s, and .45s for us!
