Daitōjin Ground Forces Equipment Catalogue
« on: November 22, 2022, 04:49:41 AM »
DAITŌJIN GROUND FORCES EQUIPMENT CATALOGUE

   Daitō has long had a thriving small arms industry, producing some of the most common rifles and pistols to grace Mundus. Like with its aerospace industry, it is made up of numerous companies, all vying for government contracts, which has bred a culture of competition to provide the finest weapons and systems for the Imperial Military. This can be seen with recent programs such as the Type 81 NGSW program and older pieces of equipment, such as the AMBT program of the 1970s. This catalogue will include small arms and vehicles produced in Daitō, with an emphasis on that which is currently in service within the Imperial Daitōjin Army, although some equipment will either be purely for export or be retired but still maintained in large enough quantity for export. In those cases, it will be noted under the cost section of each piece of equipment.

Type 81S
RoleAssault Rifle
ManufacturerYamano
Weight5.4 kg
LengthBarrel Length: 500mm
Firing Range600 m
Other StuffFires 6.851mm SSKCM polymer-cased cartridges
Features a recoil mitigation system with reciprocating barrel
Designed with modularity in mind
Features an integrated suppressor
Can be equipped with a 10-, 20-, 40-, or 100-round magazine
Cost$8,000
BackgroundThe culmination of the JBB Program, the Yamano Type 81S Assault Rifle, alongside the Type 81K Automatic Rifle, is among the
newest weapons to enter service within the Imperial Daitōjin Military. Its producer, Yamano, stated that its design ethos was to,
quote, "grant the Daitōjin solider an unfair advantage in any combat situation", while the producer of its SSKCM cartridges,
Shin no Sokudo, claimed that it viewed the program as more of a munitions program, with its polymer-cased cartridges marking
a "paradigm shift" the likes of which hadn't been seen since the turn of the 20th century.

The Type 81S is notable for being the first bullpup rifle introduced into Daitōjin service, aiming to replace the Yamakawa Type 49
rifle which was introduced in 1989. The SSKCM cartridge, for its part, is intended to be backwards-compatible with an number of
other weapons, requiring only a change of barrel in order to make use of it. Reportedly, the decision to switch to a 6.8mm round
was made as the Imperial Daitōjin Army wanted a rifle capable of counteracting modern body armor such as that which would be
utilized by a near-peer adversary.

Type 81K
RoleSquad Automatic Weapon
ManufacturerYamano
Weight5.8kg
LengthBarrel Length: 577mm
Firing Range600 m
Other StuffFires 6.851mm SSKCM polymer-cased cartridges
Features a recoil mitigation system with reciprocating barrel
Designed with modularity in mind
Features an integrated suppressor
Can be equipped with a 10-, 20-, 40-, or 100-round magazine
Cost$8,300
BackgroundA variant of the Type 81 designed to serve as a Squad Automatic Weapon, the 81K is meant to
complement previous weapons rather than outright replace them like what is seen with the 81S.
The 81K features a longer barrel, granting it a longer range than the Type 81S, however, it also
has a lower rate of fire, with only 480 rounds/minute compared to the 81S's 600 rounds/minute.

RoleSemi-automatic pistol
ManufacturerHagihara
Weight834 g
Length203 mm
Firing Range60 m
Other StuffChambered in 9mm
17 or 21-round magazine
Cost$768
BackgroundDesigned initially as a low-cost replacement for the PCW, the Type 77 ultimately became an upgrade of
the weapon, adding a number of features to improve its battlefield performance. The Type 77 entered
service in 2017, and is currently in the process of replacing the PCW across all branches. Unfortunately,
it is incapable of being chambered in anything other than the 9mm round it comes with by default owing
to the spanner screw on the frame's chassis.

a rifle. The Yamakawa T163, often nicknamed the "Buzzsaw", has in part been replaced with the Type 81K, however,

Type 57
RoleShotgun

Other StuffThe Type 57 can fire 12-gauge, 20-gauge, and .410 bore shells

BackgroundEffectively an assault rifle modified to fire shotgun shells, the Hazuki Type 57 has a reputation for being a reliable
weapon, as well as one that is easy to maintain. The Type 57 can fire up to 600 rounds/minute, although obviously,
due to the size of it's largest magazine, this number cannot realistically be achieved. Even so, with its excellent rate
of fire, the Type 57 is perfect for the discerning customer who wishes to make sure that anyone standing within 100
meters will have a most unpleasant day.
