Essen AE-0006+ Assault Rifle by daisukekazama Essen AE-0006+ Assault Rifle by daisukekazama
Better version over here.

---

So here's the story. One morning, I found myself extremely bored - as often happens when all your friends are out vacationing - and got a sudden urge to design an assault rifle (don't you hate it when that happens?). This is what came out.

Behold, the Avtomat Essena AE-0006+ assault carbine, manufactured by the F. V. Essen Manufacturing Company, Rybinsk, Russia. The AE-0006+ is undergoing final testing with Naval Infantry special forces as that branch of the Russian armed forces' next-generation standard assault rifle.

The oddly-named AE-0006+ fires 6.2x34mm armor piercing caseless ammunition from a vertical feed 40-round magazine at a blistering 900 RPM. As is most Russian weaponry, it's also practically indestructible, kicks like a Kazakh horse, and rips through just about every human body you can put in front of it. It's fairly accurate... as long as you stick to semi-automatic fire.

It goes without saying that, despite its ergonomic appearance and ambidextrous construction, it's built with absolutely no regard for the physical well-being of the shooter.

The odd thing about the AE-0006+ is that it has no fire selector switch or even a safety. What it has instead is something called a 'chamber lock,' which prevents accidental cookoffs by cutting off the chamber (or something like that). Yeah, I have no idea. The lock is active by default, and is disengaged per each shot by a sort of double action trigger. It can also be manually engaged via the dial in the back, and that serves as the safety.

Fire control is done via trigger a la Steyr AUG. Crisply pull the trigger once, and the weapon fires in semi-automatic; hold it down, and the weapon fires full-auto. There is no burst fire mode because real Slav men don't need no sissy burst fire.

That's a nicely made weapon I think could be possible with some European engineering :)

German is correct. It is indeed a German surname. Baltic German, to be precise - a valid, if uncommon, Russian surname.

Back in the days of Imperial Russia, Baltic Germans were prevalent in the higher tiers of the Russian military. The Soviet era forced the Baltic Germans out in favor of pan-Slavism, which is why you don't hear about Baltic Germans in Russia nowadays.

This particular name (Essen - Fyodor Vyacheslavich Essen is the weapon's designer) is taken from Nikolai von Essen, the captain of the Russian Imperial Navy cruiser Novik. He served with distinction in the Russo-Japanese War and was much admired by both the Japanese and his Russian compatriots for his bravery. Fyodor Vyacheslavich is posited to be a distant ancestor of von Essen.

*Drool* err.... is it abnormal to want one more than the car I'd been planning on buying!? lol

Great job! And I agree with the bit you've crossed out with one alteration because real men don't need no sissy burst fire! I've been told by a few ex-forces people I've met the ultimate fire selector and the ultimate safety is the user! The manufactures put them on as an insurance opt out lol

I wouldn't say abnormal - I want one too.

Hahaha, burst fire is for people who don't have trigger control :)

WHYYY!!!?!?!??!?! You make me want to kill you and STEAL YOUR BRAIN FOR IT'S AWESOMENESS!
But I guess I can't kill you because, hey, I'm not a surgeon, so the brain part would be impossible and well, you'd be dead, and the awesomeness would stop, so looks like you get to live.

For now...

And yet another :+fav:, I know...

Interesting resemblance to the P90.

Not dissimilar. The magazine layout's different, though, and the grips are also pretty different if you get past the overall silhouette.

Bullpup i assume? And what's that circular disk on the butt?
Reply
:icondaisukekazama:
daisukekazama Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2010
Technically bullpup. The feed system is similar to the HK G11's mechanism. The dial on the stock is the safety.

Ah yeah i did think of the G11 when i saw that dial.
I never did get my head around the way the G11 works... :P
