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.
