Essen AE-0006+, Digitalized by daisukekazama Essen AE-0006+, Digitalized by daisukekazama
A vectored version of the Essen AE-0006+ assault rifle concept sketch. I've updated the design significantly, with slightly improved ergonomics, far more detailed design, and a more practical layout for the flattop rail. TangoDown grip included for the lulz (I was going to go for a Surefire taclight grip, but I got lazy).

Technical schpiel:
The Avtomat Essena (Essen assault rifle) AE-0006+ is the brainchild of General Lieutenant Fyodor Vyacheslav'ch Essen of the Russian F. V. Essen Manufacturing Company (EMK). The weapon fires 7N60 tungsten-carbide-tipped 6.2x34mm armor-piercing caseless rounds at 900 rounds per minute from an electronic ignition rotating bolt assembly with trigger-slaved fire control (crisp single pull for semi, hold down for auto).

The Essen is manufactured entirely out of mil-spec ballistic polymer, making it light, waterproof, reliable, and close to indestructible. The barrel is easily detachable; the magazine holds 40 rounds. The rail module on top (designed per a request from the Naval Infantry) houses a memory chip that can interface with head-mounted HUD systems and can store user preferences such as trigger weight and fire rate. It also functions as a weapon lock; if removed, the weapon will not fire. Most importantly, it can be loaded with software to interface with a separately issued camera mounted in the rail module.

The zeros in the designation '-0006' references the Essen's prototype status. The '+' denotes the weapon's capability for handling high-velocity armor piercing loads.

A fantastic design, in fact, I like it even better than some its real life counterparts, such as the FN P90.

The FN P90 has the advantage of being an actual fully-engineered final design. I can't compete with that.

What an awesome weapon.....not too sure about the clip, especially in fast-paced assault situations. This weapon will probably only be issued to SF and DELTA Squad. Regardless, It looks like an all around capable weapon. Awesome work.

Fantastic, your other deviation, the Anti-aircraft shotgun also takes me back to gits (Last scene, first movie), I absolutely love the concept of an anti material shotgun.

A weapon that somehow fires a cluster of flechette-like projectiles, if feasible, would be interesting as a shotgun-type antimaterial weapon :)

Man oh man, sickest gun I've seen in a LONG time! Now THIS is tacticool! Ideally it'd be able to do the following for me to REALLY appreciate it the most:

:bulletblack: Use caseless rounds (brass casings are overrated, boring, low-tech and too normal)
:bulletblack: Use electronic ignition (used with caseless ammunition to prevent cooking off...also awesome since the M41A from Aliens used electronic "pulse" firing system)
:bulletblack: Fire tracer rounds that glow with a pretty, red flame (so they look like laser bolts)
:bulletblack: Finally, use a suppressor so advanced, it makes the movie silencer fpew sound (so it sounds like a laser as well as looking like a laser!)

These are what would make the perfect gun, in my humble opinion :)

Yes, I do agree it needs a badass silencer.

I was initially planning to design and attach a proprietary multi-mode rifle sight, but I got lazy :)

Well, unlazy yourself and get to work then xD
But in all seriousness, something like Elcan's Spectre DR? On one of my own creations I made up a 'sight' which, in combination with an FPS-like HUD, projects a ballistic arc from the rifle's muzzle (it also functions as a camera and a regular optical sight, just in case).
