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.
daisukekazama Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012
The FN P90 has the advantage of being an actual fully-engineered final design. I can't compete with that.

True. Still, a fine piece of artistic design. :)
