CZ AM-500 AFFILIATION Open Market MANUFACTURER Czerka Corp. SIZE 2.1 meters WEIGHT 28 kg COMPOSITION DurasteelWEAPON TYPE Light laser cannon DAMAGE TYPE Light laser cannon AMMUNITION CAPACITY 3 shots FIRE SELECTOR Semi-automatic MAX RANGE 500 meters DESCRIPTIONSometimes when heavy firepower is needed, air strikes or tanks just won't cut it. And any soldier would prefer to rather stay very far out of harm's way than sneak in with conventional weapons and methods to cause havoc. The CZ AM-500 is the universal answer to anyone with an anti-material problem. Literally a light laser cannon modified for use by one or two people, the AM-500 is a monster. With a range unrivalled by small arms and with a power output unmatched, the AM-500 is capable of taking out vehicles, strategic targets, people, and almost anything else...all by one person far outside of harm's way. It is without a doubt both a monstrosity and a marvel of technology. The fact that it comes standard with a 10x scope, detachable bipod, and the ability to break down into two parts for easy carry certainly sweetens the deal. Unfortunately it isn't without its downsides. Firstly the weapon is heavy. Far heavier than any normal blaster and far too heavy for normal battlefield engagements. Usually it needs a two-man crew but a single person could operate this albeit with difficulty. The ammunition capacity is also far too low for actual active combat. To make matters worse, the intense firepower is far too much for a normal firing system and the built-in recoil compensating system also complicates things, so the firing system responsible for loading the Tibanna gas and priming the weapon limits it to firing only every second. This weapon is, for all intents and purposes, meant to be used at a safe distance with good cover by a sniper that knows what they're doing. Overall its a very niche weapon. Against single individuals it's practically useless, especially at its maximum range, but against vehicles, ships and other more vulnerable targets it is utterly devastating. LEGALITYRestricted. This is an incredibly powerful weapon not meant for civilian use. Only official military or law-enforcement agencies as well as official military factions are authorized to use these. But that isn't to say that one can't find these on the black market. Though getting caught with these illegally in any civilized system could end disastrously. INTENTTo create a proper, powerful sniper/anti-material rifle for players. As an anti-material rifle, it could also introduce different playstyles for players to use on missions. ADVANCED TECHYES. This is a ludicrously powerful weapon. And despite its weight, slow firing rate and cumbersome nature, it is still incredibly dangerous. A plot of 3-4 threads will be needed for these OR 2 AT slots with faction rewards. It can also be acquired through the SALEs market with tokens.
