OB-720 Rotary Blaster AFFILIATION Open Market MANUFACTURER Blackwell Independent Technologies SIZE 1.2m long/40cm wide WEIGHT 17.7kg COMPOSITION durasteel, plasteelWEAPON TYPE Blaster DAMAGE TYPE Light AMMUNITION CAPACITY 50 standard(100 with heavy power pack) FIRE SELECTOR Automatic MAX RANGE 150 meters DESCRIPTIONThe Ordinance/Blackwell-720rpm light rotary blaster, or OB-720 for short(Nicknamed the "Oh, Baby!" by some) was designed by the Zabrak Mandalorian Sumas Kovox-Solus after a euphoric trip induced by drugs and alcohol. The rough design was to simply tie 6 blasters together and try to have them fire one after the other in rapid succession. This crude design was utterly atrocious and unreliable. The experiment went as well as trying to poke a bull rancor with a stick. But after sobering up and working further on this ludicrous idea Sumas finally figured out how to do it. He went to BiT and they helped him build it. Originally it was meant to be mounted on troop carriers to provide covering fire for the passengers as they disembark, but it didn't take long for a genius to strap a power pack to it and hold it in their hands. What makes this weapon unique is the fact that all 6 barrels are individual semi-automatic weapons. The barrels rotate so each semi-automatic barrel can achieve its 2 shots/second firing rate to produce a whopping 720 rounds/minute. All this firepower comes at a price, though. The weapon is big and very heavy, plus in its handheld form it's generally only designed for right-handed use. It also almost always requires a heavy power pack since it chews through the 50 round power pack like a pack of jelly beans. The accuracy also dips more and more if constantly fired for longer than 3 or so seconds. It's primary design is to use up the 13 seconds or so of constant fire then drop the gun and switch to something easier to use. LEGALITYIllegal to anyone outside of proper militaries. Licensed PMC's and legitimate standing armies are allowed to purchase and use these in whatever way they seem fit, though. INTENTThere's not much variety in terms of repeaters and none that fit bigger characters properly. I wanted to expand on the choice-vacuum. Plus I wanted to include something that handles like a proper LMG for characters to use in supporting roles instead of using it like a glorified rifle. ADVANCED TECHYES. This weapon is dangerous and with the amount of bleed-through it can cause it's very devastating. A plot of about 3-4 threads is needed to acquire one either from BiT/Czerka itself or from a black market dealer.
