European Union basic weapons and vehicles.

Assault-

SCAR 11 AR
Info- The combined effort of multiple US and European arms manufacturers, the SCAR 11 has become the standard issue Assault Rifle due to its robust firepower and ability to perform in cold weather conditions. The SCAR 11 maintains a high rate of fire even in arctic climates, using an integrated heat distributor to prevent apparatus freezing. Electronically-fired, each tungsten-core round boasts an impact velocity of over 800 m/s, penetrating even the latest body armor technologies.

Recon-
MORRETTI SR4 SNIPER
Info- The Morretti SR4 (Sniper Rifle 4) is a next generation sniping medium utilizing a semiautomatic configuration, high calibre round and telescopic sight to effectively assail medium and long-range targets. The rifle is fitted with a carbonized metal barrel to decrease thermal distortion, ensuring maximum accuracy, although the high calibre generates significant recoil, requiring a non-repetitive, one shot/one kill approach.

Engineer-
MITCHELL AV-18
Info- The Mitchell AV-18 Anti-Vehicle weapon is able to perforate even the most resilient cladding and cause extensive damage. This modern-day Anti-Vehicle weapon was developed in direct response to mid-century advances in vehicle armor design. Made from polyminium, a new titanium-based amalgam, the Mitchell AV-18 body is ultralight, allowing a greater portion of its travel weight to be dedicated to ammunition. Replacing standard HEAT (high explosive anti-tank) rockets with heavier, more formidable, superplastic, multi-warhead explosives, the Mitchell AV-18 is able to perforate even the most resilient cladding and cause extensive damage.

TURCOTTE RAPID SMG
Info- Originally used in law enforcement and adopted by military forces as a personal defense weapon the high-tech Turcotte Rapid SMG (Sub Machine Gun) combines the muzzle velocity of a standard assault rifle, the automatic capability of a machine gun and the portability of a pistol. Loaded with small caliber, armor-piercing rounds, the Turcotte Rapid, lacks accuracy, and stopping power at long range, but its high rate of fire makes it an effective close combat weapon.

Support-
BIANCHI LMG
Info- The Bianchi FA-6 Light Machine Gun is remarkably effective as a provider of suppressive fire given its all-condition resilience and lengthy firing duration. Unlike its 21st century precursors, with its heat-resistant metal alloy components and computer-driven thermal transfer system, the Bianchi FA-6 requires neither mid-battle barrel changes nor maintenance, allowing for rapid, uninterrupted fire. With a retractable bipod, the Bianchi FA-6 is most accurate when fired from the prone position.

All Kits-
P33 PERIERA PISTOL
Info- The EU’s primary sidearm, while accurate over short range, it should only be considered a last resort in today’s confrontation.

BJ-2 COMBAT KNIFE

Info- The weapon of choice for the cunning soldier looking to humiliate his prey. Kills using the knife will yield the fallen soldier’s dog tags as a trophy.

EU Vehicles:
UD-6 Talon-
Info- Quite simply, the UD-6 Talon gunship was built to kill. Nimble and deadly, this ultramodern, two-person, VTOL aircraft combines a multipurpose arsenal with a uniquely flexible flight profile, allowing the Talon to strike both air and ground targets with unparalleled force and accuracy. The Talon’s munitions include a gunner-controlled pneumatically charged, high velocity autoblaster and vectored thrust, high-impulse thermobaric missile launcher and a pilot-controlled rocket fire system. The dual-layered composite buffer system, with a depleted uranium mesh insert, is durable enough to withstand heavy fire without hindering the gunship’s maneuverability through excessive weight or rigidity.

A-8 Tiger-
Info- The A-8 Tiger is the latest version of the A-series heavy tank division, adding a Non-Explosive Reactive Armor (NxRA) package to its standard composite construction. An additional Active Defense System enables the Tiger to withstand heavy artillery and missile attacks. Increased engine torque and power-to-weight ratio enable the track-based Tiger additional mobility and improved speed across rugged terrain. The Tiger is equipped with a driver-controlled main cannon and a rapid-fire, high caliber repeater at the second position, providing robust firepower against ground-based infantry and armored vehicle targets.

MK-15 Bandit-
Info- Quick and agile, the three-occupant, MK-15 Bandit is a high-performance, four-wheel-drive FAV used primarily as a multi-terrain, front line, battle transport. Armored only with lightweight ceramic elements and Triplex plates, the latest aramid fire-resistant synthetic fiber, the Bandit sacrifices protection for speed, boasting a pulsed plasma thruster (PPT), providing short bursts of unrivaled acceleration. The Bandit is armed with a single, medium-caliber, anti-infantry repeater

L5 Riesig-
Info- What the L5 Riesig Battlewalker loses in forward velocity, it makes up for ten-fold in offensive potency and scope. The bipedal configuration of this next generation assault unit enables it to traverse almost all terrains while its elevated vantage point, providing long distance viewing and multi-directional targeting, gives it a significant advantage over low height, horizontally-based agents. Manned by two occupants, the Battlewalker is outfitted with an array of weaponry, including two rapid-fire cannons and a dual-arena, infrared homing missile system. The Battlewalker armor is multi-layered, combining steel and reinforced plastic laminates with kinetic energy and heat absorbing materials. An automatic Active Defense System assists in resisting off air and ground fired rocket attacks.

AMV-2 Groundhog-
Info- The AMV-2 Groundhog is a specialty personnel carrier, used to deliver infantry into escalated conflict areas. This near impenetrable transport is fortified by a multifaceted armor arrangement, including an amalgamated polymer lattice under five layers of alternating steel and ceramic plates, coated with extreme temperature resilient Kevlar. The driver is armed with an EMP launcher to disable enemy vehicles long enough to escape. Some variants of the AMV-2 are outfitted with ejecting assault pods, which soldiers can use to mobilize against airborne targets.

UD-12 Shepherd-
Info- The UD-12 Shepherd was developed with a single purpose, to convey military personnel into the combat arena, dropping soldiers via spherical, quick-drop escape pods. Slow moving, but direction flexible, the Shepherd draws on a marriage of multi-source jet propulsion and hover technology to travel long distances at a mid-level altitude. The UD-12 is shelled in composite, electrically charged armor lined with Nomex fiber and relies on two medium-caliber, bipod mounted automatics to repel assailants.

There will be no voice acted version due to the fact that the original voice actors would be way too expensive and a fan version would destroy the immersion.
