The little brother to the Tankgewehr 25. :3
I like odd magazines.

I see a problem with that one. The cannon is too long to avoid detection by enemies.

This one is the longest model available meant to be used by law enforcement or when camo is not necessary. A variety of shorter barrels with less resulting accuracy and firepower is available.

Hopefully, because this thing would be a problem to fit in a bag.

I'm a little surprised at how small (narrow) the barrel is.  I did just a little (REAL little) bit of precision shooting in college, and the target rifles had huge barrels even for tiny .22 rounds, mostly for precision and stability.

Very wicked looking design though!  ;-)

It works, it's science fiction! :D
The composites used for the barrel are extremely stiff and heat-resistant.
Thank you! :)

Does it include active stabilizers?  That could get rid of shake.  ;-)

For the target rifles I was shooting (which have the same accuracy requirements for a sniper rifle, but not so concerned with portability), the weight was primarily to make the gun stable.  Of course, that's because you're holding the rifle, not leaning against a bi-pod or other support.  Then, some of that mass is absorbing recoil, which your SciFi weapon probably solves in other ways.

Of course, even with current technology, there have been so many different advances recently that it would be hard for me to compare without a huge amount of research.  Extrapolate that out to SciFi, and you can have all kinds of fun dreaming up exotic materials.  But in the end, you're still slinging a little bit of mass down a tube and hoping it hits where you pointed it. ;-)

Hm. The cartridge idea is from H&K G33, right?

Are you sure that you mean the G33? I can't see any similarities... :/
Actually I didn't have a reference, it is quite similar to a random model I threw together in Pimp my Gun some years ago.

I've made a mistake. What I meant is H&K G11 prototype rifle. It has a unique ammunition: a caseless 4.73x33mm round, which, apparently, was good, but not meant for the united Europe when the EU formed, and thus was scrapped.

I see. :) The G11 is one of my favourite wepon designs out there, I think its boxy shape and unusual feed inspires me every tim I design something.
