Instellarms 7mm Mk X Advanced Combat Rifle System

converted the MT ACR into TNE stats.

The 7mm Mk X ACR family of weapons offered by Instellarms was standard issue to Imperial colonial forces, regardless of the tech level of their world of origin. This basic family of weapons allowed the Imperial Army to mobilize vast numbers of reinforcements in time of conflict, while minimizing the logistics burden of supporting forces drawn from worlds with a tech level less than 10. Worlds of TL-9 are able to sustain the weapons, with a minimum of logistics support off-loaded onto the Foreign Ministry as part of their 'Cultural and Development Program'. As such, the weapon is one of the most common found on the surplus market, and in the hands of ex-Colonial Force troops.

The Instellarms 7mm Mk X Advanced Combat Rifle is a multi-configurable weapons system, adaptable to all the fire support requirements of the Basic Imperial Squad. The choice of barrel lengths and magazine capacities allows the common receiver group to fulfill all the fire requirements of deployed squads, from long range team/squad fire support with the Heavy Barrel/Bipod configuration, to Close Combat Battle, with the SMG barrel fitted. In all cases, the weapon is capable of firing individually mounted 4cm RAM grenades, as well as mounting the 1.8cm Common Support Weapon beneath the barrel foreguard.

The Standard Mk X ACR is chambered for the standard 7mm x 30mm ETC (Electrothermal-chemical) round, and is assembled from multiple stampings of Cystaliron, thus reducing the wear and maintenance on the weapons components. It has a 'Mean Time Between Cleanings' of 100,000 rounds, depending on environmental conditions. The configuration is of the standard bullpup design, with the magazine well located behind the firing group. It is capable of single shot and five round burst auto-fire. The rear receiver group houses the magazine well, capable of accepting standard 60 round box magazines, as well as 30 round 'shorties', and either 100 or 200 round drum mags. All magazines are capable of being recharged from any Imperial Standard Power Socket. Surrounding the receiver group is the inertial damping unit, acting as a 'long recoil' device. Integral to the vestigial buttstock at the rear of the weapon, is a gyroscopic compensation unit, used to further attenuate the recoil felt by the operator. All barrel lengths are fitted with a long muzzle break, treaded to receive either a sound suppressor, or an individually launched 'shoot-through' 4cm RAM grenade.

Barrel lengths are available in the 'Standard' length of 52.5cm, or the 'Carbine' length of 39cm. A Heavy Barrel/Bipod assembly is available in 66cm length, to allow sustained fire support operations to be undertaken. A short 26.2cm barrel is available for close combat operations. All barrels are fitted with a forward foldable, vertical lockable fore grip, to allow for increased weapon control and to allow quick barrel change.

The forward portion of the weapon consists of a '3-rail' foreguard, providing protection and mounting options from the back quarter of the receiver group, to three quarters of the length of the standard weapon, or 38cm of rail length. Able to accept any 10mm Imperial Standard Mount (ISM) equipped device, options for mounting include the Combined Optic/Laser Sight Unit, Mk X, or various other illumination/pointing or electronic sight groups, as well as polearm combat fittings. Back-up iron sights are standard at each end of the rail assembly. The '3-rail' assembly covers only the right, left and top of the weapon, leaving the lower receiver and barrel housing free to accommodate the quick change barrel group and allows the mounting of the 1.8cm Common Support Weapon (detailed separately), which clips to the two side rails of the ISM.
