CQB 50cal : Preview by Shimmering-Sword CQB 50cal : Preview by Shimmering-Sword
I have a bit of a project going on by the side, working on it a little every few days. I'm not sure how far I will render it, it's just a good practice of my technique.

Here's a preview crop, and a stand alone shot of my 50 cal rifle (cqb short barrel).

The design is very similar to the CARB in Avatar universe

Clean boxy guns, a common concept.

For CQB use, you could go caseless, you could also try telescopic rounds.The military was messing around with those as a way to save weight, while still being able to carry the same weight of the bullet. (don't ask me how it all works, they've been doing tests with an M249) It's all just a suggestion. You may have to create a whole new round though. something that either hits as hard as a 50cal or a magazine that'll hold a good amount of ammunition. (drum/ barrel magazine comes to mind) Like the others have said, I think you've got a whole lot of potential to make your ideas a reality.

Got a link to any pics of such telescopic rounds?
Caseless is pretty dead afaik, saves brass, but little else.
The purpose of the gun is teamwide armor penetrating capability, versus heavy infantry.

Unfortunately the last time I read about the telescopic rounds it was in the Army Times. I can't find the article anymore and I've been looking online. Now I have found a picture of it: [link]

It is the one on the left.

armor penetrating capability, versus heavy infantry... Is it going to be general issued to everyone, or is it a specialized like a grenadier, SAW, or a DMR?
