  • Argentine Assault Rifles

    FARA-83

    Real story: Budgetary restrictions led to the cessation of official production in 1984 after a little over 1000 of them had been made. Very few of them have been produced since them, and it is a mystery who those ones were produced for. The weapon is constructed by simple means, only the stock and handguard being made of glass-reinforced plastic. The front sight has a tritium post for low-light operation. An optional bipod is made for this weapon, and the sights have tritium inlays for use in poor lighting conditions.

    Twilight 2000 story: This weapon was introduced shortly before the Twilight War. Only a little over 1000 were made before the war, and even fewer were produced during the war.

    Merc 2000 story: Very few of these weapons were produced for the Argentine Army (a little over 1000), but many more were produced and bought by mercenary outfits around the globe.

  • Armenian Assault Rifles

    K-3

    Real Story: Though the K-3 was first revealed in 1996, by 2000 only about 40 had been built, and the Armenian government had not yet authorized series production. Though similar in appearance to the British L-85, the K-3 is based on the tried-and-true Kalashnikov action. The K-3 may is normally used with iron sights, but may be fitted with the PSO-1 4x sight of the SVD sniper rifle. The K-3 can only be used right handed, as left-handed use gets in the way of case ejection and can jam the weapon. The K-3 uses AK-74 magazines.

    Twilight 2000 story: Seeing the writing on the wall, the Armenian government authorized production of the K-3 in early 1996, though many more resources were placed into domestic AK-74 and AKM production. The K-3 was primarily used by Armenias fledgling special operations units.

    Merc 2000 story: See the Real Story above.

  • Austrian Assault Rifles

    Steyr AUG

    Real Story: Originally designed as a technology demonstrator, the Steyr AUG (Armee Universal Gewehr, or Army Universal Rifle), became wildly successful, and versions of the weapon ranging from submachineguns to civilian rifles were produced. It was first produced in 1978, and it became one of the few bullpup military rifles used in number by world armies. The body and magazines of the weapon are made of high-impact plastic, while the internal workings and the barrel are made of high-quality steel. The result is a weapon that is light, handy, yet accurate. The weapon includes a 1.5x battle sight that further improves accuracy. In 1997, an "A2" model was introduced; this allows the use of standard NATO/US magazines, as well as replacing the standard carrying handle with a Picatinney rail to allow the mounting of alternate optical sights. The AUG is used by Austria, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, Oman, Malaysia, and Saudi Arabia; in addition, British soldiers stationed in the Falklands also use the AUG. The Australians and the Malaysians license-produce the AUG. Several interchangeable barrels can be fitted to the AUG, allowing the AUG to perform the roles of submachinegun, carbine, or heavy-barreled automatic rifle. In addition, a barrel exists that allows the AUG to function as a squad automatic rifle, and a parts kit that allows the AUG to be converted to a submachinegun firing 9mm Parabellum ammunition (see Austrian Submachineguns). The AUGs trigger is two-stage: pull it back a certain distance, and you get semi-automatic fire, and pull it back all the way for full automatic fire. This can sometimes lead to "accidental automatic fire."

    Twilight 2000 Story: Similar to the Real Story; however, after the November nuclear exchange, production of the AUG virtually stopped in Austria and Malaysia. For at least 20 years after the Twilight War, the only country who produced the AUG was the Australians. The "A2" version is also a rarity in the Twilight 2000 world, except as produced by the Australians.

    Merc 2000 Story: Similar to the Real Story; the AUG is a big hit with mercenary groups worldwide, especially the "A2" version.

    Steyr-Mannlicher ACR

    Real Story: This was another candidate for the M-16 replacement, one of two from Europe (the other is the G-11). The Steyr-Mannlicher is made almost entirely of plastic and is a bullpup design with an integral 1.5x-3.5x sight. It also has a sighting rib for instinctive shooting, and wide winter trigger guards. The weapon must use a special bayonet designed for the weapon. The Steyr-Mannlicher fires saboted flechettes; though the case is of 5.56mm diameter, the Steyr-Mannlicher cannot fire other 5.56mm rounds. Only a handful of Steyr-Mannlicher ACRs were produced; just enough were made for the US ACR trials.

    Twilight 2000 Story: The gun is used by the Austrian Army and also by some Bosnian Army troops which maintain loose contact with Austria. The Bosnians found them almost impossible to make spare parts for them doestically, and by 2001, almost no one was actually using the rifle. In addition, the handful of US examples of the weapon are all missing.

    FNC Standard

    Real Story: The FNC was first produced in the late 1970s as an improved version of the FN CAL. It was intended to address the problems the CAL suffered from difficult environments, and to keep functioning even when dirty. Like the CAL, it is basically a scaled-down version of the FAL, and has a similar operating system. It is easy to clean, strip, and reassemble. The folding stock folds to the right, and the FNC uses standard US/NATO magazines. The rifle is used by Belgium, Indonesia, Latvia, and Nigeria, and several other unnamed countries. In addition, the FNC is used in a much-modified form by Sweden (the CGA-5).

    Twilight 2000 Story: This weapon is so ubiquitous that is can be found almost anywhere, though production in Belgium virtually ceased after the French invasion of Belgium, leaving Indonesia as the almost sole producer of FNCs. In the Twilight 2000 world, Latvia is not using the FNC. US Army Special Forces operating in France or French-occupied territory were also often seen carrying FNCs. FNCs taken from captured Belgian troops were often handed out to French militia forces and Belgian or Dutch civilians loyal to France.

    Merc 2000 story: As the FNC can be found almost in every corner of the globe, it is a common weapon in the hands of mercenary and "unofficial" troops of several governments worldwide.
