  • New Cav Weapon

    According to An Cosantoir, all cav units are now issued with the short barrelled Steyr.

    Yet I have never seen them with it. Has anyone else?

    Its just a shorter barrell... there were a few pictures in an cosantoir. The wing use the shorter barrell also.


    [edit]
    I have only seen the short barrell Styer during the Wings demo

      Andy, we all know its just a shorter barrel, we have seen the pictures. The question asked was about the cav and the alleged use by them of the short barrel ....... not about pictures or any other unit.

      Concentrate a bit more please.

      Regards etc

            Theres a rumour they brought them in because the cav were poking there eyes out on the longer barrel ones

            dont shoot the messenger
            Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
            Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
            The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
            The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
            The best lack all conviction, while the worst
            Are full of passionate intensity.

                          Their not - its just a normal AUG A1 like all the rest of the DF uses (excepting tHe ARW AUG-P) but with 16'' barrels as opposed to standard 20''.

                          Thast one of the benefits of the weapon system you don't buy a whole one, just the reelvant useful part.

                            Just in relation to you implying that they just acquired new short barrels for the cav's steyr's,they purchased new rifles. The barrel is a serialled part of the weapon,you cant mix and match different serialled parts.

                              So if I'm using a rifle, and the barrel cracks, or develops some other fault that makes it unservicable, the DF needs to buy a whole new AUG, instead of just replacing the barrel for a new one?
