The Delta Forces Operations Command(DFOC) issued a solicitation for the procurement of new Projectile Assault Rifles (PAR)on October 15th, 4460. This solicitation requested a new combat rifle,specially tailored for the current and proposed future needs of the Federation Armed Forces. All variants, regardless of exact configuration, will provide the operator with the same controls layout, same handling and maintenance procedures, and same optional equipment, such as sights,scopes, also current and future attachments.
All PAR-41 rifles built share same basic action. This is a gas-operated system with direct-impingement gas drive, which has no gas piston. Instead, powder gases are fed from the barrel and through a Duratanium tube back into the receiver, and then into the cavity inside bolt carrier through the gas key. Inside the bolt carrier, powder gases push it back against the bolt, thus first causing the bolt to rotate and unlock from the barrel, and then to cycle the action. The rotary bolt has 7 radial lugs and improved extractor. Both upper and lower receiver halves are made from starship grade tritanium alloy, and connected by cross-pins.
The PAR-41S is a medium range sniper rifle variant. Barrels are of match class quality, and enclosed into a free-floated forearm. Trigger is also of match grade, fully adjustable. These rifles are fitted with proprietary sound moderator / silencer quick mount, located on the barrel just in front of the gas block. Finished to military specifications, and equipped with back-up iron sights (marked up to 600 meters and installed on folding bases). PAR-41S rifles also features a different buttstock, which is adjustable for length of pull, as well as different style forend rail system and a flash hider on the barrel. Leupold variable-power 3,5-10X sniper scope, along with Harris bipod, and a number of other accessories, including soft and hard carrying cases.
Since it's adoption in 4461, the PAR systems had been known for its reliability, serviceability, simplicity. PAR's are capable of outstanding accuracy, and many of PAR-patterned weapons are still in service with different military and law enforcement agencies throughout the Federation.

Magazine Capacity: Standard PAR 30 rounds magazine, or 150 and 250 round pouches, disintegrating plastic links.
Rate of fire, cyclic 900 rounds per minute
Effective Range: 500meter/547 yards
The Projectile Lightweight Machine Gun program was initiated by DF, as an attempt to significantly reduce combat load of the infantrymen, especially those carrying the Squad Automatic Weapons / light machine guns. The SC (Semi-cased) ammunition and guns currently are most developed, and show average 41% weight and 13% volume reduction when compared to the standard brass 6.5x45mm ammunition.
The PLMG uses gas operated action with gas piston, located below the barrel. It operates oscillating chamber, which swings sideways to eject spent case and load a fresh one, and then swings back in line with the barrel to fire the round. Feed is from specially designed disintegrating belts with plastic links. It has a quick-change barrel and fires from open bolt, in full automatic and semi-automatic modes.
The PLMG features a dual feed system, so it can alternatively use standard disintegrating belts or detachable box magazines. Belt feed unit is installed on the top of receiver, with belt feeding direction from left to right. Belt feed is operated by the side-mounted swinging lever,which is operated by cam track cut in the side of the bolt carrier
Magazine housing is located below the receiver, with magazine being inserted vertically up. Ejection window for empty cases is at the right side of receiver, just below the empty link ejection window. By default, magazine housing will accept proprietary box magazines PAR-compatible 30-round magazines. Belts are usually fed from semi-rigid “assault pouches” with 150- or 250-round capacity. These pouches are clipped to machine gun below the receiver. Dust covers protect the mag housing when not in use.
FSP (Federation Service Pistol
Year of first manufacture 4135
Type: Double Action Only
Weight, unloaded 1kg/2/2 pounds
Barrel length 127mm
Effective Range: 100meters/109 yards
With improving body armor, Delta Force issued a solicitation for the procurement of a new duty pistol in 4260. Taking the venerable CZ-75, one of the best combat pistols in existence, the pattern for the new Federation Service Pistol emerged. The FSP is a short recoil operated, locked breech pistol. It uses a fairy standard Browning locking system, with cam-shaped cut below the barrel, which lowers the barrel on recoil stroke. Barrel locks into slide with two locking lugs, located just ahead of the ejection port. The slide rides on the internal rails, machined on inside of the frame. A new cartridge was made, the 9.5x22mm. Taking a cue from other agencies this fires a 140 grain bullet at 1900fps. Hotter +P(plus pressure), and +P+ rounds are available for special units. The 140 grain +P fires at 2090fps, and the +P+ comes in two normal loads, a 125 armor piercing at 2500fps, and a 200 grain version with either Armor piercing or jacket hollow point at 2050 fps. If the +P+ is used without swapping the recoil springs, the pistol will suffer abuse and eventually fail. Occasional use only without the heavier springs.
A rarer version of the FSP is the FSP-SF, a selective-fire version of the basic pistol, which can fire either in semi-auto or in full auto, with rate of fire about 1,000 rounds per minute. The FSP-SF first appeared circa 4133 in prototype form, and is intended for special police and military forces. To help control the gun, a spare magazine can be fitted upside down into special holder under the barrel; it then serves as a forward grip.

The PSMG had been developed by in the early 42nd century. It first appeared on the markets in 4142. The key idea behind the PSMG was to create lightweight and powerful submachine gun, that also will be easier to make than most SM;s, being targeted primary for the law enforcement market.
The PSMG is a blowback-operated select-fire submachine gun, being fired from the closed bolt. The receiver is made from the polymer, the controls are fully ambidextrous. It can be fired in full-auto, single shot, or 3 round bursts (optional). It incorporates a bolt hold-open device, which traps the bolt in the open position when the last round from magazine had been fired. The PSMG has side-folding buttstock and two set of picatinny rails which accept a wide variety equipment, such as optional sights, laser pointers, tactical grips and flashlights. The barrel has quick mount for snap-on silencer.

Browning M4200 machine gun is a development of the famous American company Browning Arms Company. It is intended to replace the venerable Rheinmetall RMG 50 RMG 50 heavy machine gun in certain vehicle applications, on armored vehicles and in helicopters, in manned or remotely operated turrets and mounts. It provides higher reliability,accuracy, and easier maintenance, plus a greater tactical flexibility. Development of the Browning M4200 machine gun commenced in 4207 and is still in mass production.
Like it's predecessor, the Rheinmetall RMG 50 machine gun, the Browning M2200 is an electrically operated, externally powered weapon. It uses internal electric motor which operates bolt group via gearbox-driven crank. The major differences in the ammunition. Advances in chemicals and metallurgy allow the M4200 a significant increase in power with the adoption of caseless ammunition for the .551 BMG. The .551BMG is a caseless round and has a 65 gram(1003 grain) bullet that travels at 1150 m/s (3773fps). An energy improvement of over 100% on the .50BMG and 50% on the .50 Super that became the new standard with the adoption of the RMG 50.

Overall Length: 400mm/15.75 inches
Effective Range: up to 400 meters/436yards against point targets, up to 650 meters/711yards against area targets
The GL1 is a four-shot, breech-loading weapon with rifled barrel. The loading is achieved by sliding the tritanium barrel forward, then inserting the bloc of ammunition into the breech and sliding the loaded barrel back into the battery. The self-cocking firing unit with its own trigger is located at the rear of the GL1 receiver, also made from tritanium alloy. The manual safety in the form of the swinging flap is located inside the trigger guard, just ahead of the trigger. The rear part of the barrel is covered with polymer hand-grip. The standard Gl1 easily installs on the PAR-41 type rifle, and installation requires about 3 minutes of work and a standard screwdriver for clamping screws. If necessary, GL1 can be mounted on a separate shoulder-stock, used as a stand-alone weapon. Standard sights for GL1 are of ladder type, and graduated from 50 to 300 meters in 50m increments. The optional quadrant sight can be installed on the left side of the PAR-41 carrying handle, allowing aiming at the ranges of up to 600 meters.

Developed after the introduction of VX armor made Phaser weapons less effective. the BPPE is become a staple of the Delta Force and it's auxiliaries. While not as tough as mainstay weapons of many armies, the BPPE has a unique purpose. Like most of the energy weapons, it has the ability to kill, but unlike many armies the BPP can also stun most lifeforms. A less than lethal option is desirable in a hand weapon as it allows a more measured approach to conflicts.
The mark 1will the most widely available version in the Delta Forces, once manufacture catches up with demand

The older phaser light machine guns, usually positioned on it's flat tripod, required a gun crew of four operators. In theory they could fire 400-600 bolts per minute, a figure that was to more than double by the end of the Tzenkethi War. The reality however was that these early machine guns would rapidly overheat and become inoperative. It took a generational leap in cooling technology for the phaser type of LMG to overcome deficiencies. It's standard practice to fire in bursts to limit the heat the weapon does gain and to conserve energy. With the newer advancements in PPE, this weapon maintains it's edge.
