Name: M56 "SmartGun"
Notes :"The M-56 Smart Gun fills the Squad Automatic role in
a USCM section. A Smart Gun needs special training to use and is only issued
to such "Smart Gunners". The length of the weapon is 122 cm, with a straight
rear firing grip and a fore firing grip. In addition, a cocking handle
is mounted on the right side of the gun, for manual cocking once a new
ammo drum has been attached (reliability drops to UR on the first trigger
pull if the weapon is left to cock automatically).
The gun is mounted on a servo-assisted gyro-stabilisation arm attached
to an armoured torso harness. The weapon has an inbuilt smart-targeting
system, consisting of a targeting processor in the harness, infrared sensors
in the headset and above the barrel of the gun, and the gyro-balancing
servo arm. When a target is designated through the headest and barrel sensors,
the servo arm immediately moving the gun to track the target. Changing
targets is done simply by directing the gun toward a new target. The electronicpulse
action allows great control over the rate of fire of the weapon, which
is controlled by a toggle switch on the fore grip. It can fire a four-round
burst (3-round burst r) and has a full-auto fire mode of 60 rounds."
