So, spurred on by a comment by Pat, I've decided to restart the old BFG3000 thread, where we post weapons we'd like to see statted, Spycraft style
Although we got quite a list going last time, I doubt anybody saved the thread, so we'll just have to start from the beginning again, but that's okay, since many of these weapons are pure awesome
A couple of things to keep in mind before you start posting your favourite weapons: Explain clearly what kind of weapon it is, how it works, what it does, and where you've gotten it from. This is essential information the Crafty guys need to make stats outta the weapons. If you have images, or a link to a video showing it in action, or a link to a site with information, like Wikipedia, then that's even better.
Also, I know there are a lot of gunbunnies on these forums, so please stick to videogames, movies or books, unless it's a unique/special/fairly odd weapon rarely seen in real life.
And now, to kick off things... the Davy Crockett
, a portable tactical nuclear recoilless rifle that fires W54 nuclear warheads
, the smallest warheads developed by the US with a yield of 10 to 20 tons.
By portable, I mean lugged around by a three-man firing team, and fired from a tripod or a truck/APC. Still, I could totally see a Grunt lugging one around for when he wants some extra bang
. And yes, this was an actual weapon developed in the mid-fifties, and deployed by US troops from 61 to 71, with a total of 2,100 made.
