LRRMFs begin crash modernization program!

Today, Duke Roberto, commander of the LRRMFs, announced that the LRRA would undertake what was described as a "major program of modernization" aimed at updating and improving LRRMFs capabilities against modern threats such as ETC cannons, tactical lasers, ever evolving stealth technology, and new, ultra high speed missiles.

As such, the LRRA is looking for development partners and technical guidance in the construction of several new systems.

Points of Interest/Improvment:

-Tactical lasers
While the LRRN and LRRAF both operate large, strategic lasers in the ABM and anti-aircraft role, they lack the utility to be transported and operated on anything besides a specialized platform. We are looking for something that can be mounted on ships as CIWS, on tactical transports, and carried on mobile platforms on the back of a turretless CV-90.

-ETC cannons
The LRRA is looking for an ETC cannon system with better penetration power than the 135mm heavy anti-tank gun on the MBT-5A, and modest power requirements (modest in that they can run off a tank class hybrid gas/electric or fuel cell system) and weight comparable to modern 125mm tank cannons.

-Sea Stealth
While the F-3 and F-4 both have stealth construction and excellent anti-stealth systems, and the LRRA uses stealth design features on tank turrets and the new CV-90 APC, the LRRMFs have no stealth ships larger than frigates. (Howlin' Wolf frigate, Robert Byrd Frigate, Skjold MOD missile boat have stealth features). The LRRN is looking for a large, destroyer sized stealth ship with a large missile capacity and guns larger than 140mm. Such a ship can include ETC cannons and lasers.

-RAMJET Missiles
The LRRAF already has RAMJET AAMs and SAMs, but there are no RAMJET ASMs or cruise missiles in the LRR inventory.

-Assault Rifles
The LRRA is in need of an upgrade in basic soldier equipment, namely a new assault rifle. The LRRA official assault rifle is the Ak-74, but the Ak-47 is still used in large numbers, as is a myriad of outdated eastern bloc weaponry. The LRRA needs a rifle with a maximum range of over 400m, a caliber of 7.62mm or 9mm parabellum (so as to conform with Ak ammunition types), a high standard of reliability, and a weight below 3lbs.

Is there anyone able to supply us with such weaponry, or the production rights to such weaponry? It would go a long way in improving the LRRMFs.

We believe that the various military arms companies of the Imperium can meet some of your requirements. Phoenix Defense Industries has the M56 Pulse Rifle in 6.8mm but it can be converted to the required calibre. PDI also has the Fasthawk cruise missile with a range of 1400 miles and a smaller Mach 5 ASM variant with a 1,000 pound warhead. Arkangel'skie Voennye Systemy can contribute the 120mm soft recoil ETC that is mounted on the ST-1 Firefly infantry support tank.

DGNT, this is supposed to be modern and early post-modern modernizations, not futuretech. :cry:

Scandanavian States, would it be possible to procure the production rights for the fasthawk ASM, the 150mm ETC on the Jackson, and the 80mm ETC cannon on your APC?

I trust this is modern or early post-modern adaptable.

But yeah, this seems pretty good. All I need is the lasers, new ships, and assault rifle now.

The rifles are modern enough :P

Yes, the LRRMF may. It should be noted that the ASM variant of the Fasthawk is called the Seahawk.

[The rifle I presented is completely modern tech, there is nothing futuristic about it.]

We have a tank cannon that is superior to ETC weapons:

RA-GZ15 80mm Gas-Gun Tank Cannon
Gas-guns are an interesting system used only in laboratories up till now to get projectiles moving extremely fast. By compressing a chamber full of hydrogen with a weak(by railgun standards), railgun driven piston, then igniting the hydrogen, a projectile can theoretically be moved at the speed of sound in hydrogen, which is 4km per second. Obviously outside of laboratory conditions this speed is drastically reduced to only maybe 3km per second, but stop and think; your typical 120mm abrams gun only gets a muzzle velocity of 1.77km per second. And whats even more amazing is the improved ammo capacity; all thats needed is a tank of hydrogen off to the side, because the bullets themselves need no other propellant, making it completely caseless. So we're looking at a higher ammo capacity, much higher ROF, and improved anti-armor abilities.......
Ammo Capacity: 350
Range: (Technically) 25 km
Rate of Fire: Up to 225 Shots per minute
$1.8 million

(statistics shown are for standard ammo cap in abrams sized tanks)
