The Advanced Combat Rifle or ACR is a progressive development of the Assault Rifle, a projectile-firing small arms weapon.

Description / Specifications[edit]

The advanced combat rifle (ACR) typically fires either a high explosive (HE) bullet at 900 meters per second or a discarding sabot (DS) at 1,200 meters per second. A magazine containing 20 rounds is inserted into the underside of the weapon behind the pistol grip. The weapon may be fired either automatically or semiautomatically (as with the assault rifle).

History & Background / Dossier[edit]

Standard equipment includes an electronic battlefield sight, which incorporates both light amplification and passive IR, visual magnification, and a laser range finder which may also be used as a target painting device. The weapon is also gyroscopically stabilized during firing. A sling is provided along with the weapon, and the muzzle of the rifle includes an integral flash suppressor and an adapter for launching a RAM shoot-through grenade.
