The Colt M36 Rifle is the standard infantry weapon of UTF forces, including the UTF Army and UTF Marine Corps.
The M36 was designed by Colt Firearm designer Jonathan Stafford in the year 2210. The M36 relies on electrothermal-chemical ignition of cartridges in order to increase accuracy and muzzle velocity, and uses the powerful 6.8x31mm caseless cartridge to deliver powerful kinetic energy into its target.
The M36 is a select-fire weapon, and can be fired in semi-auto mode, 3 round burst mode, and full-auto mode. The weapon also comes with a large selection of high-tech scopes, which can help detect targets, provide aiming assistance, and gives the user information about how many rounds the weapon has left. As of 2259, the weapon is still in service.
Alright, here’s my question: Is my weapon realistic? Could you realistically get a caseless, ETC Rifle chambered in 6.8x31mm to work?
