Colonial Civilian Weapons

The Colonial Civilian market had many options available to the discriminating small arms buyer. Though the Colonial Military has settled on Blasters as the standard small arms there are many other alternatives available.
Blasters, Lasers, slug throwers, rocket guns, stun weapons, explosives and melee weapons are available for a price. Legality varies from point to point and within the Fugitive Fleet most lethal energy weapons and virtually all explosives are heavily restricted.
The weapons listed below are representitive of type but are by no means a complete list of all the various manufacturers and kinds of lasers, blasters or whatever available.

Civilian blaster 1
Garigan Model 9 Light Blaster

The Garigan Model 9 is an excellant example of the basic Blaster pistol. It is a high quality weapon but does not include a built in Electro Laser so it lacks a stun capacity. Security has confiscated most of these weapons over the years and possession of one, without special authorization, is a crime. However, some are still at large and can be had on the Black Market. Private Guards can be authorized to carry a blaster. The G9 is small enough to be worn concealed in a shoulder holster.

Civ Heavy blaster
Raygen Pulse Blaster

civ hvy blaster 2
Raygen Pulse Blaster Enhanced(Accuracy 10)

holster
Popular holster rig for the Raygen series.

The Raygen series of Heavy Blaster pistols are some of the highest quality weapons made by Colonial Industry. They were built to military specs and have as much knock down power as the standard military heavy blaster. The main difference is a lack of stun capacity.
Though a superb weapon they are (were) very expensive, a factor that limited their appeal. They are rather heavy, bulky and are difficult to conceal.

Weapon Name/Type = Orion Trade Blaster
Damage and Type = 6d Impaling
Snap Shot = 10
Accuracy = 6
½ Damage Range = 300
Maximum Range = 450

orion blaster
Orion Trade Blaster

With the growing popularity of blasters the Orion’s saw an opportunity to carve out a niche in the market. The Trade Blaster is a cheap and powerful weapon that is stamped out in the shops of the Orion Trade Ships to meet the growing demand.
Orion Trade Blasters are stripped down, no frills weapons. They are inexpensive (compared to Colonial Heavy Blasters) and are pretty reliable. They are light weight and have a slim profile allowing them to be concealed under a jacket and they are easily maintained. Their construction makes them easily and cheaply manufactured in any well equipped machine shop. The safety is a simple mechanical device and there are no readouts or digital functions. They lack a stunner and are not known for a high degree of accuracy.

Weapon Name/Type = Phalcon 3 Holdout Blaster
Damage and Type = 2d+6 imp
Snap Shot = 10
Accuracy = 4
½ Damage Range = -na-
Maximum Range = 200
Weapon Weight = 1.5

Cost = $3,000
Hold Out Penalty/Bonus = +2

small blaster
Phalcon Holdout Blaster

This is a small concealable blaster pistol (+2 to Holdout) it can be hidden in a pocket or ankle holster. (This is illegal in the Fleet!) The Phalcon have very few metal parts, and the small power cell make it hard to find with a scan. They are a very low powered blaster with limited range and knock down ability. The Phalcon is definately a back up weapon.

Civilian Lasers and Electro Lasers

The laser was the standard Colonial sidearm for over a 150 yahrens. The technology was perfected and enhanced until it reached its current state. Though Blasters have replaced lasers as the basic military small arm technology, lasers remain common in the civilian sector.

Variations in lasers, such as between Orion, Delphian, Colonial and other racial designs, is primarily variations in range, number of shots and weight. The basic ‘kill’ power of the different designs is essentially the same.

Weapon Name/Type = Starling Laser Pistol
Damage and Type = 3d+2 imp or Stun (see description)
Snap Shot = 10
Accuracy = 13
½ Damage Range = 450 Stun = 50
Maximum Range = 900 Stun = 100
Weapon Weight = 2.5

Starling Laser Pistol with Stunner atachment

laser1
Colonial Starling Laser Pistol

This was the standard side arm of Colonial Warriors for almost a century. Minor variations and improvements were made, but the basic design held steady for the entire run. The Starling was only phased out after it became obvious that it simply could not be improved enough to counter the reflective coating of the Cylon Centurions. The Starling has an almost cherished place in the image and legends of the old Warriors and civilian versions (identical to the old military ones) are popular sellers in the Colonies.
The basic Starling does not have a stun capacity, an enhanced version with a top mounted Electro Laser Stunner is common variant..

Weapon Name/Type = Colonial Laser Carbine
Damage and Type = 4d+2 imp or Stun (see description)
Snap Shot = 10
Accuracy = 14
½ Damage Range = 600 Stun = 100
Maximum Range = 1,200 Stun = 200
Weapon Weight = 9
Rate of Fire = 3~ Stun = 1
Shots in Magazine/Power Cell = 20/2C cells
Minimum Strength to Use = 9
Recoil = 0
Cost = $4,500
Hold Out Penalty/Bonus = -1

laser carbine
Laser Carbine

The Colonial Military’s Laser Carbine hung on awhile longer then the Starlings, but eventually it was also phased out in favor of Blaster variants. The carbine did have a stun capacity.
The carbine has remained in production and has enjoyed strong sales in the outer colonies.
Stun ability. This is a low powered Electro Laser charge that ionizes the air, creating a path that an electric charge follows to the target. The weapon can be set to Stun or Kill. They are most effective in dry environments. High humidity or wet areas can result in the bolt jumping off its path. Stun effects have a much shorter range then a standard laser.
Stun charges require the target to make a roll vs HT – half the damage that got through the targets DR. Stunning last 20 minutes – HT and the target is at -2DX for an additional 20-HT minutes. A Kill setting also requires a roll vs HT – half the damage that passed DR. Failure means the heart stops and death will follow without immediate aid.

Weapon Name/Type = Galleon MF4, Multifunction Pistol
Damage and Type = Laser 2d+2 imp, Blaster 4d imp, Stun
Snap Shot = 10
Accuracy = 12
½ Damage Range = Laser 300 Stun = 50

Galleon
Galleon MF4

The Galleon MF4 is a multifunction pistol that combines a blaster, laser and electro laser stunner functions. The Galleon was an attempt to fill the gap between lasers and blasters during the transition period. The manufacturer thought that the multi use weapon would appeal to spacers and even wrangled extensive trials with the Colonial Military. Though the MF4 was not picked up by the military, and never achieved the hoped for popularity, it still managed to achieve financial success.
One feature of the Galleon weapons was the use of a non standard power cell. Though the Galleon cell was similar enough in design to work in a standard recharge unit, the weapon, either through design constraints or as a marketing ploy, can not accept regular C cells. The weapon is shipped with six Galleon power cells and more could be purchased after market. ($20 each)

Weapon Name/Type = Delphian Standard Laser Pistol
Damage and Type = 2d+2 imp or Stun (see description)

Delphian Laser pistol
Delphian Standard Laser Pistol

Delphian Standard Laser Pistol. Until the war with the Cylons forced design changes. This was the standard laser pistol turned out by the Delphian armaments factories. A fairly peaceful race the Delphians never felt a desire for a wide range of weapon types or a compulsion for new and better killing tools. Though a high quality and well made weapon that yields more shots per charge then any other hand laser, it is not popular because it is one of the lowest powered hand lasers available.
All Delphian lasers have Stun ability. This is a low powered Electro Laser charge that ionizes the air, creating a path that an electric charge follows to the target. The weapon can be set to Stun or Kill. They are most effective in dry environments. High humidity or wet areas can result in the bolt jumping off its path. Stun effects have a much shorter range then a standard laser.
Stun charges require the target to make a roll vs HT – half the damage that got through the targets DR. Stunning last 20 minutes – HT and the target is at -2DX for an additional 20-HT minutes. A Kill setting also requires a roll vs HT – half the damage that passed DR. Failure means the heart stops and death will follow without immediate aid.

Minimum Strength to Use = 9
Recoil = 0
Cost = $3,000
Hold Out Penalty/Bonus = -2

Delphinian Laser
Delphian Heavy Laser Pistol

The Delphian Heavy Laser Pistol was designed to try and meet the needs to destroy Cylons. Like the Standard Laser it is well made and very efficient. The up-gunned version, though an improvement over the Standard was no better then the Colonial Starling in knock down ability. Its increased range did little to make up for its increased weight.

Weapon Name/Type = Orion Hand Laser
Damage and Type = 2d+4 imp or Stun (see description)
Snap Shot = 10
Accuracy = 11
½ Damage Range = 300 Stun = 50
Maximum Range = 800 Stun = 100
Weapon Weight = 1.5
Rate of Fire = 3~ Stun = 1
Shots in Magazine/Power Cell = 15/c
Minimum Strength to Use = 5
Recoil = 0
Cost = $1,700
Hold Out Penalty/Bonus = 0

Orion Laser
Orion Hand Laser

The Orion Hand Laser is slightly more powerful then the Delphian Standard Laser but that is about all that can be said for it. The design of the weapon is not attractive to most humans but it is very light in weight. The weapon does have a stun function.

The Orions, when faced with the need for a more powerful side arm, switched to Blaster technology rather then try and upgrade their lasers.

Weapon Name/Type = Jax Mini Laser Pistol
Damage and Type = 2d imp
Snap Shot = 8
Accuracy = 8
½ Damage Range = 100
Maximum Range = 250
Weapon Weight = .75

Shots in Magazine/Power Cell = 6/a
Minimum Strength to Use = -na-
Recoil = 0
Cost = $1,800
Hold Out Penalty/Bonus = +3

minilaser pistol
Jax Mini Laser

The Jax was designed to be a back up weapon. Small, light and easily hidden it is a weapon of last resort. The beam is weaker and the range shorter then a standard laser but the fact that the designers got as much power as they did out of the tiny power cell is remarkable in itself. The Jax has a tendency of burning out power cells leaving them useless for recharging.

Weapon Name/Type = Electro Laser, Concealable
Damage and Type = Imp 2d+1 STUN

Electro laser
Concealable Electro Laser or ‘Zap’

A beam weapon also called a ‘Shocker’ or ‘Zap Gun’ that does stunning and damage via a discharge of electricity. A low power laser ionizes the air, creating a path that the electric charge follows to the target. The weapon can be set to Stun or Kill. They are most effective in dry environments. High humidity or wet areas can result in the bolt jumping off its path.
Stun charges require the target to make a roll vs HT – half the damage that got through the targets DR. Stunning last 20 minutes – HT and the target is at -2DX for an additional 20-HT minutes. A Kill setting also requires a roll vs HT – half the damage that passed DR. Failure means the heart stops and death will follow without immediate aid.
A ‘Shocker’ is an Electro Laser that has only a Stun setting, there is no kill setting. An armorer roll can alter the circuitry to allow a kill setting.
Shockers are legal in the Fleet. Modified Shockers or “Zaps” are NOT legal.

Numos

Numo’s are a slug firing weapon that uses compressed air and a spring to propel the slug. The basic Numo is a single shot weapon that must be loaded and hand pumped before each shot.
The Numo Autos use a preloaded cylinder of compressed air to allow multiple shots without reloading or pumping. In most models a tubular, under barrel magazine holds the slugs which are spring fed, one at a time, into the chamber. The air cylinder can be recharged anywhere an O2 bottle can be refilled. A standard cylinder is able to power 24 slugs, large cylinders up to 50.
The shot from a Numo Auto tends to be slightly weaker then the same type of shot fired from a Standard Numo. This is compensated by the ability to shoot more then once!

Numo ammunition is most commonly a metal slug. This is widely used in Agro colonies for hunting and pest control. It has excellant knockdown power for small game and is effective against unarmored targets. It is also easily stamped out in a simple press using cheap metals. However, monocrys fabrics are particularly good at stopping Numo slugs leading to the developement of Numo Darts.
The darts come in several varieties, the most common being a simple, hardened and shaped dart designed to better penetrate monocrys and other non rigid armor.
Other varieties have been modified to deliver poisons, sedatives and similar substances.
Some specialty darts carry tracking devices and others have been designed to deliver a small explosive charge that detonates in the body.
Darts require finer tolerences in their manufacture in order to ensure flight stability (without taking into consideration payloads) so they are more expensive and less common on Agro Colonies, where they may be kept in reserve for emergencies.

Despite efforts to increase their hitting power, Numos are obsolete technology but can be found on low tech agro colonies and in the hands of small time criminals because they can be easily produced in any machine shop, require no special high tech ammunition, are easily maintained and are almost completely silent. Since they do not employ power cells they are difficult to locate by scanning and can be stored for long periods without fear of the power cell draining. Because of these features they are popular with the criminal elements of the Fleet. Generally legal to own, (though some ammunition types are not) they may not be carried concealed.
Within the Fugitive Fleet ALL types of Dart ammo are illegal.

Numos are virtually useless against a Cylon regardless of ammo type. They are also useless against most rigid combat armor.

auto numo pistol
Automatic Numo Pistol

Numo designs vary enormously depending on the shop or craftsman that manufactured the weapon. No major manufacturer has made a line of Numos in at least seventy yahren. Those that are available are the results of short runs by local companies or custom work. The dimension and weight of slugs and darts are of a standard that dates back over a hundred yahrens and the convention is followed closely to ensure that existing ammo remains compatible.

Standard, single shot Numo Carbines are almost unheard of. Anyone that makes the effort to manufacture one makes it automatic. However, it is customary to make a carbine switchable. If one is used on a primitive planet where recharging air cylinders is difficult, then the weapon can be used in a single shot pump mode. Note: A hand pumped round has more hitting power then the discharge of the cylinder.

Gyro Rocket Weapons

The gyro rocket weapons, such as those produced by the Latham Corporation, saw some success during the developmental period for hand lasers. More powerful then Numos and more reliable then lasers (at that time) they were effective in taking down the Cylon Centurion of the time. Unfortunately Cylon Centurions became tougher, with thicker carapaces, and the rocket rounds simply reached their limit in ability while maintaining their compact size. The rapid advancements in hand lasers (and later blasters) left the gyro rockets far behind.
The military adapted gyrocs into successful hybrid combination carbines and continue with variations even now. Hybrid pistol combinations were too heavy and bulky to enjoy much success.

Gyro Rocket Carbine

The carbine uses the same round as the pistol, its only real advantage is in improved accuracy over distances resulting from the longer barrel imparting greater stability to the rocket’s flight.

Gyroc Ammunitions

The Gyrocs fire .75 calibre stabilized rockets. These come in a variety of kinds.
