Standard issue for Warrior ground troops and assault teams. Also found in the emergency lockers of shuttles and Vipers. This is a close combat weapon that is ‘handy’ and more powerful then the blaster pistol.
The assault rifle was an early and succesful design for the Colonial R&D labs. It has proven its worth many times over.

Primarily a vehicle mounted weapon. Found on Landrams and Powersleds also used as ground protection for shuttles. It lacks a Stun capacity.

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.

Laser/Rocket Carbine

The Colonial Military employed a hybrid Gyro Rocket/Laser Carbine for a number of yahrens. It was a reasonably successful design that was later passed on to the Colonial Militias. The over under weapon has a laser mounted on the top and a pump action gyro rocket underneath. There is no Electro laser or stun capacity.

A later variant employed a blaster instead of a laser. This particular combination is still in use in the Colonial Military. There is no Electrolaser or stun capacity.

GyrocAmmunitions

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

APEX: Armor Piercing EXplosive. This is the standard military round. The APEX round halves the DR of armor struck. Impact damage depends on the range from the muzzle the target is.

An enhanced version of an earlier design. The Electro Magnetic Pulse Guns are designed to fry electronics, (especially Cylons!) with a short ranged and very powerful Electro Magnetic Pulse. Early models were very successful against the Cylons in the early stages of the war. Later Cylons had their circuitry hardened and shielded making the weapons virtually useless. Researchers working in the Fleet have enhanced the design producing a weapon that is able to overcome even shielded circuitry. EMP guns do no damage to flesh & blood. A successful hit neutralizes the target’s electronics on a 3 dice roll of 16 or less, causing a surge that runs through the entire target. Subtract 1 from the chance of knocking out electronics per 20 points of combined DR and hit points that electronics possess; roll once for a single integrated system (like a Cylon) or individually for separate subsystems carried by the same target. For every point the roll succeeds by, the target’s electronics are disabled for 2 turns. Success by 10 or more, or any critical success, permanently fries the target’s electronics.

Solenite Charges

The basic solenite charge is a small but powerful explosive made from the highly explosive tylium fuel that spacecraft use. It is multi-purpose in that it can be thrown or simply set as a standard explosive. They have a simple switch on top that is pressed to activate and turned to set the timer or to activate the impact fuse. When activated, the orange light comes on to warn that the weapon is armed. The weapon can also be detonated by remote link. When detonated, the weapon acts like a shaped charge against the item it is placed against. This makes it of limited usefulness when being thrown. It does 6dx4 crushing damage.

Medium Solenite charge designed to be placed on a target with a choice of time delay, remote activation or motion, sound or light activated detonation. A magnetic pad and removable adhesive surface aid in placing the mine. It does 6dx8 crushing damage.

The Radon Bomb is a large solenite charge. It comes in a cylinder with an activation switch on top. It has a timer and remote link for detonation. Like most charges, the Radon Bomb acts like shaped charge against its intended target. It does 8dx8 crushing damage.
