FIREARMS

Warfare and violence is as much a part of our human heritage as language and love. As long as the human species exist, conflict will always be inevitable, no matter how much we may wish it be otherwise.

And as long as warfare exists, soldiers will be needed to invade, fight for, and occupy territory. The power and sophistication of the weapons available to them could well be the deciding factor between victory and defeat.

The technologies listed here are infantry and squad-support level weapons. Tactical and larger scale weapons will be addressed in their own sections.
