The Wasp was released in YE 32.

Nomenclature Information

Type: LSSR-01a - Railgun based

Model: LSSR-01a - Original model of the rifle, basis for any further development of rifles.

Role: The main role of the rifle is for anti-personnel use, eliminating high-value targets without carrying around a heavy rifle. It has extremely limited anti-armor use, not being a heavy enough hitter to be an effective counter to PAs.

Length: 163cm/64.17in long Barrel Length: 98cm/38.58in long Munitions: .300 Cranth Magnum Mass: 10.6kg/23.4lbs unloaded, 11.1kg/24.4lbs when loaded. Maximum Range: 6,000m Muzzle Velocity: 4,000 m/s Rate of Fire: Semi-automatic (Bolt-action available) Recoil: Mid-range. Easy to deal with if placed with a bipod. Can safely and accurately be fired from any position without fear of self-injury.

Discharge Information

Ammunition Types:

  • Standard - Grey tipped - Simple jacketed round, no caveats. Tier 2, Medium Anti-Personnel
  • Armor Piercing - Blue tipped - Full metal jacket boat-tail round specifically designed for Match purposes. Tungsten penetrator cap with copper jacketed steel core. Tier 4, Light Anti-Armor
  • Tracer - Green tipped - Almost the same as the standard rounds, with a Triethylborane filled base. Tier 2, Medium Anti-Personnel

Firing Mechanism: Semi-automatic railgun firing systems. Has a built in refire limiter to prevent the user from accidentally overheating the gun.

Weapon Mechanisms

Fire mode selectors & Safeties: Located above and behind the trigger, ambidextrous. Two options - S(Safe), and F(Fire).

Weapon sights: Has steel ring sights. Primarily meant for use with an attached scope of some sort, mounted via ambidextrous rails.

Maintenance Information

Field Maintenance Procedure: Easily broken down into three parts, the barrel, the stock, and the firing/loading mechanism. Has pressure based releases, and is designed to be carried, or broken down and stored, never stored whole. If necessary, the firing mechanism can be broken down for cleaning in the field, though this requires knowledge of how it is put together.

Replaceable Parts and components: Any of the parts can be replaced with similar, match-grade parts at any time. Function is improved if all of the components are manufactured together and matched as one rather then put together piecemeal.

Additional Information

Because of the highly unstable nature of the material used in the tracer rounds, they must be stored in a secured case, with a regulated temperature. To this end, the magazines all come with a sealed cover for the tops.

The carry case designed to fit the rifle is designed with this feature in mind, having built in climate control and full vacuum seals.

To better prevent wear and heat damage to the gun, the frame itself is made of durandium, while the rails are made of a newer material, Boreanium.
