Weapons: 10mm Caseless and Enkidu

10mm Caseless

The 10mmCLP round has become the standard for most THS military and police pistols and SMGs. A high-velocity medium-calibre round, its penetration gives it a reasonable capability against body-armour or cybershells, and its flat-trajectory aids accuracy. The 10mmCLP is a supersonic round, so subsonic ammunition is recommended if using a suppressor. This reduces Damage to 2d-1, Range is x 0.8 (pistols), x 0.6 (SMG/ PDW).
Note: In the real world .40 and 10mm pistols have similar ballistics to .357 magnums. The start of the “large piercing (pi+)” category in GURPS should more realistically begin at .43/11mm. Transhuman Space 10mmCLP weapons can be left as pi+ in the assumption of some “smart” or other high-tech construction that has resulted in an improvement in terminal performance. GMs should feel free to drop this modifier for subsonic or plastic ammunition or any other ammunition type they feel it is unrealistic for.

10mm Pocket Revolver (“Stubbie”)

A compact, polymer-framed, hammerless revolver often used as a backup pistol. Takes standard 10mm pistol ammunition but is subject to some gas leakage that may reveal the firer’s location. This is not usually a disadvantage for a close-range defensive weapon.

10mm Machine Pistol

10mm machine pistols are favoured for operations in confined spaces or by those that need a concealable automatic weapon. The suppressor makes a handy foregrip while keeping overall length short. The folding stock is easily removable. Designed to be able to also use standard 10mm pistol magazines in addition to its own 32 round magazines. A cyclic rate reducer matches the rate of fire to the natural oscillation of the weapon for maximum accuracy.

Enkidu Machine Pistol

Produced by the Islamic Caliphate this 9mm caseless machine pistol is the standard side arm of the Ghazi and Mutawi’yyun. While not as powerful as 10mm weapons it is popular for being a well-balanced and accurate weapon. There is a considerable underground market for this weapon outside the Caliphate. Ammunition may be harder to procure than 10mmCLP or 4mmCL outside of the Caliphate.
