KS12 Carbine by VoughtVindicator KS12 Carbine by VoughtVindicator
Anyone remembers this? [link] Well, I decided to draw some more of the plastic-heavy Birkanian small arms, this time the 9x39mm compact assault rifle KS12 which replaced the AKS-74U in the ranks of the Birkanian Army.

It lacks the capacity and firepower of its bigger cousin but it makes up for it by using heavy, silent subsonic ammunition capable of delivering quite a punch while keeping noise levels low when the gun is equipped with a silencer. Its smaller size makes it a weapon of preference when it comes to arming the crews of tanks, helicopters and rear-guard units with a weapon that isn't too cumbersome yet allows them to protect themselves in case they have to fight the enemy directly. Another use for it is for special forces during close quarters combat, since its small size and low weight grant it good mobility. For the latter purpose it can be equipped with a GP95 underbarrel grenade launcher.

Drawn in gunbucket scale.

This is really nice and I do like the polymer frame over the receiver - I'm just not sure about the handguard or the Saiga-type sights. Not sure an AKS-74u platform is long enough to really pull off the raised design of Saiga-type sights compared to conventional AK sights. As for the handguard, it's just a personal preference. It might be improved by adding some kind of 'grip' surface to it, or turning it into an RIS.

Gunbucket? I must investigate this. Anyway I like the way it looks, although I have to ask, why tan? Is it the plastic's color, or is it painted for desert-environments?

It's painted for desert environments on the south of Birkaine and foreign teathers. Units in the north receive olive drab versions of this gun.

That answers that question. Also what font did you use for the words?

Arial 12 and 10, without anti-alias to make them look pixely
