Background

A revolutionary weapons system lost to Cold War politics, the G11 was produced by a German conglomerate of three companies: Heckler & Koch, who were in charge of the weapons system proper; Dynamit Nobel, who were in charge of the new ammunition to be used and its design; and Hensoldt Wetzlar, who were in charge of the optics and targeting acquisition systems. The joint effort produced the G11, a space-age design completely foreign to conventional rifle designs of that era. It was a great technical success, but as a result of Germany undergoing dramatic political changes at the end of the Cold War, and the rest of NATO not willing to adopt the rifle so that it could be standardized, only 1000 were ever originally produced. Presumably, someone has the equipment and designs necessary to continue manufacturing this extremely advanced weapon in the post-war world.

The G11 was a significant development because it uses caseless ammunition. To a layman, that may seem insignificant, but it is extremely important in a firearm's operation for a few reasons. First, in automatic weaponry, the entire step of ejecting the casing of the previous round is eliminated. This allows previously-impossible rates of fire to be easily within reach. In fact, the G11 had such a fast rate of fire that one of its selling points was a soldier could fire a three-round burst from the weapon, and only feel the recoil after all three rounds had left the barrel, giving three rounds the accuracy and precision of a single shot.

Even more strangely, the weapon uses a rotating load system -- the magazine is oriented horizontally, much like the P90, so that bullets must be rotated individually so that they can feed properly. The P90 accomplishes this with a simple spiral feed ramp embedded in the magazine, but unlike the P90, the G11's magazine has the rounds pointing straight downwards rather than 90 degrees left of the bore axis. It uses an actual 90-degree rotating chamber for the round, with the round feeding down via gravity. In a conventional assault rifle, this would be needlessly complicated and would reduce rate of fire, but the G11 pulls it off in style thanks to caseless ammunition.
