Will the weapons be bullpup designed?
To say all the weapons will be bulpup would be completely pointless. Since this is a Sci-fi type game, ill go ahead and explain here:
in real life, the Bulpup design is both top of the line design-wise, and yet a double edged sword ergonomically. While giving the operator a much better speed and performance, in such a compact space, you also take away some of the things that make it comfortable to handle. a real good point would be training to use conventional firearms such as a lee-enfeild, and then picking up a famas to use on the spot. the same thing happens within a game, and can actually directly influence the players effectiveness.
due to conflicts like these, ive set up 3 distint nations, all at war with each other at one point or another, which all have a similar ideology, yet very different from each other. this makes planning alot easier, and also reduces discomfort --- theoretically.
The first nation i will speak of is Eltroslovalkia. Eltroslovalkia is an amarian style european country, which beleives in the tactical advantage. thier weapons allow for mobility and speed while delivering a heavy punch where it is needed. weapons smilar to the SCAR-L, the M24 and M134 are most likely seen in the foot soldier class. getting heavier would be the LAV-7, and the Main punch is the Leopard 3a1. airwise, you could look forward to a comanche gunship style of helicoter, along with the A10 and F35A.
The second Faction is south Armilla. I would put them along the type of Chinese/Russian doctrine, where thier units are not to the standards of the Eltroslovalkians Units, but are able to produce more of them. Here you will see alot of Bulpup type fire arms similar to the Type 88, the Famas, and RPG-7. Armorwise you may get the new BTR, T-100's, and of corse, the lovely russian jets that can actually scare you.
the third faction is North Armilla, and is kind of a hybrid, kind of not. they are a more defencive, protective doctrine that involves carrying more armour than shells. Weapons will be a long barreled, heavily armed bulpup Rifle seen below. the main APC is the HT194, which you can see in the title picture of this post, and armoured units in this faction are relatively large and very hard to kill. Air units are Stealthed, and fast. but usually carry less than ideal.
to answer your questin, there will be bulpup weapons.
some new pics of the island so far...
