Tsunami Arms Ramjet Rifle is sniper rifle. The top-secret Japanese weapons design firm once again lives up to its rep with the Ramjet Rifle, a remarkable new weapon which is well suited to the roles of sniper, counter-sniper and light anti-armor weapons system. What makes this rifle special is the bullet which it fires- not a normal slug, flechette or gyrojet, these 8.Smm projectiles are small ramjet engines! Fired from the rifle at a velocity of 3,200 feet per second, the supersonic bullets have a conical aperture in their nose into which the air is compressed. This jet of hot air ignites the fuel stored in the bullet which blasts out the back, accelerating the round.

This results in a constant increase in the velocity and energy of the shell until it reaches its maximum range, making the Ramjet Rifle a harder hitter the further it is from its target. The gun is a semiautomatic, caseless ammo-firing bullpup made of lightweight polymers, boasting an adjustable grip and stock as well as an adjustable bipod and a free-floating heavy barrel. For superior accuracy at long ranges, the Ramjet Rifle comes equipped with a 4x telescopic laser-reflex smartgun interlock, which paints the target with a laser and then uses microprocessor-controlled liquid lenses to determine the range and the proper elevation to hit the target at that range by moving the aimpoint, causing the shooter to bring it to the correct angle. Note: 5D6+3 at Close range, 6D6+ 1 at Medium range, 7D6 at long range and 7D6+3 at Extreme range. Armor SP is x3, and penetrating damage is doubled since it is effectively a large hollow-point round.[1][2]
