NEW MEMBER GUIDE 1.0: PLEASE READ!

Welcome new member to Aftermath: A Future War RP, before you get started on the overview of the story this community revolves around let's go over some basic rules.

RULES:

1: Please put all posts in the proper category, it helps keep things organized, clean and easy to find. And follow the general profile layout/guidelines as much as possible please.

2: Please respect all other members, moderators and owners. This is a no-brainer really as respect is a two way street. This means no bullying harassing, racism and etc. First and second offenses will get you a warning, third offense will get you banned.

3: Limit arguments wherever possible please. I know they'll happen eventually but if you can take steps to minimise the chances of them happening please do. If you must argue take it elsewhere, meaning outside the community. Contact myself or the other mods and owners if you start having recurring problems with another member.

4: Be as active as possible. I'm not saying you need to be on 24/7 because obviously everyone has personal lives outside of the internet. Just try to be as active as possible and let me or the other mods and owners known if you'll be gone for extended periods of time due to personal reasons.

5: Have fun! That's what this community is made for.

Now onto the basic outline of each era's story.

Origins Era: Covers the events after the Ultra Depression, the rise of the Northern European Federation and all other events. It also covers WW3 from its beginning to end.

Revolution Era: Covers all events post WW3 including the transformation of the Northern European Federation into Imperial Germany and the events leading up to the Second American Revolution. It will also cover the Revolution itself from beginning to end.

[Designation:] DSR-20

[Type:] Sniper/Anti-material rifle

[Manufacturer:] DSR-Precision GmbH

[Country of Origin:] Northern European Federation

[Caliber:] 20x120mm

[Rate of Fire:] 60 RPM

[Magazine Capacity:] 6

[Ammunition Type:] Sealed Caseless

[Variants:] N/A

[Upgrades/Attachments:] Bipod, laser sights, light/sound suppressors, Presicion scopes, advanced IRNV optics

[Background:] Built to satisfy a request for a high powered, man portable 20mm sniper rifle the DSR-20 took much of its design inspiration from the Barret M82 and the Accuracy International AS-50. Components of both those weapons were scaled up and used in it's manufacturing by DSR-Presicion GmbH before the company was combined with Heckler and Koch in 2022. The weapon operated on the same firing and recoil control mechanisms as the new M418 and SOAR rifle platforms created by H&K and FN Herstal respectively. The weapon began production in 2020 and first saw action five years later during Operation Shutdown. It's service contiuned until the 2060's where it was fazed out in favor of a newer more powerful model.

[Designation:] FNH SOAR-C

[Type:] Carbine Assault Rifle

[Manufacturer:] FN Herstal

[Country of Origin:] Northern European Federation

[Caliber:] 8.8x60mm

[Rate of Fire:] 600 RPM

[Magazine Capacity:] 40

[Ammunition Type:] Sealed Caseless

[Variants:] FNH SOAR-LSW

[Upgrades/Attachments:] Dual mag holder, foregrips, grenade launchers, laser sights, flashlights, light/sound suppressor, short/mid/long ranger optics

[Background:] Built using the best features from the SCAR-H and SCAR-L rifles proceeding it the FNH SOAR-C was the second assault rifle to be produced for the NEF military and more specifically it's special forces units. Similar to the H&K M418-C the weapon had interchangeable parts allowing it to be converted into an LMG if needed. It also shared the same recoil control system and propellant for its ammo. That is where the similarities ended as unlike the H&K version the SOAR platform fired the more powerful FNH 8.8x60mm round, allowing it even greater stopping power at a slightly reduced fire rate. The weapon commenced production in 2021 and served with NEF-SOCOM until the early 2090's before it was officially retired.

[Designation:] H&K M418-C

[Type:] Carbine Assault Rifle

[Manufacturer:] Heckler and Koch

[Country of Origin:] Northern European Federation

[Caliber:] 6.8x60mm

[Rate of Fire:] 680 RPM

[Magazine Capacity:] 40

[Ammunition Type:] Sealed Caseless

[Variants:] H&K 418-LSW

[Upgrades/Attachments:] Extra mag holder, foregrips, laser sights, flashlights, light/sound suppressor, grenade launchers, short/mid/long range optics

[Background:] Designed as a replacement for the H&K 416 and M-27 series of rifles the H&K 418-C was a modern rifle built on a older but reliable frame with interchangeable parts allowing it to fulfill more than one role. Aesthetically there are few differences between it an it's predecessors, save for a shorter length and remicak of a fixed iron sight on the front of the weapon. Within however the rifle is different. Primarily due to its use of a larger round, the H&K 6.8x60mm caseless. A powerful round fired using a liquid hydrogen/oxygen propellant sealed within a shaped careless round. This allows the bullet to have greater penetrating power despite being smaller in size. In order to reduce recoil the weapon uses a similar system to the AA-12 shotgun, allowing the weapon to be controllable under fully automatic fire. Production of the weapon began in 2020 as part of the refurbishment order for the newly established Northern European Federation military. It first saw action five years later during Operation: Shutdown. The weapon contiuned to see service throughout WW3, the Second American Revolution and beyond into the late 2070's before it was retired from active service.

[Caliber:] 8.8x60mm

[Rate of Fire:] 600 RPM

[Magazine Capacity:] 120

[Ammunition Type:] Sealed Caseless

[Variants:] FNH SOAR-C

[Upgrades/Attachments:] Bipod, foregrips, laser sights, flashlights, light/sound suppressors, short/mid/long range optics

[Background:] The LSW variant of the SOAR platform the SOAR-LSW is identical in operation to the SOAR-C and has the same simple configuration process as the H&K M418-LSW. Simply remove the barrel and bolt of the SOAR's assault rifle version and replace them with the barrel and bolt of the SOAR's LSW version. The weapon also had a very similar service life from 2025 to the early 2090's. It was widely regarded by NEF-SOCOM as a potent light support weapon.

[Magazine Capacity:] 120

[Ammunition Type:] Sealed Caseless

[Variants:] H&K M418-C

[Upgrades/Attachments:] Bipod, foregrips, laser sights, flashlights, light/sound suppressors

[Background:] Built to fufuill the order that certain future NEF military weapons must have interchangeable parts in order to fulfill more than one role the LSW variant of the H&K M418 platform is a relatively simple one. Simply swap out the short barrel and the closed bolt system of the M418-C replace with the long barrel and open bolt of the M418-LSW, load a drum mag and boom! One light machine is ready for duty. Aside from that the weapon shares all of its other traits with the M418-C version, from fire rate to ammunition. The weapon also had the same service life, from 2025 to the late 2070's

She shows compassion towards her mates, sympathy for the suffering and aggression towards her enemies. It should be noted, she got her own personal callsign, "Carbs", for the amount of energy bars she eats.

Bio:
Hinata Mako was born at the beginning of the Ultra Depression in Toyko. When things got to the point where it was unlivable there, her family moved to London, England. Her Father was a businessman in war tech, and her mother a fellow businesswoman. They had met when her father travelled to Europe to form a partnership, when he met Elizabeth Gregor. Whilst in Europe, Mako went to school and graduated into adult hood at near the end of the depression, and witnessed the rise of new world powers. At the age of 18, she visited a recruiter after fighting with her mother, who wanted her to join the family business. Three days later, she traded her black cargo pants and t-shirt for NEF trainee fatigues and was in her way to Germany to learn how to fight.

She showed strong rebellion at first, often singled out by the instructors, but never showed insubordination. One of her instructiors even stated that she "...Seemed to enjoy being put to the test and challenged...". She graduated from Infantry School and declined a promotion opportunity, stating that "...the officer life isn't for me." She served one tour in Germany in the reserves before being approached again, this time with a different opportunity. She signed, and within a few days, she was on her way to Hamburg, and then from there to a disclosed location to train as a paratrooper. Due to her aggressive nature, she was assigned the role of Pointman in her squad, but her temper was quickly regulated by her Commander. He personally keep an eye on her, and taught her how to keep a level head in the field, and see owes much to him. She was promoted to Lance Corporal, and was a fully trained Airborne Infantryman by the time she was 25.

Additional Information: She had a scar across her left eyebrow from an incident with a live grenade. She had a few choice words to say to the Private that botched the throw, but didn't break any bones.

Medically, she's at her prime. No known allergies, but she can't Regen. (Meaning, if she were to loose a limb, she'd need a cybernetic replacement.)

The focused much of their time during the three year long Ultra Depression preserving their economies as much as possible as well as stockpiling resources and manufacturing masses of commercial goods for both domestic and international use. This paid off once the worst of the crisis was over as they had a fair stockpile of resources and goods ready to be sold and regrow their economies. They also had the advantage of being among the first of a few countries to recover first from the crisis, attracting scores of enuntrapenuers in all fields. Many of these people have been put to work in the military science divisions as part of a massive build up. From 2023-2029 there has been a large build up of NEF military forces.
