Overview

This magazine contains 7 shells of flechette shot. Each 12mm shell contains 8 tiny flechettes -- solid steel needles with fins to stabilise their flight. This ammunition is military-only, banned for all civilian use due to the flechettes' excellent performance against armour. The flechettes are prone to tumble after penetration, resulting in nasty wounds that will either kill the target or send it running for cover.

This short shell -- only 90mm long -- was designed for pistol-configuration shotguns like the CRC-M9 Micro Shotgun. However, the CRC-212 Riot Shotgun can fire it just as easily, with all the performance increases of a full-sized weapon.

The magazine is meant to be loaded into a CRC-212 Riot Shotgun or CRC-M9 Micro Shotgun.


Recommended Doctrine

All soldiers equipped with shotguns should carry at least one reload whenever they go out in the field. It is not advisable to send our troops into combat without spare magazines.
