Amerind Empire Heavy Artillery
<a title="M98 Howtar"
This is the main Heavy Artillery Piece of the Amerind Empire: a copy of the M98 Howtar (the M2 107mm mortar placed on the 1920’s era M33 carriage for the 75mm howitzer).
The original Howtar was found in a military museum and eventually adopted by the Amerind Empire as a very effective method of deterring attack on their strongpoints. The Howtar is relatively small, is easy to transport and can be towed by a light vehicle or even a horse. An additional advantage is that – true to its mountain howitzer heritage – it can also be disassembled and carried by 7 mules.
“In Sacagawea, the new buildings are made from concrete blocks that are slick, and smooth”
Continuing the use of broken glass as a building material, glasscrete is a mixture of concrete and ground glass (up to 80% glass). If ground to a fine powder, glasscrete can also be used as a cement replacement. Unlike conventional cement, glasscrete has a fairly smooth surface and can be polished for ornamental purposes.
“In Sacagawea, all plastic items are very smooth and shiny, and very, very dark red.”
The first plastics weren’t made from oil. An early one was “Bois Durci” [first used in the 1850’s]. It used scrap from the sawmill and industrial waste from slaughterhouses
Glassphalt: “The streets of Sacagawea gleam and glitter at night. They shine like silver”
The Amerind Emoire has limited access to oil but they do trade for oil products like asphalt, which they obtain from the city-state of Cody, Wyoming (one of the New Presidencies).
Sacagawea produces a limited range of weaponry
Pistols: for the forces are usually revolvers – considered only as concealable backup weapons. The Amerind Empire uses a copy of the snubnose S & W Model 10, in 38 special. Wealthy individuals sometimes possess semi-automatic pistols, but this is more a question of fashion.
The Sacagawea paramilitary forces use a 6-5mm bolt action rifle.
Sacagawea is a city of approximately 50,000 people. It straddles the Snake River (on the sites previously occupied by Lewiston, Idaho and Clarkston, Washington).
