Weapons of the Amerind Empire: 107mm Howtar

Amerind Empire Heavy Artillery

<a title="M98 Howtar" 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.

Sacagawea and Amerind Weaponry: sidearms & rifles

February 8, 2008 Leave a comment

Weaponry:
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.

Rifle

The Sacagawea paramilitary forces use a 6-5mm bolt action rifle.
