What is the most complex system when it comes to firearm mechanics. I'm interested to run some mercenary-esque game for my group.

GURPS. It's pretty much gun porn when it comes to firearms and damage detail.

Another good system if you can get a hold of it is Millenium's End by Chameleon Ecclectic. It's a little chart heavy (you determine where you hit by using a body map with a transparent overlay) but if you want a crunchy game, I can't recommend it enough.

Phoenix Command +1. I've run it. It is ridiculously in depth and detailed. Don't use it both because it is ridiculously in depth and detailed but also because it is dated. No modern guns.

I will throw out The Company by d101 games. Maybe not as detailed as you are looking for but it does have the big gun lists. Most importantly, it is a modern mercenary game and covers all the that entails.

Never hammer the pin with a rock if it won't hold the weapon to the mount.

But yeah, joes using fucking 25mm and .50 cal rounds as hammers is very much fucking common for some reason. Though, my friend tends to like to fuck with newer mechanics by throwing them rockets used in an Apache's weapons mount and telling them it has a timed fuse once the fins pop.

That's it. I'm sick of all this "Masterwork Mosin Naggat" bullshit that's going on in the d20 system right now. Katanas deserve much better than that. Much, much better than that.

I should know what I'm talking about. I myself commissioned a genuine Mosin Naggat in Russia for a bottle of vodka and a shoelace (that's about $0.30) and have been practicing with it for almost 2 years now. I can even shoot through slabs of solid steel with my Mosin Naggat.

Polish children spend 10 minutes working on a single Mosin Naggat and fold it up to a million times to produce the finest barrels known to mankind.

Mosin Naggats are thrice as powerful as European guns and thrice as hard for that matter too. Anything an AR-15 can shoot through, a Mosin Naggat can shoot through better. I'm pretty sure a Mosin Naggat's bayonet could easily bisect a knight wearing full plate with a simple vertical slash.

Ever wonder why Europe never bothered conquering Russia? That's right, they were too scared to fight the disciplined Soldiers of the glorious Soviet Uniion and their Mosin Naggats of destruction. Even in World War II, American soldiers targeted the men with the Mosin Naggats first because their killing power was feared and respected.

So what am I saying? Mosin Naggats are simply the best gun that the world has ever seen, and thus, require better stats in the d20 system. Here is the stat block I propose for Katanas:

(One-Handed Exotic Weapon)
1d12 Damage
19-20 x4 Crit
+2 to hit and damage
Counts as Masterwork

(Two-Handed Exotic Weapon)
2d10 Damage
17-20 x4 Crit
+5 to hit and damage
Counts as Masterwork

Now that seems a lot more representative of the shooting power of Mosin Naggats in real life, don't you think?

tl;dr = Mosin Naggats need to do more damage in d20, see my new stat block.

It's one of the cheapest long rifles in existence, since most of eastern europe was turning them out by the warehouse load for... shit, forty years? More?

Seriously, if you pay more than $120 for one and it's not, I dunno, Simo Hayha's rifle you're getting ripped off.

It's extremely rugged, and requires very little maintenance. You might need a 2x4 to work the bolt, but that bolt will outlast you, your children, and quite possibly their children as well.

It fires the 7.62x54r cartridge, which was also tuned out by the warehouse load, and so also comes very, very cheap.. This round is fairly powerful; most things that take a hit from it don't get back up.

The only exception to this is whales, and that's just because nobody's tried it yet.

AK is semi automatic, so much higher rate of fire.
The AKs 7.62x39 is distinctly less potent than the nagants 7.62x51, though its still good against man sized targets.

Its one of the most reliable actions out there, but its not particularly accurate. The ergonomics are fairly substandard. Charging handle on the right side of the receiver, stock pistol grip is for people with girly hands. Saftey could be made better.

There are updated version of the AK that are far more ergonmic, more accurate, etc.

And of course the AK will hold a subsantial amount more rounds.

Depends on what kind of vest you're talking about. If you're talking about a light concealable vest, both rounds will penetrate. If you're talking about those big obvious military vests, both rounds will still penetrate. If you're talking about the plate inserts that go over the chest and back of modern military vests, neither of them will penetrate.

In other words, even though the Mosin Nagant undoubtedly has the more powerful round, most modern vests are designed to stop both types of round from penetrating - or not if they are a lighter vest meant to only stop pistol rounds.

Well, this is something you would be better off asking /k/.

Furthermore, this is all shit I've heard over the years and by no means accurate. However.

There are different levels of bullet proof vests. For example, the stuff that cops wear is generally I or II, soft body armor, and is only good (again generally) for lower to intermediate pistol rounds. Most rifle cartridges will fuck its shit up en mass.

Military grade stuff, plate in plate carriers, can and will stand up to 7.62x39mm... there's even one that will stand up to.30-06, which is comparable to 7.62x54r, but it's hella expensive. John Doe the grunt will usually get the 7.62x39mm pate, which probably won't stop 7.62x54r.

The ceramics military grade plate is made of also have a possibility of cracking after a round or two, although they're looking into how to prevent this.

So the answer is, it depends on what kind of armor he's wearing.

But you're just moving goal posts. The original point stated was "a .50 BMG wouldn't stop someone if you hit them in the gut". And it fucking would. People stop when you shoot them. Even a .22LR can stop someone if you shoot them close enough. And then you started going on about how a lot of bullets is more likely to hit a vital point than less bullets, which is true for any two calibers. 100 rounds of 50 .BMG is more likely to hit a vital target than 50 rounds of .38 special, but less likely to hit a vital target than 500. No shit, that's how math works.

But there is still a large difference between different calibers of weapons, and no amount of human factor will change that. A shot from a .50 BMG will fuck your shit up more than a 5.56 in the same area. When comparing hardware, you can't say "well one guy's a better shot, so this is better than that". That's what Deadliest Warrior does.

I'm not >>25018675 but you've pretty much nailed yourself as pretty ignorant of how firearms and bullets work. It's not the diameter of the bullet that matters all that much, it's how much gunpowder is behind the bullet which dictates how fast it goes when it is shot. A faster, heavier bullet does more damage.

Look at the pic. That is .50bmg (on the far left) compared to 5.56 NATO (second from the right). The .50BMG has A LOT of powder behind it, ergo a single .50BMG will cause lots of tissue damage and go right through a human target if it hits because it's going VERY FUCKING FAST and the bullet is MUCH HEAVIER than the 5.56

How it works

Guy that made phoenix command released sword path glory book 1, it came with a red cover it is a fantasy setting
He release again on a white cover and then release 2 aditional books, the white cover one has less tables those games are medieval fantasy ones.

Then he decied to make less complex games to build a audicence for sword path glory
He makes Rhand Morningstar Missions, that is a future setting and less complex than sword path glory
Then he makes Spectrum small arms that is a nowadays setting and with some future stuff (weapons listed there) that is less complex than sword path glory
then he releases phoenix command that is less complex (but newer version of phoenix command are more realistic and complex than old oder, unlike sword path glory case) the setting is nowadays (but there are books with western weapons and,ww2...)
then he releases living steel, that is futuristic, it is less realistic than living steel, but he made the book in a way that you can fully use it with phoenix comand without losing nothing.

You want the ultimate /k/ RPG, that isn't Phoenix Command?

What's that one with the anthropomorphic animals that was made by ex-mil?

Albedo, that's it. I've not played it myself, but the word around /tg/ is that it is in those respects correct [but, to the amateur, overly so thus complicated].

Of course this is hearsay, but...

It bugs me to no end, enough to nearly ruin the whole picture for me
What conceivable reason could they have for stamping a Star of David on the side of the helmet
