Federated Long Rifle

Federated Long Rifle


The Federated Long Rifle was originally designed by Federated Industries for exclusive use by the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns. However, since its introduction this semi-automatic rifle has been copied by the other Successor States and seen wide-spread use throughout the Inner Sphere.[1] While the basic design was given regular updates the Long Rifle has since outlived its use and been replaced with the Federated-Barrett M42B Rifle System.[2]
