Lore[edit | edit source]

Originally designated and manufactured by the Lastimosa Armory as the R-97CN A3, the R-99 SMG was intended for use with the Frontier Colonial Navy, hence the "CN" classification. The Colonial Navy would often conduct Orbital Boarding Parties on hostile ships in high orbit or entering the atmosphere, so they needed a weapon platform that was compact and had the ability to spit lead downrange in low gravity or in extremely confined areas such as cockpits or ship corridors.[1]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The compact layout, short vertical grip, and the non-functional retractable stock of the R-99 strongly resembles the KRISS Vector in real life. This is further backed by the fact that the weapon uses a small caliber, has an extremely high firing rate, combined with a small magazine capacity.
