With the fall of the Empire as a whole many supply lines to outlying sectors
were cut off. This was the case in the Imperial-held territory in the Palvar
sector. Moff Jerr Uhlmann, Imperial commander in the Palvar sector, tried to
compensate for the lack of new supplies by buying supplies and weapons from
local corporations who jacked up the prices seeing an increased demand in
their products. In order to save money (in both manufacturing and shipping),
Moff Uhlmann ordered his meager research and development teams to work on a
cheaper alternative to the Kashan weaponry that he had been purchasing. The
resulting designs that the R&D engineers came up with was transferred to the
Delfii factories to go into immediate construction.
The BP-18 blaster pistol is nothing more than a blatant rip off of the famed
BlasTech DL-18 (although many in the R&D department wanted to copy other
designs such as the BlasTech DH-17 Imperial blaster or even some of the
various older Imperial Munitions designs that were once common throughout
the Empire). There isn't much difference between the BP-18 and the DL-18 and
many people are unable to tell the difference.
The BP-18 is sold on the open market on a restricted basis. Only those with
the proper permits and/or licenses (bounty hunter, law enforcement, etc).
The serial numbers on all BP-18s are recorded so that anyone found possessing
can have the serial number checked in the records to see if they are the
actual owner. Illegal possession of a BP-18 can result in a 2,000 credit
fine and/or up to five years imprisonment.
