Imperial Repeating Rifle
The RB-XI is the personal weapon of choice of the Imperial IntelligenceAdjustments agent, Colonel Flac Drivin. The Tech deparment of Intelligenceworked for months just developing the concept behind such a powerful, hand-held weapon. It took eleven versions of the weapon before a safe powersource could be developed, all of the first ten prototypes of the weaponoverloaded and exploded, killing the tech operating it each time.
The final production, the RB-XI, features several unique power converters and internal mini couplings to regulate the power flow, thus preventing an overload. The power pack attaches underneath the barrel, "hugging" it, and not giving the repeater a bulky extension that could get in the way during a critical moment.
Like most personal repeating blasters, the RB-XI is a little more than a meter in length and weighs quite a bit, it is definately a two-handed weapon meant for use with a shoulder strap. The sighting macroscope aids in all medium to long range shots, almost insuring a direct hit on the target. The motion detector display was a concept taken from an elite group of Imperial commandos serving out in the Harvlis Sector.
