Small Arms


The development of Acrean firearms has proven to be both good and bad; the surplus following the Great War meant that vast numbers of small arms went unaccounted for, and have seen widespread use across the region. But this is not without good reason. Acrean military contractors continue a proud history of rugged, reliable weaponry fielded by the Acrean military, and others.

Acrean Small Arms Abbreviations
*Because Mikhail Kalashnikov does not exist, per say, in Tyran and the open nature of the region and the widespread usage of AK-series rifles throughout nationstates, Acrean versions are denoted simply as being 'model of Kalashnikov' rather than AK rifles directly, and contain some modifications.

A - Avtomat, Automatic Rifle
AVK - Avtomata Vintovka Kalashnikova, Kalashnikov Automatic Rifle
SPM - Standartnyy Pulemet, Standard Machine Gun

Full Name Avtomat obr. 2012 Kalashnikova
Type Assault Rifle
Length 945mm
Weight 3,3 kg
Cartridge 5,45x39mm
Action Long Stroke Piston Rotating Bolt
Rate of Fire 700 rounds per minute (Cyclic)

Modern 21st century development of the Kalashnikov rifle in use as the newly adopted standard service rifle of the Acrean military. Replaces the lower receiver with a new, more ergonomic design and fire selector, and repurposes the old fire selector as a dust cover.


Full Name Avtomat obr. 1990 Kalashnikova
Type Assault Rifle
Length 943mm
Weight 3,4 kg
Cartridge 5,45x39mm
Action Long Stroke Piston Rotating Bolt
Rate of Fire 650 rounds per minute (Cyclic)

The standard service rifle of the Acrean military produced by the Nevelsk Arsenal, modeled after the AK-74M. Introduces a internal slotted plate between the fire control group and the rest of the receiver to improve reliability, blocking potential debris from getting into the fire control group.

Main Battle Tanks


Armoured warfare has always been a cornerstone of Acrean military strategy. From the first Acrean tanks produced in 1915 to the steel beasts that liberated Shalum during the 1940s, Acrean armour has always been a formidable opponent. Acrean tank regiments proved their adaptability during the island-hopping expeditionary conflict that was the Montserrat War in the 1980s. The most modern Acrean designs continue this proud legacy, waiting again until the day they face new challenges.

The T-92 is a vast improvement over the T-90A, sporting superior technology, powerplant, armament, armour, as well as a completely redesigned autoloader. The 'Matryoshka' autoloader, as it is called, was developed to address the deficiencies of those used on previous models.

Matryoshka was developed as a vertical system rather than a horizontal, and mounts the ammunition vertically in a carousel as full shells, rather than two-piece propellant and projectile. The carousel, and the ammunition, are sealed off from the crew by armoured plates that are resistant to pressure, and access through is gained either by a sealed hatch on the interior (used for reloading the magazine) or through a port for lifting the ammunition from the magazine, which is sealed off when not in use. The bottom of the tank is mounted with a rupture disk located where the ammunition is, which allows an ammunition detonation to be directed outside and underneath the tank. As a result, the lower portion of the the chassis has been more heavily armoured to prevent further damage from a potential ammunition detonation.

When a round is loaded, the carousel rotates the appropriate shell (selected by the gunner) to the loading position. The mechanism tilts the round towards the direction of the breech as the hoist lifts the round out of the carousel, and the main gun is lifted three degrees upwards. As the round is lifted, it is continuously tilted further until it lines up with the breech at the top, at which point the mechanical rammer loads the round into the breech and the gun returns to the vertical position indicated by the gunner's sight which is made vertically independent from the gun during the loading process.

The cost of implementing the Matryoshka loader was an increase in size, notably in height of the chassis to accomodate the new design.

Fighter Aircraft


The Soviet Acrean Air Force (VVS) is the largest air force in Tyran by number of aircraft. Acrean military aviation is well regarded for the rugged, solid designs of their aircraft, producing capable and very effective airframes without over-sophistication. Soviet Acrean fighters in particular are known for their relative affordability, supermaneuverability, and reliable advanced avionics.
