Weapon Background

One of the more famously known bullpup configured rifle in the world, FAMAS is an acronym of the firearm's function and the place of production, Assault Rifle from the Saint-Étienne Weapon Factory. Designed by the MAS group (Now merged with GIAT Industries and formed the Nexter Systems) in 1971, with the prototype evaluation finished and the FAMAS entered service in the French Army in 1978. FAMAS is often referred to the F1 variant, since it is the model currently enlisted to service by the French army, though improved G1/G2 variants of FAMAS were made but they did not enter service with the French Army, instead the French Navy purchase a sum of the G2 model and issue it to their Naval Marine forces.

FAMAS classifies as a 5.56 calibre, selective fire, assault rifle that uses a lever-delayed blowback action mechanism. Chambered with the 5.56x45mm NATO cartridge, feeds from a proprietary 25-round magazine, FAMAS is able to reach a rate of fire of 900 rounds per minute, fire rate of FAMAS is considerable faster than most other assault rifles due to the lever-delayed blowback mechanism that was derived from a machinegun. Able to cover up to an effective firing range of 300 metre with the 488mm long barrel and default iron sight. G2 variant has a improved rate of fire, range and reliability, also added compatibility with the 30-round STANAG issue magazines.

French Army issue FAMAS have various design features to meet the design specification, include a bipod mounted on top of the front receiver, charging handle is located beneath the carrying handle, carrying handle itself can mount various French/NATO issue optics with appropriate adapters. Fire control unit is located in front of the trigger and covered by the trigger guard, it can enable semi-automatic, 3-round burst on top of fully automatic fire and functions as a safety. FAMAS do not have compatible under barrel grenade launchers designed for it, but rifle grenades are issued to FAMAS users and can be fired from the flash hider with blank munitions, grenade sights can be pulled out from beneath the carrying handle. The same muzzle device could also fix bayonets.

F1 model FAMAS rifle suffers from a few performance issues such as poor quality polymer parts, poorly made/used magazine creating malfunctions of the rifle on occasions, overheating issues with continuous firing and costly/long maintenance routine, some of which the G1/G2 and Felin model managed to fix. The French army is currently replacing their servicing FAMAS F1 with the H&K made HK416F. FAMAS saw action in various modern era conflicts such as the Gulf War and conflicts in Afghanistan with the French Foreign Legion.[1]

Design

A T-Doll of roughly 150-160cm of height, different from most other T-Doll art, FAMAS looks more action like in her official art with her combat pose. Her gun is also quite oversized compared to her body proportion, which is also happened to RF Kar98k. FAMAS wears a long red overcoat over her blue dress and what appears to be pantyhose type stocking into her white boots. The rifle grenades in her bag also appears to be a little bit oversized.

As evidenced by the trigger guard, grenade sight, and the straight 25-round magazine, she uses the original production variant FAMAS F1, currently in service with the French Army. Although, the bayonet is incorrectly positioned under-barreled, where it should be above. In her costume Guns & Boxes, the bayonet mistake is repeated, the magazine is also changed to a STANAG style magazine, however the F1 model FAMAS cannot accept STANAG issue magazines.
