Weapon Background

L85A1, British Armed Forces' designation for the SA80, a selective fire, bullpup configured, gas-operated, rotating bolt assault rifle made by the British. The design of a new bullpup configured service rifle project started even before the fall of the Third Reich, after many decades of development, countless prototype models made, numerous field tests performed and several different chambering calibre munitions types proposed, in addition to three different groups of designing personal team changed, the rifle design was finally finished during the 1980s. L85A1 immediately replaced the British L1A1 (FN Fal variant) and set as the new standard service rifle for the various British Armed Forces including the Royal Marines, Royal Army Infantry and RAF Regiments. L85A1 was also enlisted to service by a couple of Commonwealth member states.

As the NATO member nations agreed on 1976 to the standardization of all NATO military forces munitions to the American 5.56x45mm M193 Cartridge, the SA80 project made the final change to the chambering calibration. L85A1 is capable of firing the 5.56mm munition up to rate of 775 rounds per minute cyclic, at the nozzle velocity of 940m/s, and covering an effective firing range of 600 metres (With SUSAT). The rifle feeds on a 30 round NATO STANAG magazine, which replaced its unreliable original magazines.

Modular weapon outfit doctrine were not very well established within NATO at the time, as a result L85A1 did not have tactical modifications such as Picatinny rails, meaning it was not compatible with combat accessories nor did it have any designed specially for it. Despite having iron sights built in, all combatants are required to use the SUSAT (Sight Unit Small Arms, Trilux) optical sight for sorties. At the end of the barrel features a slotted flash suppressor, which also serves as a mounting point for the army issued bayonet. No under-rail grenade launcher was compatible or designed for L85A1, but rifle grenades can be fired with blank cartridges.

After entering service, L85A1 immediately saw action in many modern conflicts such as Northern Ireland, Bosnia and the First Gulf War. User feedbacks for the A1 model however are frequently associated with vocabularies such as "Appalling" and "Disastrous", with the British media often put blames of the casualties of Royal Army soldiers on the poor performance of the L85A1. UK MoD (Ministry of Defence) states that they found over 50 (Fifty, see trivia) faults with the A1 model of the L85 during the equipment assessments, which urged the modifications/refurbishment of the gun.

In 2000 the at that time British owned H&K reviewed the gun and produced the A2 variant, which fixed (almost) all the major issue with the A1 model and now British Armed Forces has entirely replaced the A1 with the more advanced, more modern, more reliable and better performing A2 model.[1]

Character Info

Design

A T-doll of around 155-160 cm of height, her outfit resembling something of an aristocratic military design, colour theme is the combination red blue white, the same as the UK's national flag the Union Jack. Long pink hair well pass her knees, deep blue eyes behind her red rim glasses, the national flower of UK Red Rose can be found on her hat as an ornament.

Differs from most other countries that would use bolt action/semi automatic rifles as ceremonial drill weapons, the British ceremonial drill rifle is an SA80 variant, hence the T-doll L85's outfit resembling a ceremonial guard.

Personality

Polite and caring T-doll, featuring the stereotypical British behaviour, upon obtaining she asks the Commander whether he/she would like a cuppa tea. Her quotes reflects that she is also somewhat of an upper social hierarchic person, with vocabularies found only within upper class citizens.

In-game

As a common unit, her early game performance is almost on part with AR F2000, with her damage and rate of fire boosting skill, she can take the MVP title regularly during the stages of early game. Like most 2* rarity T-dolls, her late game performance is not exactly ideal.

Her grid buff is quite awkward, as an AR unit with low evasion, it is very ill-advised to place her on the front line of the squadron, her grid buff usually cannot reach the SMGs.

Story Involvement

L85 is part of the British based squadron with together with SMG IDW and MG Bren, as evident in IDW's T-doll upgrade memory fragment slide shows.

Trivia

  • Design flaws/major faults such as:
    • Unreliable semi-automatic firing performance.
    • Poorly made polymer parts, easily damaged and renders gun unusable.
    • Inhumane magazine catch design, magazine can fall off during firing of the weapon.
    • Complexity of the rifle makes it difficult to perform maintenance.
    • Poor quality feeding magazine.
    • Many more.
  • Other variants of SA80 includes the L86 Light Support Weapon, L22 Carbine and the L98 Cadet rifle. Recently developed L85A3 are now being reviewed by the British Armed Forces and gradual replacement of A2 to A3s are being considered.
