MT-22 Astute SMG and Prototype ASI-91 Asinine PDW by RedW0lf777sg MT-22 Astute SMG and Prototype ASI-91 Asinine PDW by RedW0lf777sg
The MT-22 Astute submachine gun (SMG) was developed as a personal defense weapon for the troops whose primary activities does not include small arms, such as vehicle and tank crew members, artillery crews etc. To achieve necessary high penetration while keeping recoil impulse low, the Astute fires from a closed bolt for maximum accuracy, and its design makes extensive use of polymers and nano-titanium for reduced weight and cost. The MT-22 is fully ambidextrous, it can be operated by right or left-handed shooters with equal ease, and without making any modifications to the weapon. the charging handle, magazine release, and the firing selector are symmetrically distributed on both sides of the weapon.

When fired, the MT-22 ejects spent cartridge casings downward through a chute located behind the grip, so spent cases are kept out of the shooter's line of sight. It can be fitted with a sling for greater ease of carry, and since the weapon has a fixed stock (as opposed to having a collapsing or folding stock), it can be quickly deployed when needed. A hollow compartment inside the rear of the weapon's frame which is accessed by removing the buttplate allows for convenient storage of a cleaning kit. The MT-22's grip safety uses a unique internal mechanism inside the pistol grip, which makes pressing it, light, smooth, and crisp.

Unlike its prototype the ASI-91 Asinine, the MT-22 is fitted with additional build-in front grip, improve flash hider and slightly extended front barrel. And instead of using a 50-round box magazine it uses a 20-round box magazine making it's overall length much shorter then that of the ASI-91 which was uncomfortable and difficult to handle because of its impractical long fixed stock which at the time was using a 50-round box magazine.

This problem became quite apparent during its field test firing phase, when many of the soldiers who were testing the weapon hated it and complain about how uncomfortable it was to used and fire along with other problems with it. Eventually leading to its complete redesign, the MT-22 Astute allow it to be easily carried and maneuvered in tight spaces, such as the inside of an armored vehicle. To achieve this, the weapon's design utilizes the bullpup configuration, in which the action and magazine are located behind the trigger and alongside the shooter's face so that there is no wasted space in the stock. The MT-22 requires minimal maintenance, and it can be disassembled quickly and easily. It is a modular firearm, consisting of four main component groups: the barrel, the moving parts group, the frame and trigger group, and the hammer group.

i like how you keep it simple that it looks like it is easy to operate
I also notice that you kinda incorporated some design aspects from other guns
and is a grip safety is revolutionary if I say but i prefer to put a safety selector so that when an idiot tries to shoot, they wouldnt notice

Reminds me of the standard Britannian assault rifle in Code Geass, especially the mag.

Ah, yes. Well here's thing my friend, within the world of Code Geass, the small firearms or weapons used by various characters throughout the series. Unlike real-world firearms, those found in the world of Code Geass do not use gunpowder as an ammunition propellant, eliminating the need for brass casings; instead they operate by using a strong electromagnetic pulse action to fire bullets. So in other words they're basically pulse firearms, which quite similar to weapons used in sci-fi movies like "Aliens" take the M41A Pulse Rifle: avp.wikia.com/wiki/M41A_Pulse_…

As for the mag, unlike my guns you see here, where they're loaded like you would with a P90, the Britannian assault rifle requires you to load it on the side of the weapon and the mag ramp facing forward and facing upwardswhich is show in episode 23 "At Least with Sorrow" youtu.be/qAgaTt0PKW4

The M41A did actually use propellants, it was 10mm non-telescoping caseless, the "pulse" comes from the electronic ignition system.
And now you know, and knowing is half the battle.

The PDW prototype may have more rounds, but it was uncomfortable and difficult to handle because of its impractical long fixed stock which at the time was using a 50-round box magazine.

In a way, I kinda like the forward setup of the PDW more, it reminds me of the Glock-in-a-block and provides users less opportunity to express their EO-nazism :P
But, the reach problem is, well, a problem, and the overall length makes the cartridge impractical when other bullpup carbines and true bullpup rifles (anything over 6.5mm) have been produced at about the same or shorter. However, that is the abandoned one, so I suppose it doesn't much matter :shrug:

The SMG does seem more practical, I can't tell exactly, but it looks like it might be even shorter than the P90, so it certain earns marks for that.
I like the integrated laser and the placement of the pressure switch. Personally, I would have chambered it in 9mm 7N31, 10mm auto or .500 S&W as you could prolly fit 15-20 10mm rounds in that length mag and 9mm 7N31 outperforms 5.7... And .500 S&W could provide 500grains of pains :P
The suppressor looks pretty damn cool and effective, but I wouldn't let it near 5.7x28. For protection of non-combatants, it's a good design, especially since they have to either lug around an M4 or only an M9 right now.

Ah, yes. Now that you brought it up the MT-22 does have interchangeable parts to allow it to used 9mm 7N31 or 10mm auto rounds. But forget about the .500 S&W through. I can't recall any SMGs that can used a round that powerful.

Ah, very good then ^_^
And people must innovate! For the greater good, the world needs SMGs that fire heavier rounds than 12ga deerslugs :P

RedW0lf777sg Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
Then the SMG going had to be design with the vector recoil system because that you going to need something that can reduced the heavy recoil that the .500 S&W gives off. Hell there's only several SMGs that can handle the .45 ACP as it is. That's a powerful round in itself, sure it's not as powerful then the .500 S&W, but it's still powerful none the less.

SomeNavySEALs Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I'unno, .45 is pretty easy to control, the Thompson could be emptied on target, and the recoil would be comparable to a 12ga and from the semi-auto 12's I've fired, that's not a problem at all. Slap a good muzzle break and a limbsaver pad and you'll be good. :dummy:

Yeah, but try handing a .500 S&W SMG set to full auto.
