During the latter half of the Deep Wars, when fighting was starting to slow down and funding was made more available, the U.H.Q.G.'s top engineers and ballistics researchers returned to work on the first Ulfran self-loading rifle. Having settled upon a highly practical toggle-lock mechanism, a snail-drum mechanism was drawn up to provide a proper housing for the rather large 13.2x94mm Ljøkmaalr (named after the wrathful/malicious god of the sea). Amongst the innovations present in the M1918 Tjen-Gev is the rather clever application of having the feed-port for charging the drum with fresh rounds in located on the left side of the rifle, a "part" of the drum itself. This allowed for little-to-no hassle when dealing with the need to reload the weapon in the field, as most Haersmann are right hand dominant anyway. The rifle was taken out of prototype during 1917 and was deemed production capable after extensive field tests in the one of the nastier trench-lines; through-out the rest of 1917, factories were being re-tooled to manufacture, assemble and "make ready" Ulfr-Reich's newest service rifle. Albeit much heavier than the M1 H-Gev due to the mechanical workings, it did prove to be far more efficient due to the increased magazine capacity and the overall jaw dropping damage that a line of Haersmann doing aimed volley could pull-off against Naðrfirar, who, with their scaled and semi-armored hide (not to mention arcane/antediluvian metallurgical designs in regard to personal armor); one of the key perks of it's rapid integration into the arms of welcoming haersmann, was that it aided in the latter half of the war (1918-1920) and ensured that the cross-Ulfheim mop-up operations designed to purge every last Naðrfirar from the surface (beneath the waves and under the mountains/hills as well) of the earth. The M1918 set the bar for future Ulfran rifles, and, in fact, it's descendants saw action all through-out WWII, the Spanish Civil War, and through-out the various conflicts that arose over the years.
Name: U.H.Q.G. - Model 1918 Tjeneste-Gevaer.
Cartridge: 13.2x94mm Ljøkmaalr
Ammunition Capacity: 10
Action: Toggle-Locking semi-automatic
Rate of Fire: FAO
Muzzle Velocity: 2,965 f/s
Sights: U.H.Q.G. M3 Gev-Syn
Operation: The Haersmann must simply place the stripper-clip into the "feed-lip" of the drum (left side). Having fully reloaded the drum, the Haersmann must simply pull back the non-reciprocating charging handle mounted on the left side, after priming/chambering the first the round, the charging handle should spring forward. Take the weapon off "Safe" and the enemy can be torn asunder by voluminous and well-aimed fire.
