Forged from the chaos of mid 20th century street-fighting, the energy pellet
modified Uzi 9mm machine
gun is still the basis of EuroCorp operations tech. It's an inexpensive and
lightweight backup for agents
dealing with cases of dropout psychosis.
Throughout the New Calendar syndicate deployment of inertia-damped chain gunners
has become more
commonplace. This 20mm plasma powered, torque stabilised version has foam alloy
barrels to reduce
mass and production costs.
This is proof of the Church's revolutionary scientific thinking. Simply put,
it's a kind of lightning whip.
We've never made such devices practical; the energy input required was always
prohibitive. This device
uses a sophisticated system of subatomic levers to ensure the absolute minimum
possible drain on a
personal power pack, yet it can still be overcharged. Impressive technology
This laser makes use of the base TriSodium 89 gas (developed circa -20 NC). The
weapon can be
overcharged by delaying trigger release. In critical close quarters situations,
a single overcharged burst of
laser fire may be hot enough to disintegrate its target.
Electron annihilation techniques have led to the development of this powerful
weapon. It uses a
monopolar focus to project a beam-structured field which converts atmospheric
molecules into plasma.
Solid matter is vapourised on contact with the plasma, releasing even more
energy. The field can wreak
utter devastation over a considerable distance. Pull back the monopolar focus by
delaying trigger release
for more effective results against dense or tempered materials.
Designed to face the challenge of New Calendar cyber-proliferation, this rocket
launcher fires a homing
grenade which releases a spray of cluster-bomblets on impact. Rocket guidance

Stressed Techium in this thermonuclear device's casing dampens blast products,
keeping the chain

Research into the narcotic properties of the Creation planet fungus have yielded
the active ingredient of
this dangerous hallucinogenic. The hand-held canister contains a mixture of
fungal spores and an
oxidising agent which is released in a cloud, causing psychotic behaviour in
anyone within it. This
weapon provides a useful diversionary tactic when the number of hostiles is too
great for other forms of
neutralization, though results are unpredictable.
This hand grenade contains an asphyxiating nerve agent. The cloud emitted on

With an impressive area of effect and enough explosive power to inflict terminal
damage on vehicles and
do serious damage to buildings, this is a basic but effective weapon. Place at

LONG RANGE RIFLE
The new LR Rifle uses monopolar sled technology to accelerate high calibre
ammunition to Mach 5.2. The sled's capacitors completely discharge in a single
shot and must be fully
recharged before firing again but accuracy and operational range are unequalled
by other delivery
systems. In keeping with the design spec, the rate-of-fire sacrifice buys
on-the-fly re-calibration, making
this the optimal sniper's weapon.
Every satellite in UTOPIA's network of geo-synchronous orbital platforms is
equipped with a stockpile of
tungsten-uranium alloy rods on a steerable mounting. When these rods are
launched, the process of
atmospheric re-entry heats them to the point at which they liquefy, producing a
plasma rain with true
battlefield potential. We can now successfully over-ride the system lockouts
triggered by Harbinger. By
transmitting re-initialisation protocols, the system can be placed at your
agents' disposal. This can be done
using a hand-held activator but caution should be exercised; the cost of firing

Twin graviton prisms in a Noxon-filled chamber act as a catalyst for a chain

This portable field generator actually alters the rate at which time passes
within the field. Held in near-
suspended animation, the reaction speed of anyone or anything in the field is
negligible, thus making the
target much more vulnerable to other forms of attack. The energy required to
activate the field is
considerable and the timing of its operation should be chosen with care.
In one of the Nine's most esoteric breakthroughs, they have learned how to
unlock the electrochemical
forces still locked away in the bodies of terminated organisms. The
understanding of these mechanisms
we now have gives us complete power over them. The Chromotap is based on this
technology. It extracts
energy from organic matter at the cellular level and transfers it to the
device's controller. The Chromotap
is especially useful for recharging agents after a firefight, as it can still

Professor Drennan has come up with the goods again. The Displacertron uses a
core of ultra-dense matter
surrounded by a stroboscopic stasis shell to provide limited access to higher
dimensional time. This causes
the target to vanish entirely and reappear at a point in the near future. Never
has the saboteur been given a
more powerful tool.
This electronic guardian can make a big difference to your agents' defensive
actions and attacks.
Positioned in an appropriate area and armed with a pulse laser, it takes on
sentry duty and will open fire
on any unsuspecting hostile target that comes in range until it exhausts its
power pack or is destroyed.
This multifunction pack can be used to quickly repair the kinds of wounds and

have a profound impact
on combat zone performance.
With the tungsten tendons and steel sinews of cybernetic arms, your agents will
experience an immediate
improvement in accuracy when shooting, and a subsequent saving in energy. The
operational lifespan of
an agent equipped with these arms is also lengthened by the characteristic
health boost which
accompanies cybernetic enhancement.
The foam-metal manufacturing process is now being successfully applied to
precision cybernetics. With
less inertia to overcome, these lightweight arms not only deliver a demonstrable
improvement to accuracy
but to range of throw as well.
The ultimate in forelimb technology is at your disposal. As our agents are
facing increasingly well-
equipped punks and cultists, the tangible improvements to combat proficiency
these limbs provide will
help to sustain our mission objective success rate.
For significantly increased survivability in hostile environments, encase an
agent's vital organs in triple-
plate titanium alloy. An enhanced body modification provides the single biggest
punishment you can give a cyborg. Note that this modification must be fitted in
order for the cyborg to
support any other mods.
This enhancement uses the honeycombed superstructure of foam-metal, forged in
the microgravity of low
orbit, to make it lighter than the body prosthetic currently in use and a higher
tensile strength. Improved
energy reserve is just one of the advantages of a level 2 body upgrade.
Operationally, this translates into
having more power and there being less risk of critical damage. With a level 2
body, the way is clear for
you to upgrade to level 3 modifications in all other categories.
Memory plastic tendons replace the steel micro-fibres of earlier mods, making
the cyborg now
significantly tougher than any with lower tech upgrades. Most notably, this
enhancement protects an
agent from all known nerve gas weapons.
It's the ability to make decisions independently of Executive control that
differentiates a decisive agent
from a dead agent. This unit contains diamond processors in a 3D matrix
integrated with the cyborg's
conventional cognitive biomass. It increases basic perceptions and contains

to improve the cyborg's ability to withstand otherwise critical damage.
Holographic core memory decreases reaction lag and boosts persuadertron range

The apogee of portable artificial intelligence technology. At level 3 a modified
brain not only delivers
increased health but also guarantees improved targeting accuracy; hit rate and

The cyborg can be exposed to environments which would destroy the biological
brain almost instantly;
this unit can completely backup the biological data and enable the agent to
continue to function.
This is complex cellular cyberskin, weaved to provide a bullet-resistant
epidermis that radically reduces
damage from projectile weapons. Development of a pachyderm/steel mesh hybrid and
enhancement has produced a substance that is extraordinarily tough but just as
flexible as normal, vat-
grown cyborg flesh.
This cyberskin takes advantage of the latest form of non-toxic asbestos designed
for use in spacecraft re-
entry. When carrying out operations during firestorm conditions, an agent
wearing this skin would suffer
far less from incendiary damage than an unprotected counterpart.
This is a cyberskin variant based on hydrocarbon polymer augmented by
fibre-optic micro-filaments. It
should absorb much of the destructive power of energy-based weapon systems. The
energy is dispersed
from the point of impact around the modified agent's body, and recycled to
sustain the skin's protective
This is cutting edge cyberskin technology. The skin uses asynchronous temporal

Our scribes have developed an effective weapon based on the conventional laser.
TriSodium 89 is injected
in the pulse laser's firing chamber where it is lased electrically. The pressure
of the gas in the firing
chamber can be raised by holding down the trigger, overcharging the weapon and
making it more
effective in the process.
This uses the combined energy of accelerated electrons to fire a stream of
unstable energy along a
magnetic carrier wave. A significant advance for the Church, and one that proves
the value of the
teachings held by the Nine.
An implosion grenade is fired towards the target, and uses its own guidance to
ensure detonation on
impact. Launchers use monopolar accelerator sleds to ensure an impressive range,
and those who are
targeted can seldom evade the gyro-homing system. This superb weapon is also
useful for creating area
fire. The auto-reload time does leave our holy Acolytes temporarily vulnerable.
The light of faith will be seen for miles when a nuclear grenade is detonated in
the Church's name. Use
with care, Apostle - the devastation this weapon creates is considerable. Be
sure to retreat from the area in
which it falls. Also, note its effectiveness against structures and groups. To
use this device against a single
enemy would be tantamount to blasphemy.
Our congregation grows with every day. Some souls, though, resist the path of

LONG RANGE RIFLE
Our divine work will sometimes call for the elimination of individuals rather
than the liquidation of larger
groups. The Long Range Rifle fires uranium-depleted kinetic rounds with great
accuracy long distances.
Few body armour components can withstand the pressure-shock of these advanced
shells. Usually one shot
will drop a target, and you can make good your escape unseen.
We can acquire launch codes for many of the geo-stationary satellites which hang
above our planet but the
computing costs involved in cracking the Syndicate's encrypted security
lock-outs are high. When you
activate a strike, within a few seconds, the nearest satellite will target your
designated position and fire
down bolts of tungsten-uranium alloy which superheat in the atmosphere and cause

Only true deities could bring such a device as this into being. As you activate
