7.92x36mm Round

The 7.92x36mm round (also known as 7.92 Commie) is a rimless bottlenecked intermediate rifle cartridge with origins in the Communist Bloc. It has since gone on to become one of the cheapest, most widely-available service rifle cartridges in the world due to the epic scale of its mass-production.

This is a custom ammunition type created especially for the NIF-Bashed Weapons Mega-Pack.

Types

There are four varieties of 7.92x36mm ammunition available:

  • 7.92x36mm Round – The standard military-grade full metal jacket loading with a mild steel core.
  • 7.92x36mm, Armor-Piercing – Features a sharp-pointed high-carbon steel penetrator designed to punch through armored targets, and a soft lead plug in the nose to aid jacket discarding. (-15 DT, 0.95x Damage).
  • 7.92x36mm, Hollow Point – A commercially-manufactured loading designed to expand on impact, causing more damage without penetrating further than necessary. (3x DT, 1.75x Damage)
  • 7.92x36mm, Surplus – A poor-quality loading made by the lowest bidder, featuring a copper-plated steel jacket over a solid lead core. The corrosive primer can cause excessive damage to the weapon if not cleaned promptly after use. (3x condition decay, 1.2x Spread, 1.15x Damage)

Apocrypha

The 7.92x36mm cartridge first entered development in the mid-1940s, and was originally intended to measure 7.62x39mm. But after the nephew of a high-ranking official accidentally mixed up the stencils in the ammunition factory, it was decided that tooling up to produce the “improved” cartridge was politically safer than correcting his mistake.

Crafting

This ammo type can be crafted at any reloading bench. Surplus ammo cannot be crafted but can be broken down for raw materials.
