The M27 IAR is a fully-automatic, magazine-fed light machine gun. The ZX Clan started using it as soon as production started in 2011, during the late testing stages due to a special order from the clan. It is the standard light support weapon for the army and marine corps.

Product InformationEdit

The M27 Infantry Automatic Rifle is a light machine gun designed by Heckler & Kotch that is still technically in its testing stages, although a batch was made specially for the ZX Clan. The only variant is the M27 IAR test variant from 2010, that is expected to be ready for widespread use by 2013. The current test model is the version used by the ZX Clan.

Technical InformationEdit

The M27 IAR is eighty-four centimetres (thirty-three inches) long with its stock fully retracted and ninety-four centimetres (approximately thirty-seven inches) long with its stock fully extended and weighs about three and a half kilograms (eight pounds).
