At the same time, I pestered Dr. Kromm, David Pulver, various authors in playtest, and several errata coordinators with errata lists and assorted essays and comments on obscure stuff they probably could not care less about. Then, in early summer of , David finally had enough and suggested I should write my own book.
It sounded like a good idea. While writing the book, I found that I had not even half enough space for all the items I wanted to cover. Consequently, a small portion of the stuff that did not make it follows in this article. Modern Squad-level Firepower The following overviews detail the typical combat equipment of a number of military forces in the year , to put some of the armaments described in GURPS Modern Firepower into perspective and hopefully help with the odd campaign, for example to describe a "normal" opposing forces squad for GURPS Special Ops.
Also, the loadouts are for full-scale combat operations -- squads deployed for guard duty or police operations will be armed differently. Since many of the small arms adopted in the s will see service well into the s, these lists can also be used to extrapolate into the future. However, major conflicts -- which accelerate the fielding of new weapon designs -- may change this considerably.
