### FACTION SHOWCASE ###

New weapons on OXC Factions! This time, from the human traitor faction, the Inheritors. Those are the descendants of the Government officers, politicians and military personnel  that signed the pacts with the aliens on the First Alien War, thus inheriting the Earth. At least, on the eyes of their supporters, the Ethereals.

Their unique equipment is composed of high-tech prototypes from the late 20th Century and early 21th Century, just before the First Alien War. It has far more quality than those weapons fielded by other factions, but are rather scarce. Also, they like to deploy specially modified one-wielded weapons and ballistic shields on their shock troopers.

Also, you can see the first Inheritor weapons introduced on OXC Factions, from left to right:

CAR-15 carbine
Vz-98 CQB compact carbine
SIG Sauer MP-X submachine gun
FN SCAR CQB compact assault rifle
IWI MTAR-21 Tavor carbine
H&K G11 caseless rifle
H&K XM29 OICW
Titanium shield (sprite drawn by Nord)

Testing of the new (junk) weapons! Those weapons are commonly found over the battlefield, are used by the many scattered civilian (human and alien alike) to defend themselves from pillagers and robbers!

As you can see in the pic with our friend The Reaver of Darkness, the list of new weapons are, from left to right:

"Glock" Pistol, calibrated in 9mm. Actually, it is very likely that this is not a weapon made by Glock Ges.m.b.H, not even close, but the word glock is closely associated in the minds of the inhabitants of the wasteland with a handgun of high quality and reliability. And it is, it is very effective.

Nail Gun, uses concrete nails as ammunition. Equipped with a high capacity drum and firing industrial concrete nails (a very easy to find and made ammo), this close range weapon has a wooden stock attached with some duct tape to increase the stability of the aiming.

Lead Pipe, is used both as a melee weapon and in crafting recipes, to make new weapons and explosives! Doesn't kills, but can stun an enemy if hitted hard enough!

Tire Iron, basically a tire iron. Boring, but easy to find and use.

Knife, with a knuckle attached to it. Never go out home without your trusty knife. ;)

Hatchet, now instead of just cutting down trees, cuts out enemy skulls!

Pipe Wrench, believe it or not, this tool hits very hard. Plus, helps you with your plumbing job. Broken baths? not a problem!

Machete. Kills. A lot. (Approved by Danny Trejo)

Baseball Bat, capable of making a home run with the extremities of the enemy, it can easily knock out an enemy. Fast, light and forceful make this a special weapon.

Sledgehammer, Whether you use it to demolish houses or annihilate enemies, this heavy hammer requires both hands to use it. It is very slow and heavy, making it difficult to hit with it, but if you strike a blow you annihilate the enemy and cause a large number of wounds.

As always with our projects at the IDT, unique handObs and floorObs were made for each weapon!

New post update!

We have added the initial interceptor crafts in the mod. Initially, you will be equipped with the Harrier VTOL jump jet, perfect to be deployed from the underground base. It is not the most resistant aircraft, but it is an indispensable element for the Resistance in the initial stages of the campaign.

Also, after some research and recovery missions, we will be able to rebuild the A-10 Warthog. A powerful attack aircraft, highly armored and with a lot of firepower. It is slow and short-range, but it can withstand extensive punishment before being shot down.

Totally, flying tanks are cool.  8)

NEWS UPDATE!

The Inheritor forces got a new image. The average grunt will be equipped with a high tech Land Warrior Armor System and the special forces of the Inheritor regime, the Alpha Forces uses a lighter and comfortable ProTec armor (they are basically an evil version of the Delta Force). Also, some new sprites to Inheritor weapons and clips!

Very nice.
I did a similar thing (thought not as pretty), but I also surrounded the area with cave walls.
