Act of Aggression
Work In Progress
Act of Aggression is a real time strategy game produced by Eugen and published by Focus Interactive. The game follows the United Nations-backed Chimera task force as they ally with the USA and fight a mysterious enemy called the Cartel.
The following weapons were used in the videogame Act of Aggression:
An oversized TDI Vector is depicted as the weapon of choice for Contractors, the basic infantry unit of the Cartel faction.
Jian She Type-05
Vanguards, elite mercenaries available to the Cartel faction, use Jian She Type-05s (A 9mm conversion of the QCW-05) as their primary weapons. The gun is modelled with the carrying handle removed and fitted with a suppressor.
Heckler & Koch MP5A4
MP5A4s with dedicated forend weaponlights are seen in the hands of US Army Delta operatives and "Men in Black" (Bodyguards that appear in some campaign missions.)
US Marines and generic Militia encutered throughout the campaign carry M16A4s without any attachments. The weapon is incorrectly depicted as fully automatic.
SAS snipers are armed with M107 rifles. An in-game upgrade allows the rifle to fire depleted uranium rounds, which increases their damage against vehicles.
US Army snipers use M2010 ESR as their main weapons. An upgrade equips the rifle with a suppressor, ensuring that the snipers will remained concealed, even when firing.
Several vehicles (most notably the default US Army Humvee) are armed with Browning M2HB machineguns.
One of the upgrade kits available for the Humvee replaces its original M2HB with a GAU 19 minigun, increasing its damage against infantry and helicopters. Twin GAU-19s are also seen mounted on the Sentry Turret, Chimera's static defense structure.
One of the upgrade kits available for the US Army Humvee replaces its original M2HB machinegun with a Mk 19 Grenade Launcher, increasing damage to infantry and light armoured vehicles.
The US Army Faction uses FGM-148 Javelin as their primary AT weapon. It can be upgraded with an NLOS Guiding system, allowing much more effective top attacks against tanks and armoured vehicles.
BMG-71 TOW 2
One of the upgrade kits available for the US Army Humvee replaces its original M2HB machinegun for a TOW-2 launcher, increasing damage against armoured targets at the cost of slow fire rate.
An M72 LAW, referred to as the "Viper" (Presumably named after the ill-fated FRG-17 Viper programme back in 1980's), is the standard AT weapon for the Cartel. Upgraded US Delta operatives use the same launcher, under the designation "M72E9".
The SA-18 Grouse, under its original name of "9K38 Igla" ("needle") is the primary weapon of the Cartel's AA infantry unit, the "Grinch". The BMPT Terminator can be equipped with the launcher to increase its AA potential.
The FIM-92 Stinger is correctly depicted as US Army AA rocket launcher.
Metal Storm Weapon Pod
Chimera's "Metal Storm" UGV is based on the real UGV developed by Metal Storm Limited in Australia.
Accuracy International Arctic Warfare 50
Promotional art depicts the SAS sniper unit equipped with a Accuracy International Arctic Warfare 50, instead of the Barrett M107 seen in the actual game.
