"Mark 1157 Assault Rifle - the very best there is. When you absolutely, positively, got to kill every motherfucker in the room, accept no substitutes." - Anonymous
The Ep.T-III (Assault Rifle No.3) Ekt. MCLVII (Mark 1157) is, along with the M.Tfk.-VI battle rifle, the principle service arm of the Ællenic Imperial Military. A tough, reliable and easily-produced weapon, the Ep.T-III is beloved by soldiers and insurgents alike. Designed to function even in the harshest of conditions (such as the arid deserts and mountains of Western Ællas) and to be easily maintained in the field (requiring little tools or even none in an emergency), the Mark 1157 is extremely easy to use, befitting the Empire's huge army of short-term Conscript soldiers.
