Ancient Metropolis by MoreVespenegas Ancient Metropolis by MoreVespenegas
Just a steel ranger enjoying an afternoon stroll through the neighborhood. Place isn't quite what it once was, a little rougher around the edges but it's still home.
Based on the writing of Kkat's Fallout Equestria but no particular character.
Any resplendence to OC's in this fic or others is purely coincidental. :D
EDIT: Also I took out the background and made it more... noir...y. [link]
Also I hear this got on the front of the EQD [link] drawfriend. Thanks for featuring me there and welcome to any residents from there dropping by.

I wonder what that weapon on his right side is. The one on the left is clearly a minigun, but the one on the right?
A flamethrower, maybe?

This was my study on textures. Felt like I was just drawing metal spheres and cylinders over and over again for a while there. Not going to draw metal again for a while heh.

The Tokarev round is known for racing right through body armor:

Да вы, прикалываетесь, что ли? что за мода в FoE вставлять древние советские патроны\оружие? Как вообще можно было догадаться патрон от ТТ\ППШ сюда всунуть.... Блять, пусть бы лучше 9х39 СПБ-6 везде сували, была бы хоть какая то гордость. А это ну просто фэйспалм.

Yes, belt fed soviet pistol ammo. In my defense that's not the craziest thing in the picture.

Understandable confusion. The minigun used today is chambered in 7.62x52 rifle rounds but I thought it would be a bit large for a pony-mounted weapon so I opted for an obscure pistol round instead.

Funfact: Fallout 3 minigun (and thus probably Fallout Equestria minigun) uses 5mm rounds.

:iconmorevespenegas:
MoreVespenegas Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It does say that but it never specifies what length and no 5mm caliber exists in real life. I thought it might be a 5.56mm round but it uses 5.5645mm for the assault rifles. Actual miniguns use rifle rounds in 7.6251mm caliber but I thought that was a bit large so I decided to use a pistol round in the same caliber, an old soviet cartridge 7.6225mm which was used a lot during WWII and early cold war era. Not sure how canon it would be since caliber is not mentioned in the book but it could always be a modified variant.

Actually, a 5mm caliber does exist. [link]
Still, it seems weird to me for a minigun to not use rifle rounds.

My opinion is that the minigun uses 5mm rounds because using anything else would burn through your ammo too quickly. In both New Vegas and Fallout 3, 7.62x51mm rounds are scarce enough that an automatic rifle's rate of fire would be useless in comparison to the accuracy of a sniper rifle. The game developers needed a bulk ammunition to use for the minigun, a rare suppressive-fire weapon. Considering the Tokarev round's tendency for defeating body armor and its lesser weight compared to rifle rounds, it could make a good minigun round for close range fights.

...

Now I want to make a mod that chambers the New Vegas minigun for Tokarev ammunition. Confound these ponies. They drive me to mod :D

Ah it's a wildcat cartridge. I could not find anything on it in my few minutes of skimming the internet. A mounted minigun should use rifle rounds but based on it's performance in the game pistol rounds wouldn't surprise me. It has awful spread and penetration which might be explained by it being a more compact model.

Uuh, 7.62x25mm are rifle rounds, but in your picture they look like pistol rounds. Fix it!

Steelhooves usually has a more... explosive loadout, but maybe he has a wider variety of weaponry he uses.
