The MX is a 6.5 mm assault rifle used as a standard-issue weapon for the BLUFOR army. It is lightweight, reliable, easily serviceable and compatible with a large number of accessories. Several variants of the MX rifle exist: MX 3GL is equipped with a 3GL grenade launcher. MXM is a designated marksman rifle for engaging targets from a larger distance compared to assault rifles. MX SW is a light support weapon providing light machinegun support. And finally MXC is a carbine version with shorter barrel, better suited for close quarters combat.
The MX is an assault rifle chambered in the 6.5x39mm caseless round. It is the standard issue rifle of NATO. It is produced by a Missouri based arms manufacturer, CMMG. The 6.5x39mm round increases stopping power while decreasing weight at the same time. The rifle is constructed largely out of polymer making it quite lightweight. It saw extensive use by NATO peacemakers during the Altian Civil War.
The MX is availible in CQB Carbine (MXC), Long-barrel Marksman (MXM), and a underslung grenade launcher variant. The MX is also availible in a 100-round SAW variant (MX SW.)
The MX Series appears to be based on a hybrid between the Robinson XCR, Bushmaster ACR, and FN SCAR-series rifles, due to the handguard being similar to the XCR's, the reciever and stock looking like those of an ACR, and the overall appearance bearing a similarity to the FN SCAR. However, none of the inspirations fire the same round (caseless 6.5x39mm) as the MX (The XCR and ACR are available in 5.56x45mm NATO and 6.8x43mm SPC, with the XCR and the ACR's predecessor, the Magpul Dynamics Masada, being avalable in the 7.62x39mm M43 round. The SCAR-series is avalaible in 5.56x45 as well as 7.62x51mm NATO.).
