Pindad SS-1

Notes: The SS-1 series of assault rifles are essentially license-built versions of the Belgian FNC, with a few changes (mostly to suit Indonesian manufacturing methods), which produce some minor detail, weight, and dimension changes. The standard SS-1s are optimized for the SS-109 round, with a 1:7 rifling twist. They use a MIL-STD-1913 rail atop the receiver to mount optics.

There are five main variants of the SS-1: the SS-1-V1 is the standard version, with 17.7-inch barrel and a side-folding tubular metal stock; the SS-1-V3 is identical except for its fixed polymer stock. (All SS-1 variants have stocks which are shorter in pull than the normal FN stock, due to the smaller stature of the average Indonesian soldier.) The SS-1-V2 is a carbine version with a 14.3-inch barrel, but is otherwise identical. The SS-1-V4 is a special police model, mostly identical to the SS-1-V1 but locked to fire only on semiautomatic and with a different flash suppressor. The SS-1-V5 is a short assault rifle with a 9.9-inch barrel tipped with a muzzle brake instead of a flash suppressor; it is generally issued only to Indonesian special operations units and certain government bodyguard details, and is the CQB model of the SS-1. The SS-1-V1 and SS-1-V2 versions can fire Western-type rifle grenades of all types, and the SS-1-V1 may also mount the Pindad SPG-1A underbarrel grenade launcher or several Western-type grenade launchers. The SS-1-V4 version may also fire rifle grenades, but its flash suppressor only allows the firing of certain riot-control type grenades. The SS-1-V5 cannot fire rifle grenades, mount an underbarrel grenade launcher, or mount a bayonet.

In addition, there are two limited production variants of the SS-1 series, designed for use primarily by police forces (as the ammunition comes in several special rubber antiriot rounds in addition to standard-type rounds). They are known as the Sabhara-V1 and Sabhara-V2, and their most unusual feature is the ammunition they fire a locally-produced round which is a 5.56mm NATO case necked up to accept the bullet of a 7.62mm NATO round, and called the MU-11. Both are equipped with folding stocks; the Sabhara-V1 uses a 14.3-inch barrel with a flash suppressor, while the Sabhara-V2 has a 10-inch barrel with a muzzle brake.

Twilight 2000 Notes: The SS-1 series does not exist in the Twilight 2000 timeline.

Merc 2000 Notes: As with many weapons from this part of the world, the SS-1 series are mercenary favorites.
