Developed by Aser-Tellinger and I.I.A in 2049, the TAR-15 became an instant sales hit. After its extensive use by EuroCorp forces during the New York riots in 2052, the weapons was exported under license to several manufacturers world-wide, among them EuroCorp-controlled Accelle-Sys.

Under license, Accelle-Sys designed a more robust model, releasing the new TAR-39 on the market in 2055.

The TAR-39 is a versatile short-range tactical assault rifle used globally by a wide range of Syndicate security forces. It was designed for close quarter combat scenarios and fires .45 caliber light armor-piercing rounds.

The TAR-39 standard model comes equipped with a 1x/2.5x red dot digital rangefinder scope with a built-in DPSS laser sight, and can carry an underbarrel grenade launcher attachment.

The characteristic sound of a TAR-39 firing on full auto is sometimes known as the "EuroCorp Anthem", as it is employed by most armed personnel of that Syndicate.

ComponentsEdit

  • Discrete Trigger Override: Pulling the trigger is an art form. Whether you should squeeze or pull, hold your breath or just press and pray. The discrete trigger override is a digital chip-driven mechanism that allows the weapon to compensate intelligently for the stress and skill of whoever is using the TAR-39, significantly reducing scatter by adjusting the millisecond timing of each shot.
    • Research Energy 7500
  • Electronic Ammo Feed: an electronic ammo feed replaces the mechanical spring-operated magazine with one that utilizes electronic micromotors. This frees up enough space to increase the magazine's capacity by 10 rounds, allowing the user to keep firing.
    • Research Energy 10000
  • TAR-39 Red-Dot Sight: The TAR is not originally fitted for any scope, relying primarily on its iron sights, but by constructing and deploying a new frame, it can be used with a 1x/2.5x red dot digital rangefinder scope carrying a built-in DPSS laser sight.
    • Research Energy 10000
  • FSS Ammo: Replacing the standard-issue .45 with fin-stabilized steel rounds carried in spindle sabots, the power of the TAR-39 is greatly increased. Borrowing its concept from modern caseless munitions, the replacement of a regular lead projectile with a thin steel projectile causes a much higher degree of internal bleeding, why this ammo is often nick-named "Leeches" or "Suckers".
    • Research Energy 15000
  • G40 Grenade Launcher: For some additional firepower in tight situations, a muzzle-loaded 40mm under-barrel grenade launcher has been fitted to the TAR-39. Its first conception was for EuroCorp personnel facing Cayman Global security officers that could pick off the close-combat aligned EuroCorp officers from a distance. These grenades allow the TAR-39 to clear out suspected sniper nests.
    • Research Energy 25000

TriviaEdit

It is strange that the TAR-39 uses a 45 caliber round as most rifles would use a more conventional caliber such as 5.56 or 7.62 calibers, so clearly this is some kind of sub machine gun. It's possible the designers of the game got the idea for this weapon from Half-Life, which also has an SMG with a grenade launcher.
