That looks like a spin off of the 20? 30mm? anti tank gun that came out just before world war two and was used by the fins? I cannot remember but I recognized the skid, the barrel brea, the top loading box mag and the trigger group.

Yep, it's some kind of mix of few anti-tank rifles. Lahti, Boys, Solothurn and maybe japanese type 97.

axis of optical sight offset relative to the axis of the barrel to the left. Like on Boys antitank rifle, and another weapon with top placed magazine. Bren, Madsen, type 73 machineguns; boys, type97, lahti L-39 anti-tank rifles, and many others.

Oh yeah, and the gun is SICK too! I love you have the scope side-mounted to accommodate the inverted magazine. And the enlarged trigger and trigger guard are perfect for hooves! The ski-bipod ties it all together. Awesome weapon!! You should design for video games!

This is INCREDIBLE!! I absolutely LOVE the lighting in the sky. How the stars shine through in daylight signifying a thin atmosphere. It really gives it that other-worldly feel!

I love this piece, and I'm not a huge nitpick about file types, but there is a crapton of artifacting when it's viewed in full size.

A rifle hybrid between the LATHI-39 and the Barrett?

I think it's hybrid of Lahti, type 97 and Hungarian Gepard M2 or M3 rifles.

The background here reminds me of the Vasquez Rocks. Seeing as how they've shown up in basically every iteration of Star Trek, Buffy, and Power Rangers, it totally gives your piece extra sci-fi feeling. And of course, the rickety post-apocalyptic windmill structure is good stuff.

[Here's my own take:]

"Do you think any more of those Royalist bastards would send any more TROJANS at us?"

"Probably not. We've already bagged whole platoons of those mechs with our TK-35 rifle. What they probably would do would be to try to smash this whole area with artillery to take us out, or send in a sniper team."

"But what's the point? We and the rest of the Company had already delayed them as the rear-guard long enough. By the time they break through and we have to retreat, Federation HQ would had pulled our boys and girls back enough to regroup. They won't have time to dig in for the counter-attack, not in this stretch of the desert."

"Won't stop them from trying."

"Contact from the North-West!"

"I see them... ANOTHER TROJAN platoon? Damn, they really don't care how many their own boys die trying to break through, do they?"

"Not so different from how HQ treats us, huh? (Or the Dominion, for that matter) ... Oh, two of them just went down. Looks like our buddies in the other ridges had started shooting."

"Let's us get to it then, shall we?"

====

For nearly a hundred years, the three interstellar pony empires of the Platinum Principality, the Typhoon Dominion and the Epona Federation had waged an endless, intermittent war against one another in the Sapphire Arm of the Concordian Galaxy. Billions had died in the carnage of the front-lines that stretched across countless worlds.

Entire generations had been consumed by violence. For many, war is all they know. Many would give in to their hatred and become avatars of death on the battlefields. Others would be consumed by despair from the suffering that spread like wild fire. Cruelty, selfishness and greed would prosper and thrive. In these dark times, Friendship seemed to be such a distant concept.

Hope - what little remain - lies in the stories of original birthplace of all the known races of Concordia, whether they be ponies or non-ponies - the fabled homeworld of Harmony, and in particular the tales of Equestria, where legends had said is the homeland of the Equestrian race. Countless legends abound of that place, and spoke of god-like Princesses that were the fusion of all three pony tribes, of artifacts of unparalleled power called the Elements of Harmony, of heroes who wield them that guard the land against all evil.

Hope came in the belief that one day, all ponykind could once more live in peace and harmony like the ancient times before. But for many, Equestria and Harmony was no more than a myth, a distant memory. After all, nobody knows what happened to their homeworld, and its location been lost to antiquity for over 30,000 years...

Reminds me of a description for a science fiction painting I saw once. The idea was that they had found what could end their centuries long war, but war had become all they knew and what their entire civilization was built on, so they had to try and destroy it. The box actually contained love according to the description.

Interesting. I wrote this in a platter of WH40K, Armoured Trooper VOTOMS and other military sci-fi's background settings mixed together. It was supposed to serve part of the backstory of a MLP Sci-Fi world-building project I was planning that never got off the ground

Makes you wonder what happened that caused the Three Tribes era to repeat in Space, and whatever happened to the Royal Sisters and the Elements...
