9mm FMJ ammunition. These bullets will load into any weapon capable of firing 9mm ammunition. In pre-War times, 9mm ammunition was used over the more powerful .45 ammunition because of its slight advantage at penetrating armor.”— In-game description, Van Buren tech demo
Background[edit | edit source]
175 years old by the time the Great War happened, the 9×19mm Parabellum was one of the most popular and widespread ammunition types in the world. Although the U.S. military and federal agencies transitioned to the more powerful 10mm Auto cartridge, the venerable Parabellum remained popular throughout the United States of America. After the war, following a period of scarcity, it re-emerged as the primary pistol round of the New California Republic Army, used by the standard M&A 9mm pistols issued to its troops.
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
