Battle Saddle Sniper System by JustMoth Battle Saddle Sniper System by JustMoth
Straight off the desks of the New Canterlot Republic: Office of Weapons and Logistics. Here is a much annotated design draft for an earth pony compatible sniper rifle battle saddle, along with the submission brief.

The pony body is from ~KP-ShadowSquirrel 's excellent pony models. The rifle is somethign I found for free ages back on the net. Made in 3DS max.

See it in action here here!

This is tangentially related to Kkat's excellent fan-fic Fallout: Equestria, which has neither the NCR, or the OWL, or even such a battle saddle...

I totally blame :iconkershafangs: for putting this idea into my head!

The only thing I don't much care for this in this pic is the NCR flag, as I don't think it really fits (I'm aware that it's a pun/parody/homage/whathaveyou of the NCR flag from the games).

I don't think I want to fire a rifle with a barrel that breaks in the middle.

I think that arm might be a bit too fragile, but it is kind of refreshing idea.
I still rather stick to my fixed gun battle saddles. ^^

Yeah, there's a reason only one of these rigs were ever actually made ^^'

I especially like the fact that it folds up. INGENIOUS!

lucky ponies have magic and different ballistic and structural properties then us, or I could point out SOOO many flaws here... still cool idea, though.

The gun was carefully calibrated with just enough magic and awesome to be able to fully ignore reality. :D
