Battle rifles are a type of rifle employed by human military forces. They are often commonly employed by UEG-aligned militaries such as the United Nations Space Command [1] and independent paramilitaries - with some examples used for protection of colonial politicians, such as the Gao Republic's President.[2] They came into prominence during the mid-25th century prior to the Insurrection, gaining widespread popularity across the military.[3]
