This gun was developed a year after the drone revolt in 2223. It was specifically designed to combat the drone threat. This is the tactical version and was issued to paratroopers, swat teams, and special forces. A cheaper and more generalized version (without grenade launcher, flashlight, laser pointer, and scope) to the marines. The X-1 or Puma has a high muzzle velocity and due to the high demand of the gun, most testing was dumped (except for firing tests and basic does it work tests) From the recoil and devastating results to the test dummies has lead the manufacturers to believe that the muzzle velocity is close to or over the modern day sniper's muzzle velocity, so the air brake on the front is necessary. The Puma uses a .8 cm by 5 cm case-less bullet with explosive tip. Has a 30 round mag and has one mode of fire, 3 round burst, this is because three bullets would destroy a drone instantly and full-auto would waste the bullets to fast and semi-auto would not give the soldier enough time to shoot two more bullets before the drone would have a kill shoot and fire. The gun has no safety but does have a small micro chip in the body that determines friend or foe. The gun will not shoot when pointed at a friendly and will shoot at a drone or opposing military force. Has a light weight compact design for close combat and has a effective range of 150 to 180 ft. Detailed specs are not open to the public. Gun was designed by an Australia gun manufacturer and then further refined in the USA. Scopes maximum distance is 170 feet which complies to its firing distance.
About this creation
barrel vents covered
barrel vents open. The barrel vents have a cover to reduce noise when firing and will spring open after about 10-15 3 round bursts.
30 round mag. Full round seen on top
bullet in chamber.

Well now that the drone/human battle is a year under way most of the major human fractions, (i.e. USA, Australia, China, Russia, etc.) have joined to combat the drone threat, so the chip does not need to keep track of the long lists of codes for friends. I think I should of made this clearer, but the chip scans the DNA of the friend or enemy and either puts the safety on or allows you to fire, so unless you can replicate some ones DNA and replace your own with it, your screwed. In summary the chips scans DNA if DNA matches with the ones listed for friend the gun won't fire if it doesn't than it will. And the chip's DNA sensor can go through clothing. Also the drones armor plating has a specific group of atoms in it that identifies it quite clearly from normal metal and that the sensor can pick up. Loop hole closed!
Interesting gun design. There's only one issue I have with it.
"The gun has no safety but does have a small micro chip in the body that determines friend or foe. The gun will not shoot when pointed at a friendly and will shoot at a drone or opposing military force."
In all wars there is espionage and Intel retrieval. This system seems a bit too risky for me since an enemy force could copy the "friendly" signal chip or steal from a dead corpse. Many loop holes can be seen for this. Interesting idea there, it's I see too much possibility for it turning into a countermeasure.
