Whoops! This page is no longer canon!
Vapor has been around since 2012. Since then, we've had many key players come and go, as well as a significant reboot in 2018, which has left many articles contained in this wiki out-of-date or entirely non-canon. Rather than simply remove parts of our history that no longer apply, we have decided to preserve them in our "Legends Canon," so that they may exist outside of Vapor's proper and current canon history. This is one of those articles.

A mass produced firearm created by Cycuiian State Armaments for use by the Cycuiian Armed Forces. It's primary users within the military consist of close assault platoons, civil guard units stationed in urban surroundings, vehicle crews, skirmishers, logistics personnel, and management personnel.

After the War for Voerdish Sovereignty, field officers came to a conclusion, stating that while current close quarters weapons fielded by the military did the job well, there were many instances where range(shot)guns and lever-action 'quick firing' rifles did not work effectively in suppressing enemy forces. Soldiers that survived the war claimed that enemy forces often took advantage of the inherent slow firing rate of the weapons (along with an infantryman's 'stress' at pumping/cocking and re-aiming a shotgun or lever-action) to escape, or to make a counter attack.

After hearing the complaints of soldiers, several research teams were giving funding to develop a prototype weapon which could address the various concerns. One team, headed by Dr. Dokuro Umikite and Warrant Kommandant Chiyen Oshimada found a solution in the form of a "Miniature Automatic Rifle". The weapon was a miniaturized automatic rifle mechanism (inside of a newly modeled, 'carbine sized' frame) adapted to fire handgun rounds. Both the armaments board and higher officers welcomed the design; the small structure allowed for any one soldier to equip it, the handgun round could be fired both in bursts and full automatic with negligible recoil, and, it was reasonably easy to maintain.

On the 30th of August, 1894, manufacturing of the MAR began. Recent developments (as of 1907) include a switch to an open bolt design to increase simplicity and automatic fire capability, at a cost of accuracy (which in the case of an automatic weapon, was not of too much concern to the developers.)
