  • The MWS is based off the real world Steyr AUG A3 variant, which has picatinny rail integrated into the top cover (Armee Universal Gewehr, "Army Universal Rifle"). It was a 5.56mm NATO "bullpup" rifle designed to have different length barrels to convert it into an Assault Sub-Carbine (13.5-inch barrel), Assault Carbine (16-inch barrel), Assault Rifle (20-inch barrel), or Squad Automatic Weapon (24-inch heavy barrel with bipod). There was also a 9mm submachinegun version called the AUG Para that had a 16.5 inch barrel and a magazine well insert that converted it to feed 9mm Parabellum from 25- or 32- round Steyr MPi-69 magazines.
  • "MWS" most likely stands for Modular Weapon System.
