Default Statting 4e Weapons & Vehicles

I know that there are fan-created supplements for sale on DriveThruRPG, but I thought I'd try my hand at statting "missing"* weapons that I'm likely to include in a 4e [rules] campaign.

How do these look?

M231 Firing Port Weapon
Type: SMG Ammo: 5.56x45 Reliability: 3 ROF: 6 Damage: 2 Crit: 3 Blast: – Range: 4 Mag: 30 Armor: 0 Weight: 1 Price: 250

M3A1 "Grease Gun"
Type: SMG Ammo: .45 Reliability: 4 ROF: 4 Damage: 1 Crit: 3 Blast: – Range: 3 Mag: 30 Armor: 0 Weight: 1 Price: 200

I used the canonical M4A1 stats as the foundation for the M231. For the M3A1, I looked at the Players Manual's other SMGs, and the M1911A1 (the only other .45 caliber weapon in the book).

Suggestions for stat adjustments?

More to come...

*For example, the MP5 submachinegun isn't included in the PM's Weapons section, despite the fact that the Officer Archetype illustration conspicuously wields an example.

Default Ot-64A/SKOT 2A

Conspicuously missing from the 4e Players Manual's Polish Military Vehicles section:

OT-64A/SKOT 2A

Type: APC Reliability: 5 Combat Speed: 4/3 W Travel Speed: 10/6 Armor (Front, Side, Rear): 4 "" Fuel Type: D Fuel Cap: 350 Fuel Cons: 6 Crew 2+10 Cargo: 300 Main Weapon: KPV (T) Secondary Weapons: RPK (C) Price: 90,000

The OT-64/SKOT 2 version has identical stats, except the Main Weapon is a 12.7 DShK or PKT machinegun (PG) and Crew is 2+18.

Roomy!

Yeah, that's a good one and definitely needed for an authentic EFK style T2K campaign.

Here's a video from Ian on the M231 Port-firing weapon.

https://youtu.be/FuZmAtrRsN0

Because the weapon fires from an open bolt and has no sights or sights that would have to be added (I build the front sight into a collar that just screwed on using the mount at the front of the handguard), the weapon would have a very short range. My range assumes you have the model with the wire stock off of an M3 Grease Gun. Its cyclic rate of 1200rpm would also hurt its accuracy. In V2.2 I set its stats at:

Range: 30m (25m for stockless guns)
Dam: 2 (due to the shortened barrel)
ROF: 12
RCL: 12

A couple of years back, some parts allowed enthusiasts to make semi versions of the M231.
