Neither were designed for anything but CQB and suppressive fire on area targets.

It is a US designed weapon, done so by Maxwell Atchisson. It was licensed to be produced by Dewoo.

All part of a lead up to the CAWS program...which has recently be restarted.


USAS prototype circa 1978

That photograph is very old, but yeah no matter what the cover they use, it often looks like an M-16 on steroids. Usually they also have a large, oversized carry handle.

Combat shot guns are useful in heavily wooded areas and also in urban combat. They don't require much accuracy and pack a good punch. They were used in Vietnam and still have roles to play in many armies and police forces.

Of course it's old it was taken in the '70's and that prototype doesn't even exist anymore.

Well regardless of what I can't see there, I think that I'd go with the Jackhammer or the USAS12 as my shortranged boomstick-from-hell of choice. Seriously, firing 8-12 rounds of 00 buckshot in a matter of only a few seconds ... it would just be something I'd love to experience.

They have their uses. Use flechette ammo and you're filling the air in front of you with kevlar piercing deadly projectiles. You just begin with the understanding that its a secondary weapon, usable in very specific circumstances. Assault rifle remains the king under the vast majority of circumstance.
