The Type 26 is a Kohlan infantry weapon typically issued to those in junior combat leadership roles. Firing a relatively light 5.4mm cartridge at 840 RPM, the weapon more or less fills the same role as an assault rifle - it is a light, select-fire weapon chambered in the Kohlan equivalent of an intermediate cartridge.

Since file leaders - a file being the Kohlan counterpart to a squad, or more properly a half-platoon, nominally composed of sixteen members split into two teams of eight - are expected to lead from the front, it was thought appropriate for them to be armed with a lightweight automatic weapon that would prove more handy in close-quarter battle than the longer and heavier Type 14 semi-automatic rifle. In spite of this, however, the Type 26 has no provision for mounting a bayonet.

The weapon feeds from 32-round double-stack box magazines inserted into the left-hand side of the receiver, and features a three-position safe/semi-auto/full-auto fire selector. Typically the weapon is fired in short bursts of two to three rounds, with semi-automatic fire being used for long-range shooting and ammunition conservation. An integrated reflector optic allows for quick target acquisition in all conditions.

The "typical" daily-issued combat load of ammunition for the weapon is six magazines carried in two pouches on the belt, with a further six magazines stowed in the knapsack. Additional ammunition is often issued when heavy combat is anticipated, packed in disposable textile or plastic bandoliers. In practice, however, much like human troops Kohlan soldiers prefer to carry as much ammunition as they can acquire.

Any chance we'll see more weapons platforms made like this?

Honestly can't say. Between college work taking up a decent bit of time and my general lack of any real motivation to draw stuff, it's unlikely.
