Well, I've managed to deliver a little faster than I expected. So, these here are more sidearms fielded by the soldiers of The Supremacy, which is one alien empire among many in my Project A worldbuilding, The Supremacy comprises primarily of the Drox species, a drawing of which can be found down below:
1: Kivtlor-2 Sidearm - Though the Drox species are well known for their usage of plasma based weaponry, a few tools of their arsenal come in the form of more traditional kinetic weapons. The Kivtlor-2 Sidearm is one such example. This pistol uses both chemical propulsion and magnetic rails to expel 8mm projectiles at a muzzle velocity of 700 mps. The Kivltor-2’s magazine holds ammunition for 16 shots, and possesses an expected semi-auto rate of fire. The pistol measures up to it’s plasma based counterpart, the Aorthvekk-Zual, in terms of power, accuracy, and lack of recoil, while actually exceeding it slightly in range. Regardless, the weapon is still unpopular amongst many Supremacy soldiers.
2: Kivtlor-Goarlh Sidearm - A simple tool, the Kilvtor-Goarlh is an explosives ordnance launcher in pistol form. Specifically, the weapon fires a single armor piercing high mass explosive projectile intended to instantly take out single targets, punch through minor defenses, or incapacitate small vehicles. The 25mm by 65mm projectile is barrel loaded, and once the trigger is pulled, is accelerated to a muzzle velocity of 370 mps. The weapon is niche in its uses, and is thus quite rare.
3: Kivtlor-1 Handcannon - Somewhat a counterpart to the Kolgbrev, this particular weapon can be accurately considered the ballistics based version of that handcannon. Powerful and heavy, accurate and long ranged, the only real downside to this pistol is it’s high recoil and increased weight; it may also look front-heavy, however, a counter weight in the grip makes the weapon easier to handle than otherwise expected. Primarily using magnetic rails, this handcannon expels 11.2mm high mass projectiles at a muzzle velocity of 1100 mps, drawing from a 10 round magazine.
4: Kivtlor-4 Snub - Surprisingly, despite their fondness for big weapons, the Supremacy does make use of a proper snub pistol for their armies. Though gone unliked by many, the Kivtlor-4 Snub is a weapon that’s been made mandatory for all soldiers to carry on their person in addition to any required primary sidearm. The weapon lacks armor piercing capabilities and is short ranged, but still, its lightweight, incredibly accurate, possesses almost no recoil, and is, most of all, very cheap to produce. In terms of statistics, the Snub fires 6mm by 36mm needle-like projectiles at a muzzle velocity of 350 mps, drawing from a 7 round magazine.
