This is the MAR-70 I.O.B. Rifle, an assault rifle used by the imperial military in the black age universe. The IOB uses Ionized Ozone Beam operation to fire. The IOB was originally conceived as a replacement for the F.O.B. rifle. While this plan fell short of its original exspectations, the IOB managed to find its way into the hands of several divisions, and was used to great effect where it could be employed properly, especially with the assault troops and with the imperial special forces. While IOB weapons arn't as powerful as thier F.O.B. counterparts, the IOB is far less taxing on its weapon's conponents, allowing for controlable automatic fire. The IOB rifle is also smaller than the older F.O.B. rilfle, but lacks the long range accuracy of its predeccesor.
