"Go fuck yourself!"
The MP-500 Kulak (Fist) is the standard issue handgun for the Mecharussian Armed Forces and Civil Pacification, designed by Izhmekh. Chambered in 12.7x32mm, it is notable for its powerful punch while maintaining relatively-low recoil when compared to its Frenkish equivalent, the SS-12 - it uses a similar electromagnetic recoil dampener to the GShGm heavy chaingun. While it lacks armour-piercing capability (unless augmented with plasma-coated rounds), it will kill unprotected opponents very easily.
Notable Users and Uses
- In Red Planet, Yegor Bykov uses the MP-500 as his standard sidearm, as opposed to the Spetsnaz-issue PP-1 Kryuk plasma pistol. Arkady Grishenko also uses one - his pistol is used by Darcy Lawrence to destroy a terror drone when he is attacked and disarmed by it.
- In Access Violation, Victor Golovkin is seen using the MP-500, also as opposed to the Kryuk. As in Red Planet, his pistol is used by someone else to execute a kill.
- Yvacheslav Drago dual-wields two MP-500s, both named after his two granddaughters.
