FRAG-12 Shotgun Ammunition:
There are a variety of different ammunition for Shotguns. One of the most interesting is the FRAG-12 ammunition. Designed to be used in a twelve-gauge shotgun, they are special explosive grenades. They come in three different types. These include high explosive (HE), high explosive fragmentation - antipersonnel (HE-FA), and high explosive armor piercing (HE-AP.) While they do not carry the warhead of larger grenades, tehy can still be highly effective and can be even fired in automatic shotguns.
The shell arms about three meters (9.8 feet) from being fired and has an effective range of around two hundred meters (656.2 feet.) The high explosive armor piercing is a shaped charge designed to penetrate half an inch of armor plate.
High Explosive (HE): Grenade / shell inflicts 1D6x10 S.D.C. with a blast radius of 3.3 feet (1.0 meters)
High Explosive Fragmentation - Antipersonnel (HE-FA): Grenade / shell inflicts 5D6 S.D.C. with a blast radius of 8.2 feet (2.5 meters)
High Explosive Armor Piercing (HE-AP): Grenade / shell inflicts 2D6x10 S.D.C. when fired directly at a target and grenade inflicts 5D6 S.D.C. with a blast radius of 3.3 feet (1.0 meters) to indirect targets. Round also has a +6 to penetrate body armor.
Note: This is a real world weapon.
