The Pattern IV is the larger version of it’s single-shot cousin. While many Imperial Navy vessels have opted to field the full-sized “IronClaw” Pattern Assault Shotgun, some still prefer the Pattern IV. The small rotating drum negates the need for a tube-fed ammo system. It’s prone to jam more often, but the compact design allows it to function like an over-sized pistol (for those with proper strength or equipment to reduce it’s overbearing recoil). This in turn frees the crewman’s other hand for a naval shield or melee weapon. It’s semi-auto capability also has the benefit of putting out a large amount of carnage.
