"USEC safe house, undisclosed address in Seattle. December 13, 2045"

USEC operators in Cascadia have a wide array of weapons and equipment at their disposal. Due to the nation's relationship with Russia, civilian imports of Saiga and VEPR rifles are common among civilian shooters and hunters. This allows operators the freedom to use AK variants, as ammo will always be plentiful. Seen in this photo are a number of USEC owned weapons, including a factory new PP19 Vityaz.

An old country flag, taken as a trophy is also visible. Freedom Movement fighters are often seen with several derivatives of the US flag in their possession -the most common being the Betsy Ross flag. Devotees to the cause are often seen with tattoos of the flags on their necks.

Lore! I love making lore posts.

I think my biggest jealousy of "CGI comics" is scenes like this, where you can pile layer after layer of context and world building like nobody's business.

Also... what do you mean "relationship with Russia"? I might have to walk back my overt contempt for the Freedomers!

So in lore that has yet to be explored, I wanted Cascadia to have extensive trade with Russia. Many of the other nations rely on foreign aid or trade to supplement their gdp.

Cascadia in particular exports technology and manufactured goods to Russia, and Russia is kind enough to export automobiles and other consumer goods to Cascadia. Russia also helped with the formation and equipping of the country's military (similar to what the US did with the Iraqi security forces), which is why we see SWAT units using GAZ TIGRs and BTRs on occasion. At one point in planning, Arthur was a full blooded russki until I focused the story a bit more.

Non lore explanation is that I own a few Russian guns any like putting them in my comic lmao

re: non-lore explanation

I've heard far more trivial reasons to start a webcomic. Keep grindin'!
