Okay. Isn't this properly a small rifle or carbine, rather than a pistol? ~~Thorvindr
- Well, doesn't it fire like a pistol? Admiral J. Nebulax (talk) 20px 20:41, 7 April 2006 (UTC)
- It can be set to rapid fire, as demonstrated by 212th Attack Battalion troops on Utapau. Seems more like a machine gun pistol than a rifle, even though it looks very similar to the E-11 "Stormtrooper One" rifle - Kwenn 17:39, 12 April 2006 (UTC)
Did this not also appear in AOTC? Or was that simply a seperate but very similar weapon? I know it appears in the AOTC Visual Dictionary... --ElScoob 00:20, 26 July 2006 (UTC)
Not the same weapon in Battlefront
Hey, I just wanted to say that I do not believe that the DC-15 blaster in the movies is the same weapon used in the Battlefront series of video/computer games. I noticed some major differences, which I will list:
- The DC-15 blaster features a fully collapsible stock, which the clone sidearm in the game lacks.
- The clone sidearm in Battlefront has a triangular piece located on the upper receiver (like the DC-15A blaster rifle), which the DC-15 blaster lacks.
- The sidearm in Battlefront features some kind of self-charging power cell and fires only in semi-automatic, while the DC-15 blaster is a magazine-fed select-fire weapon (semi-auto demonstrated in Star Wars: Republic Commando, and full-auto demonstrated in Episode III: Revenge of the Sith).
- The DC-15 blaster (so named on page 39 of the Attack of the Clones: The Visual Dictionary is (roughly) 2.5-3 feet long, and this is much larger than any pistol in the official canon, while the pistol in the Battlefront series is no more than 1.5 feet long (still ridiculously large for a real-life pistol, but star wars isn't real life ;).
- The DC-15 blaster demonstrated excellent armor penetration capabilities when a clone trooper of the 212th Attack Battalion destroyed a LM-432 crab droid with a single burst of automatic fire. The clone sidearm does not demonstrate this same capability in either BFI or BFII.
Since Battlefront is known to go against traditional SW canon, i think we should either split this article into two different articles (such as "DC-15 blaster" and "DC-15S sidearm") or whatever, since the weapon in battlefront and the weapon featured in ROTS are obviously two different weapons.
