The PTW X-5 is an assault rifle developed by Park Tech Weapons, which has since been adapted for use by various special forces and private security forces.
The X-5 was Park Tech Weapons's attempt to create an advanced assault rifle, a heavier weapon for less mobile units. In addition to low recoil and a slightly larger than average magazine, the X-5 features early modular technology to allow for the easy addition of an under-shotgun of grenade launcher.
A 1996 deal with Park Tech Weapons saw Triangle Security Services adopt PTW firearms as standard issue for their security teams. While TSS specialists might use other weapons their stand-issue assault rifle is the X-5.
