The Eagle IV design is based almost entirely on the incredibly successful Arasaka WMA "Minami 10" SubGuns, but with significantly "chunkier" styling. It was actually designed by two members of the original Minami 10 team, but incorporated several aspects that were not incorporated in the WMA. It has been designed from the ground up to use over-pressure 10mm caseless rounds with significantly greater gas pressure than the standard 10mm CL. The heavier receiver assembly to handle the overpressure rounds partially explains the style of the weapon.|
The 10mm over-pressure rounds are sold as 10mmTD or 10TD ammo and is marked with a blue stripe around the base and a red primer to distinguish it from regular 10mm loads. It is not recommended for use in other 10mm weapons, but is of the same dimensions and can be used interchangeably (at a -1 Reliability) in most other weapons.
The TD Eagle IV also incorporates a heat-resistant barrel and receiver group for reliable sustained autofire, a design "oversight" in the WMA. It is illustrated above with a factory standard 20 round magazine (for more comfortable carry) and also comes packaged with two 40 round magazines (interchangeable with the magazines from the WMA).
