An Anti-machine rifle is a heavy weapon developed by Equestria. The rifle was first developed in response to new war machines the Zebra had begun to use. The weapon was designed, with the intent of destroying robots and killing the drivers of war machines like Tanks.

Spitfire's Thunder, an example of a unique version of the rifle.

The Anti-machine rifle fires powerful piercing rounds that can easily pierce Power Armour and disable a robot or warmachine. The weapons have massive recoil and require a battle-saddle in order to properly use them. The recoil makes the weapon ill-suited to Pegasi, who would be thrown off course by the recoil.


A unique version of the Rifle exists. The weapon is called Spitfire's Thunder and overcomes some of the failings of the original rifle, like the massive recoil. This version was never mass produced or it would likely be a more common sight. The Weapon is owned by Calamity and was produced by Ironclad Industries.
