[edit | edit source]
The Transformational Defense Industries (or TDI) first introduced a visually exotic SMG chambered in .45 ACP at the end of 2005, naming it the "KRISS Super V", and it is claimed to be an SMG with extremely low recoil.
The sample weapon fires .45 ACP cartridges. Due to it being full-auto only, and with a staggering rate of fire at 1200 RPM, it was considered ammo-exhausting. The sample weapon used a 7-round magazine modified from that of the M1911A1, depleting the whole magazine in a blink of an eye. Designers soon realized that the rate of fire was too fast for an SMG, prompting them to plan to lower it to around 850 RPM. It was commonly believed that firing heavy .45 ACP rounds at 1200 RPM on a weapon that wasn't even 4 pounds heavy (the MK5 was 3.9 lbs heavy, with the design target around 3 lbs) would create difficulties in controlling the weapon, but the KRISS MK5 was easy to handle. According to those who test fired the weapon, the recoil was even lighter than that of the M1911 pistol.
The weapon is equipped with a 5.5-inch (around 140mm) barrel, with left-hand twist rifling at 16 inches (406 mm). A folding stock is also provided. The weapon comes with a selector capable of adjusting firing modes between single, two-round burst and full auto. An earlier variant with only semi- and full-auto modes was also introduced. The manual safety lever and the selector lever are separate from each other, and support ambidextrous operation. This design was questioned by some test users, especially when it comes to the position of the selector. Though the thumb of the firing hand can operate the safety lever with ease, the selector switch had to be operated with the other hand or by letting go of the grip to reach the lever. This problem was fixed on the second generation of KRISS SMGs, namely the K10, which merged the two levers into one.
The KRISS Vector uses 28- and 30-round magazines built by KRISS, which are in fact lengthened Glock 21 magazines. A 13-round magazine from a Glock 21 was used when the KRISS Super V prototype was shown in 2007. However, the prototype had the "25" marking on the full-auto position of the selector, which hinted that TDI then may design a 25-round magazine for it. But however, the actual products used 28- and 30-round magazines, therefore production KRISS Vectors had the numerical markings replaced by shape markings.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
Someone with a weird personality, don't talk much with others usually, but very reliable when executing missions, which in addition to her helping others in silence, makes her more or less welcome. (性格有些古怪的家伙，平时不太和别人说话，但是在执行任务时十分可靠，并且会无言地帮助别人，使得她还挺受欢迎的。)
|Cafeteria stories-VECTOR "Catpaw"|
In general, the Halloween party went quite well, so far.
Of course, with prank-girls come the unsociable ones.
"Vector why are you standing here instead of going to the Halloween?"
"Ah, it's you, commander." She had no emotions on her face.
"Need me for something?.....Hmm, so there's actually something in which I can be used?"
"Everyone's dressed up for the Halloween, why are you still in your casual clothes."
"......" This kid..... "Not going to the party is even worth. Go change your clothes for Halloween now, you should be able to catch up with all the rest."
Fortunately out of fear that those prankies may even target clothes, a few sets of Halloween costumes had been prepared in advance.
"Do I have to?" The hesitation in her eyes are almost overflowing.
"I gave the key to Vector whose focus kept drifting about. Though I didn't exactly know whether this babysitting tone actually works, anyway,
Orange glasses, hollow pumpkin earpins, black leather shoes with crosses, and a pair of yellow socks all the way up to the middle of her legs.
Before coupling with the cat-ears, -paws and the signature double-tails of Nekomata--
"Only this one's size fits." She spoke calmly.
"Is being cute alone enough?" Vector raised her eyebrows, looking at me as if she meant it.
Vector nodded towards me, rubbing her chin with her catpaw gloves, speaking to herself: "Oh...speaking of being cute, I may remember reading some manga when I was bored..."
"Yes, like this."
|Cafeteria stories-VECTOR "The Bigot"|
Grifon commanding room.
Commander: That's all for the mission.
Commander: Is there anything bad?
Commander: The candidates are chosen by the client and IOP. Now that you are in this list means that they consider you capable of completing this mission.
Commander: Any more questions, Vector?
Commander: Looking good from the sounds of it.
Commander: And uh...Vector, it's a wedding-themed session this time. You ain't having no expectation at all? The others were quite excited about it.
Commander: (So you still want a try......) Uh......ok, after all everyone thinks differently.
The day of official photography.
I started patrolling the filming floor after watching FN57's take for a while.
Though I did check everything through from personnel to equipment, still, to prevent emergencies, more walks on the scene are needed.
The other studios are also starting their takes aside from the one FN57's in.
Vector: What, sir. Did you locate a bomb inside the make-up room?
Vector: ......Apologies for the shock. We had to take our weapons with us in this photography. I might as well look like a dangerous bride.
Vector: No need for sympathy, sir. ......I should be the last one out?
Vector: It's said that this is the main gown for official occasions...... Troublesome to put on. Took a lot of time arranging my hair alone. Honestly, I feel a bit choked out now.
Vector: I have nothing to complain if it's mission-mandatory...... But it must be hard for female humans to take this kind of photo.
Vector: ......is that so. I cannot understand......It's just a set of clothes, what a pity to give it too much meaning. Like us......(soft voice)
I heard her voice, but turned away from it as per usual.
The photography kept on as planned. As I entered the largest studio, a crew was just about to take over. Our protection target--the actual couple, are preparing to head for the next studio.
Commander: Vector, is everything going on well?
Vector: Aside from the photographer complaining about my emotions, yes. Sir, those two are our protection targets this time, am I right?
Vector: If it's out of concern of a possible hit, just clear the area and leave them alone here and take photos as they like would be better.
Vector: We were taking guns in our photos.
Vector: ......so those two, are also in the dark.
Vector: I don't have the hobby of leaking secrets, sir. Furthermore, I have no one to leak this to.
Vector: They look happy. But what they don't know is that they are protected by lies.
Vector: I'm but part of the lie. Then, I'll just play my role right.
Vector set foot on a short wooden box, as the staff helped shape the train of her dress.
Commander: Eh......Vector, I got something to say.
Commander: Not an order, Vector. Yeah, we did come here on an official mission......But I want all dolls, be it you or others, to have a nice day here.
Vector fell into silence. Perhaps it was an illusion, but for a second I felt the cold emotion of Vector lightening up for a bit.
Vector looked at the candle stand beside her, as the flame cast a warm ray of light in her eyes.
Inspiration[edit | edit source]
In the art collection THE ART OF GIRLS' FRONTLINE UNTIL THE STARS sold in March 2017, the inspiration for the character of Vector is revealed.
The first time [I] saw the shape of Vector, just immediately thought she would be a silverish-grey-haired, serious and a bit cold girl. Since it's a modern gun, so it isn't something like tactical garments with all the smell of war like that of others, and chose the uncumbersome one-piece dress and short hair, with the main color themes of black and yellow pairing with a clean white blouse, in an attempt to give a clean and smart impression. 第一次看到vector的外形时，就觉得应该是个银灰色头发的、认真又有点冷的少女，因为本身是现代枪，所以服装上看起来不是像其他人那样有战斗感的战术服装，从枪身上提取图形和颜色为元素，选择了不累赘的连衣短裙和短发，主色是黑色和黄色搭配干净的白衬衣，希望能给人清爽帅气的印象。
White Album?[edit | edit source]
MK416 is usually chosen as a support for Vector, however with G11 around MK416 is usually abandoned in favor of her. Sad story.
But the AR-world is quite a mess, with 416 being especially keen on (retaliation towards) M16. To the degree that she would go to break M16's leg if given a break. However, in the voiceline of Vector, the "Prototype" line quickly reminds a lot of commanders about White Album.
Later developments even feature G11 and 416 fighting for the position right behind Vector.
An AR of an SMG[edit | edit source]
Vector boasts high damage and RoF among SMGs, even on par with that of some ARs, making her a veritable AR with considerable durability, which, coupled with the emphasis on output capabilities, raised Vector's position among SMGs. A nuke-pair is also possible if MK416 is paired with her.
Vector's molotov received a huge buff after the ability system's overhaul, raising its damage. And with the introduction of some high-dodge Sangvis units, the molotov of Vector's that guarantees damage and comes with a short cooldown makes her ability one of the most valuable in the game.
And 416's grenade, albeit with a small area-of-effect, has a short cooldown and high damage, with a matching effect-tile with Vector, which makes the pair effective for mass-extermination.
The Halloween Shortening[edit | edit source]
Vector stands a height of around 6.5 heads in her normal illustration, making her someone with a good body figure.
However, it is quickly discovered that Vector not only had smaller breasts but also a shorter height(at around 5 heads, in agreement with the head-shoulder ratio). Her weapon also had a shock-dampening stock
better for kids.
Which is a direct reversal of Springfield's having her breasts enlarged with every outfit.
1.9m?[edit | edit source]
Following the Halloween Shortening, Vector's wedding dress as part of the "Sweet Oath" in March 2018, suddenly grew to a 9-head height (with a eye-watering body shape).
|The height just can't be below 1.9|
And the truth is that the dress would be longer if not specified otherwise, and when it comes to taking photos, the heightening with the assistance of objects is relatively common. Plus that it is explicitly mentioned that Vector actually stood on a wooden crate to have her photos taken.
Negativity MAX[edit | edit source]
Vector's voicelines are more or less negative to some degree.
And in reality, the Vector's built by an American company, designed by a Swede, and the patent for its bolt traces back to France. It bore much speculation due to its exotic appearance, with even more exotic appearances as it kept getting updated. Though turning heads for some time with its shape and unique action mechanism, most customers still remain skeptical towards the weapon.
With so many ups and downs in its life, with a name-switch of the company and a new name for itself. Eventually, though having impressive designs and performance, the Vector was never favoured by the military or by the civilians due to its high price. It did find a place in films thanks to its futuristic shape, however.
"Though silent but very reliable. Odd personality but quite welcomed." Though described so in the earliest descriptions, what the voicelines reflect is more self-abandoning after all Vector's been through.
Perhaps the line in the "Lone Wizard" event would suit her best?
"You'll kill us, human. (你会害死我们，人类。)"
"We can die for you, but don't think I want it that way. (我们可以为了你去死，但别以为我是心甘情愿这么做的。)"
vivi[edit | edit source]
As the two G&K protagonists of the story in the "Lone Wizard" event, Vector and PP-90 could be called a duo with entirely contrasting personalities. Vector kept on being negative, while PP-90's active to being "so noisy." (per FN57), and Vector was nicknamed "vivi" by PP-90.
After all vivi was much faster to read and type than vector right
And though vivi hated the vivi nickname, FN57 noted at the end of the event that "the whole base's saying it (全基地都这么叫了)". Perhaps vivi accepted this nickname at last, but rather than saying that the event changed her, she might as well just simply gave up the struggle xD
Sarcastic[edit | edit source]
Also inspired by the "Lone Wizard" event, in which vivi talks in a straightforward and sarcastic fashion. As is known to all commanders who watched the plot, vivi commented on that Kiana is an idiot, that she fights better than even T-dolls, and that the head of the academy is pretending to be... even though she's good, and such.
PP-90 commented on this as that vivi has a good sense of humor, while 57 thought her as with "a leaky mouth", that vivi talks too seriously.
As to which it is... It is better to leave it to commanders to decide.
