Stats / Data
The KRISS Vector is a series of weapons based upon the parent submachine gun design developed by the American firearms company KRISS USA, formerly Transformational Defense Industries (TDI). The various weapons in the Vector family use an unconventional delayed blowback system combined with an in-line design to reduce perceived recoil and muzzle climb.
In the spring of 2007, the company then known as TDI announced that they were in the process of developing a new submachine gun. This experimental firearm would make use of a unique mechanical action, originally designed and patented by French engineer Renaud Kerbrat. This action, called the 'KRISS Super V' or sometimes referred to as 'vector-delayed blowback' or 'off-axis blowback', is an articulated mechanism which allows the bolt and an inertia block to recoil off-axis into a recess behind the weapon's magazine well. The theory is that at the end of travel, the energy from the bolt is transmitted downward rather than rearward, thus reducing felt recoil. When fired, the barrel axis is in line with the shoulder like with the M16 rifle, but also in line with the shooter's hand like is the case with many target pistols. This is intended to reduce muzzle climb when combined with the off-axis bolt travel, though it also greatly raises the height-over-bore of the sights. The initial prototype model by TDI achieved a rate of fire of 1,500 rounds per minute, though this was brought down to around 1,200 rounds per minute on the production models.
The Vector is split into two major assemblies in a manner similar to an AR-15 rifle, with the receivers secured together with four push pins. Due to the weapon's unusual layout, the lower receiver contains the action, charging handle, magazine well, and barrel, while the upper receiver houses the ejection port, rail system, pistol grip, and fire control components, as well as the stock for configurations that have one. This modular design allows for simple caliber conversions without the need for additional tools. All one would have to do is swap out the lower receiver for one in the desired caliber. The Vector's safety is ambidextrous (as is the fire selector on the full auto models), while the ejection port, charging handle, bolt release catch, and magazine release are not, and are only available in a right-handed configuration.
The original 'Gen I' model of the Vector would begin serial production in 2009, and was originally chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge. KRISS claims that the .45 ACP chambering was chosen in order to demonstrate that the Vector's action could "tame such a powerful round". Vectors chambered in .45 ACP are designed to accept standard Glock 21 pistol magazines. Although initially only offered in .45 ACP, additional potential caliber options such as .22 LR, .40 S&W, and 9×19mm Parabellum were mentioned when the gun was first released. In 2015, KRISS announced the upgraded 'Gen II' Vector. This new version featured a redesigned pistol grip and trigger, and the swing angle of the safety lever was reduced from 120 to 45 degrees. It also eliminated the opening above the barrel for the original weapon's optional Surefire weapon light, since these are no longer manufactured. Also introduced with the Gen II was a new lower receiver designed for 9x19mm Parabellum. Vectors chambered for 9mm are designed to utilize standard Glock 17 magazines. A version of the Vector chambered in .22LR would be announced five years later at SHOT Show 2020.
Gen I Vectors are no longer in production, with all current production from KRISS USA being of the updated Gen II pattern. Fully automatic Gen II Vector SMGs are available only to military and law enforcement agencies, with semi-automatic variants available for the civilian market. There are three main configurations available: the Vector CRB carbine (which features an extended 16 inch barrel), the Vector SBR, and the Vector SDP (special duty pistol). In addition to 9×19mm Parabellum and .45 ACP, these civilian models can also be chambered in .40 S&W (using Glock 22 magazines), 10mm Auto (using Glock 20 magazines), or .357 SIG (using Glock 31 magazines). A variant chambered for 9×21mm IMI that feeds from standard 9×19mm Glock 17 magazines is available for the Italian civilian market. The .22LR variant feeds from a proprietary 10 round magazine, and functions using a traditional straight blowback operating system rather than the Super V delayed system.
Vector's original artist, SA, shared comments on the design inspirations for Vector in the official Girls' Frontline art book:
"Upon seeing the Vector for the first time, I felt like that she should be a girl with silver hair. Personality should be the serious type, and she should also appear to be a bit cold. (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)".
"Since it is a modern weapon, her base costume doesn't look as suitable for combat as other T-doll's costumes(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)."
"The color scheme of her outfit was taken from the gun itself, and she was given a short skirt to match the short hair. The primary colors used for the outfit were black and creamy yellow, together with a clean white shirt. This was done to hopefully give people a sense of 'fresh' and 'cool' just from looking at her.(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)"
Vector is also one of the taller SMG T-dolls, with a total height exceeding 160cm. Although, her height seems to be reduced a lot in the art for her 'Kitty Paw' costume (to below 150cm) and increased in her wedding dress skin (to almost 2 metres). Regarding the abnormal body height in the wedding dress costume art, some players have suggested that it is the result of a common photography technique, where the bride is made to stand on a stool or box in order to better reveal the full length of the dress.
