The M8 is the AcDragonian military designation for a lightweight combat rifle system under development by the AcDragonian Army beginning in the early 2620's. The rifle is designed by Corsari small arms manufacturer Rheinmetall Höchste Dynamik (RHD), and shares design and engineering with their G72 rifle.

The M8 design was originally part of the Future Warfare Armaments program (FWA), which was established to move the AcDragonian military from severely outdated weapons circa Industrial Age Terran design to modern battlefield capability. After several different designs were tested, eventually the top brass in the AcDragonian military settled on the Corsari M8 rifle. The weapon is now in service with the AcDragonian military and it is extremely popular with private military companies.
