* [[{{AKA47}} A.K.A.-47]] - the ARG-8 assault rifle is a low-maintenance Great Exodus-era firearm with built-in RagnarokProofing (yes, this includes ammunition). It's a reliable weapon that can function pretty much anywhere after centuries of laying around. It can be typically found in caches of colony ship supplies, since most of them date back to that era. It's pretty rare to find them anywhere else, since firearms have long since been replaced by MagneticWeapons. It does, however, offer several advantages over the more modern weapons, such as better penetration and complete immunity to any means of electronic jamming or hacking.

** Each portal is, basically, a primitive version of the hyperdrive used by humans, consisting of two generators: a low-frequency generator to "submerge" objects into hypersphere, and a high-frequency generator for "surfacing". These races just never developed a portable version of the generators. On the other hand, humans went straight for hyperdrives and never developed portals.

* HumongousMecha - nearly ''every single novel'' features battles involving "serv-machines" - 20-60 metric tons of death on legs piloted by a human and/or an AI, depending on the model. After the end of the Galactic Wars, the basic designs settled on three models: the 60-ton (metric) Phalanxer, equipped with long-range missiles and rocket-propelled artillery but poorly suited for close-range fighting due to low maneuverability, although the missile racks can be discarded after firing to lighten the load; the 40-ton Raven, a rare medium variant used either in pair with one of the other models or independently; and the 20-ton Hoplite, a light (for a HumongousMecha) and maneuverable variant equipped with close-range weaponry, usually to protect its big brother the Phalanxer but often used as a scout and/or spotter.

''Expansion: The History of the Galaxy'' ("Экспансия: История галактики") is a [[LongRunningBookSeries long-running Russian science fiction book series]] written by Creator/AndreyLivadny.
