The S11 Brooks automatic shotgun is a V.R.A. infantry weapon favoured by assault and commando teams. It is designed for maximum durability and reliability in a number of environments, and is known for its ability to withstand damage and weather conditions. It is the weapon of choice for heavy-engagement teams, especially in close quarters.
The S11 is designed to use a large drum magazine, from which ammunition is fed into the gun using a spring-based feeding system. The weapon uses a gas-operated system to eject empty shells and chamber the next round. The barrel is surrounded by focusing magnets, which cause the pellets to scatter more evenly. The weapon is capable of selective fire, fully automatic fire only being used when surrounded in close quarters. Recoil is a concern with this weapon, especially given the fire rate, which can easily spoil the user's aim.

The S11 was introduced in 13447 HSY, just a few years prior to the start of the First Zevestivan War. Since its introduction, it has not been widely distributed throughout the service. Rather, it is used exclusively by commando and assault teams, as well as Fox Division agents. Occasionally, it will be issued to main-line infantry in an urban environment, but this is not usually done due to the expense of manufacturing the weapon.
