There's a note in the PDF manual about an expanded manual on the CD. Was there additional documentation that GOG didn't include? It seems like the kind of game that would have had a long section explaining how the various weapons differ, and so on.
i'm fairly certain that their was a much larger manual, from my memories there was a set of weapon descriptions for all weapons, we just didn't get the proper manual. -.-
