Assault rifles[edit | edit source]

Article: Assault rifles

Assault rifles are selective-fire rifles that use an intermediate cartridge and a detachable magazine. They are extremely efficient and are best used from medium to long ranges.

Improvements include enhanced accuracy range, less weight, new stock, modified trigger assembly, and a slant cut muzzle brake. The Soviet Army adopted the AKM as the standard service rifle in 1959 and was later adopted by numerous Soviet-affiliated countries.

This variant is able to have a side mount for dovetail optics, unlike its parent. Everything else works the same thing as its parent.

The "Val" can shoot subsonic rounds, thus not making a loud sound, making it silent, yet deadly. The rifle is in limited use, mainly by Russian special forces, due to the fact that it is expensive to produce and use.

Assault carbines[edit | edit source]

Article: Assault carbines

A carbine is a rifle but has a shorter barrel than regular-size rifles. This helps them to be easier to handle. What differentiates assault carbines and carbines under the semi-automatic rifles category are that assault carbines are both selective-fire and use detachable magazines.

After noticing the XM-177 carbine used by the United States Army, the Soviets launched a competition for a new carbine. Mikhail Kalashnikov, the infamous designer of his Kalashnikov rifle series, won the competition with his AKS-74U. Meant to bridge the gaps between an assault rifle and a submachine gun, the AKS-74U was used by both the military and police force of the Soviet Union and later Russia to this day.
