« The ADR-97 is a lightweight, highly maneuverable firearm with a high rate of fire, which stands out due to the 50-round magazine positioned on top of the weapon. The basic weapon comes with inbuilt collimator sights, but some variants can also be fitted with custom optics.

The ADR-97 is a 5.7 mm submachine gun used by NATO and CSAT forces, along with the AAF in ArmA 3. It is only available to subscribers of the ADR-97 Weapon Pack official addon released on the Steam Workshop.

Overview Edit

The ADR-97 is a personal defense weapon that uses a straight blowback operation and is chambered to fire the 5.7×28 mm round.

It loads from 50 round plastic box magazines and can attain a rate of fire of roughly 899-900 rounds per minute, with a muzzle velocity of 780 m/s. It does not support being mounted with optical sights or side rail accessories, though it has an integrated reflex sight and can have attachments fitted onto its muzzle.

Largely constructed out of polymer, the ADR-97 is a rather unique weapon compared to all of the other SMGs in its class. It has the largest magazine size of all, a very good rate of fire (though not as high as the CSAT Sting), has manageable recoil even when firing on full auto, and can be used for both short and medium ranged engagements.

Its compact design also makes it easy to wield in close quarters. In fact, it has almost no downsides aside from its inability to mount accessories and its weight; even then the heaviest variant weighs the same as the Sting, while the lightest variants are comparable to NATO's Vermin. Overall, it is a flexible multi-role weapon that is suitable for use by both vehicle crews and combat troops alike.

Camouflage Edit

  • Khaki: Light khaki paint finish.
  • Camo: Digitised semi-fractal camouflage pattern. Used by AAF ADR-97s.
  • Hex: Light/dark grey cell pattern camouflage. Used on CSAT ADR-97s.

The ADR-97C is a compact variant of the baseline ADR-97 SMG.

The only differences with this variant is that it has a lower muzzle velocity of 715 m/s and is less accurate due to using a shorter barrel. It is otherwise identical to its parent counterpart in all other aspects.

ADR-97 TR Edit

The ADR-97 TR is a modified variant of the baseline ADR-97 SMG.

While it has virtually identical performance to its parent counterpart, this variant eschews the built-in reflex sight in favour of having top and side rails. This means that the ADR-97 TR can be fitted with optics and other accessories, though consequently it no longer has any iron sights that can be used to aim if it is not fitted with an optical sight.

The ADR-97C TR is a modified variant of the baseline ADR-97C SMG. Just like the conventional ADR-97C model, this variant almost identical to it in terms of performance (shorter barrel, lower muzzle velocity, higher dispersion).

But similar to the ADR-97 TR variant, this model removes the built-in reflex sight in favour of having top and side rails. While this means that it no longer has an iron sight for aiming, it is able to mount optical sights onto its top rail and be fitted with accessories like laser sights onto its side rail.

Trivia Edit

  • The ADR-97 variants with full length barrels are based on the civilian semi-automatic models of the real-world "PS90" and "PS90 TR" submachine guns designed by FN Herstal of Belgium.
    • The compact barrel variants on the other hand, are based on the military/law enforcement models of the baseline "P90" and "P90 TR" SMGs.
  • Oddly enough, the reloading animation depicts the operator pulling a motionless charging handle while the left hand moves towards the top of the optical sight group instead.
  • It should be noted that the ADR-97 is not available in ArmA 3 by default, nor is it considered as a premium DLC weapon. It can only be obtained through subscribing to it on the Steam Workshop as an external (albeit officially supported) addon that needs to be downloaded before becoming usable in-game.
