The AKS is a 7.62 mm assault rifle that is used by CDF militia, ChDKZ insurgents, NAPA guerrillas, as well as by Takistani pro-government militia and anti-government groups in ArmA 2.

Overview Edit

The AKS is simply a modified variant of the AKM assault rifle that uses a folding stock as opposed to a fixed wooden stock. The AKS is chambered to fire the same 7.62×39 mm cartridge as its parent.

Like the AKM, it loads from 30 round curved steel magazines and has the same rate of fire and muzzle velocity. Aside from the stock (which doesn't actually affect its handling or carrying weight) it is otherwise completely identical to the baseline AKM in every other aspect.

Camouflage Edit

  • Black: Standard black metal finish with wooden furniture.
  • Gold: Gold-plated metal finish with chromed wood furniture.

Trivia Edit

  • Just like Colonel Aziz's gold-plated .45 revolver in Operation Arrowhead, the AKS is also available in a separate variant that is exclusively wielded by Lopotev himself.
    • However, Lopotev's golden-plated AKS does not have the folding stock seen on standard AKS rifles.
