« The ASP-1 Kir is a special purpose weapon. This semi-automatic rifle is unique thanks to the built-in silencer and ammunition it uses. The special 12.7x54 mm subsonic round can penetrate heavy body armor at 100 m. Kir is a devastating weapon at short ranges but above 200 m it very quickly loses efficiency.

The ASP-1 Kir is a 12.7 mm special purpose marksman rifle used by Mediterranean CSAT forces in ArmA 3. It was added with the release of the Marksmen DLC.

Overview

The ASP-1 Kir is a semi-automatic, integrally-suppressed special sniper rifle chambered to fire the subsonic 12.7×54 mm round.

It loads from 10 round box magazines and can attain a fire rate of up to 600 rounds per minute, with a muzzle velocity of just 290 m/s. It accepts accessories on all three of its rails: top, side, underbarrel, but cannot be fitted with any muzzle attachments as it uses an integrated suppressor.

The ASP-1 is primarily used by CSAT recon teams for covert operations that require a discreet short-ranged marksman weapon. It is exceptionally powerful especially for a suppressed weapon, and can be used to take out even heavily armoured infantry in one to two shots (albeit at close ranges only). It is most effective when paired with the DMS optic, as it is the only scope that can be ranged down to 100 metres.

However, it should be noted that the ASP-1 is not a true DMR or sniper weapon. It should not be used to engage targets more than 150 metres away as the subsonic round's power drops-off very quickly the further it travels. In addition, the extremely wide trajectory of the round's ballistic model makes it almost impossible to attack long range targets with.

Trivia

  • The Kir is based on a combination of two real-world Russian weapons; both the "VKS" and "VSS Vintorez" sniper rifles.
    • The ballistics model of its 12.7 mm round is largely identical to the real "12.7×55mm STs-130" round used by the former, while the design of the stock and overall weapon layout are inspired by the latter.
  • Prior to its official release, the ASP-1 Kir was previously known as the "AKINA". Curiously enough, it was shown to be a NATO weapon before being changed to become a CSAT-exclusive weapon.
