« A bullpup style assault rifle used by CSAT Pacific forces. It works as a common platform for different weapon types: a standard rifle, GL variant with attached grenade launcher, and a light support version with a longer barrel and drum magazine. The CAR-95 uses polymer materials in its construction and fires 5.8×42 mm small-caliber, high-velocity bullets.

The CAR-95 series are a family of bullpup weapons used by both Pacific and North African CSAT forces. It was added with the release of the Apex DLC.

Trivia Edit

  • The CAR-95 family is based on the "QBZ-95" series of bullpup assault rifles designed by the China North Industries Corporation (NORINCO) for use by the People's Liberation Army.
    • More specifically, the baseline CAR-95 appears to be based on the "T97NSR-A". The T97 is a modified variant that was designed exclusively for export sales and is chambered to fire 5.56 mm NATO ammunition instead.
    • While proprietary prototype variants of the QBZ-95 with integrated flat top rails do exist, none are officially in service with the Chinese military (as of 2018).
  • The underbarrel grenade launcher is based on the "QLG-10A" grenade launcher that can often be found mounted to real-life QBZ-95s.
    • Unlike its real-life version (which uses non-NATO standard 35 mm grenades instead) it fires the same 40 mm grenades that are universally shared across all of the factions.
  • The CAR-95-1 is based on the "QBB-95-1", a modified variant of the baseline QBZ-95 that was designed to be a squad automatic weapon.
  • Despite being portrayed as the service weapons of Pacific CSAT forces, the CAR-95 series (along with the CMR-76) use the wrong naming nomenclature, even though other weapons like the Type 115 are designated correctly.
    • The correct designation for the CAR-95 series would actually be Type 95-2; the -2 suffix would be to designate that it is a further modernised and improved variant of the existing QBZ-95-1.
  • Prior to the release of the Tac-Ops DLC, the CAR-95 family was only utilised by Pacific CSAT forces. This was changed with the DLC's second mini-campaign, Stepping Stone, which showed the weapon being used by North African CSAT units as well.
    • This is likely a reference to the real-world Sudanese Armed Forces, which chose a derivative of NORINCO's QBZ-95 as the service rifle for their "Kombo Future Soldier" program in 2014.
