Trivia Edit

  • The Katiba series are based on the real-world "KH-2002 Khaybar" bullpup assault rifle designed by the Iran-based Defense Industries Organization that has seen limited use with the Iranian Armed Forces.
  • On the other hand, the Katiba GL variant's underbarrel launcher appears to be based on the "ML40 mk2" grenade launcher designed by Madritsch Weapon Technology, an arms company based in Austria.
  • Despite clearly being modelled with non-double stacked STANAG magazines that would only be able to fit 20 rounds, the Katiba series are strangely capable of firing up to 30 rounds per magazine.
    • In addition, although they are stated to be chambered to fire caseless 6.5 mm ammunition, all variants have an ejection port.
  • During ArmA 3's pre-Alpha development phase, early media releases did not show either the Katiba or its sub-variants as the service weapon of Mediterranean CSAT forces. Instead, the TRG-21 assault rifle was (presumably) used as a temporary placeholder until the Katiba was added to the game.
