« The Mk20 is a gas-operated rotating bolt, selective-fire weapon, which was designed as a highly moddable weapon. Its design and front ejection system allows true ambidextrous use. Two other variants of Mk20 exist. The Mk20C comes with a shorter barrel suitable for close combat and the Mk20 EGLM comes with an enhanced grenade launching module.

The Mk20C is a 5.56 mm bullpup carbine used by the AAF in ArmA 3.

Overview Edit

The Mk20C is a carbine variant of the baseline Mk20 assault rifle. Along with its parent counterpart, it is also chambered to fire the same 5.56×45 mm NATO round.

It loads from 30 round STANAG magazines and is completely identical performance-wise aside from having a lower muzzle velocity of 820 m/s instead. The Mk20C has the same ability to mount accessories on its top and side rails, and can be fitted with muzzle attachments.

Unlike the baseline Mk20, the Mk20C has a lower muzzle velocity and is slightly worse accuracy-wise. But because of its compact size and negligible inertia penalty, the Mk20C is easier to wield in confined spaces compared to its full-length barrelled parent, which allows it to be comfortably carried inside vehicles. It is for this reason that it's exclusively used by AAF vehicle and helicopter crews along with non-combat support troopers.

However, unlike its FIA counterpart the Mk20C does not retain the same degree of accuracy as its baseline model. This results in it being considerably worse off when it comes to engaging targets that are beyond short-ranged distances, which essentially restricts the Mk20C's effective range to just ~290 metres and less.

Camouflage Edit

  • Camo: Digitised semi-fractal camouflage pattern. Standard finish used by all AAF Mk20Cs.
  • Sand: Desert sand paint finish.

Trivia Edit

  • The Mk20C is directly based on the "F2000" series of bullpup assault rifles designed by FN Herstal of Belgium. The only difference is that it uses a short barrel similar to the civilian variant of the F2000 instead (designated as the "FS2000").
