|«|| The Type 115 is a modern multi weapon. It consists of two separate weapons combined into a single unit: a lower semi auto rifle chambered to fire .50 rounds and an upper automatic/semi auto rifle chambered in 6.5 mm. The gun can be modified with attachments to fulfill various roles in battle. Its versatility turns every soldier into a universal threat against both infantry and armored targets.|

The Type 115 is a selective-fire assault rifle that is primarily chambered to fire caseless 6.5×39 mm ammunition. It also has an underbarrel anti-materiel rifle module that is designed to fire specialised .50 BW rounds.
It loads from the same 30 round box magazines used by Mediterranean CSAT Katiba assault rifles, and can reach a fire rate of up to 895 rounds per minute with a muzzle velocity of 800 m/s. The Type 115 accepts accessories on all three of its rails; top, side, and underbarrel (located beneath the AMR module) and can mount attachments onto its muzzle as well.
The most unique feature of the Type 115 is its anti-materiel rifle module. Fed from 10 round box magazines, this component grants the operator the ability disable lightly armoured vehicles and possibly even damage exposed components on armoured vehicles (such as optics) with several well-placed shots.
Being the sole dual-role weapon of its kind, the Type 115 has no direct counterpart. While it is significantly less accurate than the SPAR series of assault rifles/DMRs used by CTRG forces, the Type 115 makes up for it by firing the more hard-hitting 6.5 mm round; not to mention having an underbarrel AMR as opposed to a single-shot grenade launcher.
However, it should be noted that the AMR module fires a distinctly separate kind of 12.7 mm round (as opposed to the 12.7×108 mm round used by the GM6 Lynx, for example) that has a far lower muzzle velocity of 580 m/s. This limits the range of the .50 BW round to roughly 1,000 metres or less, so while it is still highly effective against most ground targets at short-medium ranges, it cannot match the range or capability of dedicated sniper rifles.

- The Type 115 is completely fictional and has no direct real-world counterpart. However, the concept behind the design is strikingly similar to the real-life "QTS-11 Individual Integrated Combat System" (then-incorrectly known as the "ZH-05"). The QTS-11 is a prototype dual-role assault rifle based on the "QBZ-03" assault rifle that is currently being developed for use by regular and special forces units in the People's Liberation Army.
- Unlike the Type 115, the QTS-11 uses a single-shot bolt-action grenade launcher as opposed to a semi-automatic anti-materiel rifle.
- Other similar examples include the American-made (and cancelled) "XM29 Objective Individual Combat Weapon" prototype or the S&T Motiv "K11 DAW".
- Though it is completely fictional, the Type 115's name would be the correct nomenclature used to designate real firearms used by the PLA.
