  ARMA 2 Weaponry : Hand Guns and Machine Guns Screenshots    
Telejunky has informed us about the release of 2 new sets of weapons pictures : Handguns and Machine Guns on the ArmA2 official site.


Pistols serve mainly as defensive weapons, but silenced variants may provide a tactical advantage in attack.


The 1911 (or M1911A1) is a single-action self-loading pistol. It was the standard side arm weapon used by the US army from 1911 to 1985; and it was widely used by US troops in WW I, WW II and both Korean and Vietnam wars. The 1911 is designed to use .45 ACP rounds. Even today many SWAT teams - as well as many other armies - favour this weapon thanks to the great stopping power of .45 rounds.


Based on the 92FS and adopted by US Military as the M9 pistol, this is the standard US Army handgun. In 1985 the M9 replaced the older .45 Colt 1911 which had been in service since World War I. This gun features a 15 round magazine and standard NATO 9mm ammunition. Some soldiers however, still prefer the .45 Colt due to its greater stopping power.

M9 - M9 - Silenced


In use for nearly forty years the venerable PM Makarov served the Soviet Red Army and now serves the Russian Federation Armed Forces. Renowned for its simple and extremely reliable design, the Makarov can be found in abundance across the globe. Although the small, 8-round capacity is low by present-day standards, it gives the pistol a narrow profile. Equipped with a suppressor the silenced Makarov PM is an ideal weapon for special forces and assassins.

Machineguns are effective against enemy troops and light vehicles; they are perfect for suppressing the enemy due to their fire rate and ammo capacity. Machineguns are heavy and prevent soldiers from carrying man-portable launchers.


The M240 is a belt-fed, gas-operated machine gun. This weapon is used extensively by US armed forces infantry, mounted on ground vehicles, boats and aircraft. It is highly prized for its reliability, good rate of fire, impact and durability. The M240 uses 7.62x51 mm ammunition.

M249 SAW

The M249 Squad Automatic Weapon is a fully-automatic, gas-operated, magazine or belt-fed individual weapon. It is the standard US Army light machine gun based on the Belgian FN Minimi, featuring a 200 round plastic magazine box. The bipod can be collapsed and the weapon can be fired from the hands. The M249 SAW provides the squad with the accurate and sustained fire required to suppress and destroy enemy targets.

Mk 48 Mod 0

The Mk 48 Mod 0 is in fact a modified M240 machine gun, developed for USSOCOM special operation units. In comparison to the M249 this weapon features an improved rail mounting system and integral folding bipod. The Mk 48 is significantly lighter than the M240 while offering better firepower than the M249 SAW. The Mk 48 uses 7.62x51 mm ammunition.


The PKM is the modernized version of the venerable PK medium machine gun. The PKM is just small enough to be man portable and an ammo box attached under the receiver means the gunner always has a full 100-round belt ready to fire. Though it is a heavy weapon to carry the firepower it projects on the battlefield makes it worth the trouble. The PKM can provide sustainable suppressive fire, even at very long ranges.


The RPK-74 is a light machine gun, first presented in 1974. It is a modernized variant of the AK-74 rifle and the modifications implemented mirror those made to the AKM. The RPK-74 uses 5.45x39 mm cartridges.

  ARMA 2 Weaponry : Assault Rifles Screenshots    
A new page of infos has been released on the official ArmA2 web site, today a full display of ArmA2 assault rifles.

An assault rifle is a selective fire rifle or carbine firing ammunition with muzzle energies intermediate between those typical of pistol and battle rifle ammunition.


The AK-107 is a Russian 5.45 mm assault rifle developed from the AK-100 series. The AK-107 features a unique "balance" operating system. This system uses a recoil-dampening countermeasure mechanism that eliminates recoil, thus highly increasing accuracy and assisting control while using automatic fire.

* Variants: AK-107, AK-107 GP-25, AK107 GP-25 PSO, AK-107 PSO


The AK-74 is the successor to the infamous AK-47, resizing its caliber to 5.45mm, probably in response to the ubiquity of the 5.56mm NATO round. The most visible modification is the muzzle brake. This muzzle brake drastically cuts the already mild recoil of the AK-74 but increases noise and muzzle flash.

AK-74_GP-25s - AK-74UN Kobra

* Variants: AK-74, AK-74 + GP-25, AKS-74 Kobra, AKS-74U, AKS-74UN Kobra


The AKM is an upgraded version of the infamous AK-47 rifle developed in the 1950s. AKM is the most wide-spread variant of entire AK series. Compared to the AK-47, the AKM is more highly optimized for mass production. As the result the weight is reduced by 1kg, accuracy is significantly higher and the reliability is greatly increased. The AKS is slightly modified version of the AK-47 rifle. It features a downward-folding metal stock to adapt this weapon for use in vehicles and for paratroops.


M16A2, M16A4

The M16 assault rifle entered service in 1965 at the onset of the Vietnam War. It answered the Army's need to replace the ill-suited M14 with a lightweight rifle capable of effective automatic fire. The M16 uses a small, high velocity round with low recoil and good armor penetration, effective to about 500m.

M16 A2 - M16A4 M203 RCO

* Variants: M16A2, M16A2 + M203, M16A4, M16A4 RCO, M16A4 M203, M16A4 M203 RCO


The M4A1 Carbine is a shortened version of M16. It sports a shortened barrel and collapsible stock, making it the Special Operations weapon of choice. In contrast to the M16A2, with its 3-round burst mode, the M4A1 is capable of fully automatic fire. Thanks to the SOPMOD program the M4A1 can be modified with a variety of special accessories including optics such as the M68 Aimpoint and ACOG, an easily detachable suppressor, the M203 under barrel grenade launcher, and many others.

M4A1 CCO - M4A1 M203 Holo

* Variants: M4A1, M4A1 QDS, M4A1 QDS CAMO, M4A1 M203 RCO, M4A1 CCO, M4A1 M203 Holo SD, M4A1 M203 Holo, M4A1 M203 SOPMOD SD CAMO


The G36 is 5.56mm assault rifle, manufactured by Heckler & Koch GmbH in Germany. This weapon is used in German Armed Forces from the year 1997; and these dayes, many armies used this weapon. The rifle features dual sights: a 3.5X scope sight beneath, and a 1X red-dot sight above.

G36C SD - G36K

* Variants: G36, G36C, G36C-SD, G36K


The XM8 was the US Army project name for new lightweight assault rifle system. US Army hoped to create new standard and highly modifiable infantry rifle but in 2005, the project was formally cancelled. ~7500 prototypes of this weapon still exist, now held by the US Army. The weapon was designed to use 5.56x45mm NATO cartridges and is able to fire up to 750 rounds per minute.

XM8 M320 - XM8 Compact

* Variants: XM8, XM8 M320, XM8 Compact, XM8 Marksman, XM8 SAW

  Facts about NAPA revealed ! + Video added Official    

Facts about the "National Party" faction have been revealed on the ArmA2 official web site.

Nationalist guerillas of the National Party is an underground movement lacking sophisticated weapons, but their knowledge of the country, military expertise from civil war and underground network make them serious opponents to both communist guerillas and government forces.

- Guerillas use a mixture of civilian and military clothing and light equipment; anti-tank weapons are rare and consist mostly of RPG-7 stolen from Chernarussian military. Occasionally, better weapons purchased from weapons dealers are in use.
- They commonly use balaclavas, ski masks or bandanas to cover their faces to avoid identification.
- Favorite weapons are the old and reliable AK-47; many local guerillas also use hunting rifles. Important part of NAPA arsenal are also various IEDs, RPG-7 anti-tank launchers or home-made explosives.
- Guerillas use mostly hit-and-run tactics; they disappear soon after they strike.
- Heavy equipment is usually makeshift originals, stored in safe houses and forest camps deep in the mountains.

We have to show common citizens that our actions are focused on rooting out the evil, not on punishing anyone based on their nationality. Disarm the ordinary armed men, but eliminate all commissars, commanders and functionaries ruthlessly.
