The AKS is a 7.62 mm assault rifle used by BLUFOR, OPFOR and Independent factions in ArmA 2.

Overview

The AKS is simply a modified variant of the AKM assault rifle that uses a folding stock as opposed to a fixed wooden stock. The AKS is chambered to fire the same 7.62×39 mm round as its parent weapon.

Like the AKM, it loads from 30-round curved steel magazines and has the same rate of fire and muzzle velocity.

However aside from the stock - which doesn't actually affect its handling or carrying weight, it is otherwise completely identical to the baseline AKM in every other aspect.

Camouflage

  • Black
  • Gold
  • Black: Standard black metal finish with wooden furniture.
  • Gold: Gold-plated metal finish with chromed wood furniture.

The AKS can load two types of magazines. They both take up one inventory slot:

AKM Mag.

Arma2-ammunition-30rndakm

Standard 7.62 mm curved magazine shared with the AKM. Does not contain any visible tracers.

SA58 Mag.

Arma2-ammunition-30rndsa58

Intended for use with the Sa-58 rifle. Completely identical performance-wise to regular AKS/AKM magazines.

Trivia

  • Just like Colonel Aziz's gold-plated .45 revolver in Operation Arrowhead, the AKS is also available in a separate variant that is exclusively wielded by Lopotev himself.
    • However, Lopotev's golden-plated AKS does not have the folding stock seen on standard AKS rifles.
