Armed Assault Wiki

The M4A1, a 5.56 mm-chambered carbine in ArmA 2.

Carbines are essentially short-barrelled versions of assault rifles. They often fire the same ammunition as their full-length rifle counterparts but some may shoot lower-powered rounds, including types designed for pistols.

A drawback of their design is reduced muzzle velocity and range which, while still greater than that of submachine guns, often limits their effective firing range to just under 300-400 metres.
