« The ISh-54 is a Soviet 12 gauge double-barreled shotgun. The ISh-54 was manufactured from 1954 to 1969. The long barrels can be sawn-off and used as an ambush weapon with a special powder mix for more effective close-quarters fighting. Additionally the butt can be sawn off enabling it to be concealed and used as a sidearm. If both triggers are pulled at once, both barrels are fired making it even more devastating.

The ISh-54 12 Gauge shotgun.

The ISh-54 is a 12G shotgun used by Viet Cong guerillas and in limited numbers with PAVN forces in ArmA 3. It was added with the release of the S.O.G. Prairie Fire Creator DLC.

Overview

This section is a stub. You can help Armed Assault Wiki by expanding it.

The ISh-54 is a break-action shotgun that is designed to fire 12 Gauge shotshells.

It can only load two buckshot-type shotshells at a time, and has a maximum fire rate of 120 rounds per minute with a muzzle velocity of 300 m/s. The ISh-54 cannot be fitted with an optical sight, nor is it possible to mount a bayonet.

The ISh-54 (Sawn-off) 12 Gauge shotgun.

The Sawn-off variant features a barrel that has been cut down in length.

It is lighter by 20 "mass", and inertia penalties compared to the baseline ISh-54 have been lowered. Likewise, the user's dexterity is also higher as a result, allowing it to be wielded more easily in close quarters.

However, a consequence of its shortened barrel is a sharp reduction in accuracy. Dispersion on this model specifically is increased by ~ 33%, and recoil is also slightly higher (though not by a significant margin).

The ISh-54 (Sidearm) 12 Gauge shotgun.

The Sidearm variant has had its stock sawed off completely and shares the same shortened barrel of the Sawn-off model.

Unlike the other two ISh-54s, the Sidearm variant is equipped as a sidearm and does not occupy the user's primary weapon slot.

This allows the user to carry an alternate long arm of their choice without having to haul a backpack. It is also the lightest of the three and can also be stored within a vest provided that it has sufficient capacity to do so.

As with the Sawn-off variant however, the Sidearm model suffers a further reduction in accuracy due to its cut barrel, and its recoil is even greater due to the stock's omission.

Ammunition

Round type Base damage value Aerodynamic friction Initial velocity (m/s) Penetration depth (mm)

12 Gauge Buckshot (Sawn-off) 8 -0.0067 442 6.63

The full-length ISh-54 is restricted to loading only one type of "magazine". The Sawn-off and Sidearm models on the other hand, retain the option of loading two types of "magazines".

No matter the variant, both have identical "mass" values of 6 units:

2Rnd. ISh-54 Reload (Buckshot)

Buckshot-based shotshell.

Up to twelve pellets will be dispersed within a 0.5 degree cone using Poisson disc sampling.

2Rnd. ISh-54 Sawn-off (Buckshot)

Arma3-ammunition-sogpf2ndish54buckshot.png

Alternate buckshot "magazine" intended for use on the Sidearm and Sawn-off variants.

In contrast to regular "magazines", its twelve pellets are scattered within a much wider 3 degree cone (its pattern is also arranged via Poisson disc sampling).

Trivia

  • The ISh-54 is unique for being the first shotgun-type weapon in the series that features a sub-variant that is treated as a sidearm instead of being a primary or underbarrel weapon (albeit in a semi-official capacity only).
  • Following Update 1.1's release, the ISh-54's firepower was reduced as its buckshot "magazine" no longer scatters up to fifty pellets at a time.
    • This includes the Sawn-off version's "magazine", which has been drastically cut down from its original one hundred pellets to just twelve.
