« Rook-40 is a double action, short recoil operated, locked breech pistol. Its steel construction makes it a bit retro, but compared to contemporary lightweight polymer pistols, it feels sturdier. It fires 9x21 mm ammunition and comes with tritium-filled night sights.

The Rook-40 9 mm handgun.

The Rook-40 is a 9 mm handgun used by several OPFOR factions in ArmA 3.

Overview

The Rook-40 is a double-action semi-automatic handgun chambered to fire the 9×21 mm round.

It can load from either 16- or 30-round magazines (the latter also shared by SMGs such as the PDW2000) and is able to attain a rate of fire of up to 600 rounds per minute, with a muzzle velocity of 450 m/s. The Rook-40 does not support any being fitted with any accessories but can have attachments mounted onto its muzzle.

With a high base ROF, the Rook-40 makes for a fairly useful backup weapon in close quarters.

Compared to its NATO counterpart, the Rook-40 weighs the same, has virtually identical recoil, is similarly compact, and also fires the same 9 mm round.

But unlike the P07 it has a higher fire rate which, when combined with a 30 round magazine, can essentially turn the Rook-40 into a PDW that completely outclasses the former in close quarters. In fact, the sole advantage that the P07 has over the Rook-40 is that it's slightly better in terms of accuracy when engaging targets at distances of up to 35 metres or more.

However, because both weapons are still limited to an effective range of just under 50 metres this accuracy advantage is negligible at best. As such, the Rook-40 still remains as the better sidearm out of the two.

Ammunition

NOTE: Rounds fired from 30-round magazines specifically (shared with the PDW2000) have a lower initial velocity of 370 m/s instead.

Rook-40s can be loaded with either 16- or 30-round magazines. The former only weigh a total "mass" of 6 units, while the 30-rounders weigh 10 units instead:

9 mm 16Rnd Mag

Standard 16-round pistol magazine. Does not contain any visible tracers.

9 mm 16Rnd Reload Tracer (Red) Mag

Arma3-ammunition-16rndp07.png

Identical to regular 16-round magazines, but the last four rounds will always consist of visible red tracers.

Remains identical in all other aspects.

9 mm 16Rnd Reload Tracer (Green) Mag

Arma3-ammunition-16rndp07.png

Similar to regular magazines, but the last four rounds will always be green tracers.

9 mm 16Rnd Reload Tracer (Yellow) Mag

Arma3-ammunition-16rndp07.png

Similar to regular magazines, but the last four rounds will always be yellow tracers.

9 mm 30Rnd Mag

Arma3-ammunition-30rndvermin.png

30-round extended magazine. Does not contain any visible tracers.

It should be noted that rounds fired from this magazine specifically have decreased velocities of 370 m/s instead (rather than 410 m/s).

9 mm 30Rnd Reload Tracer (Red) Mag

Identical to 30-round magazines, but the last four rounds will always consist of visible red tracers.

Remains identical in all other aspects.

9 mm 30Rnd Reload Tracer (Green) Mag

Trivia

  • The Rook-40 is based on the real-world "MP-443 Grach" (also known as the "PYa") handgun designed by Kalashnikov Concern for use as the standard-issue sidearm of the Russian military.
    • Unlike the MP-443 however, the in-game Rook-40 is chambered to fire ArmA 3's ubiquitous 9×21 mm round as opposed to 9×19 mm 7N21 ammunition used by its real-world counterpart.
  • The Rook-40 was originally restricted to loading regular 16-round magazines. The release of the free Nexus Update would later allow Rook-40s to load the same 30-round magazines used by the PDW2000 (despite the fact that the model's magwell would clearly be unable to fit such magazines).
