« The SKS is a Russian 7.62x39mm caliber semi-automatic carbine, designed in 1945. It is fed by a 10-round stripper clip, and can mount a 3.5x PU telescopic sight, a 22mm grenade adapter and a folding bayonet. The SKS carbine was replaced by the AK-47, but remained in service for rear units, and saw wide use in the Vietnam War.

The SKS 7.62 mm carbine.

The SKS is a 7.62 mm carbine used by both the PAVN and Viet Cong guerillas 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 SKS is a self-loading semi-automatic carbine that is chambered to fire the 7.62×39 mm round. It uses a short stroke gas piston and a tilting bolt.

It loads exclusively from 10-round stripper clips, and can reach fire rates of up to 600 rounds per minute with a muzzle velocity of 735 m/s.

The SKS is able to mount a magnified telescopic sight (interchangeable with the M91/30) that has a zoom of 3.5x. Sound suppressors cannot be fitted onto the muzzle, though a bayonet spike can be attached onto the barrel.

The SKS (GL) 7.62 mm carbine.

The GL variant has a slightly extended barrel that is fitted with a muzzle adapter capable of loading and firing 22 mm rifle grenades.

It features a ladder sight which can be adjusted between three preset ranges: 50 metres, 75 metres and 100 metres.

The types of loadable rifle grenades range from lethal fragmentation, high-explosive anti-tank (HEAT), and white phosphorous (WP) grenades, less-than-lethal riot dispersal CS gas rounds, and non-lethal smoke/illumination rounds.

However, it should be noted that the GL variant is heavier than unmodified SKS carbines and is no longer able to mount its telescopic sight or bayonet spike.

Ammunition

NOTE: Figures for less-than-lethal/non-lethal smoke, illumination and riot dispersal gas grenade munitions are deliberately excluded from this section.

The SKS is capable of loading two types of "magazines". Variants fitted with a muzzle adapter will be able to mount rifle grenades that use explosive, non-lethal, or less-than-lethal (LTL) fillings:

10Rnd. SKS Clip

Arma3-ammunition-sogpf10rndsks.png

10-round stripper clip loaded with 7.62 mm ball ammunition. Has a weight of 4 "mass" units.

Every fourth round fired will be a visible tracer. Only the last four rounds of the clip will consist solely of tracers.

10Rnd. SKS Clip (Tracer)

Arma3-ammunition-sogpf10rndsks.png

Tracer clip.

Aside from all ten rounds of the clip comprising entirely of visible tracer rounds, the clip remains statistically identical to regular clips.

M60 22 mm FRAG

Arma3-ammunition-sogpf22mmm60frag.png

22 mm rifle grenade fitted with a fragmentation warhead. It has a weight of 4 "mass" units.

It has a timed fuse that will detonate 4.7 seconds after the grenade is fired. The warhead has a minimum fuse distance of 6 metres and a blast radius of 8 metres.

M60 22 mm HEAT

Arma3-ammunition-sogpf22mmm60heat.png

22 mm rifle grenade that uses a high-explosive anti-tank (HEAT) warhead. It has a weight of 8 "mass".

The HEAT grenade's damage output is significantly greater than that of M60 FRAGs but has much smaller blast radius of 2 metres. The M60 FRAG utilises an impact-based fuse and has a minimum arming range of 6 metres.

M19 22 mm WP

Arma3-ammunition-sogpf22mmm19wp.png

22 mm rifle grenade with a white phosphorous (WP) filling and an impact-based fuse. It weighs a "mass" of 8 and has a minimum fuse distance of 6 metres.

The explosive component of the warhead can potentially inflict lethal damage if a direct hit is scored on the target. The rest of the warhead (its WP contents) will instantly ignite and burn any organic targets within the 8 metre blast radius.
