« The Type 115 is a modern multi weapon. It consists of two separate weapons combined into a single unit: a lower semi auto rifle chambered to fire .50 rounds and an upper automatic/semi auto rifle chambered in 6.5 mm. The gun can be modified with attachments to fulfill various roles in battle. Its versatility turns every soldier into a universal threat against both infantry and armored targets.

The Type 115 6.5 mm bullpup assault rifle.

The Type 115 is a 6.5 mm dual-role bullpup assault rifle used exclusively by Viper operatives in ArmA 3. It was added with the release of the Apex DLC.

Overview

This is a premium asset that requires ownership of the Apex expansion pack.


The Type 115 is a selective-fire assault rifle that is primarily chambered to fire caseless 6.5×39 mm ammunition. It also has an underbarrel anti-materiel rifle module that is designed to fire specialised .50 BW rounds.

It loads from the same 30-round box magazines used by Katiba bullpups, and can reach a fire rate of up to 895 rounds per minute with a muzzle velocity of 800 m/s. The Type 115 accepts accessories on all three of its rails; top, side and underbarrel (located beneath the AMR module) and can also mount attachments onto its muzzle.

Exclusive to Viper Team, the Type 115 represents the epitome in CSAT small arms.

The most unique feature of the Type 115 is its anti-materiel rifle module. Fed from 10-round box magazines, this component grants the operator the ability to disable lightly armoured vehicles and possibly even damage exposed components on armoured vehicles (such as optics) with several well-placed shots.

Being the sole dual-role weapon of its kind, the Type 115 has no direct counterpart. While it is significantly less accurate than the SPAR family of assault rifles, the Type 115 makes up for it by firing the more hard-hitting 6.5 mm round.

In addition, the underbarrel AMR's ammunition can outright kill armoured infantry even with an indirect hit. This is in stark contrast to the SPAR's single-shot grenade launcher, which isn't consistently able to take out its targets - especially if they happen to be wearing explosive resistant body armour vests.

However, it should be noted that the AMR module fires a distinctly separate kind of 12.7 mm round (.50 BW) as opposed to the 12.7×108 mm cartridge used by, for instance, the GM6 sniper rifle. It has a much lower muzzle velocity of only 580 m/s, limiting the AMR module's range to roughly 1,000 metres or less.

Though it remains highly effective against most ground targets at short-medium distances, it cannot match the range or capability of dedicated sniper rifles.

The rifle component of the Type 115 supports two types of magazines, while the underbarrel AMR module can load only one type specifically designed for use with it:

6.5 mm 30Rnd Caseless Mag

Arma3-ammunition-30rndkatibaball.png

Standard caseless 6.5 mm ammunition. Weighs at a "mass" of 10 units.

The last four rounds of the magazine always consist of visible green tracers.

6.5 mm 30Rnd Tracer (Green) Caseless Mag

Arma3-ammunition-30rndkatibatracer.png

30 rounds worth of visible green tracers. Weighs the same as the regular magazine with a "mass" of 10 units.

.50 BW 10Rnd Caseless Mag

Loaded with caseless armour-piercing rounds. Has a "mass" of 12 units.

Does not contain any rounds with visible tracers.

Trivia

  • The Type 115 is completely fictional and has no direct real-world counterpart. However, the concept behind the design is strikingly similar to the real-life "QTS-11 Individual Integrated Combat System" (then-incorrectly known as the "ZH-05"). The QTS-11 is a prototype dual-role assault rifle based on the "QBZ-03" assault rifle that is currently being developed for use by regular and special forces units in the People's Liberation Army.
    • Unlike the Type 115, the QTS-11 uses a single-shot bolt-action grenade launcher as opposed to a semi-automatic anti-materiel rifle.
    • Other similar examples include the American-made (and cancelled) "XM29 Objective Individual Combat Weapon" prototype or the S&T Motiv "K11 DAW".
  • Although it uses a proper format, the Type 115's name would still be the incorrect nomenclature for designating firearms commissioned for service with the PLA (only two digits are used for small arms).
    • A semantically correct designation would be either Type 15 or Type XX, with "XX" being replaced with the last two digits of the weapon's production year.
    • Oddly enough, neither the CAR-95 series or the CMR-76 utilise the same nomenclature as the Type 115 - despite the fact that they are portrayed as the service weapons of Pacific CSAT forces.
