The WAKS-74U (Russian: Автомат Калашникова Складной образца 1974 года Укороченный, Avtomat Kalashnikova Skladnoy obraztsa goda 1974 Ukorochenniy; English: Automatic Kalashnikov Folding model 1974 Shortened) is a Soviet carbine, developed in the late 1970s from the AKS-74 assault rifle (itself a folding-stock variant of the AK-74), firing the 5.45x39mm cartridge. The AKS-74U straddles the line between assault rifle and submachine gun, firing assault rifle ammunition with a severely abbreviated barrel which allows for maneuverability in restricted spaces, yet noticeably decreases both its accuracy and muzzle velocity.

The AKS-74U is a carbine featured in Insurgency. It is available to the Militant and Scout classes for 2 supply points.

The AKS-74U is a hybrid between a sub-machine gun and an assault rifle, allowing it to have the fire rate and size of a SMG, while retaining the cartridge of an assault rifle. This allows the weapon to be highly effective in close and medium range firefights. When combined with a foregrip, the recoil is greatly reduced, even less than some SMGs. When compared to the AK-74, the AKS-74U has greater horizontal recoil, but less vertical recoil, a shorter length for the AKS-74U, however, both weapons share the same damage model.

Trivia Edit

Insurgency

  • When optics are mounted on the AKS-74U, the scope view is much smaller than other weapons, due to the forward mounting position of optics on the AKS-74U.
  • The Dry Canal update gave the AKS-74U animation updates, the player now does an underhand bolt pull when dry reloading.
