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 5.45×39mm 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.

Insurgency[]


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 PDW and an CAR/SBR, 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[]

Insurgency

  • When optics are mounted on the AKS-74U, the scope view is much smaller than other weapons, due to the optic being mounted on a rail on the front sight 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.

Insurgency Sandstorm

  • The model present in the game is specifically the AKS-74UN, due to the side rail.
  • Whenever Picatinny optics are equipped, they are mounted to a Dovetail-to-Picatinny rail adapter instead of the previous game's front sight mount. This makes the sight picture much larger than the previous game, since the optics are now mounted closer to the player.
    • When the 1x OKP-7 is equipped to the weapon, it is the Picatinny version instead of the side-mounted version unlike on other AKs. This is true to real life, as the dovetail OKP-7 is incompatible to the AKS-74UN due to colliding with the front sight.
      • Despite this, the Picatinny rail that is added to the weapon when optics are mounted still clips into the front sight.
