The WSKS (Russian: Самозарядный карабин системы Симонова, Samozaryadniy Karabin sistemy Simonova; English: Self-loading Carbine of [the] Simonov system) or the SKS-45 as its complete designation is known as, is a Soviet semi-automatic carbine chambered for the 7.62×39mm round, designed in 1943 by Sergei Gavrilovich Simonov. In the early 1950s, the Soviets took the SKS carbine out of front-line service and replaced it with the AK-47; however, the SKS remained in second-line service for decades.

The original SKS utilized an integral magazine, fed primarily by stripper clips. However, companies such as Norinco have made versions of the rifle with detachable box magazines, known as the SKS-D and SKS-M.

Trivia Edit

General

  • In-game models for SKS in Insurgency and Insurgency: Sandstorm video games are based on the Chinese SKS-D and M models.
    • The SKS model in Insurgency: Modern Infantry Combat, however is based on the original Soviet SKS-45.

Insurgency

  • The SKS is chambered in the same cartridge as the AKM, and thus have an identical damage model. However, both serve different purposes and suit different styles of play. The SKS was designed more as a mid-long range weapon, hence its greater accuracy and semi-automatic only fire.
