Fallout: Crescent City
Type 81 Assault Rifle
Chinese Standard Assault Rifle
Aspect: Twenty Million Soldiers Can’t Be Wrong
Ammo: 7.62×39 mm, 30 Round Magazine
The Type 81 incorporates elements of the Dragunov, SKS, and AK series rifles.
The rifle is cosmetically influenced on the Type 56 license produced AK-47, but with a SKS-like short-stroke gas-piston design and improvements to reduce the recoil and muzzle jump, giving better firing accuracy.
The Type 81 rifle retains the general layout of AK-47 but isn’t an improved variant of the license produced AK-47 (the Type 56); major differences include the positioning of the sights and stock of the rifle.
The most easily distinguishable feature is an exposed muzzle part of the barrel. The foresight is moved back for a modification to fire rifle grenades from the barrel.
