|Weapon in Just Cause X: Global eXchange|
|Used by||NKAFPeople's Militia|
This old but reliable assault rifle was a backbone of the Soviet infantry back in the eighties, but today is rarely seen outside third-world countries, criminal syndicates an war museums. Considered obsolete in 2020, it's still very common in Kyungastan, serving both Military and Police/Militia forces. Rebels of the Democratic Opposition prefer western-made rifles, supplied by the Agency, however, some of their troops can still be seen using this relic.
Russian Federation made two attempts for replacing this gun; first, U39 Plechovka, was considered just as bad, if not worse. The second one, U45, preformed much better and made it to a new standard issue rifle for the Russian Army.
Pretty much a "starting" rifle of the JCX, A74 might be considered one of the worst firearms in the series. It's not precise, it does not have a stopping power of U45 due to it's smaller caliber, and the only good thing about it is that the ammunition is very common in Act I. Still, it can be used for taking down Militia officers and OMON troops relatively easy.
- It is made by TechMach Bureau
- The rifle is based on real world AKS-74.
