============

---MK22---

---M1911A1---

This masterpiece of an automatic pistol has been a faithful partner to U.S.
soilders since the first model was adopted by the U.S. Army in 1911. Capacity
is limited to seven rounds, but the .45ACP bullets boast excellent stopping
power, and the gun's simple design makes it highly reliable.

With its high potential firing accuracy, the M1911A1 is also widely used as a
base for custom models in shooting competitions.

---Single Action Army (SAA)---

Also known as the "Peacemaker" and the "Frontier," this single action revolver
is a symbol of the days of the Wild West. The masterpiece SAA was adopted as
the official sidarm of the U.S. Army in 1875.his pistol's solid frame
construction results in lengthy reload times, but also ensures extremely high
durability. This and the gun's simple mechanics make the SAA a highly reliable
weapon.

(Revolver Ocelot's weapon of choice.)


==================
3.SUBMACHINE GUNS
==================

---Scorpion--- 

A small submachine gun designed and produced in Czechoslovakia. It is extremely
compact, easy to handle, and uses loght .32ACP ammo, resulting in an excellent

Designed to be used by special forces and police in Warsaw Pact countries,
this SMG has also been adopted by many international terrorists, giving it a
high profile among Western countries as well.

---Uzi---

An Israeli-made submachine gun, the Uzi is designed to facilitate mass
production--appropriate for a country like Israel, which faces difficulty in
importing weapons.

The Uzi is also extremely reliable, crafted such that it rarely malfunctions in
dusty environments. Although it fires from an open bolt, the Uzi boasts 
respectable accuracy, enabling head shots at close range. Uses 9x19mm ammo.

---M10---

magazine of powerful 9x19mm ammo, firing at a rate of over 1'000 rounds per

==================

---AK-47---

It was adopted as the official rifle of the Soviet military in 1949. Its
austere and rugged construction allows it to endure even the roughest treatment

---M870---

With a wide range of applications, this is one of the most famous pump-action
shotguns in America, and is extremely poular with both hunters and law

configurations, with an adjustable barrel, extendable tube magazine, pistol
grip, and folding stock.

Holds seven 12-gauge shotgun shells.

accuracy surpasses that of the NATO standard. This, coupled with its 
repeat-fire capability, provides sustained suppressing power against the enemy.

Uses 7.62mmx54R ammo.

"3-line infantry rifle" that was first produced during the Tsarist period.

component. It enables multiple types of equipment to be produced from a single
line, and the basic handling is the same for each variation.

Uses 5.56x45mm ammo. Holds 100 rounds.

---RPG-7---

First deployed in 1962, the RPG-7 is the cutting edge in anti-tank weaponry. It
is the successor ro the RPG-2, which was itself inspired by the Panzer-faust, a
