The R-101C (Compact) Carbine is a anti-personnel fully automatic assault rifle. The R-101C Carbine is a medium range, automatic assault rifle. Extremely versatile and user friendly, it is the workhorse assault rifle of the frontier. The weapon is most effective at mid-range, but is still somewhat competitive at close and long ranges, meaning the weapon fits any combat style whether aggressive or defensive. Although the weapon has generous usability and adaptability to any combat scenario, it is inferior to pilot weapons specifically built for close and long range combat. It is currently under the possession of the Alliance of Nations (Namely the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation).
