The Superior Combat Assault Rifle, or SCAR, is the primary assault rifle for the Alliance of Nations during the war. The SCAR was introduced in 2018 by Scrutch Industries, a US-based company, and fielded into the U.S. military and special forces units. The SCAR utilizes the 6.8 Remington SPC round rather than the 5.56x45mm NATO round that most countries are using which allows for a larger magazine capacity and has no effect on combat effectiveness.
SCAR Variations Edit
By the end of the First War, the SCAR had switched to a smaller, custom "4mm SCAR" round and become the weapon of choice with the Alliance of Civilizations, resulting in different variations:
- The basic SCAR, which is a general purpose assault rifle, and is similar to the Heckler and Koch G36/XM8. General rifle for regular infantry use. It replaced the M16 as the standard-issue rifle of the U.S Armed Forces.
- The SCARAB, which is a carbine variant of the SCAR for special forces and police use adds compactness without decreasing combat effectiveness. Similar in use to the M4A1 Carbine, and has presumably its successor carbine.
- The SCARE, which is a sniper variant.
