The MA5K carbine is a firearm used almost exclusively by United Nations Space Command special operations forces, notably the Spartan-III supersoldiers. It is part of Misriah Armory's MA5 series.[1]

Overview[edit]

The MA5K is a shortened variant of the standard MA5 Individual Combat Weapon System. It is fully automatic and receives a thirty-round magazine of 7.62×51mm FMJ-AP ammunition.[1] The most conspicuous difference between the MA5K and other MA5 models is the replacement of the distinctive electronics housing with a carrying handle similar to that of the BR55 battle rifle. The handle probably integrates a digital ammunition counter like the BR55 and other MA5 models.

Trivia[edit]

The 'K' in this weapon's designation follows the tradition of 20th and 21st German weapons including the letter in their designations. 'K' stands for kurz, German for short.
