Historical Description[]

As most non-Communist nations transitioned in the 1980s to service rifles that shot the new NATO standard 5.56x45 mm cartridge, China developed its own 5.8x42 mm ammunition. State-owned manufacturer Norinco got to work on a weapon that could fire this allegedly superior round. The world first observed the result, the QBZ-95, during the peaceful British handover of Hong Kong in 1997. What they saw was an assault rifle quite unlike either previous Chinese models or contemporary guns from Western nations and their allies.

The most obvious distinguishing feature of the QBZ-95 is its bullpup design. This means the action and magazine are placed behind the trigger which makes the weapon more compact, mitigates recoil, and increases maneuverability. Some of its variants include a shortened carbine, a light machine gun, and an export version called the QBZ-97 chambered for NATO rounds. The QBZ-95 remains the standard service rifle of the People's Liberation Army. It has also been exported to Sudan and several Asian countries, mostly for use by special forces.



Attacking Strategies[]

  • People's Advanced Rifleman has low health; making them vulnerable to defenses. Use Heavy Infantry as meat shields to protect the People's Advanced Rifleman.
  • People's Advanced Rifleman is cheap and can be used to set off hidden enemy traps.
  • Use People's Advanced Rifleman to protect heavy infantry from other infantry so your Heavy Infantry won't get distracted.
  • Since People's Advanced Rifleman can deal more damage to foot troops, bringing some along with Heavy Infantry and/or Heavy Cavalry will help deal with pesky defending foot troops!
  • Make sure to keep the People's Advanced Rifleman behind your 'meat shields' or away from danger.

Defensive Strategies[]

  • People's Advanced Rifleman can be used as good Alliance Troops. One example is that they can shoot over walls to attack troops of the attackers forcing the troops to destroy the wall to kill them. Another thing is that they're good against other Heavy Infantry.
