Historical Description[]

The Type 56 was a Chinese variant of the AK-47 7.62X39mm assault rifle. The Chinese version is nearly identical to the Soviet original, save for a folding bayonets (as opposed to detachable) and fully enclosed frontal gun sight. China export the Type 56 to many of it´s communist allies throughout the Cold War, including the Democratic Republic of Vietnam. However, when the Vietnamese Army invaded Cambodia in 1979, China retaliated and faced a battle-hardened enemy armed with Chinese weapons. The Type 56 continue to appear in conflicts across Southeast Asia, the Balkans, and the Middle East.

The soldier is wearing what appears to be olive green uniform with a overcoat and same color pants. He wears a olive green trapper hat with a brim and has a People's Liberation Army label on it. He carries a large backpack and welds a rifle which looks like a QBZ-03 with a unknown rifle handguard and a fixed stock instead of a folding stock in which the QBZ-03 has.

Attacking Strategies[]

  • People's Veteran Rifleman has low health; making them vulnerable to defenses. Use Heavy Infantry as meat shields to protect the People's Veteran Rifleman.
  • People's Veteran Rifleman is cheap and can be used to set off hidden enemy traps.
  • Use People's Veteran Rifleman to protect heavy infantry from other infantry so your Heavy Infantry won't get distracted.
  • Since People's Veteran 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 Veteran Rifleman behind your 'meat shields' or away from danger.

Defensive Strategies[]

  • People's Veteran 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.
