Weapon Background[edit]

The current main service rifle of the Chinese People's Liberation Army/Law enforcement units, the QBZ-95, had many derived products and variants. The QBZ-97 is one such variant. The QBZ-97 is essentially a QBZ-95 chambered for the 5.56x45mm NATO cartridge, and was a model developed primarily for international export. The two rifles are commonly referred to as the 'Type 95' and 'Type 97' to indicate the year they completed development and entered service.

The Type 97 is a selective fire, bullpup configured assault rifle. It is mechanically identical to the Type 95, in that they both use a short-stroke gas piston and rotating bolt. Brass ejects out the right-hand side of the gun, and the charge handle is located on top of the receiver below the carrying handle. The gun frame itself, like many modern firearms, is made from industrial-grade polymers in order to reduce weight.[1]

Whereas the Type 95 is chambered for the Chinese-developed 5.8x42mm caliber round, the Type 97 was developed for export into nations that prefer using the 5.56x45mm NATO standard cartridge. As a result, the Type 97 had several distinctive adjustments made to cope with the firing of 5.56x45mm NATO. 5.56mm NATO has a higher average chamber pressure than 5.8mm, so adjustments were made to the gas cylinder diameter, volume, and position to ensure reliable cycling of the action. The ejection force of 5.56 is also significantly larger, so the brass ejection mechanism was also reworked to compensate for this.

Other minor changes include a redesigned muzzle and an adjusted magazine well to accept STANAG magazines. Later production variants of the Type 97 feature a three round burst fire mode similar to the one on the Type 95. Additional Picatinny rail placements can be found on the weapon to fit combat accessories and further improve the weapon's commercial appeal; in particular this rifle in game is equipped with the T97.ca FTU (flat top upper), a popular Canadian made aftermarket modification to add a full length top rail to a Gen 1 T97. This could be considered a reference to the carbines popularity amongst Canadian sport shooters.[2]


In-game, Type 97 is using the T97.ca FTU (Flat Top Upper) modification. This modification was designed and produced in Canada after common complaints that the carrying handle made it difficult to mount optics. The FTU modification removed the top carrying handle completely, changed the top receiver charging handle to a horizontal non-reciprocating handle, and also added a long Picatinny rail placement on top for better optic/accessory compatibility.
