"The assault rifle's little sister."
Introduction to Carbines
Carbines are shortened firearms designed for use by high-mobility and vehicular troops that do not require full-sized rifles.
The smaller size and lighter weight of carbines makes them easier to handle in close-quarter situations such as urban engagements, when deploying from military vehicles, or in any situation where space is confined. The disadvantages of carbines relative to assault rifles include inferior long-range accuracy and a shorter effective range due to their shorter barrel. Carbines are larger than submachine guns, they are harder to maneuver in tight encounters where superior range and stopping power at distance are not great considerations.
Modern carbines generally utilize the same intermediate-caliber ammunition as assault rifles, giving them the advantage of standardization over Personal Defense Weapons (PDW) that sometimes use proprietary cartridges, and range over submachine guns that often use pistol ammunition.
The list below will show you the available carbines in the mod, teaching you how to assemble and use them. If you have any more doubts or problems about any of the rifles, feel free to contact the team at Vic's Modern Warfare Forums at Curse.com.
