Battlefield Vietnam Edit
|Rate of fire||
In Battlefield Vietnam, the CAR-15 is issued to American and South Vietnamese Assault kits. It is available on almost every map. It has a high rate of fire, moderate recoil, high damage, high accuracy and a magazine capacity of 30 rounds. Its high rate of fire and capacity can make it be effectively used as a submachine gun, and compared to its cousin, the M16A1, it's a better choice for any combat.
There is also a CAR-15/XM148, exclusively issued to the MACVSOG Assault and 5 Special Forces kit. It is basically the CAR-15, but it replaces its ability to aim and increase accuracy with the quick ability to use an under-barrel grenade launcher. It is not necessary to switch to the grenade launcher, hence making aiming impossible, by using the secondary fire button. It's a generally welcomed addition to close-quarter situations as the XM148 has a very limited range and an extremely noticeable arc in its trajectory. The inclusion of the XM148 in the Assault kit gets rid of the hand grenades.A popular strategy in Cambodian Incursion is to put some men on top of the bunker by Fire Base 2 and use their XM148s to pound the advancing Viet Cong Troops. The ammo box nearby allows them to stay there until they're killed or retreating.
