What is FAMAS?
FAMAS is the abbreviation of the name of an assault rifle from the weapon factor of Saint-Étienne. This is basically a bullpup style rifle that was designed in France and was manufactured by the MAS which is also located in Saint-Étienne, France. Actually, this rifle is a valued member of the Nexter Group which is a group with special influence from the French Government. This is also used as the service rifle of the French military forces. In the French Military troop, this FAMAS Skins rifle is known as the Bugle as it has got a very distinct shape and it is capable of fire at a speed of 1100 rounds of bullets in just one minute.
History and Capability of the FAMAS Skins
Though the use of FAMAS Skins has become famous in the last decade in the video game, the real use was started far before it. These types of special bullpup rifles were developed in the year 1946 in the AME and MAS. Both these are famous for the manufacturing of deadly fire weapons. From the time of the first Indo-China war, France got engaged in it and they started developing these types of deadly weapons to get a very distinctive place in the force of NATO.
The Project to manufacture the FAMAS rifle was initiated in the year 1967 and in the year 1971, the first prototypes were brought in front of the audience. It was given to the French Military forces to taste the usefulness in the year 1972. In the battle of Kolwezi, the French government felt the need for modern weapons on an emergency basis and thus they pressurized to make more of such types of rifles. In the year of 1978, the FAMAS rifle was accepted by the French Military forces as their standard rifle.
Types of FAMAS
From the introduction of the FAMAS rifles, there were several attempts to make it more efficient and thus many varieties of this rifle were brought in front. Since the inception of the FAMAS rifles, the MAS rifles were replaced by them. The FAMAS F1 rifle became one of the deadliest fire weapons as it overcame several difficulties. But since the development works were going on, there came the FAMAS G2 rifles which proved to be more efficient than the FAMAS F1 series. The second variety was introduced in the year 1994 and it satisfied the NATO standards. After the G2 Series, the FAMAS came with FAMAS Infantry which is said to be an improved version of the FAMAS F1. This rifle is featured with mounting Combat optics. The feature which is most notable is reflex sights with 4 times zooming capacity.
