Rejoice US Tankers and Paratroopers. In the coming update named Young (after US brigadier-general Gordon Russell Young) comes the M1A1 carbine with folding stock.
As the weapon was designed to be a light and compact weapon, it only requires 4 equipment slots. This makes it available to US tankers and it allows for new tactical options for US paratrooper loadouts.
Paratroopers can unlock it on the Parachute Ribbon at Rank 11 as the Second paratrooper carbine.
Or it unlocks for tankers on the Armour Damage Ribbon at Rank 9 as the Second tank weapon.
The handling is quite similar to the existing M1M2 Carbine.
Today we’ll look at a favorite of mine, the renowned M1 Garand. It’s your starting weapon when you begin your career as an American Rifleman, which reflects historical facts: the United States Armed Forces adopted the Garand as the standard service rifle in 1936. It’s still widely used by civilians and sought after by collectors to this day.
