World in Conflict: Soviet Assault (2009)

World in Conflict is a real-time tactics (RTT) video game released on September 18, 2007 in North America, later on September 20 in Australia and on September 21 in Europe. Developed by Massive Entertainment and published by Ubisoft (formally by Sierra Entertainment) for the PC, World in Conflict won many Best Strategy Game awards for 2007. Set in an alternate late 1980s, the game depicts a desperate Soviet Union pursuing military action against NATO in a last-ditch attempt to preserve itself, triggering World War III, culminating in an invasion of the United States by Soviet forces in 1989. The single-player campaign has players control US and NATO forces across war-torn Europe and the Northwestern United States.

In March 2009, an expansion pack called World in Conflict: Soviet Assault was released and introducing six new single-player missions, which shows the war from the Soviet perspective, and introduces new characters.

The following weapons appear in the video game World in Conflict and the expansion World in Conflict: Soviet Assault:

WARNING! Spoilers are included in few pictures and their descriptions.


Beretta M9

A Beretta M9 is fired by an American soldier during the final cutscene of the mission Last Stand. This could also be the holstered sidearms of some characters.

Colt M1911A1

A pistol with a wooden grip that's likely a Colt M1911A1 appears in Bannon's holster.

Makarov PM/Baikal IJ-70

A Makarov PM is used by Capt. Malashenko in a couple of cutscenes. It may perhaps be modelled on the commercial version, as it appears to have an adjustable rear sight.

The business end. Note what appear to be adjustable rear sights.

Unknown Revolver

An unknown, low-detail revolver is used by Seattle police officers in the beginning of the game.

Franchi SPAS-12

A stock-less Franchi SPAS-12 can be seen in the intro and in one of the CGI trailers, though not used in-game. It can also be very briefly seen (though poorly modelled and far too small) during an in-engine cutscene.

Assault Rifles


The AK-47 is the standard-issue weapon of the Soviet soldiers. It is inaccurate to see the AK-47 used by Soviet soldiers in 1989, the AK-74 would be more appropriate. As with the other assault rifles, the AK-47 is always seen with an attached grenade launcher; a GP-25 in this case.

AK-47 - 7.62x39mm
In-game AK-47, with GP-25.


The more period appropriate AK-74 is seen in the hands of Soviet soldiers during Soviet Assault cutscenes.

AS Val

AS Vals are seen in the hands of the unique "stealth" Spetznaz during the first Soviet Assault mission.

AS Val - 9x39mm

Colt M16A2

The M16A2 is the standard issue weapon of the US soldiers and Norwegian Rangers. In cutscenes, the M16A2 is seen used by 1st Lt. Parker, Cpt. Mark Bannon, Cpl. Anton "Ants" Rodriguez, Cpt. James Webb (with an M203 grenade launcher), and many other characters. In gameplay, the M16A2 is always depicted with a M203 grenade launcher.

Colt Model 733

A Colt Model 733 is used only by Col. Sawyer in France and Norway, though he never fires it.

In cutscenes, Commandant Jean-Baptiste Sabatier is the only NATO character to be seen carrying a FAMAS F1.

The FAMAS G1 is the standard issue weapon of the NATO soldiers. Like the M16A2 and the AK-47, the FAMAS G1 in always seen with a grenade launcher in gameplay. The FAMAS G1 was never mass-produced; the NATO troops (who are primarily French) should be using the FAMAS F1 seen above.

M249 SAW

The original M249 is used by Cpl. Thompson in cutscenes. Cpl. Thompson is the only one to be seen using an M249, though in gameplay the US Infantry squads incorrectly use the Mk 46 Mod 0 instead.

The M240B, distinguished by the rail on top, but missing its heat-shield, is mounted on Land Rovers and also used by one soldier in each Infantry squad. It is odd to see the M240B in use by NATO forces, as an FN MAG would be more appropriate.

M240 in the hands of a NATO infantryman. Note that as in-game NATO infantry are French, and France did not adopt the FN MAG until 2011, this should be an MAS AA-52.

Mk 46 Mod 0

The Mk 46 Mod 0 is used by one soldier in each Infantry squad. It would be more appropriate to see an M249 SAW or M60, as the Mk 46 Mod 0 is designed as a special operations weapon, and is also anachronistic to the late-1980s setting. A note of interest is that the front sights are awkwardly modelled and don't look like any from an FN Minimi-based weapon.

Mk 46 Mod 0 machine gun - 5.56x45mm

The PKM is used by Soviet Infantry squads and mounted on UAZs.

PKM - 7.62x54mmR

Carl Gustav M2

The Carl Gustav M2 is used by US soldiers as AT defense.

FIM-92A Stinger

The FIM-92A Stinger is used by only one soldier in each Infantry squad, and is able to attack helicopter units. As with the US Infantry, NATO forces also use the FIM-92A Stinger against air units.

The GP-25 grenade launcher is used by Soviet soldiers and is attached to all AK-47s in the game.

M136 AT4

In the Soviet Assault launch trailer, some American soldiers can be seen firing an M136 AT4. It is also seen on the back of a soldier in one of the US campaign's cutscenes, though is never seen used in-game.

Mk 153 SMAW

What appears to be an Mk 153 SMAW made by altering the pre-existing BGM-71 TOW model is used as the NATO anti-tank launcher. A more appropriate launcher for French forces in the 1980s would be the LRAC F1.

The RPG-7 is the standard Soviet AT weapon in-game. Its rear part is awkwardly modelled, appearing unusually long.

SA-7 Grail

The standard Soviet AA weapon appears to be the SA-7 Grail.

GE M134 Minigun

The GE M134 Minigun can only be seen in the "New York" cinematic video, mounted on the tail of a USMC MH-53 Pave Low helicopter (while the Pave Low was only used by the US Air Force, once can assume that during World War III, equipment standardization may be understandably relaxed). The Minigun is in the original crew served mount and is fitted with a GAU-17/A type slotted flash suppressor.
