The FAL 50.63 Para (or the PARA FAL) is a paratrooper variant of the FAL 50.00. It is equipped with a folding stock, a shorter barrel of 436 mm and a folding charging handle when compared to its predecessor.
The variant was specifically requested by Belgian Paratroopers to allow for a rifle that could be slung across the chest horizontally while jumping out of a plane's doorway.
The FAL 50.63 Para is comparable to the FAL 50.00 in-game. Both sport high damage, being a three-shot-kill (3SK) up close and a 4SK at range. Its rate-of-fire (RoF) is also identical, at 700 RPM, as is its muzzle velocity at 2500 studs per second. This ultimately results in the time to kill (TTK) of the FAL 50.63 Para being quite low and similar to its larger counterpart. However, the range on the Para is shorter, at 40 and 155 studs for max and min range respectively, compared to 80 max and 180 min for the FAL 50.00.
The FAL 50.63 Para, like the FAL 50.00, has high vertical and horizontal recoil, which can be extremely hard to control if the user does not have the proper skills and experience to overcome it.
Like most primary weapons, the FAL 50.63 Para has an extreme versatility in available attachments, allowing users to customize the weapon based on their needs.
Usage & Tactics
The FAL 50.63 Para is designed for close-medium range engagements, given it has a shorter effective range and slightly worse recoil when compared to the FAL 50.00. A user can treat the Para as an aggressive battle rifle rather than a carbine, instead of a more traditional medium ranged weapon.
It is recommended to use a muzzle device such as the Compensator to decrease the Para's horizontal recoil, extending its effective range in automatic fire. It is also recommended to equip a low zoom and simple optic like a Coyote Sight or a Reflex Sight to help track targets and visibility while aiming. The spray could also be decreased by putting a weapon grip, such as the Angled Grip. A Laser is a good addition, especially when hipfiring, or using the alternate aim function via T.
Like the FAL 50.00, its larger counterpart, the FAL 50.63 can be a hard weapon to master, being limited by its high recoil, sluggish mobility and slow reload speed. However, if handled with great care and proper use, it can become an extremely versatile rifle that can be well used at all ranges.
