The MC51SD is a British Integrally Suppressed Carbine variant of the G3. It is unlocked at rank 86, or it can be bought with credits.

History

The MC51SD (Machine Carbine 51 Schalldämpfer) is an integrally suppressed variant of the MC51 carbine - a British carbine variant of the German G3 rifle. As its name suggests, the MC51SD features an integral suppressor, similar to how Heckler & Koch's MP5 has the MP5SD as its integrally suppressed variant. The original MC51 was designed in the mid-1980s by the United Kingdom defense firm, FT Ordnance, in order to replace the Sterling L34 due to its inadequate range. Designed to be used by the United Kingdom Special Forces (UKSF), the weapon is chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO for more accurate shots and superior range over Sterling's 9x19mm Parabellum ammunition.

Unfortunately, the MC51 and its variants proved to be unreliable due to several problems, such as the noticeably higher recoil than the Sterling submachine gun due to the larger caliber chambered for the weapon. This meant that the MC51 was used for only a limited time by the British Special Air Service (SAS) and the Special Boat Service (SBS). Not long after the MC51 was brought into service, the MC51K (Kurz - short) variant was produced and featured a significantly shorter barrel. However, this variant had even more prominent recoil problems than the others.

The MC51 was replaced by the more reliable HK53 not long after it was introduced.

In-Game

General Information

The MC51SD is a slow and steady carbine. With a firerate firmly parked between the AG-3 and the G3 (its unsuppressed platform members), it serves as a middleground in the G3 family. With high minimum damage and relatively tame recoil, the MC51SD serves as an interesting, stealthy alternative to its family.

Usage & Tactics

For anyone used to the SCAR-H without attachments, the MC51SD will be a familiar (albeit slower paced) experience. While the MC51SD has recoil, it is not particularly bad: it bounces directly up, so a sight with a relatively open lower housing (such as the OKP-7) makes targeting enemies during recoil much easier. Its hipfire performance is middling at best, but within about 30 studs, this weapon is a serious threat to anyone blindly charging its wielder.

Should the MC51SD ever land a headshot in close quarters distances, it will be enough to allow any follow-up shot from the weapon, anywhere on the body, to kill the target. Even a bodyshot deals at least 50 damage up close, making the MC51SD surprisingly lethal. Otherwise, it is a three-shot kill (3SK) weapon.

The MC51SD's very slow damage drop-off rate it pays off, by having one of the closest maximum effective ranges of all carbines, at 121 studs. Even at range, however, it still takes 4 shots from the MC51SD to get a kill, making it play much like an assault rifle.

Of note is the MC51SD's heavily dampened sound. When it is quiet, this weapon is almost as difficult to place as a MAC10 using the Sionics Suppressor. If there happens to be any gunfire, the MC51SD will quickly fade into the background, becoming almost unnoticeable. This makes the MC51SD an extremely good weapon for stealthy players who can pick their targets, but need to be able to have some crowd control options.

Conclusion

The MC51SD is a well rounded battle rifle. Despite the integral suppressor's detriments of lower velocity and limited effective range, the MC51SD is a force to be reckoned with.

However, its slow fire rate means that any misses will be punished and exploited by weapons with higher fire rates. Consider this weapon an excellent choice for flankers with the ability to fight a large majority of weapons one-on-one in close quarters.

Pros & Cons

Pros:

  • Integral suppressor.
  • High damage - two-shot body shot up close.
  • Fast reload times.
  • Unobtrusive iron sights.
  • Mild recoil, easily tempered by attachments.
  • Good handling characteristics.
  • Tight bullet spread.

Cons:

  • Slow rate of fire.
  • Cannot equip barrel attachments.
  • Low maximum damage range.
  • Moderate visual recoil, made worse when using sights which obstruct the lower screen (as this will bounce up to the center with recoil)
  • Short damage drop-off range.
  • Side-to-side recoil cannot be easily countered.
  • Mediocre close-range TTK without torso or headshots.

Trivia

  • In addition to the original MC51 and MC51SD, the other variants include the MC51K and MC51T, a tactical version with a retractable stock and a limiter to a three-round burst.
  • Imperial Defence Services Ltd. still markets the standard model of the MC51.
  • The MC51SD variant of the MC51 was only issued to the SBS.
  • This variant of the G3 is also extremely rare to come across, and as a result, is quite expensive in the collector's market.
