Real lifeEdit

In real life, the Sa-58P is the Vz. 58; a 7.62mm assault rifle of Czech origin that entered service in 1959. The Sa-58 externally resembles the Soviet AK-47, but is internally a substantially different design based on a short-stroke gas piston, which shares absolutely no parts with the Kalashnikov design - including the magazines.[2]

The P variant differs from the other variants as it has a standard fixed stock whilst the V variant has a metal folding stock.[3]

  • The Sa-58P and Sa-58V are less common than the Sa-58 CCO or Sa-58V ACOG despite lacking the optic sights and camouflage finishes of the latter.
  • In ArmA 2, the Sa-58P and all other Sa-58 weapons are only available in the "Army of the Czech Republic" expansion.[4]
