The SKS is a Soviet semi-automatic carbine chambered for the 7.62×39mm round, designed in 1943 by Sergei Gavrilovich Simonov. Its complete designation, SKS-45, is an initialism for Samozaryadnyj Karabin sistemy Simonova, 1945 (Russian: Самозарядный карабин системы Симонова, 1945; Self-loading Carbine of (the) Simonov system, 1945). In the early 1950s, the Soviets took the SKS carbine out of front-line service and replaced it with the AK-47; however, the SKS remained in second-line service for decades.

- The SKS is chambered in the same round as the AK-47, however, both serve different purposes and suit different styles of play. The SKS was designed more as a mid-long range weapon, hence its greater accuracy and semi-automatic only fire.
- The SKS in game uses external magazines indicative of the Chinese SKS-D and M models. The standard SKS was only loaded by stripper clips.
