The HK33 is a 5.56mm assault rifle developed in the 1960s by West German armament manufacturer Heckler & Koch GmbH (HK), primarily for export. It uses the G3 operating principle and basic design concept. The rifle was produced in four types: the first type, chambered in 7.62×51mm NATO; the second, using the Soviet 7.62×39mm M43 round; the third, chambered in .223 Remington and 5.56×45mm NATO; and the fourth type, chambered for the 9×19mm Parabellum pistol cartridge. Commercially the HK33 was a successful design but it did not sell as well as the G3.

The weapon is featured in several installments of the Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Franchise and is designated as the AR33.

— In-game description

The AR33 is an assault rifle featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. It is available for use by Thatcher and Flores.

Overview[]

The AR33 is a decent, Jack-of-All-Trades primary weapon. However, its magazine capacity leaves something to be desired, as its rather underwhelming size of 25 rounds, plus the additional round in the chamber, are not particularly attractive qualities for a weapon. The recoil pattern is fairly manageable given its rate of fire.
