The Daewoo Precision Industries K1 is a South Korean carbine assault rifle, the first modern firearm developed by Agency for Defense Development (ADD) and manufactured by Daewoo Precision Industries, and entered service in the Republic of Korea Armed Forces in 1981. Although the K1 uses 5.56x45mm NATO, it is classified as a submachine gun by the South Korean military and the current manufacturer S&T Motiv, because the K1 was intended to replace the M3 submachine gun.

Due to the design of its flash suppressor, the K1 exhibited serious problems in service with the ROK armed forces. The original version had excessive recoil, noise, flash, and weak stock due to increase in firepower. These problems caused difficulty in aiming especially during night operation. These shortcomings were later fixed by the development of the K1A which began production in 1982. The K1A featured a new flash suppressor with three holes in the top right quadrant to limit muzzle flip under rapid fire and reduces flash to one-third of that of the early K1. All K1 submachine guns in service were subsequently modified to the K1A standard.

Take-Down[]

The K-1A AR is a weapon featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Take-Down – Missions in Korea


Siege[]

"Submachine gun in a compact AR package and caliber. Offers medium-range accuracy."
— In-game description

The K1A is a submachine gun featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. It was introduced in the Operation White Noise expansion and is available for use by Vigil.[1]

Overview[]

The K1A is capable of taking down Light Armored Operators in three body shots within its effective range. However, it will take an additional body shot to take down the other two Armor Types. When equipped with a Suppressor, the K1A will take down Light and Medium Armored Operators in four body shots, while the Heavy Armored Operators take five instead. The weapon's high damage output however, comes at the cost of a relatively high vertical recoil.

Pros[]

  • Above-average damage per shot

Cons[]

  • Mediocre rate of fire
  • Low suppressor damage
  • Mediocre vertical recoil

Trivia[]

Siege & Extraction[]

  • Since the K1A fires in an intermediate cartridge, it should not be classified as a submachine gun, but rather a carbine. However, this isn't completely erroneous, as the South Korean military classifies the weapon as a submachine gun.
  • The K1A model is fitted with a folding Z-M LR 300 stock instead of its original collapsible stock.
