It seems as if they use Ak-47s beacause at the end of ACZ Pixy is fighting for them and holding one. any objections?

There is no evidence to suggest that he is fighting for ISAF.

If AKs exist in the Strangereal world, then I'm guessing ISAF has some for the same reason that everybody has at least a few AKs. But there's no direct evidence for anything, except the generic hand grenade that Altman was told to use at Megalith.

I agree with Constellation and Kono. Gun make and/or model are not specified in the game, and who knows which continent Pixy was even on?

I recall Allied ground forces mentioning they had rifles and anti-tank mines during Whiskey Corridor, and stinger missiles and bayonets were also used during Operation Bunker Shot. Mounted bayonets, to be specific.

I'll agree that there is a blue flag on top of a building in the final ACZ cutscene. Can anyone else confirm the design?

I'm sure there are a lot of guns that can have bayonets mounted on them. Who knows, maybe Pixy's still working as a mercanary and he brought his own gun. Maybe he's finally become a soldier and it's standard issue. We can't know for sure.

You need to look harder, it is clearly marked with the ISAF delta and "ISAF" underneath

Yeah, I do. It's ISAF.

For some reason, i've always assumed that the war Pixy was fighting at the end, was actually some localized sectarian conflict that broke out after the end of the main war with Erusea. But I may be wrong.

-can anyone remember the specific date of his interview? Was it before or after Erusea surrendered?

I was refering to the war in Ace Combat 04. I thought it was sometime in September 2005.

My A/V cord is in really bad shape right now, so it's pretty hard to read anything, and the videos on youtube are too low quality for me to see.

The Usean Continental War did extend from September 2004 to September 2005. As such. Pixy could not have been participating in the main war of AC04. It seemed to me like he was engaged in a simple turf battle, but that's just my take on things.

To my knowledge, the only small arms we ever see in AC5 are:
Cutscene after Mission 15, White Noise: Nagase's pistol
Cutscene after Mission 18+, 8492: Perrault's pistol, Nagase's pistol again, an Osean soldier's assault rifle

In ACZ, the only small arm I can remember is Pixy's cloth-wrapped assault rifle, seen in his interview with the nameless journalist. The outside footage in the interview video suggests that Pixy may be fighting for ISAF, possibly as an ISAF soldier.

I can't identify guns by sight myself.

you might be right a of him beinga mercenary, but the ISAF is like NATO and might have a diversity of guns.

Also the war had apparently started a year earlier.

Pixy's rifle is clearly a Kalashnikov. Now if it's standard rifle of ISAF we'll never know.

If he were in a unit for ISAF, don't you think he'd, i dunno, have a few guys with him? Most likely scenario is that hes just there, fighting for no one but himself (as the epilogue suggests). Since the Ak is a symbol of underground/guerilla/terrorist organisations due to its availability, is likely that this is the case.

Since ISAF are technologically Western aligned in their preferred aircraft, it would make sense that they'd be using a range of M4/M16 varients, no?

Then again, that outside shot could've been the 'other side' of the battle line and Pixy isn't on the same side as the flag.

And I believe the "nameless journalist" is Brett Thompson.
