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?


The West has supplied "guerilla" weapons before in the real world, and Pixy's AKM could've been picked up off a dead enemy.

As for Pixy being aligned with ISAF, I can confirm he is definitely working for them in the last cutscene of ACZ, as an adviser or otherwise. Aces at War has the concept art of Pixy's interview showing him wearing an ISAF hoodie.

I know...whats your point? It doesn't remove the fact that the AK is a symbol for underground resistance movements.

Mind getting a scan of that?

I'd be willing to upload the whole thing here if the mods are ok with it. In the meantime...

Ah ok, interesting find. Course it is a concept but....OOOH (!idea!), does it happen to have a render of the dove sitting on top of the Helmet you see in the Zero trailers at the end?

Closest I could find. Before anyone asks, I already looked over the AC4 stuff really fast and while concept art shows Erusians using AKs, there's nothing showing ISAF ground forces.

ISAF small arms are probably the usual m4/16s or probably generic movie prop ARs like the Russian soldier in the Moscow cut scene in AH i dunno

I personally thought he was a member of a local militia, given his garb.

You don`t mean that black and white photograph from the opening sequence of AC5, do you? Because that certainly fits what you described.

Well, that`s a shame, because they`re not members of ISAF.

Is Aces at War only in Japane? I saw that it was a preorder bonus but... I hope they release it i nEnglish too.

AK are everywhere, and every army worth something is trained to used them due to their commonality, I mean, it is safe to assume that type of commonality with weapons continues in AC seeing how they have M-16s and our jets in their world.

Sorry for "necroquote"

Doesn't at the Pixy's interview can be seen an ISAF flag?

And IIRC, The Eruseans appeared carrying AKs in the cutscene when the boy was talking how the took San Salvacion.

This has already been confirmed; you should have read through the rest of the thread before asking that again. :P Yes, it was an ISAF flag.

The Erusians didn't show any weapons in hand in the first cutscene he speaks in (before Mission 1). I don't recall any other cutscene with troops (except with that one military crossing guard in the next cutscene).

Oh yeah, that's the one I'm talking about.

I just saw it again. We don't get any clear shots of any hand weapons; there's only two shots, one while the soldiers are marching (we don't get to see any weapons clearly) and while an MP was on a sidewalk directing traffic (his gun is slung over his shoulder on the other side of the way we're facing him, and we don't get enough of the weapon to identify it).
