The 7.62 mm Assault Rifle was used by Eighty-Six as a last resort against light class Legion units, usually kept in a Juggernaut's cockpit. It is also used to defend themselves against self-propelled mines. It was not officially issued by the Republic's military, but the Eighty-Six still scavenged these rifles—either from storage facilities or fallen Republic soldiers from the first Legion invasion—and used them. It was the standard primary weapon for infantry of the old Republic Armed Forces.
