The DKS-501 Sniper Rifle is a small gun in Fallout Tactics.

It is an excellent long range projectile weapon. Originally .308, this one is chambered in the more common 7.62mm caliber[1].

Behind the scenes

  • It is unclear which specific 7.62mm caliber this weapon could refer to (there are dozens); It may possibly be referring to the Soviet 7.62x39mm round, but given the pervasive propaganda-fueled antipathy towards anything Communist in pre-war America, this is unlikely. It is more likely a reference to either the 30-06 Springfield US Army cartridge for both World Wars and Korea, known as the 7.62x63mm in metric measurement or the .30 Carbine, used in the M1, M2 and M3 Carbines. Sometimes called the 7.62x33mm.

References

  1. Apparently, the makers of Fallout Tactics were not aware of the fact that .308 is the same caliber as 7.62mm, just in inches. By .308, they probably mean 7.62 × 51 mm NATO (as the commercial version is widely known as .308 Winchester) and by 7.62mm, they probably meant 7.62 x 39 mm, but it should have been specified anyway
