For the rifle variant, see M16; Not to be confused with the M4

The CAR-15 (Colt Automatic Rifle-15), also known as the Colt Model 610 or the XM177, is a carbine variant of the original M16 assault rifle. The CAR-15 is a carbine assault rifle manufactured by Colt's Manufacturing Company (CMC) that chambers the 5.56x45mm NATO round. The CAR-15 is considered to be the predecessor of the M4 Carbine.[1]

The CAR-15 is categorized as an assault rifle in the Rainbow Six universe. The CAR-15 only appears in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six

The CAR-15 is a weapon featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six.

A compact version of the M-16, the CAR-15 is commonly used when the firepower of an assault rifle is needed, but the weight and size is not. It is commonly used by US and Israeli special forces. It comes standard with a single, three round, and full auto trigger group.

  • The CAR-15 is modeled with 20 round magazines, and incorrectly feeds 30 rounds out of said magazines.
  • For some reason, the CAR-15's handguard is the same length as the M16A2 in game, despite the CAR-15 being a carbine version of the latter.
  • The weapon can not actually fire in 3-round burst in real life, like it is shown in-game.
