ART-18A ''Widowmaker'' family by ScrewfaceRomeo ART-18A ''Widowmaker'' family by ScrewfaceRomeo
Introduced in 1964 to replace aging RP-1942K battle rifles, the first ART-18 was an almost direct copy of the 5.56mm Stoner AR18. Complaints from troops in regards to power and the nickname "Stoner's popgun" led to the development of the improved "A" variant. The ART-18A was chambered for the more powerful 7.5x50mm CAR cartridge, a shortened version of the 7.5x62mm Cordian battle rifle cartridge. It also had an improved gas system and a better stock and grip, derived from the Israeli Galil. This version came to be much loved by troopers, who dubbed it "Widowmaker". A sniper version was also produced, which came to be popular with Force Recon Expeditionaries and SIAS, as well as infantry snipers. Eventually in 1983 it was replaced with the ART-84 "Badger", although sniper variants remain in service with the Police to this day.

I didn't even know this existed. Eugene Stoner was a busy guy.

AR-18. Pretty damn far from it.

I'm guessing you get your information from Call of Duty.

Well, the Galil is based on the Rk-62, a Finnish improvement of the AKM assault rifle. It's basically a highly modified AKM.

The AR-18 is an American rifle designed by Eugene Stoner, creator of the AR-15 and Stoner 63. Basically a pistol-driven AR-15 made of stamped steel instead of milled aluminum. It's a very, very different weapon.

I just realize this gun is look-a-like in BFBC2 (Battlefield Bad Company 2) GALIL or whatever it is,in my research The 4th weapon is called "PSG 1" and uses assult rifle bullets,but it still 1-shot,causing by hitting of it's bullet will cause early death (by hitting in other parts of the body) and the second weapon had a "M203 Grenade Launcher" its been used in many of wars *i dont know if this weapon USED in cold war* and the OTHER type of weapon i know named "WIDOWMAKER"in TF2(Team Fortress 2)It dont uses Bullets its ONLY USES metal (engie's maximum metal currency:200 in uknown math computing its cost 6-12 shots) 
THAT IS ALL :/

Jesus, man, put some grammar dressing on that word salad. I can't even understand what you're trying to say.
