Battle Arms Development is an American manufacturer of .300 AAC Blackout, 5.56 NATO or 9x19mm carbines. Among these are the Tanker and Paratrooper models, which were designed to evoke memories of WWII style weapons, most notably the M1 Carbine, (actually issued to both US tankers and paratroopers, hence the names), and thus come with a bronze-y distressed finish designed to represent the cosmoline finish of WWII weapons, and French walnut furniture (the handguard and pistol grip are wood, though the cheek rest is just polymer made to look like wood). The only difference between the two models is the Paratrooper's "BAD-PDW Monolithic PDW Lower Receiver & VERT Stock System", which in essence just means that the fixed part of the Paratrooper's stock is part of the lower itself, whereas the original Tanker has the stock as its own piece, mounted onto the buffer tube like a standard AR-15 stock.

Additionally, because the Paratrooper's stock is part of the lower, the Paratrooper cannot be sold as a pistol according to the U.S. legal system, meaning that they intentionally introduced a version that is identical in every way except for the fact that a buyer MUST pony up a $200 tax stamp and go through a waiting period to get it, whereas with the Tanker, a buyer could go through that process if they so choose, but otherwise would be able to stick a pistol brace on it and call it a day.
