Operation Flashpoint: Red River
Operation Flashpoint: Red River is a tactical shooter video game developed and published by Codemasters for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. It is the sequel to the 2009 Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising, and was built on the EGO Engine. The game was released in Europe on April 21, 2011 and later in North America on June 7 in the same year.
The storyline takes place in Tajikistan in 2013, during a fictional conflict between the United States Marine Corps, Tajik insurgents, and later the People's Liberation Army of China.
The game is heavily simplified compared to Dragon Rising but retains some of the tactical elements, for instance, every bullet-firing weapon can Jam when firing, requiring the player to hit the reload key to clear the Jam with a unique animation. (Except for Pistols, which just use the reload animation, Jamming has also been tweaked as picked up enemy weapons have a signifficantly higher chance to Jam without equipping relevant unlocked skills to reduce jamming compared to US weapons.)
The following weapons appear in the video game Operation Flashpoint: Red River:
The MEU(SOC) is the main sidearm of the USMC. The MEU(SOC) is used by the Rifleman, Auto Rifleman (Machine Gunner) and Scout (Sniper) classes and can be unlocked for the Grenadier class.
The QSZ-92 is the main sidearm of the PLA, unlike Dragon Rising only PLA Snipers and AA troopers carry it.
Heckler & Koch MP5A4
The MP5A4 is the secondary weapon used by the Grenadier class and can be unlocked for the Scout. The weapon if fitted with a Picatinny rail on the top of the receiver, a SureFire 628 Forend WeaponLight (but for some reason having the flashlight hanging rather than fitted as part of the forend), and a different flash hider, the Scout gets exclusive access to a suppressor for the weapon.
Unfortunately, the MP5 and QCQ were nerfed hard compared to Dragon Rising, both weapons have absurd bullet spread even when tap-firing (if not set to Single Shot) that can be compared to shotguns in other video games, the handguns actually have more accuracy compared to them, making them relatively ineffective spray and pray weapons.
The official website has confirmed that the Jianshe QCQ-05 is the standard submachine gun for the PLA forces in-game, it is used by PLA Crew and AT Troops.
Colt M4A1 Carbine
The M4A1 is one of the main weapons the Marines use, attached with a MaTech rear iron sight, AN/PEQ-2 laser designator, and SureFire Universal WeaponLight. Optionally, it can be fitted with an Aimpoint CompM2 red dot, Trijicon TA31RCO ACOG scope, EOTech EOLAD 551 holographic sight, and M203A1 grenade launcher.
The M16A4 is the standard issue rifle of the Marines, can be seen attached with iron sights, Aimpoint M68 CCO, Trijicon TA31RCO ACOG scope, SureFire Universal WeaponLight and M203A2 grenade launcher. The in-game model of the M16A4 seems to have been based on the Canadian C7A1 rifle (cylindrical handguard and the small rails attached to the front sight post) rather than the M16A4 with the KAC M5 RAS handguard.
The AK-47 is confirmed by the official website to be the primary assault rifle of the Tajikistani insurgents, a scoped version called the "AK47M" equipped with a PSO-1 scope is used by insurgent snipers.
According to the official website, the QBZ-03 assault rifle will also be used by some PLA troops in-game, it is seemingly always equipped with a red dot sight.

The Barrett M107 is one of the available sniper rifles in-game used by the United States Marine Corps. The rifle is called "Model M107 SN" in-game. This is redundant, since "M" in M107 already means "Model," making the name literally "Model Model 107 SN". It has no available attachments as it is only available as a pick-up in missions.
