5.45x39mm US gs (US gs) is a 5.45x39mm ammunition type in Escape from Tarkov.

Description

A 5.45x39mm US gs (GRAU Index - 7U1) cartridge with a 5.1 gram subsonic bullet with a pointed tungsten carbide core over a lead base with a bimetallic jacket, in a steel case with a reduced charge.

This US cartridge (Umenshennoy Skorosti; "Reduced Speed") was designed by TsNIITOCHMASH in the mid-1980s for use in the AKS-74UB and AKS-74UBN models in conjunction with a suppressor, ensuring the weapons fire cycling and achieving an excellent noise reduction in addition to granting a considerable stopping power effect, but despite the composition of the bullet, it has difficulties to piercing basic ballistic protection and due to its design, it has a high bounce probability off various surfaces.
