The MAS-44 and its later variants, the MAS-49 and MAS-49/56

The MAS-44 prototype French semi-automatic rifle and was designed and manufactured by the MAS arms factory. The prototype itself evolved from the MAS-38/39 and MAS-40 rifles and had several variants such as the 44A, 44B, and 44C. Although 50,000 rifles were order in January 1945, only 6,200 rifles were delivered causing the rifle to see limited use during World War II. An updated variant, the MAS-49 was adopted by the French Army in July 1949 to replace the countries older bolt-action rifles. The MAS-49 saw significant use in the later stages of the First Indochina War, as well as during the Algerian War and the Suez Crisis.[1]

Battlefield V

"The Modèle 44 was a French secret so well-kept from the German Army that it barely survived. Samples ended up in the hands of partisans. It didn't enter mass production until after the war."

— In-game description

The MAS 44 is a weapon introduced in Battlefield V in the second Tides of War chapter, Lightning Strikes. It is unlocked for the Assault kit upon completion of the week two challenges.

It fires at 360 RPM, much like the Turner SMLE and the semi-auto Volkssturmgewehr, and has similar damage figures to both weapons. It can also be specialized to reload via detachable magazines at Rank 3, similar to the Gewehr 43 and the Ag m/42.
