The Carabine Mitrailleuse 1918 (English: Machine Carbine 1918), or simply the Ribeyrolles 1918, was an attempt to manufacture an automatic rifle for French forces. Named after its designer Ribeyrolles (who had previously worked on the Chauchat and the RSC 1917), it fired what is considered an intermediate cartridge (similar in capabilities to an assault rifle cartridge) at 550-600 rounds per minute. It was to be fitted with a bayonet and bipod, intended to be used in a supporting role similar to a light machine gun.

Battlefield 1Edit

This item has a Codex entry: Ribeyrolles 1918 Carbine
"Chambered for an intermediate cartridge, the select-fire Ribeyrolles can be considered the [sic] one of the first assault rifles nowadays."

— In-game weapon description

"This basic carbine pattern comes with a bipod, allowing it to be very accurate under sustained fire."

— In-game variant description

The Ribeyrolles 1918 (also referred to as the Ribeyrolles 1918 Carbine) is a submachine gun introduced in the Battlefield 1: They Shall Not Pass expansion for the Assault class.

The Factory is one of two variants of the carbine. It is unlocked upon obtaining 50 kills with the Automatico M1918 Factory and obtaining 20 headshots with the MP 18 Optical.

The Optical variant was introduced in the Weapon Crate update on May 7 2018.[1] The variant is equipped with a lens sight.

It is notable for being one of two Assault primaries with a bipod - the other being the Hellriegel 1915 Defensive - providing long range capability for the kit. Performance is otherwise similar to the MP 18, which has a larger magazine and better hipfire statistics.
