The Cellular Ammunition Rifle Base (CARB) is an advanced, modular infantry weapon system, developed by the Matanza Arms Corporation. The CARB is designed to fit the needs of modern infantry as well as private military units and security personnel. The system is built around the CARB Base Unit, which is a fully automatic assault rifle with a bullpup configuration. A variety of modular equipment can be attached quickly and easily to the base unit, allowing for the system to be quickly adapted to a wide variety of roles.
Matanza Arms Corporation developed the CARB to streamline their infantry weapons array down to a single multifunctional system. Although never adopted as the primary weapon system by any the world's major armies, it became widely popular with private military contractors and various special forces throughout the world. Valued for its versatility in many combat scenarios and innovative ammunition capacities, the CARB quickly earned respect from its customers. The system has been deployed on almost all of Earth's continents and also on numerous off-world locations.
