Weapon Background

A distant relative of the Kalashnikov rifles developed by the Zastava Arms company in 2004, Zastava M21 is the current standard issue service rifle for the Serbian Army, production of the M21 began around 2004.

The Zastava M21 is a conventional layout, gas operated assault rifle with a rotating bolt locking system. Chambering the 5.56x45mm NATO, M21 is fed by a 30-round magazine, able to achieve a rate of fire of 680 rounds per minute, covering an effective firing range up to 600 metres. Having many similar design features to a Kalashnikov rifle, right side charging handle, behind the well magazine release, even able to utilize a Kalashnikov style clamp mount for optics.

Like most other modern modular assault rifle designs, M21 can attach specific combat accessories based on sortie needs, the gun is compatible with items such as bipod and vertical fore grip. A derived model of the Soviet GP-25 underslung 40mm grenade launcher unit was designed for and issued to M21, though 22mm calibre rifle grenade can be launched from the muzzle flash hider. To improve compatibility with NATO issue accessories, M21 can undergo modifications and mount Picatinny rails. M21 also features a foldable stock.

Zastava Arms have experimented with different barrel forging processes, other than the conventional rifling barrel, M21 variants also have access to polygonal barrels, barrels made for Zas M21 are hard chrome plated to achieve a longer service lifespan.

Other than the main battle rifle variant, M21 have two shorter variants labelled as M21 S (Shorter barrel assault rifle) and M21 C (Carbine).

Character Info


The second T-doll nineo contributed to Girls Frontline, The game already have a RF M21, so nineo addresses Zastava M21 simply as Zas to avoid confusions. Zas is a very eye catching T-doll with peculiar features: Mushroom head Odd hair style and colour, very visible nail polish of different colours, mismatching stockings and an odd earring piece on her left ear. General colour theme of Zas is black white and cyan added with a bit of orange. The colour combination of cyan and orange does give Zas a little bit of Sci-Fi look.

There is a triangle marking on her orange goggles, same markings can be found above her hips and on her tongue. No possible suggestions towards the meaning of these markings from neither MICA team nor nineo (yet).


Official character description states that she is a rationalized surrealist, rational actions are essentially her faith. She does have interesting hobbies that are not quite rational, one of which is finger nail painting, apparently each one of her finger nails all have a different fragrance. (She even offers to paint the Commander's nails)

This weibo post from nineo is an unofficial character sheet for Zas, shown several features of Zas' character design and some character personality settings, though note that the character setting part are not official description from MICA team, but purely from nineo.


Zas features a very fast 4 second initial cool down grenade launching skill, which is as fast as the SMG units with Molotov skill while having a larger area of effect. Zas' skill have two possible effects depending on how many units she hits with the grenade:

  • More than 3 units hit by the skill, the grenade inflicts a debuff that causes all the enemy units she hit to take increased damage.
  • Less than 3 units hit by the skill, Zas herself will do more damage per shot for a duration.

With the short initial cool down and the large area of effect, Zas' grenade skill is very effective against large crowd of enemy units, for example Dinergates swarms.

Acquisition 指挥官……嗯和资料上的信息一致呢,我是Zastava M21,希望您接下来不会介意我的表现。 Commander... Hmm, this matches the information on the intel. I'm Zastava M21, hope you can approve of my performance from now on.
Introduction 关于我吗?也没什么可说的,就是人类不断贪婪武器的历史中诞生了我而已。Zastava兵工厂在原有的AK系列上改进,将我研发了出来,人类就是靠武器的不断进化,来证明着自己的进化吧。 Regarding me? Nothing much really, I was born somewhere amongst the history of humanity's greed for weapons. Zastava Arms made improvements on the AK series and developed me. Perhaps humanity wishes to prove they are still constantly evolving by evolving their weapons of choice.
Secretary 给武器赋予人性……要我来说人形的这个设定也太不实用了吧。 Giving weapons personalities... I don't think this is very efficient for us Androids.
指挥官工作真勤快啊,稍微偷懒一下我也不会在意哦。 Commander works so hard, I won't mind if you slack off every now and then.
我的指甲涂得不错吧?要不也给指挥官涂一个? My nail polish looks good right? Would you like your nails polished too?
