The Assault kit is the middle ground in all kits. This kit promotes both offensive and defensive play styles, just like their primary weapon -- the Assault Rifle.
The standard weapon of the Assault Kit, the assault rifle, is a versatile weapon that can engage the enemy at any range. Assault rifles can equip a variety of different accessories to fit any situation. Switch to semi-auto, attach a high powered optic, a Bipod and a Heavy Barrel to turn it into a marksman rifle. Or, go full auto, attach a Reflex (RDS), Foregrip, and Suppressor for close quarter battling.
The Assault Kit can be both offensive and defensive. Not just because the versatility of Assault Rifles, but because of the Medic-like gadgets the kit comes with. The default gadgets are the Medic Kit and Defibrillator. These items are used to revive teammates and quickly regenerate health. Of course, the Medic Kit can be switched out for an offensive underbarrel gadget, like the M320 or M26 MASS.

The AEK-971 is a Soviet / Russian select-fire assault rifle made by the Kovrov Machinebuilding Plant in the 1980s. It fires the 5.45x39mm WP cartridge. Like all Assault Rifles in BF3, it can reach out to long ranges.
A versatile weapon, its strengths shine in its controllable recoil, open iron sights, and most importantly, a 3 round burst firing mode. This allows for effective and controlled shots, making quick work of any mid range foes. This mode is best used with a mid range scope, allowing the crosshairs stay on target after each shot. As with other 3 round burst weapons, timing the trigger pulls correctly will have the weapon fire full auto. Also, there are ten full trigger pulls of 3 rounds each, plus one extra round from a fully loaded gun.
The weakness of the AEK comes from its painfully slow reload, especially from a dry reload. This can make fighting a long range target a pain, due to the long amount of time required to put in a new magazine
