They are Full metal jacket shells and are designed to punch through armour, although due to their low power they aren't very reliable at punching through even light armour.

It has the worst armour penetration statistic of any bullet - against Berill-5M, its damage becomes a mere fraction, 15%.

The 9x18mm FMJ is the standard 9x18mm ammunition type in all games. Therefore, it is easily found as most NPCs using 9x18mm weapons will carry the ammunition, and is commonly available from most traders.

Used by the PMm, Fora-12, Viper 5 9x18 and the Noiseless Pistol (PB1s).


  • The Cyrillic letters on the bottom edge read: PM, PMM, APS, PB, FORT-12, AEK-919 "Kashtan", & Bizon indicating the weapons that chamber the cartridge.
  • The text along the bottom reads "non-mercuric, non-corrosive caps". This means the primers for the cartridges are non-corrosive (which corrodes and pits the action and barrel) and do not contain mercury (which is poisonous).
