Tarkov Gunsmith Part 15 Mechanic Quest Guide

What used to be Escape from Tarkov's Gunsmith Part 11, is now Gunsmith Part 15. Feast your eyes upon this modern-day monstrosity, the night vision AS VAL. After completing Mechanics Gunsmith Part 14 and reaching level 29, Mechanic will offer you Gunsmith Part 15, where you are requested to modify an AS VAL to meet specific demands. 

The AS VAL is an incredibly unique weapon, designed for special forces units by TsNIITochMash, the Avotmat Specialniy VAL is a silenced automatic rifle with an integral suppressor and is based on the VSS Vintorez platform. The AS VAL was widely used in the early ages of Escape from Tarkov, being the main "meta" weapon from 2016-18, since the implementation of newer and modernized weapons, the usage of the AS VAL has significantly decreased.
