"The RIA 45 Para provides a lighter, shorter barreled version of the RIA 40 for increased mobility."
The RIA 45 Para is basically RIA 40 with lower movement penalty. The 45 Para is better than the RIA 40 because it has a slightly shorter reload time, slightly more damage, and less than 2/3 the movement penalty. (The RIA 40 only beats it in terms of clip size, but that doesn't compensate for its overall inferiority to the 45 Para.)
RIA 45 Para, as aforementioned, is modeled after its linemate. It has a telescopic sight as well. The only things that make it different from its linemate is a hollow buttstock & a shorter barrel.
Difference on Mobile
RIA 45 Para retains most of RIA 40's look. Its slightly shorter barrel is the only difference. Its ammo box looks more a magazine than an ammo box.
"Para" is used in real-life weapons to indicate modifications to the weapon that reduces weight and/or size.
Oddly enough, "para" is Latin for "enlarge", but this weapon is the smallest RIA LMG, similar to RIA 20 Para.
The "para" probably is short for "paratrooper", who would commonly shorten and lighten their weapons.
