At the forum “Army-2016” the exposition of the concern “Kalashnikov” was one of the most representative. Among the new products, which will soon be put into service – AK-12 and AK-15 assault rifles in the “break-in”.
They differ from each other in caliber – respectively, 5.45 and 7.62 mm, and from their predecessors – both external design and design.
Practically only the automatic scheme remained unchanged. But serious changes were made to the design of the gas tube, receiver and gas outlet. All this positively affected the accuracy of the shooting.
The increased capabilities of automatic machines can be judged by the fuse-switch of fire regimes. Now there are 4 positions. In addition to automatic and single-handed shooting, the arrow will be available fire for 2 shots, and a special stop under the index finger allows you to switch, without taking your hand off the handle. Both automatic machines on the removable cover of the receiver have Picatinny slats for various sights. Another bar is on the forearm.
The place of obsolete old wooden butts occupied adjustable length plastic attachments. In addition, new AK can be equipped with a bayonet knife, quick-detachable silencer and an underbarrel 40-mm grenade launcher .
