It’s just some insanity, just the conscripts need AEK, and the special forces themselves will choose what is dearer to his soul.

      There will be a late-simplified version, but it is not mediocre either. The only major plus is a more reliable mounting of the receiver cover than previous AKs, the rest can be attributed to customization by and large. Sorry removed the slide delay.

        In addition to the bolt delay, after all, there was a magazine reset and a fuse switch and a shutter knob that could be installed on the left side, all this so reduced the time and reloads and ghosts for battle, it is very unfortunate, as always. The situation is painfully similar to that of the T-72b3 tank, it was removed, it was cheapened here, and this is all life in the end result.

    Well, thank God! And what about the PL-15 pistol? Will we also wait 6 years? Then, then PL-15 + 6 years = 2021?!?!?!?

    I can’t get it anyway, why are there two calibers for combined arms units? 7,62 quite a killer and proven caliber ...

      The ballistic is shitty and the damaging effect of the bullet, the recoil momentum is higher, plus with the same weight 5.45 you can take more. But !!! the energy 7.62x39 is almost 2 times higher than that of 5.45, so even if it flies out, it’s not enough it doesn’t seem to be. well and, of course, you can’t compare the block action with a little pulse. you can’t hide from the brickwork on the brick floor. and most importantly, it punches the rail .......... along laughing

      I agree, yes, and 5.45 is enough to snap back ... but only 7.62 and more seriously fight.

      in difficult terrain, in the mountains, for example, the weight of ammunition already matters.
      and somewhere caliber 5.45 is a real advantage.

    And the sights go to them, or will the machine gun be delivered naked without a body kit?

      I think that there will be few sights. The massive introduction of sights will probably be (if at all) in the distant future.

    I wonder how they will pick up? By what principle is 5,45 or 7,62 mm. will be distributed ... to someone?

    If so, it is not much different from the current one. The initial version of the AK-12 (as pictured in the news) was more interesting.
