Unusual AK: the last squeak of the Hungarian military-industrial complex

The media resource of the national weapons concern "Kalashnikov" continues a series of issues devoted to modifications of the world-famous machine gun.

В first release The authors told about the Hungarian "relatives" of "Kalashnikov" - AKM-63 and AK-55. Second series was dedicated to AMD-65 and AMP-69 machines and their features.

The third issue, which is the final on the topic of the Hungarian AK, will tell you about AK-63 and NGV machines.

By the beginning of the 70s, Hungary had filled its Armed Forces with its own production machines. These were mostly AMD-65 and AK-55. There was a question about the export of manufactured weapons. The Hungarians decided to move away from their own technical solutions, and began to produce an automatic machine that was practically no different from the classic AKM. They became the AK-63, which is still widely used in military conflicts around the world, and is in service with the Hungarian army.

    Thank you for the material, it once again proves that only Kalashnikovsky Kalashnikov was real, Hungarians didn’t deliver crafts on export, they sold only classics, apparently buyers didn’t really take masterpieces of Hungarian design ideas

        Now Hungarian trunks at barmalei "emerge"

        why should they "pop up"? out in Afghanistan, for example, they use them in full

    In my first issue “about the Hungarians”, in my opinion, a “rifle” grenade was mentioned ... but not only Hungarians, but also Poles adapted the Kalashnikov rifle for firing “rifle” grenades ... The Poles were armed with an 20-mm muzzle attachment and 54-mm (cumulative), 46-mm (fragmentation) "rifle" grenades; as well as an 10-charging store under ,, idle ,, cartridges. The Yugoslavs were also “fired” ...
