The Russian army received more than 35 thousand AK-12 assault rifles under the 2020 contract. This was announced by a representative of the state corporation "Rostec".

This 5,45 mm caliber assault rifle is a promising individual rifle weapon the Russian army and other law enforcement agencies, with greater combat effectiveness, versatility, accuracy and accuracy of fire

          No, not a Jew, but I will also answer a question with a question:

          - Where did you see the colors (flags) TWO unrecognized republics, if one of them is the well-known flag of the Russian Empire, used in the Republic of Ingushetia from June 11 (June 23), 1858 to April 29 (May 11), 1896 (the so-called "Imperial flag") ???

        Please indicate by what signs you "suddenly" realized that it was AEK? Are you firmly convinced? There was also a Kalash version with a similar trigger. In the photo you have in the comments by the way, exactly another machine with a different trigger.

        And in general, a bunch of publications on this topic are more like fabulous pictures. :(

    Question: what about the body kit for the machine? Sights, tactical arms, butts, forends, etc. Who will give all this good and to whom?
    If the ordinary conscript will have AK-12, then who will allow him to tune the AK, who will issue the body kit?
    If we are talking about special equipment, like Alpha, then these guys buy foreign body kits for AK. They do not need AK-12.
    The contract army remains. And again, with a kit, whether they will give, which, etc.

    utter lies - the ak-12 was never developed in the warrior program. they shoved him in the last carriage instead of AEK, so as not to be left without dough.
    The changes in the machine are really good, but they have been asking for this for 30 years and not everything has been done !!!
    In fact, there are no attempts to improve the potential of what Kalashnikov developed almost a century ago.

        Kalashnikov thought up the design by the year 46. It was far from state testing and acceptance into armament, but all ideas were already there. Now is the year 2020. 2020-1946 = 74 years. Do you think that it was not worth changing anything fundamentally during this time?

      Which changes??? Telescopic stock ??? Forend with straps ??? A hole in the handle for an oil can and a pencil case?) "Rigidly" fixed receiver cover, with a diopter sight and a magazine with windows?) Wow ... Colossal changes. In the civilian market, from all Vyatskiye Polyana, there have long been samples of AK-like in the basic configuration with all the bells and whistles that the AK-12 has, but only on the basis of the AK-74. AND THE PRICE IS WITHIN 60T.R. Tell these smart guys from the Moscow Region and the Kalashnikov concern that visiting the AK-74 with a cheap Chinese copy of the body kit from Fab Defense, calling this creation a nanotechnological AK-12 is not creating a new assault rifle !!!

    The article says about the adoption of 4 automatic weapons - two calibers and two different systems ... And what about the supply of cartridges, warrant officers will need to be very careful with the indexes and brands of automatic machines in part (and with the marking of boxes in district warehouses) or take ammunition equally - and those (7,62) and those (5,45). The question is - where will the AK-74M go?

        Then the AK-74M will "compete" with the Kalashnikov Concern. The market for "legal" weapons is chock-full of "goods". Until there is a major hot war, the "Kalashnikov Concern" has nowhere to put its "goods" (they are hardly pushing a batch of AK to India and may build another AK plant). Can sell "on the civilian market" ...? - those who have a Military ID and have no "jambs" before the Law.

            "The logic of the bosses" is not comprehensible to ordinary people. Summoning a "yesterday's schoolboy" at the age of 18 and giving him AK, PKM, SVD ... and so on and so on - you can, let him defend his Motherland, he is already an adult, and upon returning to "civilian life" - nothing is possible ... "not mature enough". My opinion is that it is allowed to buy a car, there are no violations of the law, in sound mind and memory, I gave a debt to the Motherland - allow me to buy a combat rifle, with enrollment in the militia reserve - at the first call of the military enlistment office, come to the collection point with the AK and further according to circumstances ...

            Short-barrels are really banned, the rest is not so. A hunting ticket is simply obtained via the Internet, you will have to run a little more for a firearm permit (collect certificates that he is not a nutcase and not a drunkard, take courses where they will tell you about weapons legislation, how to save someone you shot and let you shoot from Margolin once ). After that, you can buy a smoothbore. I recommend - Vepr. This is an alteration of the PKK for 12 gauge and legal requirements (no bursts, 10 rounds maximum in the store). After 5 years (all the same, collecting certificates again) you will be able to buy a rifled AK: the same Saiga (KK Saiga carbine 5,45x39, for example - AK in its pure form, but they may not be allowed to hunt with it - the caliber is too small). Again, no queues and 10 rounds. But check the quality: everything is sad at Izhevsk, at Vyatskiye glades it is better, but take very carefully too. For the military, a frank marriage of PZ does not allow (probably), but here ... I took a Tiger for myself (this is a civilian SVD with rifling, like the "old" SVD (before adaptation to a heavy bullet) and without an influx for a bayonet).

    Regarding some comments that the Kalashnikov concern is mediocre - I want to invite you to this video. And of course I want it to be watched by specialists who held the AK in their hands hundreds of times.

    Why this does not go to the troops is an open question. Outpourings that - "expensive and difficult for a conscript" - go by. Once the bow, arrows, sword and shield were difficult for the man-apes, but still mastered. Video of 2016.

      Two assholes. One Kirisenko, the ideological inspirer of AK-12, PL-14/15 and microwave oven. The first failed the reliability tests and only the external alteration of the AK-74 into the current AK-12 saved the concern from universal shame. PL-14/15 is useless and failed "Glock's killer", a lot of money has been thrown in, reliability has not been achieved, the army and special forces are not needed. Microwave is generally not clear what and why. The second - from the former, registered as "experts". For money, he will advertise at least a toilet bowl, just to shoot.

        Right!) And from the first to the last word. Moreover, the kit is a cheap copy of some Fab Defense.
        Why Kalashnikovs cannot take and simply give the army what others are shoving into the civilian market. But there for 50 - 70 tons R. You can buy in the basic configuration the same AK-74 with the same telescopic butt, with a bunch of slats on the forend and the cover of the SK, which is rigidly fixed to the receiver, etc. Plus will go bolt delay and fire translator on both sides !!!!!

    In my humble and non-objective opinion, weapons should not only be functional, but also beautiful. Looking at this AK-12 product, I do not experience any positive aesthetic emotions that I experience when looking at, for example, the AK-74M, SVD, APS, PL-14, VSS Vintorez, RPD, PP-19 Vityaz, etc. Yes, probably the aesthetics are not important and the taste and color of all the markers are different, but the soldier must love his weapon, but this clumsy and angular product does not cause a desire to love him.

    Why on the trunk below the ledges? After all, they will cling to foreign objects ... And in general, the fewer protrusions on the weapon, the less dirt accumulates on them and the easier it is to clean it.
