The completion of state tests of a new submachine gun developed as part of the Vityaz-MO development work (ROC) was reported in the 20th of July last year.

The official name of the weapon: "9 mm Kalashnikov submachine gun PPK-20".
As the developers explained, in the course of work on the new weapon, the ergonomics of the PP and the equipment attached to it were improved, a device for low-noise shooting was introduced into the composition. The reliability of the new PP has been significantly improved compared to the base Vityaz-SN.
Performance characteristics of the submachine gun: PPK-20 length - 640-700 mm, barrel length - 233 mm. Weight, according to the video - 3,65 kg (possibly equipped with a silencer). The magazine is designed for 30 rounds of 9X19 LUGER caliber.
The PPK-20 includes: a muffler, a belt with one-point and two-point fastening, a special bag for carrying magazines, related equipment and cleaning agents.
