In the Chinese media: Everyone talks about Russia's hypersonic weapons, but few remember the appearance of the AK-12 assault rifle among Russian infantrymen

218

The Chinese press is discussing the renewal of the rifle weapons in the Russian army. The observer of the Sohu information resource is considering the phased rearmament of the Russian Armed Forces from the AK-74 assault rifle to the AK-12 assault rifle. At the same time, the Chinese journalist writes that today, speaking about the Russian army, the issue of hypersonic missiles and the modernization of the nuclear arsenal is most often raised, but at the same time "modernization, which can radically affect the actions of infantry units on the battlefield, is overlooked."


Chinese Sohu:

The AK-12 assault rifle is a full-fledged update of the Kalashnikov assault rifle line. In many of its characteristics and ease of use, it surpasses the AK-74 assault rifle. The assault rifle received a pistol grip, a modular multi-position buttstock, and Picatinny rails.

At the same time, the Chinese author draws attention to the fact that the AK-12 has many options, including chambered for the NATO caliber - 5,56x45 mm. According to the author of the article in the Sohu material, this can provide opportunities not only for the supply of such weapons to those countries where they previously preferred NATO-type weapons, but also for the use of captured ammunition on the battlefield.

The Chinese author notes that the new assault rifle is now being supplied "to both conventional infantry units" and to special forces, which clearly speaks of its versatility and effectiveness. Also, the emphasis is on the fact that such small arms were created and modified taking into account the best combat experience - in the Syrian Arab Republic.

Sohu:

The AK-12 outperforms its predecessor, the AK-74, in a number of parameters, including such important as firing accuracy.

In Chinese media:

Everyone talks about Russia's hypersonic weapons, but few remember that the Russian infantrymen had an AK-12 assault rifle. And this is an important update.

The Chinese press notes that if earlier in relation to machine guns for infantry in Russia (USSR), when they were designed, "sniper" accuracy was, to put it mildly, not in the first place, now "even an ordinary infantryman has a weapon that is not only reliable, but and significantly more accurate than the previous versions.

    Overrated. AK-12 is an ordinary Kalashoid with a Picatinny rail. The design and cartridge have not changed, the accuracy is the same.

        Particularly impressive is the mention of the pistol grip ... is this something new in the Kalashnikov system? laughing

            The fact that this is a custom article of the Kalashnikov concern speaks for itself. You cannot praise yourself, no one will. By the way, this is not the first time I notice. The Ministry of Defense did not want to take him, he did not pass from them, but no, they were in advance with someone.

              Minus, you do not agree that the article is "advertising", so look who wrote it at the bottom of the article. Or do you disagree that the Russian Ministry of Defense did not want to take the machine gun even for testing, and not something for armament? So flip through previously written articles on this topic, and the opinions of experts. It is not to me to make claims, I am just stating a fact. Or do you think that there could be no "hurry" in the MO? Then you are naive. Or maybe you are just hats?

After all, AKM is an improved AK47 and AK74 is the same AKM only under a different cartridge, AK 74M is the same AK74 only in plastic. Did I understand you correctly ?

            We are not talking about "other minor changes", but fundamental design differences that make it possible to speak of the AK-12 as a weapon capable of "dramatically influencing the actions of infantry units on the battlefield" in comparison with the previous model.

                  There are precedents, but there is a really strong leap here, in comparison with the 100 and 200 series, although those machine guns are more popular among the troops than 12, but this may be for now

                    In general, I have a strong impression that among the commentators, not only are the military a minority, but many have not served at all. In fact, there are no fundamental differences, they have upgraded a little, the ergonomics have been increased, and perhaps that's all. You can easily do without all these bars and collimators, but without the skills of good shooting and possession of an object, no upgrade will help. Some political officers (all in the party struggle for a piece of bacon) of the rear services.))

            1. I did not notice any changes in the fixing of the return spring, although the expert said about it.
            2. In previous AKs, cleaning the barrel was carried out using a cleaning rod and a case cover (so as not to rub the rifling of the barrel with a cleaning rod). The expert did not mention the device centering the ramrod on the barrel. Is it missing? Or is it incompetence?

          In the photo, the first version of the AK-12 Zlobin, the AK-12 adopted for service is not the same.
          There are significant differences, they are simply not visible to ordinary people - a suspended barrel, and the ability to install and remove sights without constant zeroing, a longer sighting line (that this alone already increases the accuracy of shooting). I'm not even talking about the adjustable butt. If only the appearance is important for you - they say, everything was weighed, then for the end user (that is, for practitioners, not couch warriors), these are far from cosmetic changes, but significant ones.

                      It doesn't count once. Since I do not believe that in the army you were shooting from the hip all the time. You can, of course, indulge in this by shooting like in a movie, but this does not mean that the butt is not needed.

                        The final rzhu.) You here are direct "superwaffe" which is what you saw, and not the usual design of the Kalash, which made improvements and that's it. Well, we didn't have armored vehicles)). I gave an example. that you can get there without an improved butt, with an improved one, it will probably be more convenient, but this is not new design, but the old one, with improvements, and that's it. Something like this.

                        Not new. And not a "superwafe", but a completely modern machine that meets modern requirements. Just don’t mean that you yourself can weight the AK-74M. Firstly, you will not be able to lengthen the sighting line and set the diopter by any tuning, and secondly, hang out the barrel. Thirdly, not a single conscript will weigh the machine gun assigned to him.
                        And where did you see, in the army of which country in the world, in service, as an army machine gun, some fundamentally new designs / machine guns? Yes, they simply do not exist. All are in the testing stage, or have been adopted by some separate units. Even the same Americans, announcing a competition to replace the M-4, eventually came to the Zig-Sauer Ministry of Agriculture. Which is the modernization of AR systems. There is nothing fundamentally new there. This is an AR system with improvements to meet modern requirements.

                        What about Steyr AUG? Their modular structure and bullpup scheme, widespread use of plastic? It was adopted by Austria back in 1977. then in Australia in 1989, it is also used in one way or another in Argentina, Bulgaria, Bolivia, Brazil, England, Gambia, Germany, and 16 more countries around the world.

                        So where is it new? 35 years of construction. It's like saying that the AK-74 is a new assault rifle. Was once an original design, but it is not new!

                        And I do not say that it is "new")) I say that it is fundamentally different, because for me, in principle, the AK-74 is the development of the AK-47, and the Steyu AUG is different and new for that period. And AK-12 and AK-15, this is just a development of the AK-47 scheme, with new technologies and improved performance, which should have been improved yesterday, but there was no money for this.

                        So AR-15/18 is also fundamentally different. All the difference with AR systems is only in the layout (which, by the way, is far from new, they experimented with it back in the 30s of the last century), but in a replaceable barrel. Everything.
                        However, you consider AUG to be a new technology, while the AR system is not. It's called double standards.
                        RPK-16, for example, is modular in this regard. So what? For some reason you don’t consider it a new technology.

                        And then some people made such a fuss, as if it was some kind of new design. And it's all the same, better, more convenient, but still the same.))


                        Not a new design, but a new generation of AK. I say it again, you name me NEW designs that are in service. AUG is not new. This is a different system, as well as the AR system, or HK roller-shaped type G-3, or FN FAL, these are all fundamentally different systems... But at the same time, no one follows the path of creating NEW systems, everyone is modernizing the old systems.

The long sighting line is also a dramatic change for the Soviet / Russian school of small arms. It may be small things for you, but these are dramatic changes.

                        That is, if necessary, the user of the AK-12 will not have to dance with a tambourine in order to install on his machine, even corny, the same collimator that comes with it, by the way, a couple of minutes and you're done.

          You have shown an image of an early version of the AK-12. The final version is closer to the AK-74.
          Regarding the differences from the old AK. They are certainly not radical - the automation is preserved. Buttstock with adjustable length, non-detachable gas tube (removable plug for front cleaning), new muzzle brake-flash suppressor, modified form of fuse translator, added firing mode with a shooting accuracy does not come into contact with the barrel), piccatini strips.

        Did you have to hold it in your hands? And disassemble and reassemble?

        I had to. And hold, and disassemble, assemble, and conduct test shots.
        The opinion about the AK-12/15 was as follows - the assault rifle has definitely not become more accurate and more reliable than the AK-74M. Moreover, a number of design changes are striking, because they made the operation of the machine less convenient than the AK-74M.

        This is a pencil case located in the butt cavity. Three-link screw-on cleaning rod, the links of which fix the accessory: brush, wiper, drift and screwdriver wrench. To get to any element, it is necessary to unscrew at least two links of the cleaning rod - otherwise, apart from the punch, you cannot remove other accessories.
        By the way, a pistol grip oiler and a pencil case from a buttstock when firing from the GP-25/30 easily fly away in unpredictable directions. Sometimes irrevocably.
        These are the most harmless "shoals", in reality there are many more. You can't describe everything in the comments.

      Not quite, a lot has already been said about this, and that’s not the point; the requirements for mass infantry weapons are completely different, to which they correspond, moreover, now and in the future. TT and PPS are still great weapons, and AKS and AVT-40 are still in the top of the most expensive and desirable ones today.

    And how many times it has been said - it is not necessary to invent a new barrel, sawing the state loot, but to deal with the quality of gross army cartridges! With existing shitty ones - no heap increase will work. And with decent, not even mattress, but at least Serbian - and old models have very decent performance .. Checked .. In general - IMHO another window dressing and struggle of Nanai boys.

All the same, only the collimator can be put on the bar, the optics are already floating when the lid is opened. Checked. A detachable ramrod is generally nonsense, if the sleeve blows, you get bogged down to collect it before knocking it out. A non-removable gas pipe is generally evil - it is much more inconvenient to clean. And more - there is nothing new there. Well - except that the fuse is more convenient, but even then - instead of the old one, it is easily put. For example, I put ..

        And this is - according to your type, a new model, such as deeply advanced ???

          Well, all the same, no. The AK12 is essentially an improved version of the AK74M with a new tank destroyer and a "free hanging" barrel (which improves shooting accuracy).

            Can someone explain to me - why is there a hanging barrel on an automatic weapon? what This is not a chatterbox for you .. bully

            But - they say that, for accuracy, the barrel is not pressed but on the pins. Great - when will the pins come loose? And they - will blabber.

          ahah you contradict yourself. The same AKM is a slightly improved AK 47, and AK74 is the same AKM only under a different cartridge, and according to your logic, AK 74M is just the same AK74 only in plastic. And for some reason it was all new models, but then something is wrong. Let them call ak 47A7 so it will be better? You forgot to write about the barrel hanging, increasing the sighting line. does it improve shooting performance?

                    Okay - for woodpeckers I will explain in more detail .. A suspended trunk is needed on long and thick trunks, so as not to interfere with the correct vibration of these when fired. Thin trunks - it is better to pour tightly into the stock, the so-called bedding. Now explain - what relation can barrel vibration have to rapid firing from automatic weapons? This is not a bolt from which you once fired and pull the bolt, here the automation affects the flight of the bullet by orders of magnitude more than the vibration of the barrel when it passes. Plus - shooting from unstable positions when hand shake and the wrong tab are affected.
                    Well - and on the feijoa hung out the trunk on an army machine gun? So far - intelligible?

                    Then. What is a hang out trunk? This is to attach the stock with only one end to the receiver. Everything else is profanity. I hope - no need to explain how this affects the strength of the structure? But the machine is used not only at the training ground .. So far, everything is clear?

                    Extension of the aiming line. Immediately you can see a person who is not able to shoot. It's good when you take one shot slowly. For example, a sniper, or hunting. If you shoot offhand at different targets, then the shorter the aiming line, the easier it is to transfer the fire. What is more important for an army machine gun? Or do you think Kalashnikov is stupid, since he originally made exactly the same sights on the AK?

                    Why is the collimator made? To shorten the aiming line as much as possible, reducing it to two points. Precisely for high-speed offhand shooting.

                    Ever seen replacement bullet barrels for hunting smoothbore? Duc - look at the picture and think, why are people doing this? Especially take a look at the sights .. Maybe - then finally you will insect?

                        OK. Then the question. How much does the TR-3 weigh and the AKM (Saiga 7.62) or AK-74M (Saiga 5.45) weighed to the same condition? And how much does it cost to tune the Saiga to the state of TR-3? Given that, for example, Saiga 5.45 isp. 03 costs 44-45K, and TR-3 5.45 63 K. That is, the difference there is only 20K. And tuning will obviously be more expensive.

                        Well, I drank the dough and there is. AK-74 was - for the ARMY - better than this fashionable craft
                        Let's start with the fact that the AK-12 ... has become TWICE more expensive than the AK-74M
                        Has it gotten even 5% better? No
                        Yes, there are many minor cosmetic changes and one major one - changing the type of sight. Taking into account the fact that in Russian culture this type of scopes was almost never existed before, the idea is doubtful once, and it was implemented incorrectly two times. The sight itself is made badly - there is only one aperture hole, for all distances. Whereas for short-range shooting it would be necessary more than there is, and for far-off shooting - less than there is. As in the standard - AR-15. The sight bar, where the aperture is located, is movable in the horizontal plane, which gives an oval hole at some distances. And the length of the sighting line did not increase significantly - the rear sight moved to the back of the cover - but also the front sight on the gas outlet. That for that. In general, the sight is very controversial, I can't say that it is really bad, but I don't see any advantages either.

                        Cosmetic solutions? yes, your logic is clear to me, it was necessary to do ak 47 so far, you see, they have arranged new models here to create. And yes, since you are such an expert, tell me how much the model of the same AKM or AK 74 was brought to mind. The main task for the AK12 constructs was to create a model so that modern sights could be put on it, etc. , without increasing the weight of the weapon, improve the usability. What they actually did.

                        Once again - pay attention to WHERE the rear sight is located on the bullet barrel. After all, it could easily have been moved in order to lengthen the line? But no - he is where he is. For the same reasons as on the AKM.

                        Do you even see the difference between a rifled barrel and a Lancaster? Apparently not at all. And then, this is if we are talking about 155-20, and not about a simple 155th. There is generally a smooth barrel. And it makes no sense to make some kind of long sighting line there.

The reason is that each time the scope was disassembled and reassembled, the scope would shift slightly. With clear results for shooting accuracy.

        There was a similar mount on Vepr-12. From there they pulled it off. You can't put optics on it. STP still floats .. The version with the top cover is fundamentally not suitable for attaching sights, except perhaps collimators. As you do not try to fix this cover .. Design feature. That is why - when the Union was on the side bar and stopped - albeit harder, but reliable.

          There was a similar mount on Vepr-12. From there they pulled it off.

          Well, let's put it even earlier, there was noticeable backlash on the AKS-74u, however, the shortening did not really interfere, however, the claim for the backlash was not to the hinge, but to the lid retainer, on the AK-12 that the hinge and the retainer look noticeably more solid. How on the Vepr, I don't know.

          only the weapon becomes heavier (by 800 grams, i.e. 4,4 kg weighs while the AK-12 weighs 3,5 kg, i.e. lighter than the Ak-74M by 100 grams) and unreliable due to the mass of adapters, etc. and so on .. Not to mention that "as Urzhumtsev said, the accuracy of the ak-12 in relation to the ak-74 is 20% better." everything's Alright..

Moreover - when shooting not lying on the range. Well this is not a bolt from the stop. Your banal hand shake will affect much more. I'm not talking about other factors, like shutter movement, etc.

              In the case of the previous machine guns, during the turn, the first shot went into the target, and at the next, the machine gun lifted a little and led to dispersion. Now this is not the case, where you aim, and the first and subsequent shots go there.

Once again - is it better for a modern soldier with an AK-74 or AK-12? What is more convenient, ergonomic and more in line with modern realities ?? How many moans there were about the unregulated stock, the absence of Picatinny rails, and so on and so forth. So they took a worthy replacement for the old man.

          And how much is your "new rifle" worth? Pure body kit. And how much is the carbine itself in stock? I suspect that the tuning did not come out cheaply - the butt is 10-15K, the forend with a pad is also 10-15 K, the handle is 1-3 K., the pistol grip, the dovetail with slats, the belt. I think about 40-50K all the tuning came out. Plus the carbine itself is 40-50 K. Plus the weight has grown significantly. And the stock AK-12 already has all your tuning and costs (civilian version) 62K. So nobody needs your "patent" for free :)

        Pro to clean on time. I had a case on a business trip. Upon returning to the base camp and the completion of the promises of "distribution of orders and medals" for a good check of the entrusted weapons and military equipment, etc., but everything is in place, cleaning and maintenance were not postponed for joy. We serve, I look after my platoon, and next to me a soldier strokes an AK-74M. I ask ...? He answers that he did not understand, he does not understand! He has this thing not moving (bolt carrier). I ask - how did you load, unload, inspect, fire? When did it jam? He replies that this has already been given. In short, I tore this frame out of the box for him - the gas piston was tightly bound to the tube, no soaking helped. He took a small tool with him on a business trip just in case (something always has to be used), including old Soviet files, gave it to the soldier and showed him what needed to be cleaned. The conglomerate has mastered the file, but there is not a single annular groove on the piston, only traces are all in small shells. I give the command to everyone to remove the bolt carrier and the piston for inspection - a third of the battery of grooves on the piston or not at all or their traces, some pistons are slightly conical in shape. But they all retained the operability of the automatics, no one knows what kind of shot there was. All chrome plating is preserved satisfactorily - that is, such a piston design is from the factory. In general, the case was completed by a small skin and the machine started working like a clock. Yes, the gas pipe also had to be cut, but the integrity was preserved. Here is an example of hot corrosion in an aggressive environment and not timely maintenance, lack of proper control. But this is a war, albeit a small one. I was just lucky to calculate that I didn't have to use small arms, the crews were already three to four people, and there were three installations in the battery and there was a lot of work, not up to the machine gun (the 2C3 loaders really had their hands "below the knees"), but they were so lucky not all, and minus one barrel - this is fraught with the defense of the ACS, especially in urban areas.
        The conclusion is clear.

          But seriously, the armies are no longer what they were twenty years ago and the infantry chains of "massive" armies do not go into an open field to attack under enemy fire, tactics have changed, and fundamentally, therefore, a modern army needs modern weapons, and not what was twenty, and even more so fifty years ago. No one will send conscripts into a real battle, this is the work of contract soldiers, for this exoskeletons stuffed with electronics have already been developed, and with such equipment the old Kalashnikov looks archaic.

        but ... to operate an ancient, by technical standards platform, in my opinion, is not the best option for an army claiming the title of advanced

        AR-15, AR-18 are also ancient platforms - the USA and NATO operate, and the Germans also make their new trunks on them.

                So, according to your logic, you should have stayed with the AK-47? :) Something I do not understand you. Almost all, as you put it, the "advanced" armies of the world are armed with old platforms, which are modernized to modern requirements. Name the armies of the world with fundamentally new "platforms"? Only 2 armies come to mind (FAMAS, like AUG, cannot be called fundamentally new "platforms" (automatic weapons) - developments of the 70s of the last century) - Israel and Germany. For Tavor I will not say (although the layout scheme is also old - bullpup was invented back in the 30s of the 20th century), I'm not sure, but the G-36 is nothing more than a modernized old "platform" AR-18. Tavor, judging by the description, is also a variation of the AR-18. So, what do you think is a modern platform?
                There is no need to grovel about AEK - AEK is in no way suitable for an army machine gun. For the Special Forces, yes, but not as an army machine gun.

                  In total, it was necessary to release the lightest collimator to the AK-74 on the lightest and smallest side bracket, move the stock folding unit to the right (so that the stock does not interfere with the collimator) and add a new fuse with a pad. ALL

    talk about the hypersonic weapons of Russia, but few people remember the appearance of the AK-12 assault rifle among the Russian infantrymen

    And rightly so. These are, as it were, completely incomparable things. An increase in the performance characteristics of the individual even by 20-30%, in principle, does not change anything in the strategic alignment. Unlike hypersonic weapons, which disastrously shift the balance of offensive weapons and air defense / missile defense.
    This is by analogy - if you have a machine gun, then the quality and size of the knife does not play anymore.

    AK-12 is an ordinary Kalashoid with a Picatinny rail.

    Did you have to hold it in your hands? And disassemble and reassemble?

    Does assembly / disassembly greatly affect accuracy? I have had a lot of things to hold in my hands. Any Kalashoid, except the 108th, will have a barrel toss. Because of the piston, which creates moment with the shoulder. From the machine, the accuracy of both AKM and AK-74 is practically the same, although there are different cartridges. The AK-12 is fundamentally no different.

      Presumably, when creating the AK-12, computer modeling was widely used, that is, different variants of combinations of masses and sizes of moving parts of automation were worked out. , because it is known that even a slight change in the mechanism significantly changes the nature of the firing, for example, a change in the parameters of the bolt spring.If earlier, when creating the first AK, designers relied on their intuition and experience, today modeling allows you to sort through many options and choose the optimal one. I would clean it up, you will torture yourself to pick out the dirt

    The issue of a radical transformation of modern combat automatic weapons can be solved by modernizing the Kalashnikov assault rifle for a caseless shot. The solution to this problem lies in the possibility of creating devices for effective cooling of the barrel and chamber during automatic firing. It is up to the specialists of the Kalashnikov concern, who are delaying the solution of this problem.

    The rifle in the modern world is no longer so much a weapon that gives advantages, but rather an object of close self-defense of the military during hostilities.
    The Americans, for example, have a lot of complaints about the M4, but they are in no hurry to change it, because this does not affect anything.
    Therefore, they did the right thing, that at this stage they did not make significant changes to the AK design, limiting themselves to light ergonomics and gadgets.
    The real weapon of the battlefield of the future will appear when infantry units can use it to hit a wide range of targets and solve tactical tasks of a much larger scale.
    For example, hitting drones, armored vehicles, destroying structures, conducting accurate and effective fire on manpower for kilometers and from a closed position.
