Description: The Kalashnikov AK-47 is a family of assault riffles and carbines designed for use by the Soviet Army in the late 1940s. The AK assault riffles have been designed to engage targets at maximum ranges between 500 to 1,000 meters and maximum rates of fire 600 to 900 rounds per minute. The variety of AK family guns comprises 7.62x39 mm (Soviet ammunition), 5.45x39 mm (Soviet) and 5.56x45 mm (NATO ammunition). The S designation (AKS) refers to guns provided with folding stock and the N designation to night vision sight versions (AKN and AKMN). RPK refers to light machine guns derived from the AK assault riffles. The first model, AK-47, was introduced in 1949 and the last models known as the AK 100 series were introduced in 1991. Millions of Kalashnikov AK riffles and carbines have been produced worldwide with and without license from the original manufacturer Izhmash, now Kalashnikov Concern. Despite being the most popular assault riffle produced ever and renowned for their reliability worldwide, the Russian Army took the decision to replace it with the AK-12 family as part of the Radnik dismounted soldier combat system beginning in 2015/2016.

The Kalashnikov AK-101 assault rifle is an individual weapon intended for use by military and law enforcement forces. The assault rifles are equipped with a folding plastic butt and a mounting system to accommodate optical and eye vision devices. The magazine provided with the weapon has a capacity of 30 cartridges. Optional equipment includes a knife/bayonet. The AK-101 assault rifle fires 5.56x45 NATO ammunition at maximum ranges of 1,000 meters. The AK-102 (5.56x45 mm) and AK-105 (5.45x39 mm) are carbine variants and the AK-107 (5.45x39 mm) and AK-108 (5.56x45 mm) are balanced recoil assault riffles.
