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 AK-74M is a 5.45x39 mm assault riffle capable of a maximum rate of fire of 650 rounds per minute and a maximum effective range of 1,000 meters with an increased accuracy of 50-percent at a distance of up to 300 meters over previous models. The AK-74M also features a 40mm grenade launcher, low noise shooting equipment and a bayonet as well as modern optoelectronic and laser aiming devices. The Russian Army first showcased the modernized AK-74M during the 70th Victory Day parade in Moscow on May 9, 2015.
