Nowadays the major part of the Kalashnikov guns is going for export There is a heavy stocks of the AK-74 at the Russian army storages By the way, it should be modernized by the special packages. According to the army requirements, this special package should be easily installed by any soldier in the field, without having any special knowledge or instruments. And it can be easily done for a very short period of time. A new telescoping stock is installed to AK-74. Ergonomical handle, comfortable cutout and many Picatinny rails, collimating sight, night thermal-imaging pointer, tac-lite system or rifle-attached grenade launcher. In the nearest future, the concern is hoping to get contracts for a new AK-12. Izhevsk gunmakers are sure that AK-12 is also a very simple and sustainable as AK-74, but more comfortable and precise. You can switch a fire mode and it will make it a weapon more comfortable. It’s much easier to shoot with such a weapon. AK-74 with a modernization package is the most popular gun in the Russian army. We got used to shoot this gun long time ago. AK-12 can become a part of the “Ratnick”equipment, it shoots a little bit softer and should be more precise. And this is the latest novelty from the Izhevsk gunmakers, – balanced automatics. It feels like it wasn’t me who was shooting right now. There is no any recoil. On the factory this weapon is called “the gun of the future”, it even doesn’t have a name so far. Balanced automatics made the new Kalashnikov more expensive, difficult and heavy than classic models including AK-12. But it has some advantages, that can interest intelligent services and the Ministry of Defence. When a rifleman is making a shot, apart from the recoil, there is also a flip of the stock Thus the weapon goes away from the firing line, from the target. So we should wait until the weapon comes back to the line and only then to repeat the shot. Precise. But this weapon stays in one position without any motion. But it’s not all about Kalashnikov novelties The concern is going to the market of the military multi-functional complexes. For example, the military remotely-operated modul is being worked out. An operator can shoot with the help of a joystick and a sensor screen. The well-known PK machine gun, caliber 7.62mm, “Cord” gun, caliber 12.7mm, Also the machine gun NSVT might stay, and two bomb-throwers. For each type there is a certain foundation, certain belted feed, and certain patron box. A combat modul can track a target automatically An operator chooses the object for watching but the machine can’t make a decision to destroy the target. Anyway hitting is made by a man. A combat module is made for the armored motocars of “Typhoon” or assault boats, which are also produced by the Kalashnikov concern. We’ve bought the controlling stock of the ‘Rybinsk Verf’ company. this company produces modern cutters for civil purposes and for the military ones as well. A cutter should be equipped with several drones of different types and combat modules. So this is a complex that we worked out ourselves and we’ve already got orders “Zala Aero” company that produces drones is a part of the concern too Electric and petrol, airbone and helicopter types, with a possibility to install thermal imaging unit, video or photo cameras Such drones are already being delivered to the Ministry of Internal Affairs and to the Federal Rescue Service The negotiations about that are conducted with the Ministry of Defence too The army is interested in co-operation with us. They tell us exactly what they want They offer us their technical tasks and we try to meet all their demands The main advantages of our technic are the simplicity of using, mobility, speed I mean the speed of deployment Any complex can be deployed for 15 minutes At the moment the Kalashnikov concern is working out about 40 scientific projects There are guns, pistols, high-precision munition and special equipment There is a goal to completely modernize the whole production process till 2016 to make the company ready to produce any volume of production.
