AK-12 has been in service for 4 years and is part of the Ratnik equipment kit. Today, the 5.45 mm AK-12 Kalashnikov is the standard service assault rifle of infantry and other units of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.
Andrey Lushnikov, Head of Department of Combat Small Arms of the Kalashnikov Design and Technology Center, will answer the key questions about AK-12.
• What were the objectives of its development?
• How did the feedback from the troops affect the design of the rifle?
• Why are the windows located in the magazine front part, and not in its back?
• Is it possible to introduce an ambidextrous selector/safety switch on AK-12?
