Possible ReplacmentEdit

It is currently being tested by the Russian Army and is supposed to replace the AK-74M rifle in service. It will have a new interchangable barrel and a new rail system like the American M4 rifle. With its 4 calibers and interchangable parts the AK-12 could become a formidable threat to Russias enemies. But due to economical problems the complete replacment of the AK-74 could be impossible.
