Description
Russia's largest firearms manufacturer, Izhmash unveiled in February 2012 a prototype of its new Kalashnikov AK-12 assault rifle with improved ergonomics and tactical flexibility. The new assault rifle, dubbed AK-12, is being designed as a basic platform for the development of nearly 20 different modifications of the weapon. The new AK-12 could be adapted for cartridges varying from 5.45x39 mm to 7.62x51 NATO. The state tests of the rifle may begin at the end of 2012 despite the fact that the Russian Defense Ministry has not shown interest so far in the new weapon citing the financial difficulties of the Izhmash company and a huge surplus of AK-74 assault rifles (about 17 million) in the Armed Forces. The 12th Kalashnikov, Izhmash officials said, has a number of features that make it different from the previous series of the rifle. Advanced technology and materials were used for the development of the new weapon, and more than ten new inventions will be used in making various models of the Kalashnikov rifle. The AK-12 may therefore become the basic model for future developments. The AK-12 assault rifle wa presented for the first time to the public in June 2012 at the the defence exhibition in Moscow, Engineer Technologies 2012.
 
Variants
The basic feature of the new rifle is its modularity. It will serve as a basic platform for designing of over 20 modifications of small-arms weapons of various purpose and calibre.
