    State tests of the new model of Kalashnikov automatic rifles will be held in Russia next year, Izhmash Director General Vladimir Grodetsky said on Tuesday.

    The new model of the legendary assault rifle, the AK-200, is based on the AK-74M and differs in weight (3.8 kilograms/8.4 lbs vs. 3.3 kilograms/7.3 lbs) and the magazine capacity (30, 50, 60 rounds vs. 30).

    The AK-74, a developed version of the Kalashnikov rifle's first model, the AK-47, was introduced in 1974 and used by the Soviet forces during the Afghanistan conflict.

    Must be a marketting strategy, or change in the design. I believe it is the former.

    This is my amateur analysis of the design and construction of the AK-12. In short, unique distinction of AK-12 - this telescopic the buttstock folding and to the right and to the left. In the basis of the shock-and-trigger mechanism AK-12 - shock-and-trigger mechanism of the AK-74. Changed the mounting of the foregrip.
    Some people in Russia think that AK-12 will participate in the new indian tender for the replacement of the INSAS. I thought so too, but for the reasonable opinion of the AK-12 for he will not have time. In the serial production of the promise will go only in 2013.
    At what stage is now the tender? What companies are participating? Where can I read about it?
