Russia’s Kalashnikov Concern presented the AK-15 assault rifle at the Army 2016 defence exhibition held outside Moscow in September. It has a rate of fire of 700 rounds per minute, which is 50 rounds faster than that of the AK-74M. The AK15 brandishes a Picatinny rail for various devices, a telescopic-type buttstock, and a pistol-type grip. The magazine-opening cover, foregrip, and gas tube are modified to ratch up the rifle’s grouping of shots and ergonomics.
The AK-15 was developed under the Ratnik program with aim to replace the AK-103.
