The new Russian RPK-16 – a machine gun and an assault rifle in “one bottle”
The leading Russian manufacturer of small arms, the Kalashnikov concern is ready to present another promising development – RPK-16. Already the abbreviation itself says that this is a hand-held machine gun. To this we should add a caliber – 5.45 mm, a volumetric magazine for 96 rounds, which, if necessary, can be fastened to any AK .
Specialists of the concern hope that another feature of the PKK-16 will be appreciated in the Russian Army and other law enforcement agencies – the possibility of changing the trunk. Depending on this, it can be either an easy hand-held machine gun (an elongated trunk) or an assault rifle (trunk shortened).
The novelty will be visible to visitors of the military-technical forum “Army-2016”, which will be held in Moscow from September 6 to 11 , within a few days .
