“Rook”, “Tiger”, “Typhoon”. Top 10 Airborne Weapons Spotted in Kazakhstan

While participating in the CSTO mission on the territory of Kazakhstan, the Airborne Forces of the Russian Federation were armed with their standard weapons. Both new and time-tested.

Kalashnikov assault rifle AK-12 caliber 5.45 mm. On today, this is the most advanced version of the legendary weapon. The main differences from predecessors: the receiver cover and forearm are equipped with Picatinny rails for mounting the front handle, flashlight, laser pointer, etc. The fuse, also known as the translator of fire modes, has 4 positions (fuse —AB (automatic fire)                                   ;Length  butt made of impact-resistant plastic. Magazines are equipped with transparent inserts through which you can see how many rounds you have left.

RMB — modernized Kalashnikov machine gun. In difference from machine gun, in machine-gun theme, the paratroopers turned out to be conservative people. Despite the presence of a more modern Pecheneg machine gun in the troops, they remained faithful to the weapon, whose basic modification was adopted for service in 1961 g. PKM has a caliber of 7.62mm and is rightly considered one of the best machine guns in the world in simplicity and reliability.
