    I cant tell, is the receiver + handguard/shroud a single piece?

    It also looks like a 12 gauge muzzle brake and magazine.

    Hated what? The rifle you see is not a Kalashnikov, but a Dragunov...

    Had to look close to even tell that the new AK-74M and the AK-15 were two different rifles (before I looked at the gas block portions). Interesting. So, which one is relevant to Ratnik and the rifle replacement? The AK-12 or the AK-15?

    Keep in mind that ratnik is a soldier system used by many branches of the military so it will suit weapons from pistols to machine guns and everything in between.

    Sorry, you'll have to excuse my American way of thinking. The last time we did a soldier systems program that included multiple weapons was OICW, if I'm not mistaken. I'm forgetting to look at Ratnik that way, instead of as a rifle competition.

    Does anybody know what kind of Picatinny-mounted rear iron sight is on the AK-12 / AK-400? The one that was used in the recent event.

    RPK-style detachable IRS.

    It's supposed to be spring loaded, but I really doubt it, it just looks tightened up.

    There's a PBS-1 sight that was developed for export.

    I'm looking for the entire mount that the leaf is in, as well. I really would like to know if and where one can be individually purchased. Quite honestly, it would be a big hit in the U.S. considering the Texas Weapon Systems Dog-Leg railed top-cover mounts that replace the old sight leaf entirely. You lose the range [and windage, if using an RPK leaf] adjustment by mounting it to the trunnion.

    Mount is made by Izhmash, and as such you can't exactly import it to the US. So try and see if it's possible to have it in Europe and then have some one trace it to you in America.

    So... no more prototypes, i must say i really miss some features of the "old AK 12", can't believe that they gave up like that

    A545 looks pretty awesome, i'm just not a fan of the buttstock.

    BTW what do you think about these holographic sights?

    The Valdai VPK-210/230 look as good as anything for brief engagements and short term deployments. But I'm very concerned with the log strain they will build (they work on batteries) for permanent use. The Obzor option the Russian forces have for now looks far superior from that point of view. But it's ok, testing will help get the product better.

    A545 can be retro-fitted with the KK stock they shown on he SVK rifle. That would be amazing.

    I would suspect with all their new gear Ratnik 3 operators will need lots of batteries and a charging plugin station on the vehicle that transports them around in combat...

    The plugin station for BMS and TBMS is normal, but here we're speaking of disposable batteries, which are a PITA. While with self-illuminated systems you gain both sustainability and performance over the opposing forces.
