    TSNIITOCHMASH (Central Research Institute Of Precision Engineering) has developed a new collimator sight with unique characteristics.

    The Central Research Institute of Precision Engineering of the State Corporation Rostec has developed a new collimator sight PKM 75 with unique characteristics of accuracy and energy consumption. The product will increase the accuracy of shooting at moving targets, is compatible with night vision sights and surpasses foreign developments presented on the arms market.

    In modern collimator sights, instead of the reticle, a special mark is used - the "dot" mark, the accuracy of which is measured in fractions of a degree - angular minutes. The accuracy of aiming and shooting depends on the size of the point. Unlike its existing counterparts with a two-minute sighting mark, the new sight has the smallest "dot" mark with a size of just one angular minute. This will significantly increase the accuracy of the weapon and allow you to shoot from a greater distance.

    Another feature is the record time of continuous operation without replacing batteries, exceeding 50,000 hours. This is the first domestic sight that can use high-capacity lithium batteries.

    "The sight is designed for installation on small arms equipped with a special mount - Picatinny rail, for example, on all models of the Kalashnikov assault rifles, special small arms such as Vintorez, Val and assault rifles. The development will increase the accuracy of shooting, especially at long distances. The product exceeds the level of foreign collimator sights, including those used by NATO. The novelty has already passed the stage of preliminary tests and will be demonstrated to specialists of law enforcement agencies at the International Military-Technical Forum "Army-2021", - said the Rostec weapons cluster.

    The sight is compatible with night vision devices of all generations, can be operated in difficult weather conditions at temperatures from minus 50 to plus 60 degrees.

    Russia has started mass production of "bullpup" ADS submachine guns for underwater shooting. 

    As told in Rostec state corporation, in Russia began the production of ADS submachine guns, which will be used for underwater shooting. They can also be used on land. These two-medium weapons, mainly intended for combat swimmers, are manufactured by the Central Design and Research Bureau of Sports and Hunting Weapons, which is part of the High-Precision Complexes holding.

    This was stated to the TASS news agency by Alexander Starostin, head of the Central Design and Research Bureau of Sports and Hunting Weapons, at the International Naval Salon, which is currently being held in St. Petersburg.

    An experimental batch of ADS was delivered to the troops back in 2019. As a result of its operation, the weapon was upgraded, taking into account the wishes and comments of the military, mainly regarding the convenience of its use.

    The principle of the bullpup layout, on the basis of which the design of the machine gun was created, makes the weapon more compact. The small length of the ADS does not require a folding stock.

    All types of 5.45 x 39 mm ammunition can be fired on land. Special PSP and PSP-UD cartridges are used for shooting in the water environment.

    Awesome... that looks like an excellent design, its compact design makes it handy for troops that are moved by vehicle or aircraft and it is ready to fire without needing a stock extended.

    The mechanism ejects shell cases from a small oval port just above the trigger area so you can shoot it left or right handed without any adjustments or risk of getting hot metal in your face.

    The built in grenade launcher looks good too.

    Would be interesting to see what upgrades and modifications they have made to the design.
