In 2022, the purchase and delivery of the latest small arms is planned for the units of the Ground Forces.
The pistol “Makarov” will be replaced by pistol complexes “Boa” in the “combined arms” and “special” configuration. The complexes of the “special” configuration have a low-noise firing device, target designators, and a flashlight. The Udav pistol complex has improved ergonomic characteristics, increased accuracy and accuracy of fire, and a long barrel resource.
This year, the state tests of the 7.62-mm Chukavin sniper rifle (SHF), which will also be put into service, have been completed.
Modern 7.62 and 5.45 mm AK-12 assault rifles continue to be routinely delivered to the Ground Forces units. In the current year, new submachine guns have entered the combined-arms formations and military units of the Eastern, Central, Southern and Western military districts.
A number of design features were introduced into the assault rifle, which made it possible to achieve greater combat effectiveness of the weapon, versatility of use, accuracy and accuracy of fire. The subunits receive a sample with firing modes: single shots, automatic fire, burst with a cutoff of two shots. In addition, the assault rifle has a “suspended” forend that protects the barrel from external loads, a removable high-performance muzzle brake-compensator, the ability to install a low-noise and flameless firing device, a folding butt adjustable in length, a Picatinny rail on the receiver cover for installing collimator, optical and night scopes, mechanical sighting device with a diopter entirely.
