7.62mm AK-15 6P71 assault rifle at Military-technical forum ARMY-2016 01

Summary

The AK-15 is a Russian assault rifles chambered in 7.62×39mm respectively. It is designed and manufactured by Kalashnikov Concern (formerly Izhmash). It is one of the modern derivatives of the Russian AK-Pattern series of assault rifles.

The AK-12 project began in 2011 by the IZHMASH factory which became part of the Kalashnikov Concern as a private venture, in an attempt to participate in the "Ratnik" trials which were held by the Russian Army. It was further developed by Kalashnikov Concern, and throughout its development and evaluation stage it has received multiple modifications to meet the Russian military's standard and to address the Russian Army's concerns regarding the cost and issues in fully automatic fire of the earlier prototype models. It went through several revisions in order to improve upon the "range of defects" that were discovered on the earlier prototype models derived from the AK-200. These were later abandoned in favor for the proven and improved AK-400, which was finalized as the AK-12 and AK-15.
