    I do not know if it will phase the AK-74M3s out which has been used by our special ops in Syria, but the AK-12, AK-15 were built in order for our Ratnik program but the military kept debating if they should accept or not. The AK-12, AK-15 will be used by the ground forces and maybe VDV.
    The Internal troops and most likely VDV will receive the A-545
