Real lifeEdit

The AKS-74U is a variant of the AK-74. The "S" designation means (Russian: складной; Skladnoy) "folding" and the "U" designation means (Russian: укороченный; Ukorochenniy) "shortened."

As the AKS-74U is a shortened AK-74, it is actually a carbine, not an assault rifle. Similar to the difference between the M16 rifle and the M4 carbine.
