Real lifeEdit

The AKS-74 is a variant of the AK-74. A Russian assault rifle developed in the early 1970s in the Soviet Union as the replacement for the earlier AKM which itself was a refined version of the AK-47.[2]

The "S" designation means (Russian: складной; Skladnoy) "folding". The AKS-74 has a folding stock for use with air assault infantry.[3]
