  1. Handguards. The palm swell makes the AKM much easier to hold when you are sweaty and trying to stay on target: Sights. AKM 1000m, Type 3 800m. I don't know why this is. Sling attachment points. Receiver and gas block on type 3, stock and handguard retainer on AKM: Gas venting holes on Type 3 drilled into tube. Vent holes on AKM cast into actual block. Dust covers: thin and reinforced with ribbing vs. thick and smooth.

  2. Over the years I just kind of learned to accept the AK for what it is. Cheap garbage intended to be issued to conscripts and nothing more. But then my tastes changed, I asked for forgiveness, admitted I was wrong, and I kind of went off the deep end. I've even scored a rare, 7.62x39 Finnish RK62 in proper FDF pattern. About 200 were imported before they realized that in the 60s there was no 7.62x39 anywhere for purchase so... way to go Valmet!

  4. Hey all! T___A here, You may, or may not be acquainted with me. In case you don't I mostly post in the Soviet Tank thread here in MW. I do read most of the content on the rest forum however.

So our glorious leader in a fit of drunken anger has appointed me the Reich Plenipotentiary for the Administration of the Four Plan of the Final Solution of the shitpoasting question. Seriously: Dumbass slap fighting in the wrong thread will no longer be tolerated N

  5. I forgot this. Type 3 BCG: AKM BCG: Closer in weight that I would have thought, but later the AKM got a relief cut near the rear of the right side of the carrier to save weight. So now the Chinese Type 56-1. The "-1" designates it as a folder. The reasons the 56 isn't a direct AKM copy is because of the Sino-Soviet split.

  8. Precision vs area of effect. MICLIC charges are basically 1-2 vehicle wide area off effect IIRC in a small area. Thermobarics are a bit more... indiscriminate. They tend to be a pretty big boom.

  10. Gurkhan's post about 2A82-1M cannon Also from text and number of material bought for cannons production says that no T-14s were finished in 2018 and only 24 cannons could be/were made so far. From otvaga - patent was found for 2A82, another link.
