 Russian pilots are expected to be equipped with small assault rifles as self-defense weapons


Am-17 assault rifle

According to the report, Russian Defense Minister Shoigu inspected the Kalashnikov booth at the army-2020 forum, and am-17 assault rifles attracted his attention. He said that Su-35 and su-57 pilots may be equipped with rifles, so it is necessary to change the size and weight of the am-17 so that it can fit into the pilots backpack. At present, Russian pilots are equipped with stechkin pistols.

The am-17 is a small automatic rifle, which uses standard intermediate 5.45 u00d7 39 mm bullets. It first appeared at the Russian army Expo in 2017. It is a close range weapon, mainly used to equip the military and law enforcement units of the Russian Ministry of the interior, the Russian National Guard and the Russian army.
