Izmash the makers of the Kalashnikov have declared bankruptcy. It makes me wonder was the AK-12 born out of proven science on making a better gun. Or was it born out of the need to make somthing new for people to buy for the company to stay in buisness?

There are only prototypes. During november 2012 first stage of tests will begins.
In middle 2013 tests will ends and may be army will buy first small.
And may be in 2015 full size production will starts.

Now where is no correct information about characteristics AK-12. All what you read is conjectures.
AK-12 will be base for different guns of various calibres (also new ammo, not only for 5,45 and 7,62)

At the same time 5 variants of modernization AK-74 are ready. It's called "AK 74M"
But also where is no final information.
Third World War will begins soon....

Of course no! Izmash has changed owner. Nothing changed.
There is no cause for warning about Izmash.

Well, if it is as good as it is said, Putin's modernisation of Russian Forces is going well. I think he don't want Russia to fall behind China in matter of millitary.
