Stats / Data
The AEK-999 'Barsook' (Badger) is a modernized version of the PKM machinegun, design focus was a MG unit capable of sustained automatic firing without having a quick-change barrel and better suited for assault operations where it could be fired from the hip or from the integral bipod. Designed and produced in Kovrov Machinebuilding Plant, entered trials for military service but lost against TsNIITochMash's PKP Pecheneg, Barsook is no longer in production but a small batch of Barsook made prior to production cessation are in service with the Russian MVD troops.
Building on the same receiver group as the PKM, Barsook retains it Kalashnikov pattern gas-operated rotary bolt operating mechanism. It retains the 650 rounds per minute cyclic rate of fire, effectively cover 1500m of firing range.
Barsook's most distinct addition is the newly designed barrel and a notably large muzzle brake. Newly designed barrel is partially fluted to save weight and improve heat dissipation, it can be removed for maintenance and inspection but it cannot be refitted in combat situation like a quick-change barrel. The large muzzle brake serves to dissipate flash and sound, also able to improve accuracy, in specific terrain, Barsook's gunshots cannot be heard from a 400-600 metres distance.
Other minor modifications include a small polymer forearm guard, the integrated bipod is fitted on the barrel instead of on the gas tube. Majority of the designs are still patterned after the PKM, fed with non disintegrating belts housing the 7.62x54mmR cartridge on the right side, being advertised as mobile firing LMG, Barsook is issued with the 100-round clip-on belt boxes that fits on the bottom of the gun. Barsook can also accept all standard PKM issue accessories, including tripod mount. If needed, the muzzle brake can be removed to fit a suppressor.
Another relatively petite MG T-Doll by body shape, AEK measures no taller than 130cm of body height when using the weapon as a scale reference and assuming it is drawn to size, meaning her body height is somewhat similar to MG MG4's.
As T-Doll with some degree of manly coolness, AEK was chosen as part of the Princes' Frontline group, as one of the motorbike riders (The other one is RF PzB 39). The "Prince Charming" on her "Modern Japanese Racing Horse" captured the heart of many Commanders with her long overcoat, fashionable headphones and her Akira style motorbike dismounting pose.
The artist RAN comment that he/she was contacted by certain fashion industry personals expressing their desire to produce AEK's black/green overcoat and supply it to the real life market. RAN produced a outfit sketch and posted it on his/her weibo page here. But unfortunately due to unnameable reasons, likely copyrights, AEK's overcoat did not enter production.
While neither MICA or RAN have revealed anything about the AEK's bike model, some player proposed that it is either based on the Suzuki GSXR 1000 or the Honda CBR250RR, purely by looking at the physical appearance.
