Weapon Background[edit]

Automatic Kalashnikov 12, the latest installation of the long running Kalashnikov franchise of assault rifle, gradually replacing all previous 5.45 firing weapons as the new standard service rifle for the Russian Army, Airborne and Naval Infantry forces, GRAU designation for AK-12 is 7P60.

Development of AK-12 started even before 2011, a modernization attempt on the previous standard rifle the AK-74M, AK-12 project aimed to create a rifle with lighter weight, higher performance, reasonable production cost, improved reliability and more compatibility with modern military equipment. Izhmash (Later merged and formed into Kalashnikov Concern) presented their prototype models for rifle trials over a course of several years, in 2016 the AK-12 design was finalized, it competed against the Koksharov A-545/762 (AEK-971 derivative) for the standard service rifle title. The Russian Army adopted the AK-12 and it's 7.62x39mm Soviet firing variant AK-15 as the main service rifle in 2018, while the AEK derivatives entered further trials for special forces service.

Like all Kalashnikov rifles, AK-12 follows Kalashnikov rifle's pattern and design, operates with the gas-operated long-stroke piston system with a rotating bolt, it retains Kalash features such as the right side charging handle, behind the well magazine release. Differ from the discontinued early prototype AK-200 that featured a quick change barrel, AK-12 is based on the later AK-400 prototype that has a free-floating barrel, meaning it is more accurate but the barrel cannot be replaced (not as easily as a quick change one) and the gun cannot be modified to fire other calibres, final barrel length of AK-12 is 415mm. The 3-round hyper burst feature was also replaced by a faster cyclic 2-round burst in the finalized AK-12 model.

Designed to chamber the 5.45x39mm M74 cartridge, AK-12 is able to reach an effective firing range of 600 metres, achieving a 700 rounds per minute cyclic rate of fire. Various magazine of different sizes are compatible with AK-12, range from a 30-round box, a 60-round casket, RPK-16's 96-round drum magazine. AK-12 can also be fed with the AK-74/RPK-74 issue 5.45 magazine.

AK-12 features large coverage of Picatinny rails placements on the gun to improve compatibility with combat accessories. One long rail on top of the receiver extending to the barrel muzzle end for mounting optics or back up iron sights, side and bottom of the rifle forearm to mount other combat accessories like fore grip, frontal light attachments and detachable grenade launchers of GP-25/GP-34 series. Other features include the side foldable and adjustable shoulder stock, a newly designed pistol grip to improve ergonomics, muzzle of the weapon features an advance muzzle brake, items such as suppressor and bayonet can also be fitted on the barrel. AK-12 also shares many common parts with AK-74 to ease the process of replacement.[1][2]

Design

Alternative CG of AK-12 showing her opened eyes

An almost monochrome character with long silver hair tighten in a pony tail, gives the impression of a skilled military elite. Her combat attire consist of three layers, listed from inside to outside: Jacket, Accessory body belt, Cloak, she also come with a gas mask of some sort that she occasionally wears, wearing long trousers into low-heel/heelless boots, with what appears to be ammo pouches attached on the tights.

Her eyes are usually shut, but when opened they are of a bright pink hue, it is worth noting that when her eyes opens upon skill activation and remain open through out the duration.

The artist Duoyuanjun commented in one of his weibo post, he proclaimed that the eye lid of the T-doll does not actually effect ocular function, AK-12 constantly analyzes surrounding even with her eye lids sealed shut. Eye lids itself functions as an information filter, unneeded ocular information are ignored in order to save processing power. Upon entering combat stance her eyes will open, to counter act this increased load AK-12 will turn off emotion module, she relies purely on logical processes when combat intensifies.[3]

Though this artist would also comment that this is merely his own unofficial explanation, MICA team have yet to explain on AK-12's closed eyes.

Trivia

  • The screen flashes when AK-12 activates her combat skill.
  • The in-game art of AK-12 is holding the final and full production version based on the AK-400 series, not to be confused with earlier AK-12 prototypes based on the AK-200 series.
    • The official character setting image provided by MICA team shows that AK-12 can be chambered for the 5.56x45mm NATO calibre, but only the early prototype AK-200 derivatives can do this, the production variant cannot fire nor can be refitted to fire any other calibre other than the 5.45x39mm Soviet.
    • The artist Duoyuanjun himself have commented that the in-game version of AK-12 is AK-400.[5]
