    Introduction:

    Minding the research made in the Voronej Institute of Modern Warfare, Dragunov Firearms Holding the main supplier of various firearms to the Pushkan armed forces for the past 100 years has decided to develop a new assault rifle that would be appropriate to the modern combat situations most of which the VIMW claims are urban. What DFH needed was a rifle that would focus on four points, compact size, accuracy, light weight and armor penetration. After half a decade in development the project was successful and AD-142 Assault Rifle has recently passed Russian Federation trials and is soon to be inducted into the military as a replacement for the AD-113 assault rifle currently in service with the RF armed forces.

    Technical overview:

    AD-142 is a bullpup configuration assault rifle with most of the mechanical parts to the rear of the gun thus making the front lighter while allowing the soldier carrying the rifle to place the weight of it on his shoulder making the gun much more stable then firing and vastly decreasing aiming time. The exterior parts of the gun are all made using polymer materials to reduce the weight of the rifle and increase its mobility.

    The firing mechanism is gas operated, rotating bolt however a moving barrel mechanism has been installed to greatly reduce the recoil from the 7.62 mm round. The receiver is allowed to recoil against a titanium spring inside the polymer housing. Titanium was used to reduce the need for spring maintenance thus greatly decreasing the frequency of maintenance for the gun making it one of the least needy rifles in the world today. Just like its predecessor AD-142 has 3 firing modes, semi-automatic, double-round and full automatic. While semi-automatic and full auto come standard with all modern assault rifles the double-round mode allows the gun to fire a burst of 2 bullets per each trigger pull, the bullets are fired at an amazingly high rate (1800 rounds per minute) and a well trained soldier could use this to a great advantage making the two rounds hit the same spot thus causing more damage to a target protected by armor or even a concrete wall or a target inside a lightly armored vehicle. In the full automatic mode the gun fires the first two rounds at the maximum 1800 rounds per minute rate and fires the rest of the ammo at a much lower rate of fire in order to ensure that the distribution of ammo fired can be controlled.

    The standard configuration OP-29 “Glaz Orla†(Eagle’s Eye, rus.) optical sight has a maximum magnification mode of 4-16x allowing the soldier to spot targets from over 1 km away and hit them in semi-automatic mode at 650 m away. Such accuracy is achieved by using the improvements made in the field of Cordite propellants as well as the more stabilized, aerodynamic design of the bullet itself.

    The bullet is a standard issue RF 7.62 mm AP round. The bullet itself is made with steel alloyed with wolfram (tungsten) greatly increasing the metal's toughness. During the testing the bullet was able to penetrate through 8 mm titanium plate plus 20 layers of Kevlar at at a 100 meters. The bullet is made with an air gap inside the front of the bullet. This technique shifts the center of gravity towards the rear, causing the bullet to destabilize nearly 17 cm earlier in tissue. This causes a pair of large stretch cavities at a depth likely to cause effective wound trauma, adding lethality to this unstoppable round. In order to maintain the penetrating capability of the round a wolfram cap is placed in the front of the bullet.

    Issued as standard for Russian Federation armed forces is a 45 round helical-feed magazine chosen over conventional ones for its compact size.

    AD-142 can be modified with an PG-7 under barrel grenade launcher, a flashlight, and a laser sight.

    Variations:

    AD-142 “Yastreb†(Hawk, rus.)- Standard issue described above.


    AD-142M “Drakon†(Dragon, rus.) – A modified version

    Caliber: 7.62x39 mm RF
    Action: Gas operated, rotating bolt
    Overall length: 740 mm
    Barrel length: 480 mm
    Weight: 2.9 kg empty, 3.34 kg with loaded 32 rounds magazine
    Magazine capacity: 32/45/60 rounds (depending on magazine)
    Effective Range: 650 m
    Rate of fire: 680-1800 rounds per minute
    Modes: semi-automatic, double-round, full-automatic
    Muzzle Velocity: 790 m/s
    Muzzle Energy: 2,507.34 J (x2 in double-round mode)
    Price: 1270 USD (Drakon, for sale in limited numbers only)

    Description:

    An electronics suit on the gun is added. The already mentioned OP-29 “Glaz Orla†is replaced by OP-42 “Glaz Drakona†(Dragon’s Eye, rus.) a 4-25x 10 mm scope that is a component of “Groza†(Thunder, rus.) system that also features a powerful “Almaz-IVM†processor that is placed on top of the gun and in the middle of it and is protected by a polymer casing like the rest of the rifle as well as TP-4 “Shjar†(Heat, rus.) thermal imager, and PNV-6 “Glaz Lva†(Lion’s Eye, rus.) night vision sight. All of them work together as a single unit with a button on the side of “Groza†that can be used to switch between different modes. “Groza†is IL capable thus it can work together with BDU-1 and 2 combat protection suites used by Russian Federation Spetsnaz. "Groza" system gives a soldier capabilities that would make him superior to his opponent in combat. The system utilizes a laser range finder that allows the soldier to know exactly how far away the target is, as well as if the target is friendly or non-friendly which this data can be transfered to BDU-1/2 IL (information link) that will enable the information to be shared with all other friendly forces on the ground. The IL link is two-fold meaning that target information sent over the IL will display on the scope as well as the HUD. Working together with UAV wall-penetrating radar surveillance the soldier will be able to kill targets literally through concrete walls as they are disillusioned into thinking that they are behind safe cove. In addition to the range finder and threat designator "Groza" allows the soldier to control the rate of fire of his weapon enabling him to select how many rounds per second he would want fired and so on.
