The AK74s power should not be joked about. this weapon and his brothers will tear through any enemy who dares stand in front of it. only the one quickest on the draw can down someone with this weapon. but if you are faster none should defeat you. this weapon might lack some accuracy and have a hard kick, but paired with it damage and fire rate, not talking about the lighting fast reload. This weapon is one of the most consistent and reliable in the game.
The AK-74 assault rifle was a Soviet answer to the US M16, which adopted in 1964. A number of the American M16 assault rifles were captured during the Vietnam War. These weapons were examined by the Soviets and tested against theAKM, that was then a standard-issue infantry weapon used by the Soviet Army. Soviets found out that the new American 5.56x45 mm intermediate round had superior ballistics to the Soviet 7.62x39 mm round. An official requirement was issued in 1966 to develop a new assault rifle alongside with new ammunition. Their main goal was to improve firing accuracy of the AKM. Development of the new 5.56x39 mm round was completed in 1973. It was based on the previous 7.62x39 mm round in order to simplify production. Also Mikhail Kalashnikov developed a new assault rifle, chambered for this new round. Eventually this weapon was adopted in 1974 as the AK-74 and became a standard-issue infantry rifle with the Soviet Army. The AK-74 is also in service with at least 30 countries worldwide. This weapon was license-produced in Bulgaria, East Germany, Poland and Romania.
