Video: Kalashnikov Concern Knows How To Put on A Demo

    Kalashnikov Concerns Demo Team Run a Pistol Drill (Kalashnikov Concern)

    Kalashnikov Media, Kalashnikov Concern’s dedicated media website, has been ramping up its releases recently. Its latest video features a hair-raising demo by Kalashnikov’s demonstration team.

    The Kalashnikov Group held the demo on Armourers’ Day, a Russian professional holiday for workers and veterans of defence industry. Kalashnikov Media reported that the demonstration’s audience included general director of the Kalashnikov Group Alexey Krivoruchko, the general director of the corporation “Rostec” Sergey Chemezov and the head of Udmurtia Alexander Brechalov.

    The demo team members predominately use Vityaz-SN 9x19mm submachine guns and transition to pistols for some close range, William Tell-esque drills with targets and clays.

    During the event employees performed drills in which they engaged targets while crossing each other’s path and demonstrate various tactical scenarios including a hostage drill, casualty tending and a climactic room clearance – featuring a ballistic shield. The demo included the use of a small drone to spot a target from above and allow the team to fire through a breeze block wall and neutralise the target.

    The new video follows another posted last month featuring members of the same demo team demonstrating some similar drills including path crossing, transitions and shooting targets held up by team members. The video also features an interesting injured driver vehicle drill. Check it out below:
