I can't get the video to play. Could you list any new features the weapon has?

Erkki 28 Jun 12 12:36

From what I can get of the Video it has improved recoil control, improvements in ergonomics, Tactical rails. Also the butt stock will be adjustable

Improved recoil in the manner the AN94 tried, or some other method? The other improvements are probably worthwhile tweaks, and easy to implement.

Russia to participate in Red Flag
 
Quote:

The Russian Federation Air Force will be coming to Nellis AFB, Nevada, to participate in the US Air Force's Red Flag (13-1) exercise. How the world has changed... This would have been absolutely unthinkable even a few years ago. It's actually kinda bizarre now... But at the same time, kinda awesome.

Might be a rumor run amok. No info on the USAF site and Red Flag 13-1 is showing up at Elmendorf AFB in in Alaska, not at Nellis. Stay tuned for more info.
