The Hungarian Army’s new AK.

The AK63MF, a modern take on their traditional AK63. In it’s configuration, they feature an Aimpoint CCO with a x3 magnification “flip-on” optic, MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny rail, an adjustable “M4 style” stock and a AG36.

Notice the modified fire selector switch on the left hand side of the rifle, very much like the AR-15. Nevertheless, it is unexplained why it is not standard issue. But it might be somewhat related to the fact that the modernization of these rifles was encouraged by NATO, especially American military advisers. And pay no attention to the guy wearing two pistol belts for whatever reason.

József Tibor Fejes, a young Hungarian identified by C. J. Chivers in The Gun as ‘the first known insurgent to carry an AK-47.’, ‘Fejes obtained his prize after Soviet soldiers dropped their rifles during their attack on revolutionaries in Budapest in 1956…. The Hungarian Revolution marked the AK-47’s true battlefield debut.’

na, ha valami, akkor ez gecimenő, gyerekek.

Solothurn S18-100 Anti tank rifle.
These big guns were the hybrid of Anti-Tank and Anti-Aircraft ingenuity, firing 20mm anti-tank rounds, when the round penetrated the armor of the tank, it would release a handful of tungsten balls into the interior of the tank like a shotgun. Killing anyone inside.
