Although tokar-2 is not there too

Spasiva in advance

Edit: is it an evolution of 6P67/68?

On a related topic, is there anywhere i can read about what is the actual origin and story of this rifle and what is the current state of it when compared to the recent AK12 in Russia?

Kord-5.45 is a factory name of the 6P67 balanced action assault rifle. Kord-7.62 is 6P68. Those two are similar in design but system is not "multicaliber" as you cannot convert one to another

Thanks. It was a good read and really well written article.

Anyway, i have a few questions. Why did the ratnik program requirement was to have a 2 round burst instead of 3?

to get the most of the 3rd burst, you need a cyclic ROF about 1500-2000 RPM

at 900-1000 RPM, typical for balanced action rifles, optimal bustr length is 2 rounds. It was calculated long ago, back during research stages of the Abakan program
