State trials completed by Kalashnikov for Vityaz-MO 9 mm SMG

Rostec’s Kalashnikov Group has completed state trials of its new Vityaz-MO 9 mm submachine gun (SMG), the company announced on 22 July.

“An interagency committee has confirmed that the [Vityaz-MO] is ready for serial production and recommended it be designated as the Kalashnikov PPK-20 9 mm SMG,” Kalashnikov said in a statement.

The Vityaz-MO is based on Kalashnikov’s PP-19-01 Vityaz-SN 9 mm SMG that entered serial production in the mid-2000s. Compared with the baseline model, the new firearm features improved ergonomics and reliability, according to the Rostec website, and has a sound moderator.
