    The autocorrect swapped ak-74 and ak-47....

      The AK family is quite accurate the only reason why people think it isn’t is the high rise recoil that gets most people and makes the shot grouping look bad if you aren’t expecting it

      America Is#1 Never said the AK-74 used 7.62x39mm. Please don’t tell me about AKs when I have 4 AKs in my closet lol

    • America Is#1
      America Is#1 12 days ago

      It may have switched AK74 and AK47 but the AK74 uses a 5.45mm round not a 7.62mm.

    • Kalash Operator

      It’s actually being replaced by the AK-12 now. First batch already received. However, it’s mostly the AK-74

    Russian soldiers have the same mentality the soldiers of ww2 had, they are extremely capable and dangerous. unfit americans join the military to get a paycheck and some self esteem from idiots calling them heroes. Don't compare the two ever again.

    The information on guns here is pretty wrong. Russia adopted the 5.45x39mm cartridge and the AK-74 rifle in the 1970s. Bullet weight comparable to the 5.56x45mm cartridge of the Americans, at about 55 grains. The AR is a better rifle than the AK by universal agreement, also. The ballistic problems of M855 ball ammunition have not been relevant for American forces for basically a decade, and were never the fault of the rifle which fired the rounds.

      Pahaha you could not even make it over here, Russia has no global reach other than some strategic bombers dating from the Cold War. Meanwhile, America has TEN aircraft carriers. Each full of the latest fighters with the latest missiles, flanked by an entire carrier battle group of support ships like destroyers, missile frigates, and submarines. Russia has what? A burned down dry dock and a single carrier, with nothing on it except drunken men sitting on the decks in lawn chairs?

    Well, the AK 47 proper hasn t been used as the standard service rifle since the '60s, its been replaced by the AKM and later by the AK 74 which uses the 5.45 caliber, a soviet response to the NATO 5.56.

    When it comes out to modern head to head. U.S has more money therefore we get more training, More money to support a war, we have better technology, we have way more combat experience, how many of our troops have combat experience? How many Russian troops have combat experience?, who has more global support? Nobody stacks up to the U.S when it comes to a head to head battle.

    Dashiell Gillingham 23 days ago

    You failed to mention the most important number on the US-Russia comparison; the number of soldiers, tanks, artillery guns, ships, and aircraft the USA can throw at an enemy. Russia struggles to maintain third place in the numbers game with conscripted infantry while the USA has over a million volunteer soldiers ready to go at any one time. If it used its draft, that advantage would get even greater.

    • Adolf Hitler
      Adolf Hitler 21 day ago

      Dashiell Gillingham wrong, Russia has fuckloads more equipment, and most of it is better, have fun even trying to get close to Russia, your carrier groups will make nice targets for Russian anti-ship missiles.

  • John Smith

    The 5.56 round is perfect for killing. The problem is the type of 5.56 round that the US uses.
    If you pick the right ballistic 5.56, the round tumbles causing severe damage.

      COLTON_CJF 23 days ago

      Hollow points does most damage. 5.56 BALL just goes straight through the target without much damage.

  • jimmy page
    jimmy page 24 days ago

    We the people of the USA do not want a WAR with anyone. However do not under estimate that we as a people have always been privately Armed for years. As it's written into our constitution the right to bare ARMS and to defend the USA from all enemys foreign and domestic. If we were ever invaded enemies wouldn't have to deal with just our military but also with every citizen that is very well armed and more than willing to DIE for this country. A land invasion of the USA would be impossible for that very reason.

    You’re an idiot, you know nothing about modern combat, I have a few friends who are Marines and Army troops in the US military, and from what they tell me, they firstly don’t use the M4 in mass and they still use the M16A4 for most of the infantry, and i think people in the military know what they’re talking about.

      Fat Americans??? M4A1 better then anything Russia has. M1A2 Sep V3 better then any tank Russia has, American is full with the special forces so there is no need to list them you probably already know them. Apache is the best helicopter period. The American soldiers are the fittest and strongest with one of the best training possible light years ahead of that fat Russian people you call soldier but in reality they are conscripts with 0 training and combat experience. The US army is not only the fittest but the most experience force in the world with maybe Israelis coming close and maybe some UK and French but nothing more

Combat leaders do not run American military units. Feminized caricatures do. Men will still defend America. Not the pretty boys in their pretty clothes in D.C., they are cowards. DRS / RVN Vet

    Денег много, как и амбиций, но ума как всегда не хватает) У американской армии есть свои плюсы, но на 2018 год США приуныла в могуществе. Хотя даже в 2000 годы она стала идти в упадок. Простите, могу быть я не прав, но у США война не ради кого-то или ради благих целей, а просто ради бабла (денег). У армии СССР да, была полная беда, много проблем. Но снова же... к 2018 году всё меняется) Как и в 2000 годы США стало падать, так и в те же года Россия стала подниматься в военном плане (и не только в военном). Но не бывает худа без добра =))
    P.S. Однако, даже в те не совсем славные времена, в военном деле, у СССР были славные разработки, которые превосходили разработки США. Просто у нас об этом не трубили по всему миру.
