    Russia’s famed small arms maker, the Kalashnikov Concern, is set to unveil its latest designs, including drones, landing boats and the AK-12 assault rifle, at the Army-2015 expo, the company’s press service said Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) The inaugural Army-2015 forum will be held on June 16-19 outside Moscow, with over 1,000 defense companies and weapon manufactures expected to take part.

    "At the Army-2015, [forum] we will present a variety of our brand new small-arms products, as well as drones and modern landing craft," the press service quoted Kalashnikov General Director Alexei Krivoruchko as saying.

    The company also plans to show off a new remote weapon system to be mounted on the Typhoon-class mine-resistant vehicle and on the BK-16 landing boat.

    Kalashnikov small arms to be displayed at the expo include the latest version of the AK-12 rifle, as well as upgraded versions of the SVD-M Dragunov sniper rifle and the AK-74M assault rifle.

    The Kalashnikov Concern was created in 2013 in a merger of two Soviet-era plants, becoming Russia’s largest producer of rifles and other weaponry.

    The company exports its products to 27 countries, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Norway, Italy, Canada, Kazakhstan and Thailand.
