The TKB-0136-3M is a Russian prototype assault rifle designed by Nikolay Afanasyev. It is known for participating in the Abakan trials as a contender to replace the AK-74 assault rifle in service.

HistoryEdit

The TKB-0136-3M was submitted to the Abakan trials in 1984 by Nikolay Afanasyev of LAD machine gun fame. The TKB-0136-3M performed fairly well throughout most of the contest, however, once modification and refinements of the weapons were restricted to just muzzle brakes, the TKB-0136-3M, along with the AKB-1 and the AEK-971, were eliminated as it was no longer viable to work on it.

Design DetailsEdit

The TKB-0136-3M is a standard gas-operated assault rifle with a rotating bolt. It is known to have a ridiculously high rate of fire of 2000 RPM, or 33 rounds a second, even higher than that of the TKB-0111's. This meant that the magazine of the TKB-0136-3M could be emptied a sheer 0.9 seconds. Later variants of the TKB-0136-3M had a selectable rate of fire, though statistics on the rate of fire settings are unknown.
