Kalashnikov Group of Companies plans to start supplies of the cutting-edge 9-mm PPK-20 submachine gun in this year, Kalashnikov CEO Dmitry Tarasov said at the IDEX-2021 international armament exhibition.
"PPK-20 supplies have not yet taken place; they are planned in 2021," Tarasov said.
The latest PPK-20 submachine gun was developed on the basis of the proven Vityaz-SN submachine gun. "Differences from the Vityaz are the reworked firing mechanism, the more advanced butt-stock, the silencer and the new switch," he added.
The PPK-20 passed state trials in 2020, the top manager said.
