The WAKM (Russian: Модернизированный Автомат Калашникова, modernizirovanny Avtomat Kalashnikova; English: Modernized Kalashnikov Automatic Rifle) is a 7.62mm assault rifle designed by Mikhail Kalashnikov. It is a common modernized variant of the AK-47 rifle developed in the 1940s.

Introduced into service with the Soviet Army in 1959, the AKM is the most ubiquitous variant of the entire AK series of firearms and it has found widespread use with most member states of the former Warsaw Pact and its African and Asian allies as well as being widely exported and produced in many other countries. It was officially replaced in Soviet frontline service by the AK-74 in the late 1970s, but remains in use worldwide.

A folding stock variant, known as the AKMS (S – складной, skladnoy; folding) sports an under-folding metal shoulder stock, replacing the AKM's wooden solid stock. This should be the model in-game.

On average, in all the small arms in the world, ~20% are Avtomat Kalashnikova derivatives.

Trivia[]

General

  • If the AKM has a grip attached it ultimately transforms the AKM into a PM Md. 65. A Romainian assault rifle based on the AKM but with a wooden grip on the lower handguard.

Insurgency

  • Despite its designation in-game, it is modeled after the AKMS.
  • The AKM has had its animations remain the same throughout the games' life cycle; the AK-74 and AKS-74U were revisited with new animations in later updates. 
  • The AKM is the only primary weapon that costs 0 supply points in the vanilla game without theater modifications.  

Insurgency Sandstorm

  • The AKM in game is specifically the AKMN model, as it has a side rail for mounting optics such as the 1x OKP-7 in its dovetail configuration rather than its Picatinny configuration.
