AK-12: What's the new iteration of the AK-47 and what's changed?

Russian troops have been training with the new AK-12, the latest iteration of the AK-47 assault rifle.

But how is the weapon different?

Jonathan Ferguson, Keeper of Firearms and Artillery, Royal Armouries Museum, told Forces News the new rifle is capable of fitting a lot more attachments.

It also has a two-burst round system, which Mr Ferguson said could cause problems on the battlefield.
