The AK74 family of assault rifles were developed in the early 1970s in the Soviet Union as the replacement for the earlier AKM (itself a refined version of the AK-47). It uses a smaller intermediate cartridge, the 5.45x39mm, replacing the 7.62x39mm chambering of earlier Kalashnikov-pattern weapons.
The AKS-74U ("U" for "???????????"/"Ukorocennyj" [shortened]) was developed in the late 1960s from the AKS 74 .
The AKS-74U is an ultra-compact assault rifle designed in the Soviet Union that was in production from 1979 until circa 1991, the AKS-74U was intended as a personal defense weapon for tanks, guns, helicopters and other vehicles crews, and for the special operations forces, who required a compact but relatively powerful individual automatic weapon, also had been issued to various Police and other Law Enforcement forces acres the USSR and the Post-USSR countries, including Russia.
The firearm was adopted into service in 1979, and was issued starting the same year. The majority of these guns were made at the Tula Arms Factory, rather than at Izhevsk where most other rifles of the Kalashnikov pattern were made, AKS-74U cannot be fitted with bayonet.
