The subject matter of this article was cut from the final version of a S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game.
This is a modernized version of the AKM-74/2 assault rifle. An advanced design boosts its rate of fire by 100 rounds per minute. Some design elements were removed to lighten the barrel, which renders optical scopes unusable. Uses 5.45x39 mm ammo.In-game description
This special variant of the AKM-74/2 would have been able to fire 100 more rounds per minute, peaking at 750 RPM. This makes the weapon very similar to the Fast-shooting Akm 74/2 found in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl. However, unlike the Fast-shooting AKM, it had some of its components removed, rendering the use of a PSO-1 scope impossible.
The variant cannot be spawned in-game due to the lack of weapon configs. Name (st_wpn_ak74_m1) and description (st_wpn_ak74_m1_descr) still exist in the st_items_weapons.xml file, however.
