The AK47 is a small gun in Fallout Tactics.


More powerful than the M16A1 but with a shorter range. Both the gun and its 7.62mm ammo are very common and one can afford to equip most of their squad with them.

Behind the scenes

The AK-47 is a simple assault rifle of Soviet origin, invented by Mikhail Kalashnikov in 1947 and adopted by the Soviet Army in 1949. AK-47s were manufactured across the world during the second half of the 20th century through the beginning of the 21st century. In 1956, AK-47s were adopted by the Chinese Army (PLA) but were replaced with new-generation assault rifles prior to the Great War, and in the United States, likewise replaced in service by the AK-112 assault rifle.
