Just a quick question about the AK-47. When were the drum magazine and grenade launcher introduced? Just got the AKS-47 set from Zytoys and was going to use in a Vietnam SEAL project and wondering if that would be proper for the 1970 timeframe?

Thanks and :cheers

I think for Vietnam you could use the plain AK47 for sure. A Drum fed machine gun was also used by special Forces like MACV-SOG Teams. This was the RPD machine gun. Often the barrel was shorten.

Development of a grenade launcher for the AK-47 began in 1966, continued into the 1970s, and in 1978 it was in service as GP-25.

So i think they don´t use them in Vietnam. I know for sure they were used in the Soviet-Afghan-War from 1979 to 1989.
