The AKM (Avtomat Kalashnikova Modernizirovannyi) was designed in 1959 as a successor to the renowned AK-47. It represents a significant advancement in the evolution of the AK series of rifles, as it was specifically engineered to streamline manufacturing processes, making it more cost-effective and easier to produce on a large scale. The AKM, chambered in 7.62x39mm, became the standard rifle for the Soviet Army and was widely adopted by most member states of the Warsaw Pact, ensuring its presence across Eastern Europe and beyond. It was exported and produced in many other countries, making it ubiquitous worldwide.
