The PK-A red dot sight is a reflex sight produced by BelOMO (Russian: Belorusskoe Optiko-Mechanichesckoye Obyedinenie; English: Belarus Optical & Mechanical Enterprise) in Minsk, Belarus. The sight is compatible with side-mounted systems commonly found on AK, SKS, and SVD-type rifles. The sight itself is comparable to many Western red dot sights, such as the AimPoint Comp M3 and Comp M4. The sight uses a single red dot within a nitrogen-filled lens setup and has eight brightness levels.
"Common Russian mid-range scope for AK and Saiga style receivers with a Chevron reticule and 3.4x zoom; faster aiming than the PSO-1 with less zoom."

Other than its inclusion on the Gamescom Multiplayer Fact Sheet released by EA, it is a 3.4x magnification sight, equivalent to the American M145 MGO. However, there are some differences. Aside from the model, which is notably less obstructive, the PK-A sports a single red chevron, rather than the actual crosshairs in the M145. The chevron is illuminated, making it the easier of the two 3.4x sights to aim in the dark without assistance from another attachment, like a laser pointer. However, despite being a superior night-ops choice, the PK-A has no ticks or reticle markings of any kind to indicate bullet drop. The M145 does have such markings, making it superior for longer-range combat.
- The ACOG mounted on the MK3A1 uses the PK-A reticle.
