The RPK-12 is a light machine gun variant of the AK-12 assault rifle. It is a modernization of the older RPK-74, and like the AK-12, is fitted with multiple accessory rails and lightweight polymer furniture.
The RPK-12 can utilize the standard 30-round magazines, or higher capacity 40, 75, or 100 round magazines of existing 7.62x39mm AK-type magazines.
Much like the U-100 MK5, the RPK-12 is a very stable and accurate support weapon, with a low rate of fire. It has the advantage of a high-capacity 60-round magazine. It is essentially the same as the RPK-74M from Battlefield 3, but with a larger magazine and lower rate of fire.
It has the same rate of fire as the RPK featured the China Rising expansion, with a higher magazine capacity but lower damage, as well as a slightly different recoil behavior.
