    The current contract will make Russia loose money, and therefore it cant come to fruition. If India want the carrier by 2012, the contract will have to be redrafter with a higher price.

    Here are some pics from April,

    And can ATAKA handle it with a M1A2
    ?
    Not a chance...IF it hits the front and misses weakened zones. Which is very unlikely if a chopper is shooting the missile.

    It looks really good and futuristic/stealth that way.
    I will cry with happiness if it has foreward swept wings.

    I see, but in a "normal" situation it can defeat it.

    Normal situation for head on encounter, but with a helicopter that is frankly 95% impossible. EVEN if the chopper is low altitude, and the turret happens to be head on to the chopper, the missile would probably hit the roof at a sharp angle.

    I loved the weapon.

    I've fired a lot of SMGs before in the range. Including P-90, MP-5s, Uzi, Steyer TMP, Calico, M4 in 9mm, Mac 10, Tec 9, and various WW2 SMGs.

    Definitely MP5 and P90 was some of my favorite as far as accuracy, ease of handling, compatibility.

    When I visited Russia with my friends in 2003, we were honored and lucky enough to spend time with Kalashnikov's family, including trying out their newest weapons.

    Bizon was one of them.

    I love the reliability of AK in it, it didnt jam, it kept on throwing lead where you pointed non stop. Accuracy was very good. High cap magazine was even better.

    I would love to see the weapon in the hands of Russian SF, but money would be the issue right now.

    Maybe soon.

    I think this is an upgraded system in Polish or Czech use (forget which off hand), you can tell by the truck mounted radar.
