Although it similarly looks like an AN-94, but uses the internals of an AK-47/74. The design started back in the 1970s, when Aughad forces saw the AK-47s having limited accuarcy at 300 meters during the Aughad revolution in the 1970s. Turnal factory turned to Srecko Varinius Adenuarus (the owner of Turnal factory and where guns are made for the Aughad forces), to redesign the AK-47. In 1976, he build the first prototype of the AK-94, named the AK-76. It had limited success, but dropped out of service in 1986 due to the AK-76 is too expensive to build and fragile on the battlefield. In 1994, the AK-94 finished it's final prototype stages. Aughad forces adopted the AK-94 in 1998, and saw it's first use in Aughad-Columbus conflict in the early 2000s. Aughad forces were impressed by the AK-94. Several improvements from the AK-94 from the AK-47/AKM included accuracy and light weight of the AK-94. There was one major problem with the AK-94 was that it lacks the Picatinny rails. (Most modern rifles had Picatinny rails systems Ex. M16A3/a4 and the M4 Carbine) By 2013, about 10+ countries had adopt the AK-94.
The AK-94 uses a long-stroke piston gas system like from the AK-74 rifle. It has a AKS-74U folding stock. The hanguards are made up of plastic, polymer, and aluminum alloy and other composite materials (like the M16 rifle) and the main reciever is a AKM reciever.
