The new smooth-bore gun, the МР-155 Ultima, was unveiled by the concern ahead of the major arms forum, which will kick off on Sunday at Patriot Expo military theme park outside Moscow.
The weapon, based on the trusty semi-automatic MP-155 shotgun, features a display on its stock and, apparently, an under-barrel digital camera – at least the gun’s options menu has such a parameter, as the promotional footage shows.
“This is our step into the entertainment industry. I believe this is the first product of its kind and we will further develop it. Who knows, maybe this line will show what modern hunting in Russia is like,” Kalashnikov’s director General Dmitriy Tarasov has said.
The shotgun, which is expected to hit the civilian market next year, is said to be capable of connecting to other digital devices. It might come in truly handy for those hunters who feel an immediate urge to brag about their kill online. Still, taking selfies with the smart shotgun might be not the smartest idea and is highly inadvisable.
