The RPK-74 is a squad automatic gun or SAW developed by the Kalashnikov Design Bureau of the Soviet Union in 1974. It is a light machine gun that fires 5.45x35mm M74 ammunition, and is very similar to the AK-74, though with a longer and heavier barrel, a bipod and some differences in the stock and forearm (handguard). However it cannot be fired for sustained periods of time due to the RPK-74's non-removable barrel. It can fire both 45 and 30 round box magazines, as well as 75 round drum magazines (these, however, are very rare).

A prototype 90 round drum magazine has been developed as well.
