In doing so, it offered a greater hit probability
on full-automatic than either the AKM or M16 series is capable of Alexandrov's AL-7 was an interesting step forward, but at the time the Soviet Union did not have the finances to switch to a more expensive combat rifle.
MUSKET ACCURACY Hit Probability

The high first round hit probability
is due in part to the multiple projectiles available in a single round of shotgun ammunition.
goes way up too, thanks to the simple sight picture -- red on target, squeeze trigger.
The Russians have long focused on muzzle brakes as a means to increase the hit probability
of their conscripts.
A conservative approach is to adjust hit probability
from the theoretical .
The system offers the latest in night-sight technology, featuring an IR camera, and is gyrostabilized with an independent sight line, ensuring high hit probability
against all types of target.
Dissatisfaction with the AKM's lack of control and dispersion on full automatic, especially in the hands of conscripts, led the Russians to look for a way to improve a rifle's hit probability
Ruag claims that an RPG-7 can be bought on the black market for less than $100 and although the weapon does not have a high hit probability
, the rounds are capable of penetrating between 320 and 450 mm of armour steel at between 100 to 200 metres.
This dramatically improves hit probability
by reducing evasive manoeuvres, efficiency and action of potential target countermeasures.
A tri-axial sensor detects angular displacements of the target which enables the fire control unit to present the gunner with a corrected aiming point that takes target motion into account, thus providing a very high single-shot hit probability
It demonstrated a 77 per cent hit probability
, six times that of the SS.
