New submachine gun produced by DNR separatists

A separatist media outlet published a video yesterday showing a demonstration of a new submachine gun manufactured entirely within the Donetsk People’s Republic. Outwardly the weapon appears similar to the Interdynamic MP-9 (of later TEC-9 fame) and features a H&K style telescoping wire stock. Upon removing a flared muzzle attachment, a suppressor is also shown screwed on flush with the receiver. The weapons designer Vladimir Mishchenko is shown demonstrating the weapon which he describes as being intended for use by the “internal Special Forces of the DNR” when engaging in enclosed urban operations.

The ‘Oplot’ SMG fires from a closed bolt and appears to use an AK type trigger grouping. It is chambered for the 9×18 Makarov cartridge and uses a 25rd magazine, presumably also locally manufactured. Rate of fire is around 850 ti 900 rounds per minute.
