The Kalashnikov AK-15 is a selective-fire assault rifle chambered in the popular 7.62mmx39mm Soviet cartridge. The design represents a modern form of earlier Soviet-Russian assault weapons of same chambering. The AK-15 brings about improved ergonomics for the modern warfighter as well as enhanced accuracy-at-range due to better recoil control. The rifle follows the classic Kalashnikov arrangement with its over-barrel gas cylinder placement, curved magazine, and slotted muzzle brake.

The rifle has an empty weight of 3.5 kilograms and is sighted out to 800 meters in its base configuration. The receiver and handguard sections feature sections of Picatinny rail for the mounting of optics, aimers, grips, and other related tactical accessories. Iron sights can be retained as backup or primary sighting devices. The handguard is further slotted to allow the hot barrel to cool naturally while still protecting the operator's supporting hand. The adjustable buttstock at rear is hinged to fold over the receiver for compactness. A more ergonomic pistol grip is positioned aft of the trigger unit and within easy reach of the firing controls. The barrel also supports a suppressor for clandestine work.
