The recoil of this cannon is less than 7.62 mm rifles have, and therefore has a minimal effect on the quality of the shot. Due to 1330 mm barrel length, the bullets have an initial velocity of 150 m/s and pierce armored vehicles and engineering fortifications. The shot accuracy is from 1 to 1.5 MOA.

"The rifle is equipped with a new generation sound moderator, which, in addition to the low sound of the shot, works as a ballistic refrigerator. The rifle temperature during intense combat is the same as the temperature of the human body. And this greatly complicates its detection with appropriate camouflage," say the specialists of the Mayak plant.
