The AN-94 is an assault rifle featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Lockdown.
The AN-94 (Russian: 5,45-мм автомат Никонова обр. 1987 г. / АН-94 «Абака́н», lit. 5.45mm Automatic Nikonov assault rifle, 1987 / AN-94 Abakan) is a gas operated assault rifle developed in the 1980s and early 1990s by Russian designer Gennadiy Nikonov, and is manufactured by Izhmash. It is chambered in the 5.45x39mm cartridge. The AN-94 features a unique recoil action system using a 2 round burst fire at 1800 RPM called the "Nikonov mechanism" that allows the user to fire the two bullets in quick succession before the recoil is felt by the user.
