The PLA Also Have An Underwater Gun

20130530100502187A Chinese TV station has broadcasted footage of Chinese PLA Navy drivers with their clone of Russia’s APS Underwater Assault Rifle.
The existence of this gun was confirmed only three years ago and until now I have not seen clear above water photos of the gun.

Unlike the new Tula ADS Underwater Rifle, this gun is not useful above water.
