The AKS-74U is a firearm of questionable classification that originated from the AKS-74 Assault rifle. The weapon can be considered a carbine as it fires the same 5.45mm round as the AK-74. However, the AKS-74U is sometimes classed as a submachine gun as it is often deployed like one- used as a close-combat weapon, often by special forces and paratroopers. The weapon also plays a role similar to later personal defense weapons such as the FN P90 and Heckler & Koch MP7- as a step in between an assault rifle and a submachine gun.
