AO-63 assault rifle - 5.45x39mm
Image of what the "AO-63" assault rifle looks like in the film Red Scorpion. This was made from a South African R1(FN FAL) battle rifle.

The large assault rifle used prominently in the 1989 movie Red Scorpion by Nikolai Rachenko (Dolph Lundgren) is an FN FAL mocked up to resemble the experimental Russian Avtomat AO-63 assault rifle. The FN FAL used in the movie has been modified with twin barrels, a custom stock, the pistol grip from a Vektor SS-77 general purpose machine gun, an enlarged magazine/foregrip and a Lewis gun's drum magazine mounted on top. Upon closer inspection only the lower barrel can actually be seen firing; presumably this is because building a weapon that could fire from two barrels would be a far more difficult modification, and the discrepancy isn't that noticeable on-screen.

As of 2017, the AO-63 assault rifle has been revealed and will be on display at the Kalashnikov museum.
