Did no one catch the .50 caliber rounds out of a AK-47?

The problem is it wasn't called an AK47 so you're technically right. I doubt Polaris was able to obtain one though so I would assume it was only a 7.62 x 39.

I believe there are a couple of versions of this made for passenger vehicles . . experimental

Hmmm, slush & mud, road tar, & brake dust, combined with high speed equals out of balance.

NM, saw that it wasn't announced yet. Liked this part:

Engineers shot test tires with 50-caliber rounds from an AK-47 and then subjected them to 5,000 hours of off-roading. On another outing that involved crossing a train tracks, a rail spike punctured the tread band of an NPT, but the rider kept going on it for more than 1,000 miles.

Might come in handy someday with the Raptor. You know, when the zombies come.
Are you sure it said ak-47? It should be duska (spelling) if it is Russian or M2 USA
