Info
The SK-12 is the main battlefield rifle of the Tibetan Armed Forces. The SK-12 was designed between 2001-2009 as part of Shigatse Group's program to replace the venerable SK-9 Assault Rifle, which was itself part of Tibet's own Advanced Combat Rifle Program. It entered service in 2014 as a special forces assault rifle before replacing the SK-9 in 2015.

The SK-12 is constructed from a nickel-based alloy to prevent the weapon from freezing in low altitudes and freezing temperatures. using lessons learned from the SK-9, Shigatse Group chose this alloy due to its resistance to thermal expansion and contraction. This feature has proven vital in several rescue operations and counter-terror operations within the Himalayas.

Info
The SK-9 Assault Rifle was the previous main battlefield rifle of the Tibetan Armed Forces. It was originally designed between 1980-1995 in Tibet's own Advanced Combat Rifle Program, which was part of a larger series of modernization projects to contain the growing power of the PRC. It officially entered service in 1998 and served faithfully until 2015, when it was officially replaced by the SK-12 Assault Rifle.

The SK-9 is designed from an earlier steel-nickel alloy which was resistant to thermal expansion, but proved unable to handle the coldest temperatures in Tibet for very long, resulting in the freezing of gun lubricant, causing the rifle to be inoperable. Despite this weakness in the harsher regions of the Himalayas, however, it remains as reliable as the day it first entered service. In spite of not being actively constructed by Shigatse Group, many SK-9s remain in military surplus stores or else can be commissioned by licensed gunsmiths.
