The Zastava M85 was a projectile weapon made by the Tau'ri of Yugoslavia. It has a short barrel, a folding metal stock and a muzzle brake.

The Zastava M85 differs from the similar Russian-issue Kalashnikov AKS-74U in that the M85 has a ventrally-folding stock like the AKMS rather than the AKS-74's (AKS-74U's thereof ) side-folding stock.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Colonel Alexi Zukhov, the commander of the first official Russian SGC team, thought the Zastava M85 came from his native Russia. Thus, M85 is almost certainly still standing in for AKS-74U. Very little of post-1970s Soviet/Russian hardware has yet made it into movie armories. It simply hasn't been phased out - every one out of four Russian police troopers (not all of them bear officer's ranks) supplement their handguns with this carbine, as well as every tank driver and radio operator, so it's in high demand. And most viewers don't know the difference anyway.
  • The first official Russian SGC team used Zastava M85s in a mission into the Marduk's tomb on P2X-338. (SG1: "The Tomb")
