Default questions about russian and british army

I know the AK-74 is the Russia's main battle rifle now but what other roles is the AK-47 still used in the Russian Army? And are the black clad SAS a different squad from the frontline SAS troops?

The SAS is split into 4 Sabre squadrons .....A, B, D, G. Each Sabre Squadron is divided into four 16-man Troops with different responsibilities (Air Troop, Boat Troop, Mobility Troop, and Mountain Troop).
The CRW (Counter Revolutionary Warfare)Wing is made up of one squadron, which rotates every 69 months. The squadron is split up into two troops:

Red Troop (Air and Mountain Troops)
Blue Troop (Boat and Mobility Troops)

While the anti-terrorist team deals mainly with domestic incidents within the UK, the CRW(Black clad SAS) is active all over the world

I would guess that the AKM is still in use in some parts of the Russian military.
but the main AR is AK-74. Both of them are "assault", not "battle" rifles
since they are not chambered for "full-sized" cartridge but the
7.62x39 and 5.45x39 mm.

In addition to the [URL="http://world.guns.ru/assault/ak74m_91.jpg"]AK-74M[/URL], the [URL="http://club.guns.ru/images/an94-1.jpg"]AN-94[/URL] is also used within the Russian military
by the elite forces.
the "role" of the AKM is generally not that different from the more modern 5.45 caliber
ARs.

We Finns use the bigger 7.62x39 caliber in our RK-62 and [URL="http://img100.imageshack.us/img100/8716/1113200355img74689ie.jpg"]RK-95[/URL] assault rifles
because of the advantages which bigger bullet has in our terrain.
