Heavily armed Chechen OMON, riot police, officers sit atop an APC near a dilapidated apartment building in the capital Grozny, on Tuesday, July 8, 2008, where a suspected Islamic militant was killed in a gunbattle. Police said two officers were wounded in Tuesday's skirmish with the rebel after dozens of federal troops and police had surrounded the building in Grozny. Although major combat in the Chechnya conflict died down years ago, small rebel bands continue to mount raids on federal forces and local pro-Moscow authorities. (AP Photo/Musa Sadulayev)

My hypothesis is that he's their "heavy gunner" (remember, these are "policemen") and that is a 7.62x39 drum on an AK-103.

It'd be nice if we could find these pix in 8000x6500 resolution for better analysis.

Yeah, it's an AK-103.

The guy on his left also has an AK-103, look at the curvature of the magazine.

Also, Check out the new type of grenade launcher he has.
