The Kriss Super V submachine gun was developed by Transformational Defense Industries (TDI). It is currently an experimental weapon.
The main advantage of the Kriss Super V is an improved control, accuracy and better grouping of hits on the target, comparing with ordinary submachine guns. It can also be fired using a single hand with adequate accuracy. Axis of recoil in this submachine gun is in line with the firing hand. This feature minimizes muzzle climb after each shot. It also uses a moving weight attached to the bolt, to divert recoil force to the bottom. It also employs hydraulic buffer assembly to decrease rate of fire.

This submachine gun has selective fire modes, including single fire, 2-shpt burst, and full-auto modes. Fire mode selector is ambidextrous, as well as a manual safety switch. Cocking handle is folding, and is located from the left side of the gun. It is not moving when the gun is fired.
