US Navy Receives Advanced Projectiles

22
The Pentagon placed an order with Orbital ATK for new MK419 Mod 1 fuses for 127-mm high-explosive fragmentation projectiles Mk187, reports MIC with a link to the resource navyrecognition.com.

MK419 Mod 1 Fuse Usage Pattern

It is reported that the MK419 Multi-Function Fuze (MFF) fuse was developed in 2002, and its advanced version MK2014 Mod 419 was introduced in 1.

“Both the old and the new versions of the fuse can operate in five different modes:
- non-contact for shooting at air targets (projectile explodes at a certain distance from the air target);
- non-contact for firing at ground and surface targets (a projectile explodes at a certain height above the surface of water or land);
- remote (projectile explodes after a certain time after the start of the flight);
- shock;
- automatic non-contact (factory setting) ",
- stated in the material.

In the automatic mode, it is possible to shoot both at air and surface / ground targets without additional installations.

MK419 Mod 1 is a simplified and yet more functional version of the model MK419.

According to the resource, "the new modification consists of 31 details, whereas the basic version of the fuse was assembled from 37 elements." The fuse has become easier to use and use, as well as cheaper to manufacture due to the simplified design.

The transaction value was $ 20,8 million. The number of ordered fuses is not called.

    Judging by the value of the transaction, this is only an experimental batch.

    Well, on a piece of paper as usual. Everything was smooth on paper, but forgot about the ravines. Zamwolt is also good. It may be the same.

      If you can tell the difference between a wedding or a funeral procession when dozens of men armed to the teeth fly to the neighboring village on off-road vehicles scorching in all directions from dozens of men armed to the teeth flying to the neighboring village on the off-road vehicles scorching in all directions in order to capture it, then I wish you good luck.

        Maybe then it's better not to shoot at all?

          When you live in Switzerland it’s easy to talk about conventions or when you are a resident of Oslo, why not teach Arabs and Jews how to be friends with each other? However, from my experience, all these “right” ones when they themselves are pressed become the most cruel and their entire civilization disappears somewhere. So yes, it’s better not to fight at all, to live with everyone in the world and not to shoot at anyone, but as practice shows, then the war will come to you and there will be terrorists in Stockholm and Oslo, Geneva and Helsinki.

          I’m interested, the press service of the Russian Ministry of Defense told me just now how many thousands of sorties were carried out in Syria, how many thousands of headquarters were destroyed and how many tens of thousands of militants were destroyed. Do you know what you did not mention? Correctly. How many civilians were destroyed together / instead of militants. Therefore, do not rush to judge others. hi

            Your aircraft also somehow do not bother with this issue. On the stone because of the fence there they’ll beat out of everything that can shoot. To judge whether it is good or bad - I will not. Sometimes the military does not leave a choice. But citing the example of Syria - look what is happening in Iraq. There will be civilian casualties among them. And significantly.

              You are absolutely not aware of what you are writing about. What is allowed by the powers that be is not allowed to us. In our country, the prosecutor’s office investigates every case of death or wounding of civilians. Many wrap the strap. Ours in Gaza ring all tenants before striking. Before Lebanon and Gaza, leaflets from aircraft were scattered before the attacks asking local people to leave the zone of future shelling.

              We cannot respond proportionally since we are 7 million, and there are hundreds of millions of them.

                And you believe my numbers? See again the question - whose information is CORRECT. And who to believe. Do you believe your media, I mine - and that with caution. But the way Alepo was taken cannot be compared with Masul. Again, if you believe the Russian Defense Ministry. I believe, I myself served in this structure.

                      Recall, as previously reported by EADaily, according to the Kurdish news agency Rudaw, up to 200 people could die from an airstrike on three houses in western Mosul in which civilians were hiding. The bodies of more than 130 people who were in the shelter equipped in the building were recovered from under the ruins of one of the houses. About 100 more people were killed in attacks on two other buildings.

            I spoke a little about that. I think if there is no certainty that these are militants, then there is no need to shoot. Practice shows that often there is nothing to climb with their charter into someone else’s monastery. They stirred up a hornet's nest in an attempt to reformat the world as they like. And rightly so. Because they did this not for humanity, but only for themselves.

    The media leaked information that these new shells can change the flight path, as much as 90 degrees. Probably their purpose ... shooting from around the corner ... What pendosy will not come up with. Pragmatists, however.

    In the automatic mode, it is possible to shoot both at air and surface / ground targets without additional installations.

    How's that?

      The default setting. We set up the operating range of 5 meters at the factory, and it will work at 5 meters. But if the user wants in 3 or 10, then let him deign to program independently.

        possible without additional settings

        I read it differently, I almost fell into the sediment, it's a breakthrough))
        And as for the settings - I don’t think that the army will set up something there, they will write how many and which ones and where to bring it - they will bring it and set it up themselves.
