Adaptation of machine guns "Kord" allowed to install them on helicopters

Specialized Russian reconnaissance and attack helicopter MI-171Sh received 12,7-mm machine guns "KORD T" (6P49T) and "KORD B" (6P49В), reports Messenger of Mordovia.

Adaptation of machine guns "Kord" allowed to install them on helicopters




According to the departmental newspaper "Degtyarevets", this weapon “There was a special adaptation that allowed it to be installed on rotary-wing machines”.

So, “the 6P49T machine gun has an additional heat sink that provides an increased shooting mode (over 300 shots) without intermediate cooling of the barrel, as well as a special pyropealing mechanism that allows you to remotely solve the problems of misfires and other delays,” the material says.

On the Mi-17Sh 6P49T helicopter they are mounted on the right and left on the outboard farms as course machine guns.

Also, according to the experience of using helicopters in combat operations, “the issue of placing large-caliber machine guns in the side and rear openings became very topical. For these purposes is the version of the machine gun "KORD V" (6P49В) ", the publication writes.

6PI49B is designed for manual control directly by the shooter. The design of the machine gun duplicated mechanisms for firing - both from a source of onboard power, and from the trigger.

It also has "sensors with indicators of the balance of ammunition, machine gun readiness for firing, the position of moving parts." In addition, at the request of the developers of the helicopter, mechanisms are provided for withdrawing spent cartridges and collecting a link.

Machine guns were demonstrated at the salon "MAX-2017".

    The long-awaited machine guns. Coursework, this is understandable, but the fact that a large caliber in the openings will stand, this is the same when taking off and landing.

    It is high time. The rifle caliber is a good and necessary thing, but sometimes power is also needed!

      And I would not stop there.
      Why not take GSHG-7,62

      And do not do so?

      Or something more powerful:

    Well, if they are installed in the CPC - this is one question. And if by the type of PKT installation on Mi-8MT, then the effect will not be enough ... A couple of landings on dusty sites - and the machine gun wedges. Well, the nasal machine gun for firing a flight engineer is still more effective than the course on farms. IMHO

        And before landing, will you put the stubs on the machine gun? sad And then what is the point of installing it on a helicopter in general?

    What they installed is not news. Where are the shells? Again under your feet? Fun. Someone shot 12,7 in a helicopter? Do you even understand what it is? At least 14,2 have not been added.

      As if 30 * 165 mm from a helicopter works. Do you have a negative experience using 12,7 mm from a turntable, which is quite applicable even with hand? And specifically CORD even buries a bit forward when firing.

      So at the cord sleeves are thrown forward. So overboard.

    Dear VERESK, Corsair0304 posted a photo where to the left of the machine gun something like a box for collecting cartridges.
    I must say right away that I flew a helicopter once in a lifetime, in the year 1971 or 72, it was the Mi-4 of Aeroflot. Share the details like a pro.
