Ukrainian company has established production of barrels KBA40 for ZU-23-2

25
The Ukrainian state-owned enterprise “KB“ Artillery armament ”in pursuance of the import substitution program, for its own working capital, developed and established the production of barrels with 23-mm caliber - KBA40 for the anti-aircraft gun ZU-23-2 (2А13), сообщает Diana Mikhailova blog.




“The implementation of the CBA40 creation program required the Artillery Armament Design Bureau to master new production cycles in order to improve the ballistic characteristics of automatic guns. Now gunsmiths are preparing for the next stage of testing, which is a prerequisite for the adoption of the security forces of Ukraine by security agencies of Ukraine, ”the material says.

Product samples were exhibited at the XIV International Specialized Exhibition "Weapon and security-2017. "



It is assumed that KBA40 will allow replacing similar Soviet-made trunks, which are currently used in the ZU-23-2 anti-aircraft guns, which have proven to be an effective means of destroying both airborne and ground targets.

Performance characteristics: caliber - 23 mm, number of rifling - 10, length - 1876 mm, length with a flame arrester - 2045 mm, weight - 25,8 kg.

      There must check the quality of the main expert on military acceptance, a boy from the former Kirovograd.

        This is what the authorities intimidated as adult men of designers, they listen to a boy who has not yet finished school and teaches to make reservations.
        It’s all about patriotism, now a patriot steers in Ukraine. Whether he has a brain or not, it’s a secondary matter!

      It’s overwhelmed by what kind of light you haven’t seen, but they still don’t release high-tech spears there, although you can already figure out what kind of “quality” it is with the example of a “hammer”))

      That's why doubts about the declared resource are tormented. And no one canceled the quality issues. Wait and see.

        Hand-made pans even mortar barrels really can not do, but here for the anti-aircraft automatic gun barrels must be done, where the load compared to mortar is an order of magnitude higher. I am sure that the resource of the trunks will not reach even a thousand shots, or the rifling will be erased, or the trunks will be inflated or torn.

          I also remembered mortars, because an anti-aircraft machine gun is not a mortar, there the gas pressure inside the barrel is several times greater. So they can not reach a thousand. In other words, with a high degree of probability we are waiting for news about incidents when using new trunks.

      it was partially on the bmpd, though they in their style spoke more about the tank than about other exhibits.

    It would be if, about quality, said a German or a British. And so, gentlemen, we are all the contents of one barrel from which we are trying to evaporate.

      No need to generalize, and barrels are differently filled.
      The quality of Russian weapons is quite at a level that is demonstrated by its sales abroad. The Germans and British have to catch up to be. And the fact that Ruin was unable to establish the production of high-quality barrels for tanks and for small arms is a medical fact.

    Now the gunsmiths are preparing for the next phase of testing, which are a prerequisite for the adoption of the KBA40 by the security forces of Ukraine, ”the material says.

    And in the title of the article it is written that they have already mastered production, probably in the amount of 1 pc., From a water or gas pipe.
    They will not be able to produce anything worthwhile there anymore, only “drunk” or “collective farm tuning”. Here's an example of a masterpiece of ukroboronprom:

    It's not even that these are old "maxims", pay attention to the machine - it is made as if from a profile for erecting fences, Chinese wheels are stuck from a utility car.
    "Children's technical creativity" of their volunteers looks even more solid.

    I'm talking about one barrel with the same content. Now about catching up with the British. Libya Russia wrote off 4,5 billion greens, Algeria 4,7, Iraq 12, Syria 10, Afghanistan 11 billion dollars. This is the 6th part of debts written off for the period after 2000. What were these loans - pasta, dollars, jackets, Lada? Weapons. They themselves gave loans, then they gave weapons for loans, then they shouted to the whole world that you have a cool military-industrial complex and you are the second in the world, then you wrote off these debts. This is not even a medical fact - it is complete, sorry for the bad German, alles.

      Only you dear probably forgot when these loans in the form of equipment were given to them? I will remind Russia the successor of the USSR and, accordingly, all debts (not a single republic took upon itself) and, accordingly, all loans issued even under the Union, but here I agree with you, you need to write off debts more clearly, especially from cunning “friends”!

    They tolerated, endured, endured, endured, and then bats-patience burst. The generous Russian soul took and wrote off almost 250 billion. Let it hang, which of the Russians did it bother? If heard, there are courts in the extremes, and there are resources in the defendants. Your koment was not impressed.

    Yes, the Afghans liked it, they took it and bought it. Having gone with the child to the store, you all buy what he wants? Maybe the casket just opened, they didn’t want the good neighbors to copy the equipment.

      ? What? belay What Americans have to copy their ancient helicopters - everything has been known for so long since the times of the USSR. After all, the Americans will not deliver the latest developments to the Afghans, but they will send an old “black eagle” like the corrugation of mammoths, which Vietnam had already seen. tongue
