US experts appreciate the new Russian "sniper" T-5000

91
US military analysts were alarmed by the new Russian sniper rifle T-5000. According to Western experts, thanks to the range and accuracy of shooting, it can change the concept of "safe distance" and all the usual tactics of battle.


The famous American portal Popular Mechanics mentions a report on Russian weapons new generation prepared for the US Army. The document, in particular, states that Russian snipers were more "advanced" than American ones. It is already impossible to resist them on the battlefield using conventional tactics, which means that Russian snipers can simply drive the enemy out of position.

US experts appreciate the new Russian "sniper" T-5000


Popular Mechanics notes that the Dragunov rifle was previously used in the Russian army. It is described as a good weapon, but with poor optics. Because of this, SVD was effective over a relatively short distance. Meanwhile, the T-5000 is deadly accurate even at a distance of 2000 yards. These figures are superior, for example, to the high-precision American "sniper" McMillian TAC-338, which can hit a target at a distance of 1700 yards. As a result, now the Russian T-5000 is called a likely favorite in international shooting competitions.

For the production of a new rifle using the best materials and unique equipment. Coupled with good ammunition and excellent optics, the T-5000 allows, for example, an arrow to fall into an inch circle with 200 yards. It is also reported that some army units and law enforcement agencies are already arming with new rifles, although deliveries were planned to begin only in 2020.

Military experts in their report recommend that American soldiers threatened by snipers with T-5000, resort to a simple solution to the problem: immediately break contact with the enemy. Apparently, analysts are delicately hinting at the need to quickly leave the battlefield. It is noted that any doubts and fluctuations at the same time can lead to a large number of the dead. According to experts, one sniper who has taken a position is at least two victims without any negative consequences for the shooter.

The document also states the need to develop new tactics to combat this threat. We can talk about the use of smoke grenades, UAVs to search for snipers and attacks on them, as well as other special weapons.

However, the publication emphasizes that the T-5000 is only the beginning. For example, another Russian sniper rifle "Dusk" hit the target at a distance of 3720 yards. She also took a record in range 4600 yards. When firing at such distances, it is required to take into account not only the direction of the wind, but also the rotation of the Earth. As writes the edition, the similar weapon becomes the new owner of a battlefield, transfers "RG-Force"

      Recently, a series of articles has been published on the site about how AMERICAN EXPERTS rated it, tried it, tasted it. How touches some! But don’t we care about their assessments? I'm interested in the ratings of OUR, Russian specialists. This WE will confront this fucking pin. With this weapon in hand. Wouldn't it be more correct to drive all this overseas rubbish from OUR weapons with a piss rag? Where does such worship and servility come from?

        When shooting at such distances, it is necessary to take into account not only the direction of the wind, but also the rotation of the Earth.

        Earth rotation !? And why in aviation and artillery is not taken into account?

          Theoretical influences, but manual calculation is practically impossible
          the magnitude of this effect will depend on the latitude at which the shot is fired, and the direction of the bullet’s flight (it will affect the meridional leaving). For example, if you shoot at the equator in the direction strictly north, then at a distance of 2 km, the Coriolis force will deflect the bullet to the right (east) by a couple of centimeters. The higher the latitude, the less pronounced the effect. Therefore, when shooting at a latitude of 45 degrees at an angle of 45 degrees to the meridian, the deviation will be only a few millimeters.

              but it is, although on the other hand if you shoot at 2 km of speed of 900 m \ s, the flight will be 2,2 s and the speed of rotation of the earth at the equator is 464 m \ s, that’s the offset, although you can’t calculate it manually

                In the Polytechnic, the teacher explained to us like this (Coriolis acceleration): You go to the carousel, the one in which they spin, standing around the perimeter and it still rises (there used to be such, now I have not seen it in Barnaul, at least). And when the carousel was untwisted, and even raised, "you unfasten and try to take a step, and here you will feel the very acceleration." Something like this.

      Dusk is an ultra-long rifle ... its record, if it does not change sclerosis-4240 meters. Lobaev promised to bring the record to 5 km. But this is all with a special cartridge and not with a syrian rifle. Serial Dusk beats at 2500+ m ...

        Dear, have you ever fired a shotgun? So skill is not held in high esteem? And can you keep the mark on the target at least three hundred meters? What a heresy you are here! Such a rifle is a formidable weapon only in the hands of a MASTER! This is an axiom.

              The bullet is capable of reaching speeds of 900-1000 meters per second. Caliber 408 Cheytac is slightly ahead of 338 Lapua Magnum in speed and range. Initially, this cartridge was created exclusively as part of the 408st century sniper weapon project. The aim of the project was to create the best ammunition for a sniper rifle around the world. XNUMX caliber is completely made of copper alloy, it also does not have a core inside. This design method allowed developers to improve the external ballistics of the cartridge.
              Initially, the 408 caliber was developed exclusively for the United States, but later countries such as Germany and Russia began to produce it. Also, the cartridge is used not only by army snipers, but also professional hunters. This is due to the fact that specifically caliber 408 in mm 10,3x77 has a high slaughter rate and is capable of hitting large and dangerous animals, such as a bear.

                  Mole, flash the chalk. And the demon angel, perhaps, too.
                  The fact is that this prodigy does not in any tactical sense exceed, in fact, the rifle for which the cartridge was created, i.e. Chey-Tac. Just in case, let me remind you that the ICH rifle works extremely easily with a ballistic computer at once, and ours, as I understand it, does not. Extremely long-range shooting is carried out as exotic shooting competitions annually, and I remember that back in the 2000s, the Mauser rifles of 7,92 caliber held the superiority in range and accuracy in these competitions. and there were numbers far beyond 2000 yards. So everything that is written in the article is nothing more than advertising material for Mr. Lobanov’s office (with whom I even seem to have studied at IzhSTU and lived in the same dormitory - or this is the same name, I’m not saying here).

          He went to Moscow to buy a barrel and chose something in the region of 100 thousand (I don’t remember) and there are rifles for and from 1 million 800 thousand rubles .. so the opera asks the seller ..
          - so how, buy them?))
          The seller answers: yours, the first of the month, these 6 per week.

          So comrades, something like that.))) 2 lyama is not a question.

          you can’t forbid to live beautifully, but to shoot from a good trunk is a pleasure, but as you know, you have to pay for pleasure

    It raises the question of the feasibility of firing at long distances. 1 yard - about 0,91 m.
    2000 yards - 1820 m. Bullet speed (SVD) - 830 m / s. Flight time - 2,2 s. The speed of a person is 3, 6 km / h - 1m / s. Those. during the flight, the bullet will pass 2,2 m (and if the direction and speed of movement begin to change, everything will become unpredictable). And if you take into account that even imperceptible deviations of the trunk and various gusts of wind add even deviations to such a distance, then accurate shooting becomes possible only in laboratory conditions (or by a lucky chance). I do not consider shooting at a fixed target. For 2 seconds after the flash, you can always have time to fall into the trench.
    By the way, I recently saw an article that said that Russian gunsmiths abandoned the development of long-range rifles.

        The shooter, however, does not hang in inertial space, but moves with the surface at the same speed. You may be surprised, but the speed of the Earth along with the Sun relative to the center of the galaxy is about 217000 m / s, which does not prevent getting hit the target.

    Again they pump it up specially, horror stories about Russians are invented. This rifle cannot be massive in principle, the price of the basic configuration is 400 thousand rubles, with body kits and 2 times more is not the limit, only for special. units (and they used this type of rifle before, only foreign). And ordinary army snipers are fighting with SVD in this way.

            It has long been no longer relevant - neither in accuracy nor in the power of ammunition. Most NATO countries have more accurate snipers. And the SVD ammunition in their classification is not a cartridge for a sniper rifle. And in fact, personal protective equipment has improved a lot over half a century, this cartridge is clearly weak, and this accuracy was good 50 years ago, and now it’s frankly low.

    Perhaps this is a weapon from the series that “we will strike, which no one has seen so far”, of course, in case someone “raises his head”. So there’s nothing to raise your head and show off. What are few things in the United States except to prepare for war with Russia? It is possible, for example, to hold world championships in sports shooting from long-range sniper rifles. But so that without any MOKOV and WADA. And then biathlon was not interesting to watch, knowing that half of the foreign athletes are simply sick.

    Russian sniper rifle "Twilight" hit the target at a distance of 3720 yards. She also fired a record-long range shot at 4600 yards.

    4600 * 0,91 = 4181 meters.

Well, if only by the word "rifle" Because even the word sniper does not compare them. SVD is a fighter on the battlefield. Their quantity and price are not comparable. I don’t argue, and I need 5000 tons.

    Afftar kick under the joppa for using inches and yards in the material provided. The steepness is measured not in foreign words but in the clarity of the material presented, since the article is obviously not for the pros. This should be translated: the yard is 0,914 meters, an inch is 25,4 mm. Normal people just use the term MOA - and the whole business.
