Ukroboronprom has completed the tests of the UAG-40 automatic grenade launcher

The automatic UAG-40 grenade launcher produced by Ukraine has passed state tests, the military portal reports Ukrainian Military Pages


UAG-40 (universal automatic grenade launcher caliber 40 mm) - 40-mm automatic machine-based grenade launcher with belt feed developed by KB "Exact Mechanisms".

Ukroboronprom has completed the tests of the UAG-40 automatic grenade launcher


According to the project manager, the total weight of the grenade launcher is 30 kilograms. Carrying is carried out by two fighters: one is directly grenade launcher, the second - ammunition. For comparison, the American counterpart (MK-19) is twice as heavy - 65 kg.

The mechanism of UAG-40 is based on automation with a free gate. Nakol cap and shot occur in coasting. Submission of grenades - tape (American metal tape M16). Grenades are high-speed, using all existing types of grenades of the NATO standard (40х53 mm).

As Ukrainian developers say, if we compare all the 40-mm grenade launchers that are currently being produced, then the grenade launcher is at the forefront in terms of "low weight - high accuracy". At the same time, the design contains a small amount of parts, new coating technologies, including the bore.

To improve shooting accuracy, Ukrainian experts have introduced a multi-stage barrel cutting. It performs the function of a whirligig, which rotates the structure, but at the same time itself remains in place in one position. Also in the design, the fighter sits on a tripod, in this way it is additionally balanced and has all the functions of accurate approach, the grenade launcher manufacturers report

      Also in the design, the fighter sits on a tripod, in this way it is additionally balanced and has all the functions of an accurate approach, according to the manufacturers of the grenade launcher

      But in general, the idea of ​​adding to the weight of the grenade launcher the weight of the shooter in order to compensate for the lack of mass during the shot and thereby compensate for the return is original. True, I wonder what the shooter's health state is after shooting a couple of tapes in bursts.
      However, in the video there is no such insanity. Grenade launcher is normally fixed

          The same idea came to mind when creating the AGS 40, and by weight they would have compared with a bronze mortar, the Mk47 Mark 47 Striker weighs 41 kg together with the machine tool and the aiming system and the weight of the UAG without an aiming system. Anyway, they’ve been doing it since 2010, but it turns out that they just finished the tests.

        This is an idiotic idea .. along with the idea of ​​equipping a machine-gun belt with sniper power supplies .. The grenade ags do not have a large striking area .. therefore, plant one grenade on the other top of dibilism .. therefore they do not stabilize such devices much ..

        In this case, this does not pretend to originality, pure plagiarism of the hated Soviet ukrovermaht. For example, a DShK machine gun, model already in 1938:

        To extinguish the return of weapons due to the weight of the shooter, our grandfathers also came up with.

            To improve the accuracy of shooting, Ukrainian experts introduced multi-stage barrel cutting. It performs the function of a yule, which twists the structure, but at the same time remains in place in one position.

            Explain that this generally means "twist the structure." What design do these grooves twist? Is it a construction shots or something else? If so, then what is special about these rifling or earlier in the Ukrainian military industry only smooth-bore weapons did? Or is it still talking about something really different (construction)?

    Just because the weight of the gun does not reduce. What is the loss of characteristics. I know that S.P.Korolyov gave his engineers a huge premium if they reduced the weight of the developed missile in their calculations by just 1 Kg. And here already cut in half. How much will this rocket launcher withstand shots? On what account will the bangha bury the calculation of this instrument be?

      Not always. It may turn out that the model being compared is simply overwhelmed.
      AGS-17 with a machine tool and a sight without ammunition weighs 31 kg.
      AGS-40 with a machine tool and a sight without ammunition weighs 32 kg.
      AGS-30 with a machine without BC - only 16 kg.
      By the way, the new American Mk 47 Striker AGS with a machine tool and a sight without ammunition weighs 41 kg.

    The question is, why do you need an easel grenade launcher with such a weight, if you get away, then you need to throw it, if in comparison. The average weight of the 81/82-mm mortar, disassembled into three main parts (barrel, bipod and base plate) is about 50 kg. The mass of the 81/82-mm high-explosive fragmentation mine ranges from 3,2 to 4,4 kg. In terms of the effectiveness of fire and as a result of the defeat of targets, this mortar surpasses all similar easel grades.
    Manual grenade launcher AGS-30, 30 mm automatic grenade launcher system. Weight without scope and cartridge box, only 16 kg. The capacity of the cartridge box, 30 shots, still no matter where.

      Dear remics, I want to add my modest "five cents" to the conversation about AGAS. After all, it wasn’t just because of the presence of “Wishlist” that was invented in the late 60s. And in my personal experience, the main reason for its adoption is the ease of transferring fire and creating its high density in the right place. In the “tray” you mentioned, in order to fire at another target, which is, for example, 200-300 meters away, often it was necessary to draw the entire calculation: tear off the ground and rearrange the base plate, move the tripod, set the scope to horizontal, aim at goal and only after mines throw the target. AGS transfers fire from one target to another in a couple of seconds. Moreover, he has a 4x zoom and is guided by a grid similar to that of the SVD. Accuracy of 400 meters is quite sufficient for throwing grenades into separate windows and you can imagine a grenade explosion indoors. And it is clear that the mortar is not capable of such a thing. But the AGS can, like him, shoot at targets that are hiding in cover and from closed positions. This is exactly what happened in the Czech Republic when at night the “barmalei” got in the habit provoking the shooting of one of our units at another. They hid behind the trees between the villages and at night gave a couple of bursts in both directions. And then the concert began with firing from infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers.
      So the calculation after a couple of sleepless nights, the AGS calculation took this grove in the afternoon and set it at a high elevation range. “Half-snails” were enough to stop the shelling. Indeed, the next morning the scouts found a bunch of bloodied clothes in that grove ...
      As for the Ukrainian, and for the same purpose, American product, the films show the most idiotic type of direct fire. One normal sniper will be enough to stop this disgrace.
