Heckler & Koch officially unveils replacement for the G36 assault rifle

35
At the SHOT Show 2018, held in Las Vegas, an official presentation of the new HK433 machine gun was held.


The Heckler & Koch 433 is a modular compact assault rifle in 5,56x45mm caliber. The new assault rifle "combines the best aspects of the G36 and HK416 rifles" and is positioned as a replacement for the G36, which the German Ministry of Defense refused to purchase in 2015.

Heckler & Koch officially unveils replacement for the G36 assault rifle


HK433 is available in six versions, which differ in barrel length. The developers indicate that the new rifle is compatible with the accessories and some elements of the G36, HK416 and AR-15 machine guns (on the basis of which the army M16 and M4 are created). In this case, the arrows, previously used all of the above models, will be able to fully work with HK433, since their key elements (the store eject button, the fuse and the translator of fire) are located at the same places.

The mass of HK433 ranges from 3,2 to 3,6 kg and depends on the length of the trunk. The length, depending on the length of the barrel and the position of the telescopic butt, can be from 58 to 106, see. HK30 is compatible with grenade launchers, including HK4179 and GLM / GLMA700, transmits "Warspot"

    Perhaps a good device. And we all think which caliber to take 5,45 or 7,62. They would take the AK-15 from 7,62 and people wouldn’t be fooled.

      Appearance is not bad, but how this device will show itself in the harsh conditions of combat reality is still a big question.

          This device is designed just for reliable operation.
          it can be lowered into water, it can be clogged with sand - all Kalash chips are implemented

            Let’s look and see. Kalash proved its unpretentiousness and indestructibility, but this news has not yet been used anywhere in combat conditions. So your bold statement for now, keep the commercials on the heels for years.

              It has already been used for several years in special forces and personally by part of soldiers from the US Army as an additional weapon to the service weapon.

                  it seems that part of the group that had been occupying bin laden was also armed with them
                  the French and 2 more countries from Europe I don’t remember who they buy for the special police units.

                Where does this information come from? What is being exploited. The public was first informed about the new weapon in the German magazine "Europäische Sicherheit & Technik" # 2 2017. And the article says that the presentation took place this year. Maybe you are talking about HK416.

              AK has implemented over 400 design patents
              and not all of them - the addition of piccatini strips, pens and other body kit
              part of these decisions was laid by the construction of 416, and then 433.

              watch the commercials of the company, the views of gunsmiths who test the trunks.
              I was once impressed by the red-hot barrel 416, which continued to shoot -
              everything worked for her, but gradually it became more and more difficult to insert a horn.
              (at Kalash, at that temperature, wood burns)

                I watched a commercial of chips of lays.
                Arshavin grunted them with a pleased face, recommended for use. I bought a pack ... and you know what? It's not tasty.

                HK G 36 was positioned as a rifle of the future. Such a nano-tech prodigy, and Germany didn’t want to arm it at all. And Spain with Portugal, and many more ... And then it happened to go to the burghers in sultry Afghanistan
                (by the way, after more than 10 years, after adopting this rifle) and .... it doesn’t shoot, it doesn’t shoot in combat conditions and that’s it, and even howling with a wolf ... it doesn’t shoot.

                There have been rumors about HC for a long time (and not only rumors) that over decades they have grown fat lobbyists, and so they live.

                    KK is the young second, and they are exported only to the brainchild of Mikhail Timofeevich.
                    The fact that the spacecraft have now hit the business does not cancel the fact that the AK family is a proven weapon in the world for war.

        Fedorov answered this question in 1916 ... 6,5 x 50 cartridge

        The Arisaka cartridge was not suitable for automatic weapons. The bullet was attached to the shank, and not in the center, so it warped with lateral acceleration (feed).
        A similar 6x49 cartridge was developed in the USSR for the entire main wearable weapon, with excellent persistence, good armor penetration, but a weak damaging effect (because of which it was not accepted). Since modern cartridges are very poor at overcoming the protection of body armor, this cartridge could partially solve the problem (but at the cost of increased returns).

      n & k is very bad at serious novelties
      the company has shown itself well only in improving or customizing existing solutions.
      in fact, project 416 and 433 are the company's first successful new product for many years.
      and then say, this novelty is the exploitation of technical solutions that have been tested in the AK for many years

          and in your opinion the use of the solution - did it take a specific part and screw it into its mechanism? look at the company's brochure - they directly talk about borrowing from Kalash.

            Well, in this vein, if you talk about it, then the trigger was built on the basis of m1, which in turn is original and patented by the brainchild of D.M. Browning. And the method of locking the barrel is similar to the m1 and the Manlicher rifle. And he also has a barrel, a store and butt.a barrel is clearly steren with silicon rifles and self-propelled guns yes

    Why the article does not mention one of the main features of the unit i.e. rejection of plastic in favor of aluminum? Hecklers finally got a sobering from a plastic dope. Indulged in plastic toys and that's enough.
