Today, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are mainly equipped with SVD-7,62 mm, which effectively works at a distance of 800 m. However, many consider this sniper rifle morally and physically obsolete, therefore, the Russian UR-10 rifle was proposed to replace it- Reported the press service of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.
The self-loading semi-automatic sniper rifle UR-10 caliber 7,62 mm is based on the American AR-10.
The design feature of the Ukrainian "sniper" is a monolithic connection of the cocking handle with the slide frame. This allows both pulling out the jammed cartridge and manual delivery.- reports the press service of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.
The UR-10 is equipped with a chrome-plated barrel with a life of up to 7000 shots. The claimed range of aimed shooting is 1200 m, the rate of fire - 21 shot per minute. The length of the rifle is from 103 to 124 cm (depending on the position of the telescopic butt), weight - about 5 kg. The Defense Ministry does not indicate who is the manufacturer of the UR-10, while earlier the company Zbroyar declared its readiness to supply its rifles Z-10 to the Ukrainian army, reports "Warspot"
Last year, the Ukrainian army began testing the WAC-47, which are “clones” of the American M4 / M16 assault rifles. In the future, the new model should replace the Soviet automatic machine gun AKU in the APU.
