Israeli army will get a new lightweight grenade launcher

22
The Israeli Defense Ministry announced a contract with Raphael for the supply of several thousand Mefatseah Kal Mishkal light grenade launchers, reports oleggranovsky.livejournal.com.




It is reported that the grenade launcher was developed over the past two years, taking into account the experience of Operation Mighty Cliff in the Gaza Strip of 2014 summer. In fact, it is a lightweight version of the Mefaceah Egozim (Nutcracker) grenade launcher on 40%.

For the first time, the Israeli army used Mefaceah Egozim in small quantities in Operation Cast Lead in the Gaza Strip in the winter of the 2008-2009.

“After a number of improvements, it was officially put into service in 2010, and during Operation Mighty Cliff of 2014, the use of this grenade launcher was widespread. To date, "Mefatseah Egoz" - one of the two RPG Israeli army along with the modern versions 66-mm M72 LAW ( "zarzir calico"), such as M72A4, M72A6, M72A7 and M72A9 ", - stated in the material.

According to the author, a serious disadvantage of “Mefatseah Egozim” is a large weight: from 8,9 to 10,3 kg, depending on the modification. The grenade launcher "Mefatseah Kal Mishkal" is designed to fix this, without losing combat effectiveness. In addition to weight loss on 40%, other TTX grenade launcher has not yet been published.

    I wonder why in front of such a big "plaque"? Protect the arrow from exhaust? At least the left hand accurately protects. Why behind?

                In addition to physics, it is necessary to understand the principle of action.
                When the shot comes out of the bell and due to its jet stream, the grenade launcher pulls forward. There is a chance of "shooting under your own legs".

        Forgive my illiteracy, here in Russia these same grenade launchers are like cockroaches from an unborn mother, of all sorts and types. And for some reason, for decades now, it’s an absolutely cylindrical shape without a lot of crap good . And they carry and carry, and in general - there are no edges to use and even close to nothing like none of them. Well, I don’t believe in the stupidity of our designers and that they "have never seen such a progressive idea," but somehow they were not inspired. Why would it be, maybe this is not a "progressive solution", but just an attempt to hide some flaws?

          Everything is simple:
          after the collapse of the USSR, progressive ideas and solutions, along with sensible designers, settled in Israel.
          I often meet such guys at Rafael.

      No, these are rubber pads that keep the granotometr from mechanical damage.

    This is probably an improvement in Israeli-Singaporean development.

    Here’s what I can’t understand - with which of ours can it be compared, and with a belmez it’s enough mm "not serious" grenade such powerful optics for guidance? By the way, when I read that in this DISPOSABLE system in the tube there is also a “small plastic counterweight” for absorbing recoil and a jet stream - I was sad for those who, instead of two RPGs, will carry one but “with a convenient counterweight” in battle. negative

      the shell is quite serious. It punches up to 200mm reinforced concrete. It’s very awesome for building combat. A counterweight is needed for firing from indoors.
