Syrian opposition presented a "robot" with a German machine gun

28
Militants of one of the Syrian opposition formations demonstrated a remote-controlled unit, armed with a German automatic gun "Sturmgever" during the Second World War, reports Messenger of Mordovia.




Judging by the photograph, the StG 44 is mounted on a special, rather primitive device. “A video camera was attached to an optical sight, which transmits an image to a monitor. The control is carried out with the help of a joystick, ”the author of the material comments on the image.

According to him, in the 50-60-ies in service with the Syrian army was a significant number of "Sturmgeverov." In 1970, they were completely replaced by Kalashnikovs.

Written off weapon It was stored in army warehouses, many of which were looted with the outbreak of civil war. StG 44 can still be seen in the militants of anti-government forces.

Syrian opposition presented a "robot" with a German machine gun


According to the author, “this installation, if it is disguised, of course, can pose a certain danger, but the inability to move will lead to the rapid destruction of this self-made killer robot.”

        In-in, it would be in the museum (or what collection) - there would be no price repeat . this is how the legacies of the past are lost in the wars of the present (Syria and Iraq are an example of how many were plundered and simply destroyed there)

        The collection value is represented by samples produced in Germany during the Second World War.
        Not such a rare trunk. It is still being produced in Argentina, it was produced in Turkey, Iraq, and Yugoslavia. The French foreign legion used StG 44 until the end of the 1980s, and is still used by the Brazilian police. Africa is awash with "gevers," just like AK.
        Most likely, the article refers to "Gevers" located in warehouses in the city of Aleppo. According to public information, before the Civil War, about 5 thousand StG 44 were stored hi

    everything is relative - depending on what the control unit case is made of - if it’s made of a tin, then yes, if the steel is of good thickness, then a lot of business can do

      That's it! On the one hand, of course, you can laugh, but in fact, all kinds of technologies from which they sculpt, albeit an absurd but quite working weapon, are stubbornly delivered to the barmaleas .... and this is bad.

        certainly bad, but at the same time, this indicates that they are already beginning staff shortages

    Here is the yummy! This non-combat StG-44 is terribly popular and try to find it. And in Syria, it turns out, thousands, or even tens of thousands, since they were in service.

    The handicraft remote module, of which it was, of that was blinded. And since they blinded, it means they need it. And as for the danger, I wouldn’t laugh very much ... Any, even primitive, military gadget, being used at the right time, can fulfill its direct task - to KILL ...

      More or less targeted shooting from this design is not possible. I can’t say anything for the electronics, but there’s a mistake on the mechanics of the error .. The machine is attached to the device through a thin-walled plate, on TAPPERS .., the optics generally hang on the front .. it will tear to hell after the first turn .. In general design viability of a maximum of a few shots.

        So what ? They will test a couple of times, redo the weaknesses (and this is not difficult), and the remote-controlled firing point is quite ready to really kill ... At the same time, it’s inexpensive ...

          It is necessary to redo everything .. Even the automatic machine .., there are no devices for optics .. HERE another configuration suggests itself, but if they haven’t finished it yet .. I won’t be prompted.

            Could do this on my knee, then doput how to do it better or put it together differently. It's not Newton’s bin smile To be honest, the thought itself started to improve and quickly remake without expensive gadgets laughing laughing

              I doubt it .. a person who has even a little experience in shooting, and especially in shooting weapons .. such a design can only see in a nightmare .. and certainly will not implement it. And in the picture ... the general technological level of those places .., they are unlikely to jump above it without help.

            They have a rifle attached to the module at only one point - for the forearm. Everything behind the forearm just hangs in the air. I don’t know what kind of electronics it is, but mechanically it’s illiterate.

    These storm troopers are not Wehrmacht times of the Second World War. They were already made after them in the German Democratic Republic, the Czech Republic, and somewhere in Latin America (Chile or Argentina). Then, they really sold it en masse to the Middle East. Here, it seems, there have already been articles on this subject.

    However, it has a collection value, although less than.

    How much is this device targeted? It doesn’t work out that way, you have to sit with him day and night, but you go and go to the device on the drum, then what is the significance of this invention?

    These Dushars revised the Jackal 1997 film. where Bryusvilis craps around the presidential zhonka, and a good black man bothers him ... So the device has the right to be like a bait for a sniper / like a stuffed animal with a cigarette /, or traps in a narrow corridor / tunnel / for 1 store.
