Developer: AGS-30 has no equal maneuverability

30
The automatic grenade launcher AGS-30 has no equal in maneuverability on the battlefield and is in high demand abroad, reports RIA News statement of the head of the branch office of the Central Design and Research Bureau of Sports and Hunting weapons (part of the JSC "High-Precision Complexes") Yuri Amelina.




The AGM-30 thirty-millimeter automatic grenade launcher complex is in great demand in the conditions of modern combat. A grenade launcher with a machine weighs 16 kilograms. About 14 kilograms - the mass of the box with the shots. It can be moved around the battlefield by one fighter, constantly changing positions,
Amelin told the agency.

According to him, the AGS-30 developed by the Tula Instrument Design Bureau (KBP) "has no analogues in the world in maneuverability."

For comparison, an American 40-mm grenade launcher with similar combat capabilities weighs about 50 kilograms,
noted the specialist in the gun.

AGS-30 adopted by the Russian army, and we are allowed to sell it abroad. Foreign customers are queuing for this sample,
he said.

Amelin added that the complex, which has a range of destruction of targets up to 2-km, “is the work of an outstanding gunsmith Vasily Petrovich Gryazev in the field of rifle-and-grenade armament”.

He began to work closely with this at the beginning of 1990 in the KBP, when he made automatic guns so much that this niche was to some extent filled and closed,
he said.

The agency’s reference: “AGS-30 is intended to destroy manpower, fire weapons and enemy equipment in open trenches, ravines and on reverse slopes with the ability to quickly transfer fire to a suddenly appeared target. Its rate of fire can reach more than 400 shots per minute, grenade speeds over 180 meters per second. The grenade launcher was designed to replace the more massive AGS-17. ”

      And so that there is always enough ammunition, or, with such a rate of fire, just have time to bring it. Although ... now the attack does not go in chains.

      I don’t understand, to carry it on a fig in hands, plus ammunition? This time.
      Secondly, the American has programmable grenades, and they explode using a ballistic computer, for example, behind an obstacle, a trench, from the side, etc. Found what to compare! computer and accounting accounts.

      Remember a rifle like KSVK !? Now, if you dig into YouTube, then you can easily find a couple of videos for the year 96-98, where Ichkerian forest brothers use it. She then, by the way, was a prototype ...

    Yes, against the 17th weighs much less. And drag in battle - every gram is felt.
    AGS-17 "Flame" Weight, kg:
    Grenade launcher with machine tool and sight - 31
    Grenade Launcher Body - 18
    Boxes with pomegranates - 14,5

      Well, for some reason, they modestly kept silent about the effectiveness of the munition used, while the NATO 40x46 had it higher than 30x29 ... If you compare, then the same MK19 with the Balkan.

    Automation is unique. Fire leads with a CLOSING shutter! This extinguishes the return, and it was possible to reduce the mass.
    But the “Balkan” 40 mm with a “flying away” sleeve is, in my opinion, a masterpiece in general!

      about "Balkan" 40 mm with "flying away

      You don’t have to give it to the troops, there the line has been set up for decades, the plan is fulfilled, everyone is well, etc. Your thought is noble in all respects, but do not put it into our real easel-made. power. Alas, the heart is compressed as if it were good, but the loom is economic risks and costs, and only then the benefit for motor-rings and SPN I struggle with this every day ---- with costs and needs.

    What’s called, feel the difference (comparing with AGS-17). Yes, thing. Little moment:
    RIA Novosti reports a statement by the head of the branch of the Central Design and Research Bureau of Sports and Hunting Weapons

    So think now: is the AGS-30 a sporting or hunting weapon? request laughing

      It depends on how the grenade launcher feels when firing at a group target, sports interest (how many have killed in one burst?) Or hunting excitement (how would they all be killed there?).

    Great grenade launcher, for sure! He's probably 10 years old or so. "Designed to replace AGS-17." Just something I did not see him in the army! And so two soldiers run with the old and heavy AGS-17! And when he shoots, he jumps like that’s why they select the shooter healthy so that mine can keep him! And for some reason the old AGS-17 is being installed on the equipment ?! So where is he 30th in the army? Tell me.

    The unique "weight")))) for firing on squares is the "mark". It was alleged that it was being developed against the “army of a neighboring state" ... as they called names in the USSR in the recent past - China ... In the work - a glimpse ... especially by trained calculation ..

    The car is good, but the caliber of 40 mm is even better in its striking effect. Comparison with Amerovsky is incorrect.

    What is more effective? Firstly, 40 * 46 is for grenade launchers, that is, you are comparing two different types of ammunition. The Vog-25 and Vog -17 types. By your logic, the grenade launcher is more effective than the automatic grenade launcher, in view of the larger caliber. And the fact that the grenade launcher flies 400 meters, but do not take into account more than 1,5 km from the gas station? And the fact that ags speed is an order of magnitude higher too? And secondly, a 19 * 40 grenade is used in MK-53 grenade launchers. Here, in the article, they forgot to add a box with a b / c that weighs 19 kg. That is, the actual weight of the grenade launcher is over 70 kg. It is simply ridiculous to compare it with our counterparts. Even 17- steeper. The 30th has a 15 percent higher aiming range, a 50 percent higher rate of fire, and 2,5 times less weight with almost the same 30/32 b / c compared to the MK-19. In favor of the 19th Allocate only a wider range of ammunition. And the higher efficiency of our grenades was proved a very long time ago.

    In 1978, comparative tests of the GP-25 grenade launcher were carried out with a VOG-25 shot and a 40-mm M-203 grenade launcher mounted on an M16A1 rifle with an M-406 shot. Tests have shown a significant advantage of a domestic grenade launcher and a shot to it over a similar US production system. VOG-25 and M-406 shots were compared by firing on the terrain where the target environment was located, simulating an openly located manpower (lying growth targets). During these tests, it was revealed that the frequency of target destruction in a tactical field from a grenade of a VOG-25 shot is 3-4 times higher than from a fragmentation of a fragmentation grenade from an M-406 shot.

    For reference, the m-406 grenade is just the caliber 40 * 46, about which you mentioned.

      in grenade launchers MK-19 a 40 * 53 grenade is used.

      I agree, my jamb. I meant the comparison of ammunition to the MK-19 and AGS-17/30. As for the comparison of grenades to the grenade launcher, the VOG-25 and VOG-25P really showed higher results in the tests - this is an indisputable fact.

        The issue of money is not small. Only. Plus rear - technical. Removal of "obsolete", but new from storage. Warehousing. Service and repair. Training (including manuals, tables, course of shooting and equipment of directors of shooting). Inventory creation incl. in units, parts and warehouses. So the chain is long and therefore not fast. And to AGS -17 everything is in stock. Yes, and the "special" motivation is not visible))))

    The answer is simple, there are very few troops in the 30s yet. But the question is not so much funding as the army bureaucracy. Replacing weapons with new ones until the old has exhausted their resources is quite difficult, and many commanders prefer not to bother with this until they get direct order from above.

      However, the MTR is not just troops, and they can certainly afford a certain amount of good weapons, even in Syria.

    Mogut. But this does not mean that they will “shine” this weapon on the camera. And so in many companies of special armaments in special forces brigades, they are still in service with the 17th.
