Rifle "cracker" seen in Yemen

25
In fighting in Yemen, a variety of sniper weapon. There you can see the rifles of the Second World War and modern models. Recently, the network has a picture of the Russian OSV-96 "Burglar". He writes about it Rossiyskaya Gazeta.




“Most of the sniper weapons of the Hussites, fighters of the Shiite Ansar Allah movement, came from the warehouses of units of government forces. As is known, many units of the regular army and representatives of power structures have gone over to the side of the rebels. In the former government arsenals, the latest 12,7-mm OSV-96 “Burglar” was also captured, ”the article says.

According to the author, before the war, various samples of Russian small arms were supplied to the country, which has a very good reputation here. In addition to the "Burglar" special forces units received machine guns RPK-203, "Pecheneg" and "Kord".

As the newspaper notes, “large-caliber long-range rifles are best suited for combat operations in Yemen’s conditions: a comfortably positioned and well-disguised sniper can cause great problems to the entire infantry unit of the enemy”.

Hussites organized in their workshops the production of several models of large-caliber weapons. Among them are samples of calibers 12,7 mm, 14,5 mm, as well as the "gun" options in 23 and even 30 mm, which are capable of hitting targets at a distance of 4-5 km.

As for OSV-96, the development of Tula designers feels confidently not only in individual hot spots, but also in international markets, where it has to compete with the most advanced foreign models.

            Good day, Andrey. And you are not fond of fishing by chance? winked
            Just to put it mildly - I can’t believe it.
            Are your fighters the same bulbs in the standard Dedalovsky 3x12-50MST (I can’t see in the picture), or 5x20-50 (although where would it come from) at 1800 (!) Meters examined? I do not know how to attach pictures. And so I would give readers here to evaluate clearly how a human figure is located at 12 leaps on a standard Leopold grid. And imagine what part of the human figure the lamp occupies (even if in the lampshade)?

            Show at such a distance accuracy of 0,3 arc minutes (or okay - 1 with the largest ceiling you can imagine)?

            For this rifle, to put 5 shots per kilometer at 32-37 cm is already a gorgeous indicator.
            The manufacturer himself declares the accuracy of 1,5-2 MOA in greenhouse conditions.

              Why not addicted? Even in the Caucasus, he found an opportunity to go fishing and pamper with fenders yes
              Please - this is me from the captured Romanian AK "fishing" for carp laughing

              Together with the carp, grass carp got caught in the “fishing rod” (I am in the center). Holes on the scales - traces of a fishing rod of caliber 7,62X39wink

              ... Just to put it mildly - I can’t believe it.
              Your fighters are these very light bulbs ...
              ... at 1800 (!) meters considered?
              ... And imagine, what part of the human figure is the lamp (even if in the lampshade)?
              The manufacturer himself declares the accuracy of 1,5-2 MOA in greenhouse conditions ...

              To believe or not to believe is your right. Want to double-check, I even indicated the scene laughing
              The sight on our Lala was standard - POS 12x50. My fighters not only examined, but left the whole street without lighting. Combined useful with useful laughing
              Then we calmly went into the aul at night and carried out the assigned tasks.
              We did not have time for theoretical calculations. My regular sniper once from a distance of more than two kilometers, forced to evaporate from the window opening of a machine gunner, probably did not know about the "greenhouse conditions" lol
              Timur, if a soldier’s hands grow from the right place and taught math in school, he will do everything right from the available weapons soldier

            On the way to haracha, dyshnya is injected? If so, in what place to shoot from this fool, the terrain is all rugged. Be even in the head with a ballistic calculator and even if God kissed the eyes and pens. How to accept corrections when really Neither take into account the direction of the wind, is it an upward flow, especially in the dark? I would like more data repeat I do not exclude anything, but somehow it is very doubtful.

              The fighters drove to shoot a stall at the TsUM Samara post, which is on the corner of the fortress. The top photo is just this post. The height above the level in a straight line is about 4,5 - 5 meters, Shamil Khutor through the gorge at a glance. If you were there, you should have heard. There, it’s just a “Comanche” machine gunner, during our takeoff in 2002 hesitated. The commandant snorted, but late. And in the morning at the market, a bag with his head hung out. Sorry for the guy.
              About God in the eyes and pens - buddy, I had such a sniper !!!
              Really - "kissed." Subsequently, they missed him, he was from Biysk, he left home.

                      Nothing like that was already there.
                      The active phase of the CTO, by that time has long ended.

                        If you don’t get your hands on a crane, then even for fun, google it on February 26-27, 2003, Tazen-kala. Look in Google how far it is from Vedeno. And then tell me, two guys and an old man from our company, about long ended phase, about tales. The most annoying thing is that they won’t be able to answer you. Although, in all honesty, we should spit in grayling. No. bad work out cookies.

                I confirm about vision - “kissed on the eyes of God” is “super-sharp vision” when you see clearly both lines under the red line on the standard vision test table and, a little lower, typographic details, one line in small letters, in good light and if the eyes not tired, then also quite readable smile
                At the very same vision was in his youth yes , and even without long-distance optics I saw well, since I was born and raised in the steppe regions ...
                Most recently, I only learned that during World War II pilots with "super sharp eyesight" tried to have fighters in each group — they were the first to recognize air targets at extraordinary distances, and in air (and not in air, too) battle it was especially important to be the first to see the enemy- it is a guarantee of victory!

      Not a bad machine, I had a chance to “meet” it, it’s too heavy and it’s very demanding on cartridges!
      In the Middle East - many at one time bought them, past Yemen, Syria, Persians - in my opinion they also took a batch.

        I add, a trained sniper can cause problems not only to the infantry unit. Caliber, allows you to work on armor, and not just light. Hamera - just makes, even Abramsam - there is something to spoil. But, as I wrote above - the question of ammunition, it is not known whether the Husits ​​have “special” ones, machine-guns are not particularly suitable. Desert Sniper (with cover) - This is Serious! hi

      soldier OSV-96 (Russian-96) - Russian heavy semi-automatic sniper rifle chambered for 12,7 × 108 mm.
      The rifle is capable of hitting infantry at distances up to 1800 meters and can hit material targets at ranges up to 2500 meters. As an effective anti-sniper weapon, the OSV-96 keeps the shooter outside the effective range of conventional calibers, providing a clear advantage over lower caliber rifles. For the Russian language, specialized high-precision sniper cartridges of 12,7 × 108 mm 7N34 59,0 grams FMJ and AP have been developed. 50-caliber sniper rifles, such as this rifle. Heavy machine gun cartridges can also be used
