M-46 guns are involved in the Sinai Peninsula

22
Egyptian troops conducting anti-terrorist operations in Sinai have fire support from Soviet-made M-46 cannons, reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta.




In addition to Egypt, M-46 was also popular in Syria and Iraq. “In these armies, as well as in the armed forces, about fifty more states developed the Perm gunsmiths for their high firing range - up to 27 490 m. The initial speed of the 33-kg projectile reaches 930 m / s. The rate of fire is 8 rds / min, ”the publication says.

In addition to high-explosive fragmentation projectiles, armor-piercing weapons were created that can effectively deal with heavy armored vehicles. In addition, China and Iran have developed new ammunition capable of hitting targets at a distance of 38 km.



Weight guns - 7,7 t, calculation - 8 people. Can be transported at speeds up to 50 km / h.

At present, the ground forces of Egypt have more than 400 of such guns, some of which continue to be used directly in the units.

          But the question excites me: if such weapons are used, what kind of counter-terrorist operation is there? And should tourists go to that area ...
          And then we have people all in Sharm al-Sheikh waiting for the opening of flights, and there heavy artillery works.

        Kalash, only bigger! They made products for a real war, reliability, simplicity, nowhere else to go! Now there is better, but the price, oooh!

        with so many guns per ten kilometers of front

        In WWII, our brought up to three hundred per kilometer. fellow Now this can be seen, perhaps, only in Kim.

          Well, yes, there are about 8000 trunks on the demarcation line. And in the coverage area - half of Seoul. And from missile artillery, no missile defense can save. Apparently the Americans understand this and prefer to crush Chubby with sanctions, not daring to openly invade.

            It’s possible to cover the receiver’s positions with all the equipment and people, how can you survive during this yourself? The question is not idle.

    In this case, the enemy is already in advance: “instantly at sea”: such a density of fire cannot be resisted with LITERATE USE

    In Syria, even more chthonic substances remained. S-23 for example.

    130mm is a good tool. On the Kuril Islands, ATCs were dragged .. and the range is serious .... only now in the presence of drones - problems with mobility and survivability

    Zionists call these guns camels - the massive blow of the Syrian M46 division in 1982 on the phenomena in the Bekaa valley was very effective and even got its own name - "Fury of the Camel"
