The United States intends to release for the Middle East "Soviet weapons"


At present, the Pentagon is purchasing hundreds of millions of dollars for such allies in the Middle East. Recently, the military offered to American businessmen themselves to start production of popular types of Soviet weapons.

At the same time, the military requires potential manufacturers to submit five functioning prototypes. The Pentagon will not help in the process of their creation and requires that companies also present a “well-established spare parts supply mechanism”. The main condition - everything must be made in the USA.

First of all, the US Department of Defense proposed to launch the production of a modernized Kalashnikov machine gun (PKM).



“Judging by the documents, American companies have responded to the proposal. Thus, in the database of the international website of customs declarations Importgenius, there is an act of shipment, according to which the daughter of the Ukrainian state company Ukrspetsexport, Ukrinmash sold the American Purple Shovel kit of working design documentation for the production of machine guns KT-7,62 for 7 million UAH ($ 267 thousand .). A set of explanatory notes, assembly drawings, specifications, working drawings of parts, diagrams and 3D models were handed over to the Americans on the 29 flash drive last December, ”the publication says.

KT-7,62 is the Ukrainian version of the modernized Kalashnikov machine gun, which is produced at the Mayak plant in Kiev.

It is also reported that Florida plans to create facilities for the production of AK-47 machines Kalashnikov USA. After entering the sanctions, she broke off all relations with the Russian concern and promises to launch the production of famous automata herself.

What the US already produces from Soviet-made weapons is the counterpart of the RPG-7 hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers. It deals with three companies at once.

      What does the ruin have to do with Kalashnikov's intellectual property?
      They took a bite of the geldings and insolently label Kalashnikov, they intended to hang up their own iron.
      In that case, why bother with the garden, they would buy AK "blueprints" from the Papuans of New Guinea. The result is the same.

          Good day Vitaliy hi
          Romanian in Transnistria enjoyed. Come across periodically. Tutelka made in the tutelka, inscriptions only in Latin.
          Shoot the same, killer. But if you give a long queue - from the openings of the gas tube the golimy soot began to fly in flakes !!! Sinned on the quality of ammunition, also shot Romanian licensed.
          Another thing that cut his eyes: once on a block two Moldovan collective farmers were disarmed. The trunks were taken away, and to these miserables a pendell. Trunks laid next to ours. In the morning they began to gather at the base, and the Romanian receiver, overnight covered with rye !!!

      What suits? Patents have never been registered, and if they were, then their validity is limited to 25 years.

          Yes. If the technological background allows.

          Quote: Andrey K
          Oh yes, it was developed on the basis of a copy of the Finnish Kalash - Valmet Rk 62, and not on the original
          "Their validity is limited to 25 years" in Jewish, without further ado, they went around

          Not. Galil we copied from Original, with STG-44. lol
          By the way, Kalashnikov did not register a patent for AK-47 and, accordingly, there can be no talk of “copyright”. Learn the materiel.

      And I think it's time to get on Chinese tracks and all that can be done on their technology, labels, etc. start producing. The American and European jurisdictions will be reduced in status, and if sent, not particularly choosing words.

    There patent terms are long gone. And as I understand it, the weapons of the 1950s-70s years of release will be copied, which are morally obsolete here. The main thing is still not a machine for launching bullets and grenades, but the ammunition itself.

      I always thought that weapons are certainly good, but the main thing is always a soldier and a military spirit.

    American cartridges that were delivered to the Kalashnikov assault rifles quickly killed the barrel. Were of poor quality. Let them rivet.

      I bought cartridges from Kyrgyzstan, that's what the barrel kills! But they’ll come down for the shooting range, and I’ll scrape new trunks as well.

    In a decade-long dispute, the point is set ... that the M16 rifle or an AK automatic rifle is better ... the Americans admitted defeat.

            Spare weapons in case you need to shoot a rebel who is in a crowd of civilians. It’s better not to do such things from weapons that are personally written on you. And then then the military police will suddenly conduct all sorts of examinations, they will begin to pester with all sorts of stupid questions, such as why five civilians were shot from your machine gun for a company with a terrorist?
            Well, nafig, they won’t understandly don’t give them to local justice, but they can deprive them of prizes. Therefore, it is better not to shine your trunk. And Kalashnikov if that, you can immediately throw in the same place and blame everything on the terrorists.

    Now it’s clear why Americans bought cartridges of 7.62 * 39 from the warehouses of the Federal Reserve for millions. To the babble of the Racean officials about their obsolescence and inappropriateness. Business, nothing personal.
