In Germany tested the American mortar system ADIM

US military 2 armored brigade conducted in Germany demonstrative tests of ADN 81-mm automated mortar system, reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta with reference to the Defense Blog.

Tests were held at the site Grafenwoehr. According to the magazine, “a mortar robot weighing about a ton was mounted on the base of a pickup truck HMMWV”. Four automatic muzzle brakes provide a smooth return when fired.

"ADIM functions are automated in such a way that operations, usually performed manually by a soldier, can instead be performed using electromechanical actuators controlled by a drive control system weapons (ACS) ", - says the material

The mortar has a pointing angle from -3 to 85 degrees and can hit targets at a distance of up to 6,3 km.

It is reported that "the fire control system includes the ability to automatically lay ammunition," in addition, the robotic system "independently performs ballistic calculations taking into account the meteorological situation."

      Rate of fire not reported. And so ... for a long time it was already time to automate shooting from a mortar.

            In fact, the artillery unit of the Phlox self-propelled guns is unified with the 2A80 ("Vienna") This is: "Nona", or "gun-howitzer-mortar", or a single gun ....

          Nice "mattress"! But I have in mind there is a AZ for "muzzle charging", perhaps, in a simpler way ....

            ... What about the 120mm double-barrel?

              Cool! Amos always liked me ... although, if you wish, you can also "find fault" ... 2 of the barrel means a generally more complex structure: a more complex, "bulky" AZ; ammunition .... You can recall, for example, Self-propelled guns "Coalition" ... The 2 trunk was also the same initially and the reason was the same as that of Amos. But, in the end, the 1 trunk remained. Most likely, it was possible to complete the assigned tasks with other technical solutions. So ........ everything is comparative and relatively wink ... next to the pros and cons, and vice versa.

      This is not a “machine gun”, it is a “robot”, it has completely different qualities. (Cornflower, by the way mod 1955)

    A serious weapon ... the bottom of the car will not break ... 4 muzzle brakes all the same ... and automation around ... though the weight is decent.
    In general, it is still necessary to check the effectiveness of the weapon on the battlefield. what

    I don’t know how good it is, but the Americans, if necessary, will advertise it as it should

      4 muzzle brakes? Perhaps the difficulties of translation, the age of machine translation and girls (boys) creatives smile
