Invention of firearms weapons became one of the key milestones in the military stories mankind, and the development of metal processing technologies made it possible to turn the improvement of these weapons into a virtually endless process, where each successive sample is better than the previous one.
However, at times, engineering thought gave out such weapon models that remain relevant tens of years after their creation. Such unique models include the self-loading Simonov carbine (SKS) of the 7,62 mm caliber, which was adopted by the Soviet Army in the distant 1949 year and served for a decade along with the Kalashnikov machine gun and the Degtyarev machine gun.
High power, accuracy, ease of maintenance, reliability and unpretentiousness - thanks to these characteristics, the SCS received deserved respect in dozens of countries around the world where it was adopted.
For the Simonov carbine, four types of bullets were created that made it a certain kind of universal weapon, allowing you to solve various tasks on the battlefield: the ordinary one with the steel core, the tracer, the armor piercing incendiary and the incendiary.
In the video, the famous Russian military leader Semyon Pegov clearly demonstrates that with what kind of bullets he can pierce the SCS.
