Russian gunsmiths managed to create one of the most deadly rifles in the world - MC-116M, leads a resource Popular Mechanics opinion of an American expert.


The most deadly: American expert praised the rifle MC-116M
rifle MC-116M caliber 7,62 mm.


The uniqueness of the sniper rifle, adapted to the chambered caliber 12,7 mm, is that its destructive power is combined with noiselessness, the expert notes.

He recalls that the basic version of the 7,62-mm rifle appeared in the 1997 year. The range of its effective shooting was 800 meters. Now the Russians have introduced a new version with new qualitative characteristics.

The author notes that make quiet weapon 12,7 mm caliber - a very difficult task. As a rule, initially a less noisy caliber is used for this, for example 5,6 mm. The difficulty is also in the fact that it is not enough to muffle the weapon itself, since the bullet itself creates a powerful sound wave.

However, the Russian designers also solved this problem: the heavy bullets of the MC-116М fly at subsonic speeds without loss of accuracy. Even at low speed, the 12,7 mm bullet retains its lethal force, punching modern body armor at a distance of up to 300 meters, the material says.

As the newspaper writes, in a real exchange of fire, opponents rarely see each other in the face, more often they are guided by sounds and flashes, opening fire back. As a result, the one whose weapon is harder to detect gets a big advantage.

According to the expert, the new Russian rifle has all the chances to become the benchmark for silent sniper weapons. She will be interested in the special forces conducting operations in the conditions of urban development - it will be almost impossible to determine where the shot came from.

      Special large-caliber silent sniper rifle 6C8 VKS / VSSK "Exhaust"
      Why make a bicycle? Cartridges 12,7mm SC-130

      The bullet of the SC-130 VPS cartridge at a range of 100 m provides penetration of body armor of the 5th protection class, at a range of 200 meters - a steel plate 16 mm thick. Cartridges are of special manufacture, made on the basis of a special sleeve, the total length of the cartridge is 97 mm. A heavy bullet achieves an aiming range of 600 m

      Currently, the VSSK "Exhaust" is in service with Russia and Syria.

    It’s a pity that the rifle is not self-loading, which is important in battle conditions. Also, up to 300 m for a bulletproof vest is not enough, especially for a large caliber, it is necessary to improve the ammunition, especially the bullet core.

      Dear, this will not work. Here "or" - "or". For a bulletproof vest to penetrate at a distance of more than 300 m, you need to increase the muzzle energy of the shot. This will lead to an increase in the speed of the bullet and it (speed) will no longer be subsonic. This means that there will be no trace of a silent shot. hi

    Curiously, I'm certainly not special, but here:
    MTs-116M in 1997 fired a 7,62x54R cartridge from a pug. Its muzzle energy is from 2530 to 4150 J.
    I don’t know for sure, but I’ll assume that the article deals with the 12,7x55 cartridge (for VSSK Exhaust) its muzzle energy is from 2500 to 3650 J. All according to Wiki ...
    The question is, how much energy of bullets will fall at a distance of 300-600 m?
    It seems to me that at such a distance, both types of cartridges will not have a significant difference. A bullet with a larger mass / caliber should retain its energy longer, but its resistance is higher. But then the question is not only in energy, but also in speed.

      Given that the bullet has an initial speed of 800 m \ s 7.62x54, it will lose a percentage of 300m more speed than the subsonic 12.7mm because the resistance will be more significant at supersonic speed, well, roughly because ...

At the MC, the bullet speed is 870 m / s, at VSSK - 290 m / s ... i.e. due to speed, at the exit from the barrel the muzzle energy of a bullet from the MC is greater.

        The fact is that penetration (if it's called that) will be higher for that bullet that has a smaller caliber, all other things being equal naturally.

      Math is crucial. The cross-sectional area of ​​a bullet is measured in square units, and mass in cubic units. With increasing size, the squares increase more slowly than cubes, therefore, under all the same conditions, a heavier bullet will retain greater kinetic energy. Even with increased resistance to movement.

    The opinion of the "experts" of the children's magazine pop mech about this weapon is negligible. Even when a bullet is heard, it does not mean that the enemy can understand where they were shooting from. A competent sniper can easily neutralize the sound of a flying bullet by choosing the right position and then changing the position. There was a video on the network of an Al Qaeda sniper killing American soldiers by shooting from the depths of the room from our SVD and then changing position, and how do you think the Americans understood from which building they were shooting?

    Why shoot a vest in armor ?? From 300 m, a sniper will fall into the bridge of the nose.

    Well minus sign ??)) explain what I said wrong? are you really out of the Kalashnikov’s assault rifle that will sing to your head Over 300 meters ?? Wimps)) a good yakut beats squirrels in the eye from such a distance. Couch))

    Being a Jew, not a Yakut, from 300 meters from Kalashnikov I’m definitely not getting into my head laughing Of the M-16, too, it is unlikely, and I saw the squirrel only in the zoo

    So laugh further, since the hands are crooked!

    Where are the pictures of the rifle?
    And I still do not understand why to make an analogue of my own videoconferencing? Or did the videoconferencing do not please someone?
