Prospective weapon models of the XXI century: cleaning, sight and microelectronics (part 3)

Is a situation of so-called “undercharging” possible when a soldier tries to charge a cartridge without opening the barrels? Theoretically, yes, but only theoretically. And then only on this "test sample". The fact is that on a real rifle it is quite possible to install some simple mechanical fuse that simply will not allow the cartridge to be inserted into the receiver if the barrels of the barrels are not open. But even on this sample, where there is no such a fuse, such “undercharging”, the situation when cartridges do not enter the trunks to the very end does not pose a danger. The fact is that the electronic control microchip will immediately determine that the charges are not in place, and “raise the alarm”, turn on the buzzer or give some noticeable signal. And the soldier, seeing his mistake, will be able to reload the rifle. That is, open the shutter, insert the second cartridge into the receiver and “push” the first cartridge with the second batch of charges until the very end.


Of course, creating layouts weapons at home, one might say, “on the knee”, it is simply impossible to avoid certain ... well, let's say this ... “nedodomok”. For example, in this photo you can see that a protruding plate with a disk is installed in front of the electronic unit. The same disc is also on the “mobile phone” cover. And if you look at the block itself, then ... it is not on it. So he should be on the opposite side ... but he is not there. Why? Yes, because both of these disks are magnets, and they are needed to fix the screen in the open state! Well, it is impossible to make a strong attachment from ordinary 2-3 mm of polystyrene, and, alas, the purchased hinges from the Leonardo shop turned out to be too ... "flimsy". Therefore, it was necessary to put at least one side of the "magnetic mount." On a real rifle of this level, naturally, will not be!


The trunks are designed to place three cartridges one by one, so that in this case nothing dangerous will happen.

Another advantage of this design is that the rifle will not need to be cleaned. That is, it will have to be cleaned, of course, but not in the way it is now. Since the powder soot is formed in it only in the trunks and on the closures, then they can be cleaned without the aid of a cleaning rod, and simply pour inwards some suitable cleaning agent. They poured, “poured” a little and leaked - that’s the whole cleaning! And all the mechanical parts of the mechanism of the rifle do not have to be cleaned. They are securely covered from dust. You will not need them and often lubricate. That is, sometime, of course, this will have to be done, but no more than twice a year - before the summer and before the winter, when the summer lubricant needs to be changed for the winter one and vice versa. That is, the easiest thing to do is to rifle ... periodically rinse, and you will no longer need to tinker with the ramrod, brushes and rubs.


There she is, a loop for a brass box, visible between the lid and the base. But, alas, it turned out that these “crafts” do not differ in rigidity and strength. And to fasten something more durable, iron on thin polystyrene is at least unwise ... By the way, there is nothing only in this model: plastic pipes, and a handle from a children's gun (oh, I would be like this in my childhood !!!), and polystyrene knitting needles (swabs) bent over the candle. On the other hand, many details are very modernly made on a CNC machine!

As for problems with electronics or aiming systems - the same optical sight or video camera, then, since all its details are modular, they are easily replaced even in field conditions. And what exactly should be replaced, again, will prompt the screen control rifle.

Speaking of sights. There are no mechanical devices on this sample. But they are not on the English rifle SA-80. Rather, they are, but only mounted not on the body, but on the ... SUSAT telescopic sight. Note that it was SA-80 that became the first army rifle on which a permanent sniper scope was mounted. The abbreviation SUSAT stands for Sight Unit (“viewing unit”), Small Arms (“small caliber weapon”), Trilux (“illuminated“ trilux ”) - that is,“ sighting device for small-caliber weapons with illuminated “trilux”. This device has a fourfold magnification and is equipped with a rubber eyecup. Aiming, the shooter sees in the eyepiece the aiming mark in the form of a vertical arrow. It is black in the afternoon, but glows in conditions when the illumination is insufficient. Illumination provides a special built-in source with radioactive luminescence - the lamp "trilux".


Screen monitor electronic control unit in a combat position.

Thanks to this aim, it is possible to learn to shoot aptly much faster than on any other. Adjusting the sight is very simple. It is adjustable horizontally and vertically, in addition, it provides for the adjustment of the backlight level and ... everything! Well, and if in the battle it fails for some reason, then the simplest open sight is located on top of it in this case.

On this rifle, it can also be put on, say, on top of the same optical sight. However, the presence of a rifle control screen on a rifle is essentially an analogue of any modern camera, which allows the shooter to not even look at the optical sight on it. Even today, not every photographer is looking at the camera's viewfinder, preferring to observe the “picture” taken by him on her screen.


On the screen of the rifle, you see not one arrow, like the British, but three, but this is not important at all. With them, if the rifle is adjusted correctly, the bullet will hit exactly where the arrow points. In this case, it will be a point between the three arrows, that's all. The percentages of battery capacity are indicated in the upper right corner, and the ammunition load in the lower one. At the top left is a label - the letters "GR" - "grenade launcher". It is necessary to touch it, and the microchip will transfer the screen to firing from a grenade launcher and, accordingly, change the sight on it. Since the grenade fuse is programmable, the blast options will also appear on the screen. This is a “strike” and air blasting at a certain distance - 50, 100, 150, 200 m, etc. If the grenade is shrapnel, then the inscription “shrapnel” will appear on the screen and again the numbers of its explosion in the air - 25, 50, 75, 100, 125 m, etc. The letter "Z" means "Volley", that is, a simultaneous shot at once from all trunks. Such a shot can be used when firing at a group target at a great distance.


Here it is - a picture that the shooter from the ЭВШ-18 sees on the monitor of the electronic control unit of his rifle. Moreover, judging by the position of the sight marks, the bullet will hit this subject in a helmet right in the nose!

The aiming mark itself does not move across the screen, but the microchip, depending on the object on which the sight is focused, “chooses” from the barrels for a shot the one that is aimed at it most accurately. There is another option: all trunks are fixed in the body so that they look at one point at a distance, say, in 600 or 1000 m.

Since there is a video camera on the sight, the image from it and the sight is transmitted to the display of the unit commander. That is, he sees in real time what each of his fighters sees, who sees which of them chooses targets and, accordingly, sees which one of them is on the common map. Having at his disposal also a drone hovering over the battlefield, he can easily control everything that happens on him. To move a soldier like pawns, depending on the most optimal angles of the target and reciprocal fire assistance from the enemy forces. Even the corrections to the wind in the sights of the arrows, receiving data from his portable meteorological station, he can enter automatically and even without notifying them. However, a special computer, which constantly receives data from a weather station on air pressure, temperature, wind direction and force, can carry out a similar operation. Knowing the location of each of the unit’s fighters, he will be able to automatically give them optimal aiming data, so they will only have to point the cross at the target and pull the trigger. And to think about what kind of wind is blowing there and how much advance the soldier should take with such a rifle is not needed at all!

It is very convenient to have similar external accompaniment of information in cases when the soldiers are inside the armored vehicles. Now the loopholes on infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers are usually muffled and the infantry inside is not able to conduct a firefight. A pity, because it enhances the impact of the machine on the enemy. But having an external video camera (and not even one) and an onboard processor, it will be possible to give each fighter on the BMP its own “picture” of the desired target, and that one, even without looking at its own sight (and this makes it possible to reduce the dimensions of the loophole for the rifle barrel!) , to conduct a successful fire from the car.

There is no need to have an IR sight on each rifle. A few night-time devices on the BMP or BTR, connected to the on-board computer, are enough to transfer the “picture” to the control units of the soldiers inside them and thus ensure that they can fire with an accuracy unattainable by means of IR detection. These are the advantages that the electronic control of such a rifle can give.


The spare electronic unit can be stored in a completely sealed metal package.

True, there remains the problem of the impact of EMP - the electromagnetic pulse of a nuclear explosion. The consequences of its impact can indeed be very serious. For example, it seems that it is known that an explosion at an altitude of 300 km of just one ammunition with a capacity of 10 Mt will disrupt the operation of electronic equipment in an area equal to approximately the entire territory of the United States, and the time for its restoration will exceed all the permissible periods for the adoption of any response measures. Therefore, wherever there is electronics, and not electrovacuum devices - these are not too susceptible to EMP (well, who would have thought ?!), and semiconductor, they try to provide it with appropriate protection. However, there are much more electronics on ships, but they are being built, a lot of it on tanks and on other military equipment, which no one refuses. So the electronics may well be on the rifle. Well, as far as protection against EMP is concerned, the best means of protection against it would be ... a spare electronic unit placed in a package of fine copper wire sewn into a leather case. By the way, the same mesh will need to be inserted into the plastic of the rifle body in the area of ​​the microwave emitter inside the barrel block connected to the control unit on the body. After all, each warhead is set on fire in the table by a signal received from the electronic control system through a touch trigger. For this, “devices” are needed that can work without batteries solely due to the energy transmitted to them through radiation.

      In addition, looking at the screen, the fighter will "not see" what is happening around him point-blank, this is also from the experience of using a video camera, you constantly need to adjust the position of the camera stupidly looking only at the screen. The screen sight is appropriate then, say, if you need to shoot around the corner, as this is implemented on Israeli Corner Shot rifles

    Many thanks to the author for such a frank description of his product. In my opinion, the real prospect of such a device is in Remotely Controlled Security and Defense Systems of "important" objects. Guaranteed control over the state of the weapon, permissible autonomy from regular maintenance, the transition from combat to pre-combat readiness at the operator's signal, respectively, as a result - operational safety. All this in a complex will provide high reliability and autonomy for stationary systems or systems deployed to ensure the safety of field areas. That is, if this weapon is used as an electronic sentry (guard), then almost all the conditions for the ASBU are met (with some modifications). There are serious questions about the accuracy and range of such weapons, but I think they can be solved. Thanks again for the article!

    Carefully observing the description of the technical amateur performance of the author, I lost sight of one point and only the masterpiece phrase "Since powder soot forms in it only in the barrels and on the gates, it will be possible to clean them without the help of a ramrod, but simply pouring in some suitable cleaning agent. They poured it in, "pouted" a little and poured it out - that's all the cleaning! " (we will return to it) I came up with a question - are the trunks in this arma posterum rifled or smooth? If the barrel is rifled, how is the author going to charge it from the barrel? History shows that loading a rifle from a muzzle is not an easy question. And then as many as 50 trunks. Yes, and the cartridge will have to design a new one. Classic, with a metal sleeve, obviously will not work here.
    If the barrel is smooth, then how will the issue of obturation and stabilization of a bullet be addressed in flight? Question.
    And now about the trunks and their cleaning. Vyacheslav Olegovich, several centuries of operation of firearms by mankind and kilometers of barrels cleaned with their own hands show that without a ramrod in this process nowhere. And if the barrel is rifled, then without a brush. And if you have to shoot for a long time, and there is no way to clean the weapon (anything can happen in war), then the difficulties grow exponentially. After all, the products of the shot, due to the high temperature and pressure, do not just form carbon deposits on the surface of the barrel, they diffuse into it. So it is very difficult to remove carbon deposits from the barrel even with the use of special modern "weapon cosmetics", of which a lot has been developed.
    So you will have to develop either a composition of a propellant (gunpowder) and an initiating (capsule) substance that does not react with the trunks, or material for the trunks on which this carbon deposit does not form, or a cleaning fluid that dissolves this carbon deposit without dissolving and the trunk at the same time.
    And one moment. When you described the history of firearms in Japan, you mentioned that the Japanese could not make a plug for the breech of the barrel on the thread and simply riveted it. In Europe, too, they did it at first. But stuck in a problem - a dead trunk can not be cleaned. And they made a plug on the thread - for cleaning. So this point should also be foreseen.
    As you can see, in addition to the compromising evidence, the theory of mechanisms and machines, you need to pull up both inorganic chemistry and organic chemistry, and the technology of structural materials and a host of questions.
    And a suggestion. Take someone with you, go out at night to a street where there is no lighting (preferably in the field) and ask someone to turn on your mobile phone and bring it to your face. Then, in steps, measure the distance at which this illuminated face will be visible, especially in the optical sight. In the next part you will tell.
    We look forward to continuing.

        In the previous part, I believed that if we proceed from the 5,45x39 cartridge and take the AK-74 barrel as the basis, then the barrel block will weigh about 18 kg.

    I wrote in co-orientations to the second part, I can not resist here. To make a block of many trunks so that accuracy is acceptable is very difficult. Especially if you shoot a lot and heat the barrel block. Monotonous bullets from monotonous cartridges, tunneling along one barrel, and even that does not give perfect accuracy, and here 25 trunks.

    The sighting mark itself does not move around the screen, but the microchip, depending on which object the sight is focused on, “selects” the one that is aimed at it most precisely from the barrels for the shot.

    For each range - its own trunk? !!
    Even if one barrel is left at the range of a direct shot, then three more pieces are needed to shoot up to a range of at least 600m. That is, the "inventor" offers to carry a block of 4 barrels only in order not to move the aiming mark across the screen, as on all normal sights. fool
    There is another option: all the trunks are fixed in the body so that they look at one point at a distance, say, in 600 or 1000 m.

    "Inventor"! If the barrels look at one point at one of the ranges, then they look at one point at all ranges, since THEY ARE PARALLEL. Such obvious things must be understood before taking on the invention of weapons!
    And then: how then to take the desired aiming angle with a fixed sighting mark ?! belay
    judging by the position of the marks of the sight, the bullet will hit this subject in a helmet right in the nose!

    Judging by this opus, the "inventor" has no idea that the bullet is not flying along the line of sight. No.

        In fact, all multi-barreled shotguns have no parallel barrels ... they converge along the aiming point horizontally and vertically. Convergence angles are just too lazy to look now. And in such a weapon, it seems to me, there is no need to mix. Well, it gets a couple of centimeters to the side ... it's still a "queue". Not a sniper, after all.

    Thanks to the author for the article. I’ll add a little more. On top of the optical sight, if necessary, mechanical sights can’t be installed - the aim line is too short, unless you are going to use it as a melee weapon, as an additional option is possible for the target. Regarding sights and microprocessors, then it’s much simpler, everything has been in the hardware for a long time, and with the built-in weather station, the guys from Texas have long established the production of such devices, but of course the price tag is horse-drawn. I think it’s not worth so much to stick on the device itself, half of what you described can be easily scattered around the fighter’s carcass, and most likely it will be even more useful. Regarding cleaning the trunks, the comrade wrote comments above, I can only agree with him. As long as they can’t get away from cleaning I’ll not describe the processes acting on the barrel when fired, it’s long and tedious. hi

        A bit wrong hi in this sample, the front sight is mounted on a gas chamber, and the removable diopter rear sight was stored in the pistol grip and mounted on the quick-release grip for carrying weapons. therefore, not on top, but instead of an optical sight. yes

    Since there is a video camera on the sight, the image from it and the sight is transmitted to the display of the unit commander. That is, he real-time sees what each of his fighters sees

    The sight itself is not enough, the "inventor" also stuck a video camera. Indeed, why waste time on trifles ... The squad leader is not satisfied with 9 pictures from the sights of his subordinates, he is offered 9 more pictures from their cameras. Then give him 18 more eyes and the left (or right, which one is responsible for vision?) Hemispheres of the brain. yes

    Move soldiers like pawns

    And the great Suvorov only bequeathed to the subordinate a task, and how to fulfill it for the subordinate IS VISIBLE. And General Panfilov in 1941 near Moscow taught: "Management is an understanding of the problem." And not constantly poking a subordinate where to run over and what goal to choose!

    Even wind corrections in the sights of shooters, receiving data from his portable weather station, he can enter automatically and without even informing them of this.

    And then the subordinate saw the enemy not directly, but on the right. He turned the weapon to the right and ... didn’t get anywhere. 90 degree wind correction is not correct. fool

    Knowing the location of each of the unit’s fighters,

    And how does he, the sick one, know that? Does the walkie-talkie on each fighter constantly inform his GLONASS / JPC coordinates? But then the enemy knows the location of all our fighters: he takes direction from their stations.

    During the war they learned not to smoke at night in the open, because the fire of a cigarette being lit is visible at night for several kilometers. Who did not understand - that the enemy sniper taught.

    Illumination of a soldier’s face with a crosshair screen is just a gift to an enemy sniper.

      You either rarely go to the site or have not read many of my articles about weapons. My first weapon in 7 years was the American hard drive М1895, from which my grandfather taught me how to shoot, and then nothing happened. Now a very convenient single-barrel 16 caliber IZH-18. And I didn’t even dream of such a shot. Well, how much can you shoot with 1960 year, scorching often enough? Now I don’t go hunting anymore, but at the cottage I shoot regularly.

I sympathize with the author, I have been making an electro-mechanical rifle for three years, I have listened to a lot of different things, and what is behind my back is a separate topic in general :)! Hold on, life will put everything in place!

              Yes, I know, since 1980 I went through a lot and heard a lot. True, at one of the scientific conferences the idea was approved ... and at another ... another. And they gave money. But you understand that specialists from my university are ... "bad". The only good ones are here, that's understandable. The scientific and technical journal "there" has already offered an article on the prospects of the XX weapon! publish "there". But I don't need it now. And again everyone here knows that "there" everyone is stupid. Only here everything is "through", everything is better than everyone else, and here at VO there are experts from God. Therefore, I just do my job and do not pay attention to anything. Which is what I advise you. In the most extreme case - a son is born to a granddaughter - I will give him a rifle, he will be happy. And others have nothing to give as a present, except what they bought in the store.

                Don't be so sad :(! Yes, it's difficult, but right now, when it is obvious, there is a serious lagging behind small arms from other types. When you can safely ask - "And what are you, actually, graduates of the Shooting and Cannon Faculties (arrow-grapeshot, that is, special gluing bows and casting cast iron :).) have created a revolutionary new thing over the past 70 years (since 46).? Switzerland has proved (Swiss watches) that mechanics without electricity have their own technological aisle.

    The situation is somewhat comical when prototypes are developed by those who were not related to military service.
    In the United States, weapons firms that have a staff of engineers who have not served in the army appoint a "playing coach" as the project manager. a former marine or special forces officer with the appropriate rank (captain, major, colonel) and at least 5 years of practical combat experience, i.e. not just a consultant - but a project manager.
    Because the "creative flow" of enthusiasts should be directed to those who understand the applied purpose.

      You are absolutely right, Dmitry Vladimirovich! But ... how it all began, remember ... Martin Greer, an employee of the Bed and Breakfast hotel chain, made a rifle that the Pentagon was interested in. Why, how, it doesn't matter. The question is whether the author will be able to recapture $ 500000 and make a profit. The fact itself only says that new ideas are needed. Because how soon Generation Z will join the army. And he will need everything new. Again, not with us. We will have the position of Upper Volta with missiles for a long time to come, and for a long time to come we will both catch up and respond asymmetrically, since there is no budget for "symmetric". But new ideas should be and should be expressed, and by whom, it is not very important. At the same time, 80% of people think in a standard way, this also needs to be known and remembered.

      Yes and no! Sometimes the baggage of applied knowledge does not allow one to break out of the cliché of tactics of an already battle-tested algorithm. The fact is that weapons and tactics are interrelated things, and when you have a clear tactical pattern in front of your eyes, then you naturally choose the weapon in accordance with it. Therefore, the main requirements (TK) from "Military Experts" are aimed at increasing combat effectiveness, which in turn for many is a large number of bullets. The more - the more true. From this, the conclusion is obvious - there are many different machine guns :).

    My personal opinion and vision of small arms of the future - (in simple terms) a semblance of a "shooting" ball lightning. Naturally, this will require an energy source in the form of a battery, but ... science does not stand still. In the meantime, the AK has not yet seen more reliable.

    True, there remains the problem of the impact of the EMP — the electromagnetic pulse of a nuclear explosion.
    Not necessary. The Americans at one time created 40mm grenades with piezoelectric filling, just to destroy electronics with the help of electromagnetic radiation at short distances. But then they heard that no one else had enough electronics, except for the Americans and NATO themselves. And safely scored on this matter.
    As for the camera and the touch screen, this is a dead end. Weapons are consumables. And everything that hangs on it, too. Who needs a weapon that cannot even be dropped on the tiled floor? Better make a comfortable eye cup that can be raised and lowered. And install only a camera on the weapon. Modern cameras are microscopic and almost indestructible. Connect this business with an ordinary cord, without any wireless interfaces, the main thing is that the connector be tenacious, withstand dirt and numerous emergency trips from strong jerks. Well, yes, it will be released when running through the bushes, for example. But when running through the bushes, sniper shooting is not required. As a result, there will be at least some benefit from the flexibility and smartness of the electronic aiming system. It will be possible to put it even on a pistol, even on a heavy machine gun, and quickly shoot it with a cartridge for cold shooting.

      Quite the correct sentence. But! Today, all sights, one way or another, must be rigidly connected with the axis of the barrel, that is, having unfastened these rigidly connected systems, you need to know exactly (in three coordinates, + at the same instant) the position of the barrel relative to your eye (suppose it is a reference point), then you need to install a high-precision gyroscope on the weapon .... :) (electronic works with an unacceptable delay). Tell me how to solve this problem, we will be very grateful! :).

        And here he will be connected, and much better than in the case of mechanical sights. A camera mounted on a weapon that translates information into an eyecup. The aiming will turn out as in a computer game, by the marker in the center of the screen. Aiming ... From a pistol, shoot yourself at least from behind, and aiming. Reaction time and review - as in computer games, i.e. any better than using mechanical sights. As for me, this is much cheaper and more effective than the option that SW offers. Shpakovsky. The camera can be attached anywhere; they are now lightweight, compact and durable. At least for the gun, at least for the heavy machine gun easel. But fixing all the electronics is completely expensive and difficult. Electronics are expensive, dimensional, fragile, demanding on food and are constantly becoming obsolete.

    Electronics are vulnerable, so you should always have an "indestructible" mechanical sight. For example, like this:
    "A mechanical wedge-shaped sight is offered as a permanent, reliable sight. Instead of the standard sighting strip, two horizontally located, points inwardly, wedges are used. The gap between the points forms an" imaginary "dioptic hole. that the target in such a sight is seen not only in the upper, but also in the lower half-plane.In addition, its accuracy is higher than that of the bar, since it contains elements of a dioptric sight.
    In close combat, there is often no time to raise the weapon to eye level and shoot from the hands, "from the hip." Therefore, electronic monitors are placed on the helmet, and the camera on the weapon. Shooting with an emphasis on the thigh is more stable than on the shoulder, since the stop point is lower. "

    Guys, what is the article about, that we will clean the weapons with Pemolux conditionally speaking. Poured, blabbed and leaked - that's all. Dream of a soldier! good Change the lubricant 2 times a year, in words everything is fine, will we send for export? Somewhere in Africa, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and so on, whoever there will be something to rinse, manually clean 25 barrels, and the delivery of cartridges there is disposable. You can’t sell it anywhere, we’ll do it for ourselves, okay. Sight through a video camera only in a movie is so simple. We need to ask videographers how easy it is to shoot diverse surveys, is a video camera also an optical device, what is a ZOOM? The article says so if everything is removed on a smartphone, see amateur shots - this is what the commander sees. In video games, sitting behind the screen, driving with the mouse is easy, I clicked - the enemy was killed. Maybe then shoot - shot, shrapnel, fragmentation grenades, why then bullets. Generation Z, once said the Pepsi generation, now they are bosses. Shooting as it is written in the article is shooting from a drone, then can it be better to attach a concept to a drone and into battle? Fighting without leaving the barracks? Or maybe they will send you a subpoena with codes, go to the Internet on the right site, register, get orders on SOAP and that’s it. Then you receive orders with home delivery - that's another story. hi
