Expert: from the Russian ShAK-12 not even save the wall

58
The newest version of the heavy large-caliber SHAK-12 assault rifle is being supplied to the Russian special forces, writes in its article for The National Interest American expert Mark Episkopos.




According to him, the leadership of the FSB was thinking about creating a new, more efficient rifle weapons after the terrorist attacks in Beslan and the Moscow theater on Dubrovka.

The fact is that under the influence of adrenaline and some drugs, the criminal suppresses pain from gunshot wounds. In such cases, they, even while dying, may continue their actions for some time. Often these few “extra” seconds become fatal for hostages or other civilians if the action is carried out in the condition of the city, the author explains.

The 12,7x55 mm assault rifle (assault rifle) of the SHAK-12 melee can solve this problem: ammunition weighing 33 grams instantly neutralizes a terrorist, even if he is behind a wall or in a bulletproof vest, writes Episkopos.

The effective range of their defeat is small - about 100 meters, which minimizes possible damage to civilians.

According to the expert, a total of 3 bullets was created for the machine: armor-piercing; for quiet shooting using a silencer (subsonic); Expansive lightweight aluminum bullets that provide a powerful stopping effect.

The machine is built according to the bullpup scheme. The large weight of the ammunition is partially compensated by the shops made of plastic.

The weight of the machine is 5,2 kg (for comparison, the mass of the AK-12 is 3,3 kg).

Russian machines have long been proven on the international market as reliable and easy-to-use weapons that meet modern requirements. ShAK-12, launched in 2017, is an ideal weapon for conducting antiterrorist and other military operations in populated areas, inside buildings and structures, where the top priority is to ensure maximum safety for the civilian population,
concludes the author.

    In the official message given in the topic, which was already recently at the VO, about this wonderful unit, it has already been announced that it is intended to defeat terrorists using heavy and especially heavy armor. And then the question has already been asked, and we will ask again - is there really a case of terrorists using heavy bronikov in the Russian Federation? I personally do not remember this, first of all.

    Secondly, why such a caliber? How can you shoot through a wall during a hostage rescue operation? and if there is a hostage next to the terrorists, but you don’t see him - his life is like, damn it?

    And the third question - how would the presence of these weapons help in the storming of the school in Beslan? what?!?

    In my opinion, a redundant toy in its caliber, another project for getting money, no more, and too heavy.

    Just as a fact - it seems like the MTR in Syria did not complain about any lack of destructive power of conventional calibers against the "barmaley", although they are often on adrenaline and on drugs ... With a skillful approach, there is always enough, but here such a caliber, yes also declare that the type of lethal range is not more than 100 meters? What is it like ?

        Quote: Mih1974
        just in Beslan there was a terrible moment, when the grounded crushed scum sat down behind the bricks over the exit and shot running children and Alpha with a machine gun, that’s just there this weapon was not replaceable

        Ratnik is absolutely right, 5,45 and 7,62 are sufficient for any situation, the machine gunner in Beslan fired just from behind the hostages, there was no point in wetting him with such a half-gun, you put hostages, and if, as if it is written that 100 meters, then this is generally nonsense and not a barrel, rather it is a typo of course! You will not collect any arguments, in Beslan so many specialists died precisely because the terrorists of the creature covered themselves with children, and the specialists had to go into close fire contact. When the militants were left without hostages , then they wouldn't even remember this half-gun, because it’s stupid in your own words “it’s better to have a tank at hand” which was done in Beslan! Look how the special vehicles are going in the Caucasus now, a couple of offers to surrender, and that's it, bang bang ..the house was built! This used to be taken alive, suffered losses .. now this weapon is "half-finished" is absolutely unnecessary! Shoot through the walls, damn it, it is better to shoot through the opening, and a bumblebee out the window, and if there are hostages then the machine is fucking will not work there!

      I absolutely agree with you. Modified automatic "shotgun". The cartridge and the mechanism of the machine have been improved, to the maximum exclusion of misfires and wedges. The maximum recoil when firing was removed to increase accuracy. Maybe someone like this will come in handy. Well, about the walls is just ridiculous.
