APU began testing the latest Ukrainian mortar MP-120

The Ukrainian armed forces began testing a new domestic mortar, the MP-120. This was announced by the Armed Forces General Staff on their Facebook page.


The new mortar goes through a test cycle at the combined-arms training ground near the village of Goncharovskoye in the Chernihiv region. In testing weapons along with the military, military specialists from the State Research Institute for Testing and Certification of Arms and Military Equipment are taking part. Based on the test results, a decision will be made on putting the mortar into service.

The new MP-120 mortar with a caliber of 120 mm, developed by Ukrainian manufacturers, should replace the Soviet counterparts, which were in service with the Ukrainian army, with a domestic product with numerous modifications

- said in a statement.

According to the Ministry of Defense, the new MP-120 mortar is designed to destroy and suppress enemy manpower and fire weapons by mounted fire, located both openly and in field-type shelters.

The properties of the mortar allow you to maintain mechanized units in battle, to repel enemy attacks day and night

- said the Ukrainian military.

About the timing of the end of the tests and the approximate adoption of the mortar is not reported.

        A historical document was found justifying the idiocy occurring in Ukraine.
        From the decree of Tsar Ivan the Terrible:
        "... and all the holy fools and the wretched to exile on the outskirts, there is a place for them to fools."

          Good time Matvey. What are we talking about? With those cockroaches (the homeworkers caught up with us) and the beginnings of medicine in the outskirts, a terrible dream will be awakened in two weeks !!! "There is no dad’s gold reserve." The whole herd will rush towards the aggressor. The distances will save us again (well, the subcutaneous golden fat) With normal medicine, all this crown is weaker than simple influenza-BUT !!!! In the absence of a high saturation of drugs and qualified doctors, it’s going to bring down a scythe. I don’t panic, but let our colleagues look rationally. Russia it will stretch itself out (even taking into account the finished degenerates), but all the frontier ones will rush to us "you’re not my Russian acupant brother to me." belay belay

        It’s such a thing for them to call long-known products by their proper names. So it is here. The Soviet 2B11 mortar "Sled" was named for the drum and issued as the "newest". I would not be surprised if they did nothing, but simply renamed the good old 2B11. So they and the AK-74 will be renamed into some sort of "Konotop".

          Fort is called this piece.
          (A mistake came out. Fort is an Israeli Tabor)
          AKMC-F assault rifle - is a modernized AK-47 Kalashnikov assault rifle. To improve the performance characteristics of the base model, all springs were replaced and the trigger was adjusted with the automatic release lever replaced, which ensured a smoother descent. Also, to improve the accuracy characteristics, a number of parts are installed, namely: a gas tube with a Picatinny rail for mounting an optical or collimator sight, an anatomical pistol grip, and a forearm with a front grip or bipod. In addition, instead of a muzzle nut, a muzzle compensator is installed to reduce the withdrawal of the barrel when firing in bursts. The folding butt of the original design is installed on this model.
          Apparently the one with the butt on two rivets.

    The double-loading fuse was developed during the Great Patriotic War by the Leningrad engineer Afanasyev for a mortar of the 1938 model. Explosions of Hammers from double loading are three options: sabotage at the factory, defective manufacturing or indifference to Hammer's calculations.

        Well, to yours, as the most adequate comment I can add: there were 12 explosions of 120 mm mortars in total. The media ALL ranked them as "hammers". Although 4 of them were still Soviet 120 mm. I don’t remember exactly, but the investigations showed that I didn’t remember the number of cases of premature firing of the fuse, the number of attempts to double-load, and the third option.
        This I mean that with expired ammunition and crooked hands, at least Soviet, at least German, at least American ...

          The matter is not in expired ammunition, and not in crooked hands. The thing is mortar barrels, which have long been time for scrap.
          I know of at least three cases of the rupture of 120 mm M-120 mortars. Under Bamut in 1999, under Pionersky in 2000 and near Bamut at VVshnikov in 2006-2007 In the second case, it’s definitely not double. The first shot after cleaning.

          With high probability, just old trunks.

      There is an automatic 82-mm mortar. Cornflower. It fires with clips of 4 mines. Try to invent the automatic 120 mm mortar on the same principle. Then there will definitely not be double loading.

    It always seemed that a classic mortar is a weapon useless in modern warfare. Too short range, no protection, easy to detect and easy to suppress. What can come in handy is to shell defenseless settlements.
    Why is there something else to develop there? Or is it for the sake of what window dressing to do, here, like, we are developing it. They can’t do anything more serious if.
