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        A historical document was found justifying the idiocy occurring in Ukraine.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."

        Это у них такая фишечка- называть давно известные изделия своими именами. Так и здесь. Советский миномет 2Б11 "Сани" назвали по друму и выдали за "новейший". Я не удивлюсь, если они ничего не сделали, а просто переименовали старый добрый 2Б11. Этак они и АК-74 переименуют в какой нибудь "Конотоп".

          (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.

        Ну, на ваш, как на самый адекватный коммент могу добавить: всего было 12 взрывов 120 мм минометов. СМИ ВСЕ их причислили к "молотам". Хотя 4 из них были ещё советские 120 мм. Точно не помню, но расследования показали, что сколько то случаев преждевременного срабатывания взрывателя, сколько то попыток двойного заряжания и третий вариант уже не помню.

          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.
