DXL-5: in Russia they create a sniper rifle with a range of up to 7 km

The most long-range rifle in the world may soon be created by Russian gunsmiths. Its preliminary name is DXL-5.


About this news agency RIA News said Vladislav Lobaev, CEO of Lobaev Arms, which is developing a new weapons.

Today, the world's largest firing range provides the "Twilight" rifle, created by the same company. She is able to confidently hit targets at a distance of 2,5 kilometers, and her record range is 4200 meters.

Vladislav Lobaev claims that so far there are no sniper rifles in the world with a target range of 6-7 kilometers.

The main secret of the new weapon will be the cartridge developed for him, in which unusual innovative technologies will be applied. While not disclosed information on the caliber and other characteristics of the ammunition. We only know about its large cartridge size and high initial bullet speed. It is thanks to this special ammunition that the rifle will be able to hit targets at such a great distance.

The developers plan to complete the creation of the DXL-5 by the beginning of next year.

An important question for discussion is how effective such a weapon is for moving targets, because while a bullet travels a distance of 6-7 km, the target can shift significantly depending on speed. Therefore, the sniper will have to take into account many additional nuances, not to mention the usual nuances.

      It’s not a cartridge there anymore, but some kind of rocket projectile. And as for moving targets, it’s now sights with a ballistic calculator.

        It seems that the main chip will be in the bullet, which will be equipped as a smart warhead with all the bells and whistles on the principle of "shot and forgot." A specific product will always find its "buyer".

          Well, purely in theory, the higher the speed and range, the longer the projectile should be elongated. It will be more like a needle than a bullet.
          And yes, most likely the bullet is controllable. No matter how accurate the computing complex is, it does not calculate air inhomogeneities. And from the "small" air hole at the beginning of the path to the finish, the bullet will deviate by half a meter, or more.

              I think that this is just about shooting up to 5km at stationary targets. 7 km is more likely the maximum range of a bullet, about accuracy and slaughter at such distances, things will not go there anymore, just journalists pulled it by the ears.

        At such a distance, he will not get anywhere. Due to the refraction of the beam in the vertical heat fluxes of the atmosphere, it will a priori aim past. The Americans know this and are working on a bullet capable of homing at the final stage of the flight. Yes, and for such a distance, it will no longer be a sight, but a telescope. This comrade-designer made me laugh.

        Not only. Lobaev has a tacit competition with the Americans, who were leaders in this type of shooting.
        This story began a few years ago when Russian shooter and manufacturer of high-precision long-range rifles Vlad Lobaev saw a video on YouTube where peppy old people from Texas from a rifle hit a target at a distance of 3600 yards (3292 m). Vlad decided to accept the challenge and compete with the Americans.

        Most likely, this rifle will also be Dusk, only heavily pumped. The bullet is conical.

          1. Altitude 1,75 m (average person’s height) = Distance to the horizon 4,7 km
          2. scattering loss coefficient for different rain intensities:

          drizzling rain (0,6 mm / h) - ar = 0,15 km ^ -1;
          average rain (1-2 mm / hour) - ar = 0,3-0,4 km ^ -1;
          heavy rain (3-6 mm / hour) - ar = 0,5-0,8 km ^ -1.
          In extreme cases, the rain intensity can reach 25-30 mm / hour, which creates a loss coefficient of ar 2,5 km ^ -1. The scattering loss coefficients for snow precipitation are close to the rain loss coefficients.
          Thus, the atmospheric loss coefficient in the most adverse situations is determined mainly by the dispersion of haze and fog on aerosols. During heavy rain or snow, the possibilities of using a laser rangefinder are very limited, and assessments in these terms are pursuing a cognitive purpose rather than a practical one. In the case of high transparency of the atmosphere, the role of absorption increases, especially when operating at a wavelength of 10,6 μm, where the effect of scattering is less significant than at shorter waves.

          Testing experience showed that a dark target against a light background (against a background of white snow), located at a distance of several kilometers, is visible as a barely visible spot that does not have clear contours, in conditions of haze or fog ...

          Gerlich's bullet
          Already at speeds of 1450-1470 m / s, a Gerlich rifle bullet weighing 6,5 g, an effective diameter of only 6,35 mm, with a lead core at a distance of 50 m, broke through (and not punched) in a steel armor sheet 12 mm thick with a diameter 15 mm, and in thick armor made a funnel of 15 mm in depth and 25 mm in diameter. The usual 7,92 mm Mauser combat rifle bullet left only a small 2-3 mm recess on such armor.

            All of these calculations about the possible range of the shot at the obstacle standing on the surface of the "earth" are certainly interesting, but only from a theoretical point of view. For they are completely broken about the realities of life. All record shots, and we are talking about them, are fired at a target located at a decent elevation, sometimes up to tens of meters. Or there is a hollow between the shooter and the target. In the video laid out a little higher at 3.46, it is clearly visible that the surface there is very far from horizontal. But with visibility - that's right, this is a real problem, but it is practically solved by choosing the right place and weather condition with the best parameters. Well, the question is - to whom and for what it is needed, all the more so for expensive? Well, you are not surprised by cars with jet engines accelerating to supersonic speeds. They are definitely not being collected in order to drive to the bakery. Everything is trite and simple at the same time, and is explained with just one word - Record.

      No specialization, a rifle is created for a single shot at these same 6-7 km. The cartridge is much more interesting, because all that the Lobayevites fired before was the American "cheat". And here they are "developing a cartridge." Well, let's see.

        Actually not quite right. Yes, these are all the same “readers” but made according to their specifications for a specific barrel. And yes, the specialization of the whole complex is one - a record shot. At the expense of a cartridge of its own design, I am also interested in the same. But the wording, especially in the translation of a journalist, is too vague. There may be a caliber of its own, which will certainly be because bullets are made for a specific barrel and the concept of caliber is not particularly significant there in practice, there may be its own sleeve, there may be its own bullet. Rather, even all of this is in place. For individual changes will be anyway. The question is how significant they will be, and whether there will be something fundamentally different from previous cartridges in them.

        For modern "anti-tank" anti-material rifles, kinetic energy is important when in contact with the target, but here, excuse me, that in the "Dusk" for 4 km, which is most likely in the DXL-5 for 6-7 km, the bullet flies along a parabola, like art . a projectile, it loses most of its energy already at half the distance and hits the target at the end, the question is, what will it then break through? The maximum that it will be possible to break through is the conditional BTR-70/80, and even with great luck, but based on the fact that this is a niche weapon that requires high-quality guidance devices and a ballistic computer, it’s already possible to correct it at a distance of 6-7 km a small UAV will be needed, because a simple sight and binoculars are simply not enough, since the range is “beyond the horizon” and there are very few open spaces, plus special “innovative” cartridges, plus the rifle itself is not cheap.
        For that kind of money, it will be possible to buy an 82-mm mortar with a full ammunition and a quadrocopter or even a small UAV, which is many times more effective against armored vehicles than any rifles.

            Here I agree, the standard 82 mm work for 4 km, but for 2C12 with BC, you need a more or less specialized transport such as MT-LB, GAZ-66, while the 82 mm can still be tried to move the forces of calculation, or transport on an army SUV, which is much easier.

        From seven kilometers? At such a range, something armored can no longer be flashed; you need something unprotected, large, motionless and fragile enough to deteriorate with one or two shots. A rifle for shooting fuel trucks in the parking lot? )))

        It seems to me, obviously, that such shooting has no special practical meaning. Just a demonstrator of advertising opportunities.

          And if in place of seven, well, let's say three? Do you know a lot of rifles that confidently hit targets with sufficient kinetics at such a distance? There is practical sense in this - development and testing of new technologies on a prototype. Moreover, there is a small private team, and not the whole institute of Moscow Region. Well, do not forget that this is one way or another, but still an advertisement for Russian weapons.

            I don’t say anything about three, although in a real combat situation no one even shot at three kilometers. And at shorter ranges (2500-2700 m), successful shots were largely due to luck.

            You read my comment inattentively. There is no sense in shooting at 7 km per se. But about the development of weapons that can crank up such a trick - yes, of course, there are. This is both technical research and marketing effect. My phrase about promotional opportunities demonstrator - She is without any negative connotation.

      Do you need a nuclear warhead for shooting at 4210 meters?
      SVLK-14 "Twilight"
      The work of weapons art by the hand of the creator of high-precision long-range rifles Vlad Lobaev does not just hit two kilometers on target: “Dusk” holds a world record for firing range - 4210 meters. Not only the fantastic range of targeted shooting distinguishes the Lobaev rifle. Accuracy of shooting is less than 0.2 MOA groups of 5 shots, and this is with the powerful 408 Cheytac cartridge (nominal caliber 10 mm). By the way, the closest competitor of "Dusk" to the American CheyTac M200 with the same cartridge declared accuracy of 1 MOA (considered a very good result of accuracy), which makes a huge difference at such distances.

      The body of the SVLK-14 receiver is made of aviation aluminum with a threaded insert made of highly alloyed corrosion-resistant steel, and the KING V3.0 gate group is made of it. By the way, the shutter itself is single-shot - in "Twilight" everything is done to ensure maximum rigidity. The total length of the weapon is 1570 mm, of which 900 mm fall on the Lobaev Hummer Barrels match barrel.

A piece of work, compared to a commercially available rifle, aren't you funny yourself? .Lobaev, like an old shooter of bench rest, did what he had been doing all his life. Rifles gathering groups at 4-0.2 moa in bench rest are considered normal. There are cases when heaps are collected at BR competitions and 0.25-0.1 moa .

      bullet needed with a nuclear warhead
      So, they were created ...
      It turns out that it was in our country back in the days of the USSR, when we achieved military parity (or even advantages) with the United States, that atomic bullets were created. And not only created, but also tested! It was about ammunition caliber 14,3 mm and 12,7 mm for heavy machine guns. However, it was possible to create a bullet of 7,62 mm caliber, but not only for a Kalashnikov assault rifle, but for his easel machine gun. This cartridge also became the smallest nuclear weapon in the world.
      When the transuranic element California was discovered - more precisely, its isotope with an atomic weight of 252, it turned out that it had a critical mass of only 1,8 grams!

      The ammunition itself is simple to incredibility: a tiny part weighing 5-6 grams is made from California, in shape resembling a dumbbell from two hemispheres on a thin leg. A tiny explosive charge inside a bullet crushes it into a neat ball, which has a diameter of 7.62 mm for a 8-mm bullet, which causes a supercritical state and ... everything - a nuclear explosion is ensured! To detonate the charge, a contact fuse was used, which was placed inside the bullet - that's the whole "bomb for the gun"! As a result, the bullet, however, turned out to be much heavier than usual, therefore, in order to maintain the usual ballistic characteristics, a charge of gunpowder of increased power had to be placed in the sleeve.

      However, the main problem that ultimately decided the fate of this unique munition is the heat generation caused by the continuous decay of California.
      Therefore, the storage of such bullets required a special refrigerator, which had the appearance of a copper plate about 15 cm thick with nests of 30 rounds. Between them there were channels through which coolant circulated under pressure - liquid ammonia, which provided the bullets with a temperature of about -15 °. This installation consumed about 200 watts of power supply, and weighed approximately 110 kg, so that it could only be transported in a specially equipped jeep.

Caliber from 7,62 to 14,3 mm, BB - California 252, charge mass about 6 g, power from 100 to 700 kg of TNT. Store in the freezer at -15 degrees, the time for a shot along with preparation for 30 minutes, then again in the freezer. Shelf life of a "nuclear bullet" is about 5 years. Maybe Lobaev makes a rifle under the "order of Comrade X"? - which has something to charge the DXL-5 ...

    An important question for discussion is how effective such a weapon is for moving targets, because while a bullet travels a distance of 6-7 km, the target can shift significantly depending on speed. Therefore, the sniper will have to take into account many additional nuances, not to mention the usual nuances.

    Well, such rifles are obviously for top-level specialists .. (wind, sun, temperature, terrain, etc.) To learn this for years .. Here intuition and patience are the main thing .. I remember the maximum record of 2 km was to get into a small the goal .. Well then .. I hope to break the record with such a rifle! hi
    The main thing is to shoot and feel it, as its continuation of the body and eye ... Then it works, but not at all ..! hi

    In fact, the sniper’s goal is not only manpower, but also a mass of stationary objects, light equipment, communications, field depots of fuels and lubricants and ammunition, and so on. They even considered the possibility of defeating ICBMs at the start. Effectively covering the area even at 1000m is problematic, but here 7km. Yes, no matter how much the shot costs, a secretive defeat from such a distance without unmasking the position will be justified a hundred times, and in some cases this may even become the key to the whole operation. hi

    If the observer’s eyes are at a height of 1,7 m above the place where he stands (on a perfectly round globe, without natural obstacles), the horizon is approximately 4,7 km from this observer. Eyes at an altitude of 100 m (a building or a tower, some kind of thing), the horizon at a distance of about 36 km. If we are talking about a rifle, then shooting from a hand, or from a lying position with a double or double and with support under the butt, the horizon will be closer than 4 km. Then, the sight. Astronomical telescope? Electronic zoom? Normal, not ideal atmosphere - dust, water vapor, vertical and horizontal movement of air masses. The picture will shake as if in a fever. Large objects will be visible. But from a rifle on the walls of high-rise buildings? The mortar will be more reliable and more truly.

    Even for anti-tank missiles, the possibility of launching at such a range is not considered mandatory. It is very rarely possible to shoot directly from the ground on the ground at such a range. As a rule, folds of terrain, buildings, trees will prevent aiming. But it would be better if such an opportunity was of course, than it would not be. )

    Accuracy of shooting is less than 0.2 MOA groups of 5 shots, and this is with the powerful 408 Cheytac cartridge (nominal caliber 10 mm). By the way, the closest competitor of "Dusk" to the American CheyTac M200 with the same cartridge declared accuracy of 1 MOA (considered a very good result of accuracy), which makes a huge difference at such distances.

    The accuracy of 0.2 MOA for NWM and 1 MOA for CT are determined per 100 m. At 1000 m, it will creep well, and the reason for this will be the influence of external factors and aiming errors. At 4000 m, the influence of these factors completely eliminates the difference in accuracy between these rifles and makes the probability of hitting a target 1x1 m in size from one, from another artillery system is approximately equal. Preparing a shot, shooting and shooting before an offset hit takes time sufficient to conduct at least several dozen launches of ATGMs of the "Competition" or "Cornet" type. At the same time, the ATGM will ensure a guaranteed target defeat at the maximum during the second or third launch. Most often, the desired result will be achieved by the first launch.
    As for the record firing and advertising of weapons for them - this is just the sporting interest of a group of people. This is not bad - it is good. The boundaries of opportunities should always be expanded. You just should not look for a practice of today in a purely sporting interest. Especially for champions.

    At a speed of a bullet of 2 km / s it will be very effective to shoot at 4 km
    Something like today's rifles
    Shoot at 1200 meters and 7 km is the maximum theoretically possible range
    And such a cartridge can be produced in different calibres for different tasks

    At this range, you need to have a correctable bullet in flight.

    Not necessary. The bullet will fly anyway. The question is the size of the target. laughing
    Sport of high achievements and demonstration of opportunities. No practical value. Minute (angular) at this range will be 2,03 m. laughing
    Well, the wind. Horse especially. Lottery. bully

    For the price of this rifle and cartridge and optics, you can probably buy a Cornet with a HE rocket and shoot the same way.

    I think that it will be possible to buy Cornet and not one ... laughing

    Now we are working on a rifle and a cartridge with a record range of six to seven kilometers and confident shooting three kilometers. The preliminary name of the project is DXL-5, ”he explained.
    The same weapons family includes Lobaev Arms products. DXL-4 "Sevastopol" и DXL-3 Retribution.
    The most long-range is now a rifle "Dusk"produced by the same company. It confidently hits the target at a range of two and a half kilometers. The record range for a weapon is 4,2 kilometers.
    Under DXL-5 will create a new cartridge. It has several technological innovations, thanks to which it will be possible to fire at a specified distance.
    Shaw for a cartridge, we will shake, we will see ... In the available articles, next to the name of Lobaev, a "hypersonic cartridge" is mentioned. The speed of a bullet of such a cartridge should reach 2000 m / s ... whereas in the previous "rifles" -1200 m / s ... They are going to achieve the required performance characteristics after replacing the gunpowder with a "special throwing substance"! The "ability" of management ... homing is not mentioned ...

      At the cut of the barrel, then the bullet will slow down quite quickly.

    At the exhibition, I met the Lobaev brothers, very adequate and non-prominent, no show-offs, everything is simple. Very passionate about their work. Good luck to them.

    Nonsense. anyone who knows how much knows that the horizon of a person with a height of 1m80cm is 5km. She cho will bullet over the horizon? Lying, and from the trench too? Or will the bullets be controllable? They shot their record at 4210m and caught the wind at least ten times ...

    A 4210 meter bullet flies 19 seconds, I am silent about the wind at different heights and ranges of the trajectory. To what ? Be noted in the Guinness Book of Records? Maybe it is better to saturate the Russian army with solid long-range snipers and high-quality target cartridges? And also sights including night ones? watch video from 25 minutes and 50 seconds

    From mountain to mountain, you can see for 20 km. Is there any claim that they are going to hit motorcyclists? On a motionless target, I think. If there is a biathlon, where accuracy is also not the last thing, then what kind of competition cannot come from this?
    And the last thing is to arm a soldier, albeit a special one, not a private sage. Let the defense ministers think so. Everyone let him do his own thing. Then, it may well be that the prestige will be in place, and the soldier is armed not with the only ones, but with rather widespread pieces of iron.

    If you work at maximum range, then it’s just right for the photographer to shout “I take off my attention”. That the goal would stand still at attention. Otherwise, while the bullet flies, he may come up with the idea to lie down or go around the corner. what
