A video of putting out an oil fire using the MT-12 Rapira gun appeared on the Web

A video appeared on the Web of using the MT-12 Rapira anti-tank gun when extinguishing a burning oil well in the Irkutsk Region. The corresponding video was posted by the Ministry of Defense on its YouTube channel.


As explained, the calculation of the artillery guns and the gun itself were transferred to the field from the Samara region. By the time the gunners appeared, the fire had not been able to be extinguished for a week, all standard methods were powerless. The delivered gun was installed at a minimum distance from the target, after which the calculation fired several shots almost "at point blank range", having managed to cut off the fountain reinforcement, thereby knocking down the flame. After that, the oil workers managed to seal the well and put out the fire.

Gun and calculation transferred military transport aviation from the Samara region. From the smallest possible distance of 180 meters, the artillerymen cut off the fountains from the shell with jewelry precision. The work of the gunners helped to establish blowout preventive equipment for further sealing the well and eliminating the fire

- said the press service of the Central Military District.


Representatives of the Pacific Terminal company said that a fire at the well broke out due to depressurization of the fountain valves on May 30 and all attempts to extinguish it failed.

Without the intervention of artillerymen and their anti-tank gun, nothing would have happened

- emphasized in the company.

    It has already become a daily practice - well quenching. And always the artillerymen of the Central Military District carry out this task with dignity. Before the dissolution, cadets of the Yekaterinburg Higher Attestation Commission were also involved.

      They dug a shitty gun.
      He’s jumping a lot.
      Your yard is supposed to be made lower (the trunk is almost near the ground),
      Then the beds can be dug higher. And the gun hardly jumps.
      But here they did it very quickly.
      Looks like it was hot.

      In Soviet times it was like that.

      In the late 80s and early 90s there were already fire fighting equipment samples working according to a similar principle to that described above (knocking down flames with a powerful, directed pulse). Only instead of the classic gun the “shot” was fired with high pressure water.

        Oh, these fairy tales, oh, these fairy tales!
        Turn on the logic and connect Pupkin's arithmetic with pictures.
        The size of the brick is 0,25x0,12x0,06. We calculate according to the formula the thousandth angle at which you will observe the brick, and it turns out 0-00,06. This is significantly less than one thousandth! You have thicker reticle sights! And I am silent about the dispersion ...

        - Doctors.
        - this is if at the range with a well-dug gun, and even shoot from a 12,5mm extension barrel
        - and then for 2000 - in brick - this is not real.
        Meters for 500 - and from a supplementary trunk - then yes, you can.
        - and for 2000 - and a practical shot - it will be good if you get into the "meter per meter".

They will even say about the taiga gnawed on chopsticks that they sawed it down and evacuated to China for safety reasons, so that it would not accidentally burn out.

        Me not. I'm not a gunner. But the gunner should have, at least from the second shot.
        Why? Because nothing threatened the life of the gunner, no one rushed him.
        But in a real battle with enemy tanks, when there is a real threat to life and there is an understanding - whoever shoots first is alive, he would be a gunner, from what shot would he hit the tank? Given the distance to the goal of 2 km.

          Provided that the projectile could penetrate the tank’s armor, even if it could do it from the second shot, they have a higher chance of surviving the confrontation with a single tank due to rate of fire.
          And in this case, they fired normally, the gun is usually fired when the barrel is warmed up, so the first was warming up, the second was clearly successful, and the third was a control

            "... they have higher chances to survive in the confrontation with a single tank, due to the rate of fire.
            ... "
            - there is such a thing as a calculated coefficient of fire behavior in defense.
            I don’t know how it is now, but in the 70s the calculated coefficient for the T-100 was "0.9"
            This means that if an attack of 9 tanks is expected in a tank-dangerous direction, then in order to repulse the attack, you WAS to (and this was back in the 70s!) Put 10 (ten) T-100s ...
            And for the calculation of pturs "baby" - the coefficient was 1.1
            (well, that is, at least ONE tank each calculation - on average, ess-no -
            BEFORE YOUR DESTRUCTION - theoretically - had to destroy)

      Vasya, and you're into a pipe with a diameter of 100 mm from a hundred meters from an RPG in general can you get in? Well let's say so from the box of shots? Take a walk ... Guys are generally a sniper, if with an unguided projectile from 180 meters they hit the 10-centimeter mark. By the way, there, above, Uncle Bens asked about the tank, so the tank is “slightly” in angular size larger than this target. This is the first. The second is Rapier in tanks with guided missiles. In youth I shot from a rapier on an armored personnel carrier, from 800 meters the operator put them in a circle of 15-20 centimeters in chalk

          For those under the armored train. The well had to be extinguished. to do this, it is necessary to install something like a cap over it, and after that the receiving fittings will be connected to the well pipe — the well must not be destroyed, but restored. If you hammer into the base near the ground, then the head of the borehole underground will be scattered, how to connect to it?

                  The farther into the forest, the more stupidity. In the mines they put sensors on the content of methane and other gases, and work there in relatively normal air. And if the content of explosive gases is higher than the permissible (the atmosphere becomes explosive), all work ceases. There are true figures who roughen sensors so as not to interrupt work on each run, but such tricks usually end with corpses.
                  And if you pay it out (stew meat with potatoes), then the gas that breaks out of the well is mixed with the surrounding air. In childhood, it was necessary to listen carefully to teachers at school. Or is your childhood not over yet?

                    Interestingly, alas, we have not been told this. Well, in general, yes it did not end)))

      "...
      Is there really no RPG shot?
      ... "
      "RPG" leaves a hole in the armor with a diameter of PENCIL.
      Well, or a little more.

      But the T-100 "blows" a 100-120mm pipe - CLEAN.

    The delivered gun was installed at a minimum distance from the target, after which the calculation fired several shots almost "at point blank range", having managed to cut off the fountain reinforcement, thereby knocking down the flame. After that, the oil workers managed to seal the well and put out the fire.

    What can I say - well done! Do not forget the Soviet experience. smile

    Thanks, clear. But to drag a gun for this is already too much. It would be possible to fill up with construction equipment - to press down with a stove or something else.

    ... archivists .... lol hi
    P.S. Sorry, it painfully spun on ... fingertips. hi

    Judging by the frame of the sight, all the range settings are set to "O", I just didn’t understand what type of projectile they shot ... although the flying tracer shows that this is something from an anti-tank arsenal, or armor-piercing or practical cumulative ...
    Well done gunners. Task completed

      To shoot from it with a land mine - the perversion is cleaner ... Well, in general ... bad manners. Not for that, it was created.

        Well, it was possible to use OFS in practice, it has larger ones and stabilizers that would cut these pipes like a blade

          stabilizers - they are stabilizers and are categorically not suitable for “cutting” anything.
          The thickness is about 3 mm and the diameter of the axis on which they rotate (in order to open after departure from the trunk) is the same as 3-4 mm.

            At such a distance, they would easily cut this pipe ..

    And I did not understand how they put out? A shot is being fired on the video, and the flame doesn’t even react. Did they knock anything down there? Nothing is clear on the video. Then a long pipe and again a flame.

    Experienced guys. They even brought rubble. Somehow, at the training ground, in practice, because of the shield, we gushed out of it.

      behind the shield - more or less, but when the guns are "ledge forward" - and the nearest neighbor makes a shot,
      then you understand why gunners need to open their mouths ...
