Armenia began to create a defense industry: Kalashnikov is already in production

Two years after updating the country's leadership and deepening military-technical cooperation with Russia, the first results of a new military-industrial policy appeared in Armenia.


In 2018, the government decided to create a military-industrial complex cluster in the territory in the city of Abovyan, Kotayk marz. Within its limits, it is planned to expand the production of cartridges (150 million units a year), a car repair site (120 units a year), overhaul and modernization of armored vehicles (100 units a year) and the production of Kalashnikov assault rifles (50 thousand trunks per year).

On July 7, an AK production company was officially opened. At the first stage, assembly will be carried out here weapons from Russian components. Subsequently, it is planned to launch production of AK components. At the same time, it is necessary to reach a production capacity of 50 thousand barrels. Now 25 employees are employed here, mainly former officers. The first products are planned to be presented in late July.

A few years ago, it was considered something of a fiction genre.

- notes Sputnik Armenia publication

The creation of the “military-industrial valley” in Armenia is being carried out by the NGO Neutron, controlled by David Galstyan. It was he who in August 2018 reached an agreement with the leadership of the Kalashnikov concern on the organization of the assembly of AK.

The leadership of NPO Neutron has set itself ambitious goals. Their implementation will be a quantum leap in the development of the Armenian military-industrial complex

- writes Sputnik Armenia.

At the same time, some progress is planned in the production of products not related to the Russian defense industry. So, as indicated by the resource Armenian Military Portal, Nano Medical AM plans to produce nanoparticles with a diameter of less than 100 nm. A nanofiber will be made of them, which will be used for the production of workwear, including for law enforcement agencies. Equipment is supplied by the European company ELMARCO.

    Which, however, does not hurt to replace the AK with a clone of M-16, if the wind blows in the other direction. repeat

      Maybe yes.

      But Turkey West it’s painfully close, so it’s dangerous to abandon the Russian ....

      I wonder what "assembling weapons from Russian components" is?

      Will exercise ...ordinary AK assembly like any soldier? request recourse

          I’m thinking: eight parts of the AK, which he understands the soldiers. Will they be delivered for assembly in Armenia separately or assembled (is it easier to disassemble in order to ... assemble)?

            "will be delivered for assembly in Armenia separately or assembled" All assembled will be sent, only without one part. The release of this part will be set up on the spot. For example, they are quite capable of producing a ramrod) Close in name, and similar to Skewer laughing

      Exactly. Armenia, instead of staggering in different directions, it would be better to decide who they are with. If with Russia, then they will always help, if with the West, then they will nafig Armenia, in their political games, and will not choke. The events of a century ago are not enough for them. But the Armenians are the most "smart", both yours and ours, but this does not happen.

        In Armenia, they should understand that without Russia they will not exist. Russia will turn away from them, then Azerbaijan and Turkey will crush them and not choke. Therefore, it was and will be that Russia guarantees that Armenia exists

    Oh, it's hard to imagine "people of the Caucasian nationalities" making anything mechanical ...
    No offense to them and the Georgians, but YerAz, KaZ "Kolkhida" and Su-25 went down in history as devices "with temper"!

        This is a separate case)))
        From life:
        A neighbor lived in his father’s house. A pensioner who worked all his life behind a steering wheel. His story:
        - Even during the Soviet Union they sent me to Kutaisi "Colchis" from the factory to pick up and drive to Kiev. Well, I got it, checked the equipment, refueled, bought some food and set off ... Already at the border of the Georgian SSR, a Georgian traffic cop stopped me. It can be seen that he is simply bored, but here the numbers are transit.
        He stopped, presenting the documents to him. He looked and did not even believe:
        - Darago, where are you going? !!
        - To Kiev ...
        - What a brave person you are! ...
        He went to his motorcycle, pulled out of a stroller and gave me a bottle of wine! ..
        laughing

          Kutaisi is Georgia. When ERAZ was allocated to our plant in 1984, an entire brigade from the CTC, two drivers and two mechanics with full equipment went to get it, since without the full preparation the miracle of the Armenian automobile industry would simply crumble along the road.
          On the other hand, the "Nairi" family of Soviet digital electronic computers was developed in Yerevan.
          But having experience of communicating with Armenian metallurgists, I am skeptical about the "Armenian OPK".

      Then assembly or production is more of a strategic mistake. It would be more logical to give the sales departments of factories there (which will be well placed on the basic mentality), which would be involved in promoting products on world markets.

          Not a match, too poor assortment in this "greengrocer's shop" - there is not enough "vegetables" - all sorts of pomegranates, cereals - bullet cartridges by weight, large fruits - such as shells, bombs and mines, seasonings - factory striking elements, "mangal firewood" - weight explosives, and a showcase with "meat" would not hurt - tanks, artillery, and that's all.
          Well, if it’s a little more serious, then such a market will be scattered in the port, at the gangways and ports of the ship - the main conflicts are African, and there the "greengrocers" will have to go to the customers on a dry cargo ship or an auto transporter.

    Sorry, I didn’t read the whole thread, but I want to express my opinion about the event: mocking is simply mediocre, because it’s better to do something, get experience in organizing, establishing production processes, and practice the final stage technology. After that, you can collect anything and have a structure that will take into account the arising needs! Comrades, you do not take into account the process of the Second World War?
