Will sanctions for the production of Kalashnikovs in the United States follow: a possible response from Russia

78

There is nothing to think of again that already exists. Such an idea arose in the minds of the US military when they turned their attention to a Kalashnikov assault rifle.


About this writes the American edition of Forbes.

The US decided that it should arm their allies weaponsproduced back in the Soviet Union. Although its characteristics are inferior to modern models, it often surpasses new developments in reliability and ease of use. Moreover, many US allies in different parts of the world still use weapons originally from the USSR.

The Americans were interested in Soviet ATGMs, RPG hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers, Kalashnikov assault rifles, missiles, as well as ammunition for small arms and artillery.

At the same time, they cannot buy Soviet (Russian) weapons and ammunition according to the standard US scheme. The US Armed Forces note the "limited supply sources" and the ban on a number of European countries from transporting this dangerous cargo through their territory. In addition, the sanctions that the United States imposed on various countries of the world can become an obstacle.

Then in the USA they came to the conclusion that the production of Kalashnikovs and other Soviet weapons should be established.

It will be sent to governments and various armed groups in Africa and the Middle East, supported by the Americans. Most of them have been using Soviet weapons for decades and have mastered it perfectly. Unlike modern Western-made weapons, Kalashnikovs and RPGs are easier to use and do not require laborious maintenance.

The whole question is in Russia's position: is our country going to react to unilateral measures for the unlicensed production of Russian-made weapons in the United States? Will Russian sanctions be imposed against the US? .. A possible response from Russia could be to produce its own copies of American weapons and ammunition for "third countries."

    Military patents are very short: 15 years.

          You do not seem to understand anything in production, technology, metal science, etc.
          In order not to "rivet", but to make it normally, you need the entire package of documents, all the know-how.

      This is not about patents, but about production licenses. But without these licenses, now about a dozen countries of the "Kalash" are doing, without experiencing any legal consequences or remorse. In the US, civilian "Kalashnikovs" also seem to have been produced for a long time by some RWC; what will prevent them from riveting them for the military in the same way?

      The concept is different. The AK design is designed for mass production in any large enough factory with primitive press-forging equipment and cheap unskilled labor. The design of the AR-15 and its derivatives (in particular, the M-16) is designed for small-scale production at any small factory that has several CNC machines and trained operators for them. It is not without reason that approximately 150 AK-type assault rifles were produced in the world, and only 000 of the AR-000 type. The difference is an order of magnitude.
      American AK clones usually have a milled receiver. Although the milling process is roads, the volume of production is not large enough to recoup the stamps.

        Yah? So, dear Mikhail, do you know that M-16s were produced in the USSR? Yes, yes - were made! And with American marking! Just like AKM and AK-47 (with Soviet (!) marking) were also produced in the USA! True, this was all done in the strictest secrecy (both here and there). Moreover, there are NO differences in accuracy and accuracy of the battle! It was possible to determine the difference (country of origin) only by the spectral analysis of the metal (and even then it is ambiguous!). The information was received from a friend of mine, who "shot" them in the late 70s!

            The article is titled "Will there be sanctions ...".
            Sanctions must be effective, painful, instructive.
            For example, you can impose sanctions on the supply of aviation titanium to the United States.
            Oops ... and got up the aviation industry. Boeing
            Will our manufacturer suffer?
            Increase supplies to Airbus - if the Boeing rises, it will get more orders. And it's time to build your planes - they have to plague your titanium on them.
            This will be VERY painful.
            The USA will not be able to quickly compensate for these supplies - it will take more than a year to find a new supplier and organize logistics.
            Or introduce sanctions for the supply of nuclear fuel for their nuclear power plants. lol
            Very painful sanctions will turn out - they have nowhere to take the fuel rods, now there is a shortage of reactor fuel ... And they DO NOT have their own capacities.
            And if the sanctions coincide with the Chinese ones against Lockheed Martin and rare earth metals ...
            Yes, under the Negro pogroms ...
            Yes, under the coronovirus ...

              Boeing would not get up. He would buy titanium from another manufacturer. The plane will become a thousand bucks more expensive, well, not too scary. But our manufacturer will suffer significantly. It may not bend, but it will not be able to flourish either, those few superjets and military aircraft a year will not fully load the plant with work.

They built their own medium-haul highway, and it covered with cracks. Now they are racking their brains and re-counting the glider ... Who SHOULD provide such volumes immediately in the entire assortment?
                In essence, this will have to be deployed, launched, production, staff recruited, brought to the desired quality and volume of production.
                This is YEARS.
                Over the years, Boeing will lose VERY much on the market.
                And over the years our Aviaprom should finally start.
                MS-21 is planned at the first stage to produce 70 pcs. per year, then bring to 100 pcs. Next - how it goes.
                IL-76MD90A is a large aircraft. They are going to produce in two lines - the first stage (line) - 18 pcs. per year, the second stage (line) - 36 aircraft per year.
                Preparing to launch a new version of the IL-96 (the first two in construction). First limited edition with 4 engines. After the appearance of the PD-35 - with a new wing in a twin-engine version.
                IL-114 for nearby highways will also soon be certified in a series. They need a lot for domestic lines, and they should go for export.
                IL-112 - I hope they do it, they will lighten the fuselage by 1,5 - 2 tons and also into production.
                For the Super Jet, three domestic engines and other native components should appear in a year's time. In this guise, they are ready to take it, and it is in this guise that it is POSSIBLE its normal after-sales service (with an imported zoo for components, this was in principle an unviable undertaking).
                Orders for the VKS - restarting the production of Tu-160M ​​\ M2, Tu-22M3M.
                By the middle-end of the decade, mass production of a wide-body long-range aircraft of joint Russian-Chinese development will begin.
                Russia has 50% in the project and we are to build wings, keels, plumage and most likely - engines.
                The quality requirements for constructive titanium are very high, and perhaps at least some of the most responsible and critical elements can also be supplied by Avisma.
                There are a lot of aircraft listed above, all of them use constructive titanium in the power pack.
                Yes, and Airbus, after the collapse (and it has already begun, without our sanctions) of Voeing, will increase sales, and, accordingly, the demand for our titanium.
                If wisely, then everything will be only a plus.
                But we need FABERGE.
                Titanium.
                And BRAINS are not "artificial intelligence" or HSE graduates.
                All of the above is our potential, but to realize it ... WILL is needed.

                Not to the sweetness of life, but to SERVE.

And open it was possible to spread it as it should and put a normal wiver. I think the next step, he will break at the chamber level))) And he will have an aper and lover))))
      AK-shaped are good exactly until you use it in stock.
      And even if you do not shove the swath into it, he will not come close to the child of Stoner in accuracy. Gross for sure, selected - maybe it will catch on.

        This is a highly controversial issue. I had to hear different opinions ... And from my own experience - if you put a say in Saigu DN - the difference with the BPZ is enormous .. As for the side crown, I’m not sure of his squint .. It doesn't bother me personally. But to clean a fixed tube is not a pleasant experience ..

          And what is the difficulty of such cleaning? I drove a rag with solvent on it and paper or felt wad dry. All. At the end I sprayed. There is only soot.
          The fact that Saiga (we don’t take shorties) shoots, for example, is extra best - a fact. But you will not find me a single video where ak / saiga at 300m puts at least a4 on the floor. In stock never in a life. And I'm even ready to make an assumption on 308win. Standard with a 39 sleeve this is generally impossible with any cartridge.

      Why are we going to forbid them? Stop selling aluminum? Or grandmother to import stolen into our banks?
      With grain, too, the ban would be so-so.
      Basically, we are interested in everything that makes up a decent share of profit in goods turnover.
      Like oil and gas. We will never stop selling them to the West ourselves. We need money. They will find where to buy, let them treasure but buy.

    The whole question is in Russia's position: is our country going to respond to unilateral measures for the unlicensed production of Russian-made weapons in the United States?
    Yes, there is no question. As early as October 10, 2018, Rostec made a statement that the production of Russian small arms in the United States without any corresponding legal permission from Russia would be considered intellectual theft.
    Back in 2017, the SBIR program was opened, a kind of competition among arms manufacturers to create analogues of the PKM and NSV machine guns. A year later, Rostec made a statement.
    However, there is one point. The SOCOM plan specifically provides for the use of weapons that "resemble" Russian ones, but are not necessarily their direct copies. The United States has experience of such maneuvers - Kalashnikov USA, which develops, manufactures and sells Kalashnikov-style firearms for law enforcement, military and commercial markets.

    This is the "Kalashnikov-style" US132Z. Rostec cannot make any claims on this matter. Dillon Aero, Knight's Armament Company and McNally Industries are currently working on designs "in the style of the PKM and NSV".
    As for the maxim "A possible response from Russia could be its own production of copies of American weapons and ammunition for" third countries "- this could only be written by a very narrow-minded person who does not know the question at all, that is, a typical author of the VO website.

    A possible response from Russia could be its own production of copies of American weapons and ammunition for "third countries."
    This is utter nonsense. To intensify the sale of our weapons, plus prohibit prosecution for pirated copies of films, programs and much more, actively pirate technical solutions and technologies - this is a worthy answer. Leave the anti-piracy law for the blaziru, but not enforce it. China has been doing this for many years. And we spread rot on teachers for pirate Windows.

    When is it arrogant and 2 rubles more expensive than all the rest of the statesmen asked someone about permission? They are the hail on the hill, the 4th Rome and the beacons of democracy. The riots of black anti-fascist extremists fueled by democrats (with the collection of donations under the cover of BLM through transit spacers for the elections of their loved ones) went to the military industrial complex. Weapons have never sold so well in the United States.
    The revenue is no longer in the millions, but in the billions of dollars. Therefore, the most popular among Latinos, Chinese and black citizens of the United States, machines are leaving sales like pies. In what, in what, but in an automatic weapon, Ak will give odds to any AR devices (of course, AR has its charms, but we argue that we are more familiar and understandable in Russia). Historically, we were not very good with pistols, although now it seems to be getting better too. What should manufacturers in the US do against this background? Buy AK from China or India? Of course, it's more profitable to make them yourself. So they will stamp. And the Russian Federation will not be able to influence this in any way.
    Only one thing is alarming. If the elections are held and Trump will win or he will lose, but he will resist and will not leave the post, accusing the Democrats of falsification - then all these AK and AR can go to the chord and NEW Civil war in the USA will flare up for the interests of the offended esteem from the Democrats.

    The only effective answer to the Americans could be a public statement on the refusal of American copyright holders in the legal protection of intellectual property rights in Russia, and all copyright holders - from weapons to software, and Hollywood products.

    We produce arches, just like Kalash, they are not patented. Anyone can produce. In Vietnam, Galilas are doing at the factory of Grandpa Ho. In Afghanistan, in the kishlaks, the Abdullahs master them after the poppy is weeded. So sanctioners, go ahead, trumpet testament.

    Russian problems (oil, gas, etc.) are resolved in the courts of European countries, and the United States has its own court ... they will turn it around as they want, then they will say to themselves: - "The court ruled!" and go to do what they want. In general, some kind of sadomasochism, the EU has declared us sanctions, an economic and information war, and we are subject to the Geyropov court ... !!! ????? Empire damn ...... !!!!!!!
