In the Ukrainian border service "NATO caliber" replaces Kalashnikov assault rifles

40

The State Border Service of Ukraine confirmed the information about the beginning of the process of abandoning Kalashnikov assault rifles. It is reported that one of the first units to switch to another rifle weapon, was the 10th detachment of the State Border Guard Service "Dozor"


It is noted that the Ukrainian border guards will gradually switch to "NATO caliber".

According to the latest information, the fighters of the 10th border detachment received assault rifles of Ukrainian production - UAR-15. This is the Ukrainian version of the famous American AR-15 assault rifle. Caliber UAR-15 - 5,56 mm (chambered for 5,56x45 mm).

The press service of the State Border Guard Service notes that the choice is due to the fact that Ukraine is moving to NATO standards, and the 5,56 mm caliber is "the most common caliber in the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance." Additionally, it is reported that the choice of UAR-15 allows supporting the Ukrainian manufacturer.

The UAR-15 is a modular small arms with a Picatinny rail. Earlier it was reported that the military considered the used mechanism for switching modes of fire inconvenient.

In the Ukrainian border service "NATO caliber" replaces Kalashnikov assault rifles


From the message of the press service of SPSU:

The modularity of the weapon and the adjustable buttstock allow you to customize the weapon for a particular soldier taken for ease of use.

It is important to note that not all components of the UAR-15 assault rifle are Ukrainian. Thus, Ukraine buys trigger mechanisms and barrels of automatic small arms from the United States for further assembly of weapons at local facilities.

According to the latest information, the purchase of such rifles from the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine is at least 40% more expensive than the purchase of Kalashnikov assault rifles. But Ukraine is a rich country ...

      A normal rifle of good quality .... but there is a video of the shooting test? .. with me-16 I saw ... not impressed ... if this is a wunderwaffle in the image and likeness of me-16 then ..... in short, the black market AK will be filled and the soldiers from 404 will nervously point a finger at the detective ... 404 is the right way to go.

        This is a military version of the civilian version of the z-15, which was produced for a long time in Ukraine, for 10 years already.
        Reviews about her are good.

          This is the military version of the civilian version of the z-15 ........ the civilian version is not the same as the combat version. in battle, as a rule, fire density is needed. that is, how much RELIABLE small arms can "spit out" ammunition ...... I repeat there is no video on this topic ... and those that are on me-16 are not impressive .... another joke z-15, this is on the go when Zelensky was 15?
          Reviews about her are not bad ....... for one-time shots, maybe, for example, with my MC-21, I don’t goof off. nevertheless, the barrel haul was the reason for the sale. although the MC-21 is a good rifle bike. but in terms of fire density it will not exceed AK

    According to the latest information, the purchase of such rifles by the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine is at least 40% more expensive than the purchase of Kalashnikov assault rifles.

    According to whom? And what kind of AK purchases, from whom? Has the State Border Guard Service bought machines abroad in the last 30 years? Or maybe they bought the Soviet AKs that remained in the warehouses of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, that is, they actually got them for free? In addition, there is no production of Kalashnikov cartridges in Ukraine, and 5.56 can be obtained from American military aid.

      in the warehouses of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine there are still Soviet AK

      If I am not mistaken in the figure, up to 1991 million AK of different models were stored in warehouses on the territory of Ukraine in 2. (Or this is the total number of "drill" shooters.)

      Until 2014, Ukraine had a Luhansk cartridge plant. True, I don't know how he worked.

        He also did NATO ones, in the summer of 14 there was a lot of howling about "NATO shells" at the positions of the terrorists. In fact, most of them ended up with the marks of the Luhansk cartridge.

    Kalashnikov 40% cheaper ?! When was it purchased, or did they just take the price at the RAO warehouse, through the accounting department? AK is an excellent machine gun for an ordinary infantryman. But if we don't make it ourselves, who should we buy from ?!

    The US Congress is considering an increase in military assistance to Ukraine from 250 to 300 million dollars. next year. It is for this "help" that the Ukrainians will buy American machines and "junk boats" to be written off in the US .. The Anglo-Saxons will not have one cent slip past their wallet, calling it "help" in all directions. As a result, these 300 lemons will again return to the US military-industrial complex.

    Yes, just everything - where will you pick up cartridges - goofy beggars? at any base of the division - there were more than 500 million cartridges, and if you take into account three dollars apiece - who will sell you that much to non-people ??

    “So, Ukraine buys trigger mechanisms and barrels of automatic small arms from the United States.” This phrase contains the whole meaning of the transition to NATO standards. Americans give a loan, and then they buy coal, old boats, barrels, cartridge Plants. Denyushki are returned immediately, and the great-great-grandchildren of Ukrainians will pay the percentages.

    Four years ago, there was infa about the replacement of the AK and its modifications with NATO samples in the state border service of Ukraine, the production of NATO-standard ammunition seems to have already been deployed in Ukraine, recently a plant, in my opinion, near Vinnitsa was opened, I wonder who is the beneficiary of the dill company, probably Poroshenko or his entourage
