Russian gunsmiths surprised visitors of the Army-2020 forum with new weapons

37

The International Military-Technical Forum "Army" is considered one of the world's leading exhibitions of weapons and military equipment.


Many novelties from the forum participants surprised the visitors.

Among them, for example, it is worth paying attention to a series of pistols developed by TsNIITOCHMASH JSC, which is part of the Rostec state corporation. It is created on the basis of the 9mm Boa pistol. In addition to it, the series included sports pistols "Aspid" of 9 mm caliber, a marker pistol of 7,62 mm caliber and a compact self-loading RG120-2 of 9 mm caliber.

TsNIITOCHMASH also presented a modernized version of the PSS Vul silent pistol. This is a self-loading pistol PSS-2 of 7,62 mm caliber.

Among the various novelties presented at the International Military-Technical Forum "Army-2020", the products of the Kalashnikov concern took a special place. It is distinguished by its originality and variety.

Of course, "Kalashnikov", possessing the highest authority among the world's manufacturers of small arms weapons, could not help presenting its newest samples on the forum.

In particular, at the site of the concern, you can see the new RPL-20 belt light machine gun, which appeared this year. The starting point for its creation was the previous model RPK-16, which needed significant improvements. As a result, the concern's specialists have created a fundamentally new model RPL-20. The new 5,45 mm machine gun is equipped with non-scattering belts for 100 rounds and the ability to change the barrels depending on the task at hand.

The concern also demonstrated the new AK-19 assault rifle, which is a modification of the AK-12, which was put into service two years ago. It hardly differs from its predecessor. The only difference is that it does not use a standard 5,45 x 39 mm cartridge, but a NATO 5,56 x 45 mm. In addition, the stock, pistol grip and rear sight were changed.

But "Kalashnikov" was not limited to small arms only. Among the developments he presented were other novelties.

As part of the federal strategy of import substitution, the concern created a special hull wheeled floating chassis SKKSH-586. Earlier, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation received similar equipment from the Minsk Wheel Tractor Plant (MZKT).

The chassis is equipped with bulletproof armor and is capable of speeds up to 90 km / h. So far, it is envisaged to use it for the warhead of the Tor-2M air defense missile system, but in the future it is planned to use it in domestic MLRS and Buk and Pantsir air defense systems.

But the most interesting novelties in the section of air defense means were shown by the Almaz-Antey concern, which is participating in such a forum for the first time. The company demonstrated the Antey-4000 anti-aircraft missile system, a 51P6E2 launcher for combating ballistic missiles as part of a non-strategic missile defense system and a combat vehicle for MANPADS shooters based on the K-4386 Typhoon-Air Defense armored vehicle chassis.

Also noteworthy is the Huska-10 hovercraft with flexible skegs, manufactured by the Kalashnikov concern. This vehicle can move not only on water, but also on land. Its minimum payload is 10 tons. In fact, the ship is a cargo-passenger ferry for year-round use on the shallow coast and in remote northern regions.

          "In addition, the industry will extend the service life of USET-80 torpedoes designed to destroy ships, submarines and coastal targets." From the same place. They stubbornly do not want to arm our submariners with adequate weapons of a potential enemy, comparable in terms of harrakistics, with torpedoes, leaving them in a duel situation against enemy nuclear submarines and nuclear submarines in the target position. What is the point in building new boats, shooting at ISIS calibers from the Mediterranean Sea?

        Yes, I'm not special ... But I don't see any fundamental difference. The barrel length is the same. The cartridge is the same ... The bolt group is perhaps displaced ... Well, and the butt of the thrusters ...
        "The first version from 2012 which participated in the competition and what is produced under the AK-12 brand are completely different models. The real AK-12 is the same Soviet AK74M," optimized "towards the use of surrogate materials in the 80s years, but hung with rails wherever possible, but completely unnecessary. The layout diagram with the barrel fastening to the upper part of the receiver, and the fire mode switch, and cutoff disappeared. But the store now has transparent windows for visual control of cartridge consumption. This is a breakthrough! Yes, our Kulibins have been carrying out a similar level of "modernization" on their own for 20 years already - they simply drill holes in the store and seal them with transparent tape. "
        "But the muzzle brake-compensator got a bayonet connection instead of a threaded one. And to remove it, you need to use a small punch. The receiver cover can now also be removed only with a special tool, and it is held on two shifts that are easy to lose if suddenly The soldier will be impatient to clean the machine gun in the field. What is the point in flaring the cover, if it has structural backlash, insufficient rigidity and is not suitable for attaching sighting devices, no one knows. As well as for what show-off the Picatinny bar was stuck on the casing of the gas outlet. , of course, it is possible, but after each procedure of incomplete disassembly of the machine gun it will have to be re-shot.

            And you, therefore, tested, compared and yourself came to the conclusion which AK is better? Or do you just simply believe everything that "official sources" will say?
            “In short, the next“ modernization ”of the AK was held under the slogan“ Let's put PR dust in our eyes and don't change ANYTHING! ”The question arises: why do we need such rearmament at all? If I say that the point is only in cutting the budget, will you believe me? Well, then here are the facts: if the AK74M cost the military about $ 400, then the same railed AK74M with a copied American butt on the tube, with a hollow plastic handle, a collapsible ramrod and a pin-mounted receiver cover cost the military more than 1250 dollars (according to rate at the time the machine gun was put into service)! It turns out interestingly: in 1967, the machine cost 42% of the national average wage, in 2011 - 57%, in 2018 - 215% of the average earnings after deducting personal income tax. "

              Well, you coolly redirected your joint to me. After all, it was you who acted as the "expert" on the AK-12. I only asked you a question, and did not pretend to be an expert, unlike you. When did I tell you that I tested this device?

                How quickly the boorish nature came out. Just now there was a dialogue on "you", but here it was already on "you".
                I didn't introduce myself as an expert. I just expressed my opinion. But in defense of his IMHO he brought some considerations. And what can you write in defense of the "innovativeness" of the AK-12, NON-expert?

        Well, yes, and you are an all-knowing specialist? The ONLY difference between ak-12 and 74 is a free-hanging barrel, that's it. The rest is collective farm tuning, which is the only modern CC capable of. They boasted about the old AK-12 with modern ergonomics, and in the end they merged in comparison with the A-545, which was better in everything, even the price was plus or minus at the level, it was only a little more difficult (which is normal in the 21st century, we have peasants without education, everything that sees the mechanisms for the first time in their life ?!), but then the tops strained the campaign, dragged out the tests, letting the KK blind at least something decent, but only they themselves, without a great man, cannot do anything in weapons. Also with machine guns. Kovrov showed a belt machine gun with the ability to feed from stores, but what about KK? That's right, the PKK, everything is the same, they could not make a tambourine, now they presented the RPL, which is somehow similar to their thoughts.

    yes, they were "surprised", especially at a private demonstration of tank shooting for potential buyers. Of the 16 ATGMs fired from the barrel (5 km from the parking lot at a fixed target), only 8 hit the target, oddly enough, the T-80 and T-90 showed themselves worst of all. the first rocket from the T-90 flew up and you could see how its barrel vibrated (problems with the stabilizer? defective ATGM?), the second rocket buried itself in the sand before reaching it. The T-80 also fired into the sky. Normally hit only from T-72B3
    - it should have been so screwed up winked
