There was a video of shooting from behind an armor plate on tests of an automatic grenade launcher in Ukraine

37

In Ukraine, tests were carried out of a 30-mm automatic grenade launcher KBA.117-02, created by the DP Artillery Armament Design Bureau. It is an infantry weapon modification widely used by the Ukrainian defense industry in combat modules.


KBA.117 is an analogue of the Soviet AG-17, designed for installation in combat modules. This version of the grenade launcher has no aiming devices and manual release. The KBA-117 grenade launcher was officially adopted by the Armed Forces of Ukraine in 2019.

Taking into account the repeated appeals of the leadership of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the military, KBAV specialists have modified the "modular" version of the grenade launcher to the infantry, easel version.

Type tests of the KBA-30 117.02-mm automatic easel grenade launcher have already been successfully carried out at test range 169 of the Desna training center of the Ground Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.


During the tests, shooting (just in case) was carried out because of the armor plate.

The KBA-117 automatic grenade launcher is designed to destroy enemy manpower and fire weapons deployed behind shelters, in open trenches or trenches, as well as behind natural terrain folds. Shooting from it is carried out along a flat or hinged trajectory with single or automatic fire.

We will remind that earlier in Ukraine they tested and introduced into the troops the Hammer mortar. After being put into service with the Armed Forces of Ukraine, it turned out that mortars of this low quality - there were several cases of rupture during the firing.

    It is not clear what this insert is for. This is a common precaution.
    At a certain stage, a mandatory test element. Did the author throw it at the fan so that instead of the grenade launcher itself, they would discuss this plate?

        The article says that there is a remote control, a manual one is required.
        And the fact that the tests passed normally means created.
        I am sure that at the first stage all grenade launchers are tested in this way, no one canceled the security measures

            Read carefully.
            There the task was to convert from remote control to manual control.
            So the remote was originally, they did it manually. Once again, they did it manually, it was remote and checked the manual.
            So see?

              Along the way, things are really bad if there are no conventional AGS-17 "Flame" easel and you have to remove them from the combat modules and convert them into easel ones.

              Did you yourself understand what you wrote? There is a remote one (read, already tested up and down) = attach a trigger to it (roughly) and also dig it into the ground and pull the trigger by the rope for testing (again — roughly). But: 404 does not look for easy ways, it is simpler than a rope - to put the body by a piece of iron, so that when it breaks, the hands are torn off - the women will still give birth ...

                      You are talking such nonsense ... for the sake of confirming your position .. TE.1. Do you think that this screen will save the warrior when the entire structure explodes? 2. Do you think that in case of failure to exit, the detonation of a grenade (s) of the entire structure, he will not be torn off his hands (s) with which he is trying to do something there? In general - no dispute, just a flood. You are talking nonsense, either out of ignorance or on purpose, because such tests have NEVER been carried out in this format (do not care, from remote control to manual, or completely new). You can either write your opinion to me in HP (so as not to flood) or leave it with you, your beloved.

                        His hands are in cover, the protection in appearance is at least serious enough to withstand the damage of the grenade launcher caused by 30-50 grams of explosives - about as much of it in a 30 mm shot, the grenade launcher stands 1.5-2 m from the shelter, which can be seen at the beginning on the very video that you never watched.

      This type of grenade launcher was developed and adopted by the USSR Armed Forces in the early 70s of the last century. Everything that can be learned and discussed about him is known. By the way, a good thing for those who know how to use. I saw him in business 20 years ago in one region, which was troubled at that time.

      How can you cram a 12,7 × 108 into a 12,7 × 99 chamber and still fire a shot? You will not corny locking the barrel and there will be no shot.
      As for the photo and machine gun, this is an old accordion 2017-2018, which demonstrates what happens to the barrel when it approaches the assigned resource, this is evidenced by the symmetrical divergence of the barrel bore into four parts, most likely along the rifling lines, American sniper BB cartridges for М82 / 107 contain a very powerful powder charge, which is why tired metal "carries" so much.

      Do you want to see the explosion of a 30mm grenade at a distance of more than 1 km? This is a weak grenade, for the sake of the small weight of the grenade launcher for carrying it by the infantry.
      There is a family of 40mm grenades, which are used in grenade launchers, manual reloading and heavier AGS and AG.
