The first batch of KBA.117-02 "infantry variant" grenade launchers arrived at the Armed Forces of Ukraine

The Armed Forces of Ukraine received the first batch of the KBA.30-117 "Infantry Option" 02-mm automatic heavy grenade launcher. According to the press service of the Artillery Armament Design Bureau, the tests of the grenade launcher have been successfully completed.

According to the report, acceptance tests of the first batch of KBA.169-117 "infantry variant" grenade launchers were carried out at the training ground of the 02th training center "Desna". Representatives of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine took part in testing the grenade launchers. After the end of the tests, the entire batch was transferred to the APU. How many grenade launchers are in the transferred batch is not reported.

In October this year, at the Desna test site, type tests of the KBA.117-02 were carried out, after which the grenade launcher was approved for acceptance tests.

The 30-mm automatic grenade launcher KBA.117 is an analogue of the Soviet AG-17 grenade launcher and is intended for installation in combat modules. Accordingly, he has no aiming devices and manual descent. The KBA.117 was adopted in 2019.

KBA.117-02 is an "infantry version" of the grenade launcher, modified for use from the machine. The grenade launcher is designed to destroy enemy manpower and fire weapons deployed behind shelters, in open trenches or trenches, as well as behind natural folds of the terrain. Shooting from it is carried out along a flat or hinged trajectory with single or automatic fire.

      They must have stolen and sold them,
      I really don't understand - after all, Ukraine had HUGE stocks of weapons from the USSR that were not used in warehouses.
      Okay - ammunition and aging, and small arms, grenade launchers? No kidding

        So for 30 years of independence, everything that was acquired by back-breaking labor of the joint venture .., I'm sorry, plundered and sold. The next generations of generals and admirals must be taken care of. We must look to the future.

    Well done, I especially want to note that remembering the "successes" of the "Hammer" mortar, here on tests they decided not to risk it and so gently push the trigger with a stick, pushing it through the hole in the armor plate. Well done. And will such armor plates be issued to the troops? I hope they will be included in the delivery set, along with the "sticks" of remote shooting

    AGS-30 will be "fresher". And much more adapted for use in infantry formations (elementary easier) ... Didn't you pull? Or is it stationary they are removed, and the machines are riveted to them?

      Exactly. In principle, there could not be a single one in the warehouses - there is nothing to copy from, but this one came from the USSR, so it seems that "no one else's" And the AGS-30 seems to be from Tula.

      Lighter is not always better. I remember shooting from AGS-17 - jumping like a madman, the first shot at the target, the rest are somewhere there ...

    An infantryman will get tired of a stationary grenade launcher put on a tripod - you can't run around with it, unless you stand at the checkpoint ..

      Well, do not tell me .... if you want to live, you will not be so hot. And you will run, and climb the mountains, and without a machine you will learn to shoot from the back of the second calculation. The car is just great. With AGS-30 life has not reduced, but with the "flame" - very much even.
      And I will join the previous comments - success, like a hammer, a novelty.

        In my service at 84 at the training ground, I saw with my own eyes how the warrant officer of the platoon of the AGS-17 reconnaissance company worked with his hands! There is a paw, like my two feet! He held one by the machine, the other grabbed the trigger!

    Guys, it seems to me that they were shooting blanks at all - you can't see a single gap in the distance! And if fighting? Most likely it will spread like the notorious "hammer" Yes, and they are afraid of single men - it was not for nothing that they put a shield with a drychik.

    Ukraine declares the transition to NATO standards... Under NATO standard suitable UAG-40 chambered for 40x53mm. In 2017, the UAG-40 was adopted by the Armed Forces of Ukraine ... Today it is reported about the KBA-117-02 ... chambered for 30x29mm - which are produced in Russia. Where will the "firewood" be taken from? (maybe from Bulgaria - by remaking AR-ROG grenades).

    Of course, the main thing is that "not from the Muscovites." and in the end, nothing new, because exactly according to Kipling, "Banderlogists do not have their own language, they use stolen words" wassat

    Earlier, they still boasted of a 30-mm hand-held "sniper" grenade launcher "Valar" ... They also promised on the basis of this sample a 40-mm version to make ... "a little bit later"! Personally, I have not seen any mention of these "products" for a very long time ...

    Is there anything constructively distinguishing it from AGS-17 except for the name and the shitty metal?
