The scouts of the combined arms army of the Air Defense Forces armed themselves with modernized ASM "Val" assault rifles

The scouts of the combined arms army of the Air Defense Forces armed themselves with modernized ASM "Val" assault rifles. A batch of improved special machine guns entered service with the intelligence units of the Air Defense Forces. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Defense.


As noted, this is the first batch of ASM "Val", which entered the combined arms army stationed in the Amur region. After sighting weapons scouts will begin the winter training phase with new assault rifles.

The new special 9 mm assault rifle is designed for silent firing at a range of up to 400 meters. It differs from the previous version in improved ergonomics, the presence of a new day and night vision sight, an increased magazine with an ammunition load of up to 30 rounds. It is also worth noting the convenience of using the new machine gun with the appearance of bipods and unified Picatinny rails for attaching various devices that increase shooting capabilities

- said in a statement.

It was reported at the beginning of July last year that the Tula Arms Plant (TOZ) began mass production of the modernized VSS Vintorez sniper rifle, designated VSSM, and the modernized special AS Val submachine gun, designated ASM. After that, the modernized weapons began to enter service with parts of the Russian army.

AC (special assault rifle) "Val" is developed on the basis of VSS "Vintorez" and is 70% unified with the rifle. The 9 mm assault rifle is designed for silent shooting at a range of up to 400 meters (sighting). It is considered one of the most accurate and reliable samples of special small arms in the world for special forces.

    How much does it cost in service, and has just received a 30-round magazine, after several wars, and when a new Kalashnikov is on its way, which will replace it ... when will we already learn how to quickly respond to comments from the troops?

      Do not forget that from the moment Gorbachev came to power and then for 15-20 years, the financing of the army, and the development of the design bureau, was beggarly. I served a conscript in the early 2000s in one of the best parts of the Far East at that time, I know how they serve in the same unit now. It is still one of the best. But the support, combat training then and now, what the would-be reformers brigade turned into by the beginning of the 2000s and what it has become in 10 years, besides 2010 ... These, as they say, are two big differences. And in the mid-90s my father served in the 35th army. So I know about the mess of those years not by hearsay or from the jaundiced press. I can compare myself with how they serve now. ...

        I'll tell you this ... it takes 3 months or more to agree on changes in the drawings with the MO. But this is from the developer's side.
        The 30-round magazine is not a high-tech product. And after receiving complaints from the troops, in two or three years it was possible to equip all the barrels with a set.

      So it is for that and special, that it was supposed, they would not water it from a machine gun, such as a city battle, from an ambush, etc. And yes, 20 rounds in a couple of seconds)))

      the first to receive 30 rounds of cartridges was SR-3M "Whirlwind", which is unified with magazines from VSS / AS (10/20 parons) ...

    I read a lot of reviews about the Val machine. Fighters often complained about the difficulty of cleaning the muffler and barrel after firing. Interesting: in the new version these issues are somehow solved ?!

      I wonder what the difficulty is? The muffler is removable, collapsible. Cleaning should be no different from cleaning the good old PBS.

        The complexity was in gunpowder, or rather in its quality. Carbon deposits settled very tightly and solidified this was the main problem, as far as I know.

          And, well, the machine has nothing to do with it. And in general, I remember, if there is no way to immediately clean it, I splashed it into the "barrel" from an oil can, and that's all. And already at home, while you clean the machine gun / pistol, the disassembled muffler will soak in the solution. Until you get to it, it is already cleaned normally, without problems with any gunpowder, probably laughing drinks

          So the machine is special, it does not imply work in the "infantry ranks" This weapon is for reconnaissance groups and should not shoot for a long time. Hence the store supply for 20 rounds in total

            In theory, a couple of shots are needed from him in a burst of 2 rounds in order to penetrate the "object" or to provide surprise when organizing an ambush.

        Earlier in the Special Forces, the AKMS (H2) was the main weapon - it was silent, and had a "night light" with it, and you can conduct a normal battle. There were 5 of them in the group.
