Ukrainian "Hammer" returns to the Armed Forces of Ukraine

The Ukrainian mortar "Molot" returns to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. As reported by the Ukrainian Military Pages, the Mayak plant, the mortar manufacturer, is starting the procedure for adopting the Hammer into service.


It has been almost a year that our team has been preparing for the procedure of putting into service the M-120-15 "Molot" mortar. We understand all the responsibility, considering everything that happened to the Hammer in the past

- the press service of the plant says.

The fact that the modernized version of the Molot mortar is undergoing state tests was reported in early November last year. As reported, "Mayak" has been working to improve the design for two years. At the plant, the mechanism for preventing double loading was finalized, using bronze in the design in addition to steel to reduce corrosion and failure of the fuse mechanism due to the effect of temperature.

In addition, the base plate has been replaced with a lighter one that can be used on hard surfaces. The wheel travel mechanism has been improved, the shock absorbers have been replaced with springs, which are considered more durable.

Recall that the 120-mm mortar "Molot" was approved for use in the Armed Forces of Ukraine in 2015, but due to numerous incidents with the mortar leading to the death of servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, it was decided to remove it from service. According to the official data of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, 13 Ukrainian soldiers were killed by the Hammer.

Earlier it was assumed that the modernized version of the mortar will also receive a new name so as not to cause negative associations among the Ukrainian army, however, if it is adopted, it will go to the troops under the same name.

          Ukrainian mortar "Hammer"

          The title is powerful, of course. Only in essence - regimental 120 mm... They would say that they themselves cannot come up with anything new.
          Although what is there to invent? In the 80s, everything was invented in the Soviet Union - nothing new can be invented here. The mortar is not a machine gun. A pipe with a needle and nothing new ...
          Another "peremoga" ukroVoenprom based on the Soviet 70-80s ... But the bvlo Kharkiv KB, Dnepropetrovsk ... Where did they kill everything?

      Due to the fact that with a lousy financial situation in the country, there are too many applicants for payments from "ATO participants".

      There probably is no fuse against double loading, and when drunk, they charge the second mine constantly.

        This fuse, apparently, was modified and installed. And what to do? The instinct works - there is still a place - go there more. One chibe, one mine.

      It goes something like this.
      They are firing a battery (8 guns), at a firing distance between mortars of about 15-20 meters. Rapid fire is being conducted, every 2-3 seconds a shot is heard from a gun. The roar is serious, all the numbers of the calculation are semi-muffled. Commands are only given only with a roar, on the fire all movements only by running.
      The loader grabs the mine and carries it to the gun, he has no idea whether his gun fired or not. He lowers the mine into the barrel, and the previous mine is in the barrel (prolonged shot, breakage of the trigger cable, injury to the crew number, or something else).
      If you fire a shot after that, it may all end in disaster.
      The double-loading fuse prevents the second mine from being dropped into the barrel.
      The only thing is that this mechanism prevents the mortar from taking "childbirth".

        You need to drink less ... You need to drink less. negative The mortar bifurcates. request You have to charge both. And so the mortarmen are thrown back.

      Elementary. There are two types of shooting - with a cord and a pin. If a misfire occurred when shooting with a line, then in a fever it happens and the second is thrown into the barrel. Yes, and when it is punctured, the mine does not instantly fall on the drummer. If for 120 mm it is still problematic to throw two in a row into the svol, after all, both the weight and it must be raised quite high, then 82 mm - two fingers on the asphalt

    A very correct decision. I approve. In each Ukropskoe bandit formation it is necessary to put a hundred pieces.
    Good weapon, guide. And most importantly, when you shoot with you, the "warriors of the world" are taken to the next world!
