Ukraine began negotiations on the purchase of a batch of NATO assault rifles

The Ukrainian Ministry of Defense plans to purchase a batch of NATO standard assault rifles for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, preliminary negotiations are already underway. The Defense Blog writes about this with reference to a source in the Czech military-industrial complex.


According to the publication, representatives of Ukraine have begun negotiations on the purchase of a batch of 5,56 mm assault rifles with a European contractor, who has not been specifically reported, but the publication is accompanied by photographs of the Czech company EXCALIBUR ARMY, which show assault rifles on the AR-15 platform.

It is noted that the Ukrainian army plans to purchase modern automatic assault rifles of NATO standard, i.e. chambered for 5,56X45 mm. At the same time, it is argued that Kiev is counting on further licensed production weapons on its territory, along with the organization of an ammunition production line.


The assault rifle will weigh 3,26 kg, it has a removable carry handle and a rail mount for mounting scopes and other accessories according to customer needs

- Writes Defense Blog.

At the moment, we are talking about a batch of rifles on the AR-15 platform worth $ 2 million, in the future it is assumed that Western weapons will completely replace the Soviet and Russian Kalashnikov assault rifles, which are currently in service with the Ukrainian army.

    Ridiculously simple! Yes, and they only have enough money for a couple of pieces ...

        And on the topic - a simple question - where will the cartridges be taken from? There are no factories either. And the old stocks of the Soviet - they won't fit

          Of course, we took the path of least resistance.
          Adopt NATO standards wherever it can be cost-effective - at the shooter.
          As for the patrons, the locals have long deprived the dream of building a factory.
          Well, why not just kick it under 5,56?
          To dream is not harmful.

            All my life I believed that it was in the shooter that the ATAS was the most, which is why, in general, there were always transitions from caliber to caliber ... How would it be so mild ... Painful. How many shells do they have per day in the Donbas, and how much ammunition for the riflemen? It's not a secret at all that the first thing that the Independent ran out of was a large caliber for machine guns. And this is at the warehouses of ZapGV !!!

              The entire Soviet backlog can be sold to hot regions without any problems.
              In general, it is quite simple to make the transition step-by-step, which simplifies the process much.
              And the result is obvious: "The Ukrainian Armed Forces are moving to NATO standards."
              And yet I did not write that it is easy. I wrote that it comes with the lowest cost.
              Compared to lithakas, mannered forces, guinto-wings, etc.

          If the Ukrainian army in a couple of years will be at the level of the Baltic, then cartridge factories will not be required ...
          Once a year, they will bring old cartridges from a warehouse in Poland on a cargo Gazelle, enough for everyone to shoot ...

        The toy is not bad, I would even say excellent! With its flaws, but they are everywhere. Honest competitor of AK. I shot from it several times, but more from our barrel to raaaz bully

        Pros:
        Accurate, with cured "childhood diseases", with a lot of body kits and deep customization for rich and poor ...
        In general, I love to watch American weapons bloggers, and they talk in detail about the possibilities and improvements. There are only USM, silencers and butts, flashlights and lasers, simple, night and IR sights ... Hundreds and thousands.
        And often everything is of high quality and working.
        The calibers in this platform are sea, from 12,7 to 5,56. Including exotic.
        It is light ... There the body kits decide.

        Cons:
        Capricious, but not the same as the first products. To our AK for reliability in sand and mud, she still has to try.
        Complicated in the device. Lots of small details.
        Because of the buffer tube (buffer tube, which is part of the butt), it is difficult to put folding butts, Ksyusha (AKSU) does not have this limitation.

        Another design school! And that's it.

          Fact ... Is it necessary ?! What is "NATO standard"? We have been there for so many years and have been sitting on Kalash and do not think to change them at all. We produce new versions a little for the army and sell them to the world. The most expensive Kalash in Schaty is our Arsenalsky.

          And in the warehouses, probably half a million Kalash, how can our army switch to another machine gun. It's a lot of money, down the drain. Well, in 100 years, when a laser rifle appears and they write off half a million, then we will switch to the NATO standard. If we catch up with the "NATO standard" in the salary in the army, it will be great.

      Shot and actively purchased.
      But what about their license, the question is, can they fully release. Initially, they made them for the civilian market, for hunters in small numbers, then for the military, but for special forces, they have no conditions en masse, perhaps.

      And now they are buying a trial batch, perhaps before purchasing a license and large-scale production of weapons and ammunition for a complete rearmament.
