The combat module "Hunter" for armored vehicles received a new machine gun

Combat module "Hunter" for armored vehicles received a new machine gun, replacement weapons carried out on an initiative basis. According to the press service of Uralvagonzavod, tests of the module with the new weapon were completed successfully.


According to the report, the BM (combat module) "Okhotnik" was equipped with a new version of the 6P49 "Kord" machine gun. The new version of the machine gun was created at the "Plant named after Degtyarev" (ZiD) and in November 2020 received the letter O1 (start of serial production). Details about the new weapon are not given in the message.

The new machine gun created by OJSC "Plant named after Degtyarev" allows to significantly improve the characteristics of the combat module, increasing the competitiveness of our product and placing it on a par with the world leaders. The module was improved by the enterprise on its own initiative

- TASS quotes the words of Sergey Abramov, deputy chief designer for control systems of NPO Elektromashina.

In the near future, NPO Elektromashina, which produces the BM Okhotnik, will start supplying modules with a new machine gun. It is specified that this BM will also be supplied to the fleet for arming boats and small ships. In the "marine" version, the module was named "Narwhal".

In 2019, the "Hunter" combat module was put into service as part of the "Typhoon-U" armored vehicle. The BM is armed with a 12,7-mm Kord machine gun, stabilized in two planes, allowing it to hit targets in motion at long range. The turning speed of the weapon is 40 degrees per second; the module's ammunition load includes 250 rounds. The sight has two channels - television, which allows you to detect a target at a distance of up to five thousand meters, and thermal, with half the detection range - up to 2,5 km. The installed laser rangefinder measures distances up to 10 km. The temperature range of the module is from –60 to +50 ° С.

The development of the module was carried out at NPO "Elektromashina" (Chelyabinsk), part of the corporation Uralvagonzavod.

According to the developers, the original design of the module allows it to be installed on any land and sea equipment, in particular, on armored vehicles of the Tiger, Typhoon, armored personnel carriers, as well as any tracked vehicles based on BMP, MT-LB, BMD, etc. etc. Application on stationary objects is possible.

    Just the most interesting thing - about the innovations in the new model - nothing was reported.

      There is no doubt that the new Cord is made in the same installation dimensions, and all innovations are contained in electronics.

        The article is short, I read it carefully.
        I understood from it that this BM "Hunter" is different from the one that was put into service in 2019. it was an upgraded / modified machine gun.
        Correct if wrong.

            In fact, in the west, there is already a reassessment of the use of armored vehicles and their functionality. The main thing now (more precisely, one of the main ones) is that the technique must detect attacks from above and be protected from them as much as possible.

              If you listen to cries that tanks have outlived their usefulness due to drones, you should make shushpants with bulletproof armor in vertical projection and a heavily armored roof.

              that is, every car, tank, every one that moves, must be equipped with radar and air defense missiles?

            It seems that they increased the survivability of the machine gun and the barrel in particular. The ammunition load of 250 rounds against 50 infantry and 150 tank ammunition suggests this. Perhaps they changed the ammunition ... they added, for example, a belt pretensioner, which allows using a longer belt.
            And besides electronics, there is a lot of things that can be improved if you do not rest on the mass of the product.

        And what, there are microprocessors on the "Kord" machine gun? belay
        PS From a "bearded" anecdote: "Attempts to use electromagnetic weapons by American troops against Saddam Hussein's troops in Iraq were ineffective: It turned out that there were no Kalashnikovs microprocessors! ... ". laughing

      innovations in the new model were not reported.
      in the end:
      According to the developers, the original design of the module
      , that is, the newest, the originality of the design of the BM and "Korda", plus a rangefinder and "other" things (camera and thermal imager), which are really used everywhere, but they only, surprisingly, right now :)

      Dreams-dreams ... But it was said long ago:

      Where a heavy tank will not pass
      And the armored train won't rush
      A soldier crawls on his belly
      And nothing will happen to him.

          It does not run very quickly. After all, it's one thing to shoot in a commercial, and another to grovel on the intersection.
          And by the way, these 2-legged and 4-legged, alas, are not Russian, but American, or rather, South Korean.
          The robots of Boston Dynamics, which in 2020 could not find investors in the US and was sold to the Koreans from Hyundai for $ 1,1 billion.
          How Koreans will apply and develop their developments, in what directionrequest
          But for sure, there is no such thing in Russia yet ...

    The installed laser rangefinder measures distances up to 10 km.

    Why a machine gun 10 km?

      Obviously, so as not to create a special rangefinder for the machine gun. request

    received the letter O1 (start of mass production)

    Not serial, but production of an experimental batch. According to the test results of which letter A will be assigned (or not assigned) and serial production will be started (or not started).

    Is this the creation of a machine gun for combat automated systems, or what kind of improvements I don't understand?

      optimization fellow , just optimized and taken from the warehouses to free up the area, probably ..., although everything is in the conservation room ...! But the main thing is that our and original laughing , I wonder what years of release, those "Cords" ???

    It would be interesting to know the details about the "new version of the 6P49 Kord machine gun! After all, the" old version "was one of the best in the world, if not the" best "!

    The essence of claims and confusion about what is described in the article is not clear.
    The module has certain characteristics. Swing speed, stabilization setpoints, etc.
    Most likely, the new machine gun has a lighter weight, and possibly has other trigger characteristics.
    Thus, either the rate of fire of the machine gun itself has been increased, the time between the command and the shot has been reduced, or the turret rotates even faster than 40 degrees / sec. etc.

    As I understand it, the old and dull Kord has finally been replaced
    to Kord?

    Quote: "The Hunter was equipped with a new version of the 6P49 Kord machine gun."
    "In 2019, the combat module" Hunter "was put into service
    as part of the Typhoon-U armored car.
    BM is armed with a 12,7 mm Kord machine gun,
    stabilized in two planes (huh ??),
    allowing to hit targets in motion at long range. "

    I can't even imagine what it would be like if instead of Korda,
    would put Kord, for example.
    TOTAL: I think the "hex" mountings have been replaced with "stars".
    Otherwise, I missed something between the lines.
    Then I'm sorry.
