    Isn't it easier to use anti-tank systems for such purposes?

        Well, such a rifle with a muzzle brake gives a sickly flash. The DPR Army has a better one - the ASKV-14,5 "Donchanka" rifle. Caliber 14,5 mm with a silencer and a flame arrester. A truly anti-sniper rifle should provide a stealth shot.

          The question is: for sniper rifles of 7,62 caliber they, I remember, used the barrels of "mosinoks". https://topwar.ru/87012-novaya-ukrainskaya-snayperskaya-vintovka-vm-mp-uos.html
          And for these from the PTRD / PTRS or from the CPV? Or is there a capacity for the production of barrels?

              I read somewhere here for a long time that there were also semi-models based on barrels from DShK and KPV in the Chechen one, but everything there was very difficult with recoil, one lay on the other.

            Here I also remembered the PTRD, which, from the order to the military tests, was done in a month.
            And what about sniper cartridges? Or machine-gun ones will come down ...
            Then I would have preferred CPV: the accuracy and range are the same, but the density of the fire ...

            It's just that instead of machine guns on vehicles and ATGMs, it rolled back to anti-tank rifles. And it is nice to call this case the latter.

              this is probably the currently accepted name for this class of weapon. It is logical, by the way, they do not shoot at a modern tank, it makes no sense.
              They shoot at the material part of the enemy.
              It is called that way all over the world and is issued under that name.
              An anti-materiel rifle (AMR) is a rifle that is designed for use against military equipment (materiel)

      In my opinion - even with a bullet with a caliber of 14,5mm lightly armored vehicles and even more STRENGTHENING can no longer be destroyed. At least from the first shot - to make several shots - will be substituted for a retaliatory strike (shot range 2000m ...) soldier

Where are they going to get ammunition in caliber 14.5 / 114 in a special version ??? They just don't exist in nature. fool, but in Ukraine they are not produced at all ... for what targets did you intend to shoot with "machine-gun" cartridges, for the target - PAROVOZ?

      The trench war gave birth to the "Alligator" ... That's all they could ... I think pride sticks out through the parapet ..

      In the DPR, they released something similar:

      Rifle ASKV-12,7 Donchanka. Caliber 12,7 mm. Weight 26,2 kg. Sighting range up to 1500 m. Cartridge 12,7 × 108 mm for heavy machine guns NSV "Utyos", "Kord" and DShK.

      Rifle ASKV-14,5 Donchanka. Caliber 14,5 mm. Weight 27 kg. Sighting range up to 1500 m. This is a very formidable weapon. Note that the 14,5 × 114 mm cartridge is used in KPV heavy machine guns, various ZPUs and anti-tank rifles. It allows you to confidently hit enemy light armored vehicles and pose a threat even to heavy vehicles.

      Anti sniper rifle gun "Separatist" of 23 mm caliber. Weight 44 kg. The maximum range is 3500 m. Note that 23 × 152 mm is a unitary projectile for artillery systems. Used in anti-aircraft guns 2A7 ("Shilka") and 2A14 (ZU-23-2 or "Zushka"). Execution options: armor-piercing incendiary tracer (BZT), fragmentation incendiary (OZ), fragmentation incendiary tracer (OZT).

            There are different constructors. If a designer has talent, then he can work better than a blinkered specialist. There are examples of such constructors and you know them well - Kalashnikov and Spirits. Dukhov Nikolai Leonidovich, three times Hero of Social Labor, these are the KV and IS tanks, and then, it was he who created our first atomic bomb, the scientists wrote the principles and made calculations of how much charge was needed, and he led the development of the design documentation for the manufacture of specialists on the topic of nuclear there were no weapons either. I'm not talking about the creators of this ersatz rifle, they collected from what was, without showing talent and brains. Usually, specific specialists have an undisguised professional swagger due to their own importance, which quickly disappears after specific design questions. A real designer can create a plow and a vertical takeoff and landing aircraft, if, of course, the goals and objectives are explained to him correctly.

        In South Africa they make sniper cartridges for this caliber, which means there are sniper cartridges of this caliber,
        Second, very often at competitions they take simple cartridges, disassemble them, select the bullets by weight so that they are the same, and after pouring the same amount of gunpowder, they collect such cartridges,
        Ps.
        This is done at all sniping tournaments,

      There are 2 options with cartridges:
      1. Use self-loading cartridges like all high-end snipers do. In all precision shooting competitions, ONLY self-loading cartridges are used. The price of such cartridges is high. But the accuracy is also high.
      2. Use heavy machine gun ammo. They are cheap, but the accurate shooting distance will not exceed 300 meters.
      Dill will obviously go according to the 2nd option. Then there will be no sense from this rifle, in terms of accuracy it will be inferior to Drahunka. And the sound of a shot will be such that from 2 km. it will be clear where they are shooting from.

        This is far from the case, do not use "only" self-loaded cartridges, Most use Factory ammunition of high quality manufacturing and control over their production. Even if they try to equip them on their own ... Where will the source codes of the corresponding approvals be obtained? They, too, are simply No!
        As for the rest, I agree with the machine-gun cartridge ... but they will also be bought in Romania.

        .

        And the point of using self-loaded cartridges? The bullet will not get better from this - I always thought that the accuracy of shooting depends on the quality of the bullet itself, and not on the amount of gunpowder.

        If you - told how "professionals" test Airplanes or air defense systems (which I do not understand at all), for example, I would probably agree ... just not about this miracle ...
        The large-caliber rifle, which is also called an "anti-material or infantry gun", is based on a 14,5 mm 2X35 self-loading self-loading cannon designed for training firing without consuming the main ammunition of Soviet-style tanks equipped with 125 mm guns. This is about the trunks of this caramultuk.
        Well, at the same time, explain ... what kind of "professional" will test the sniper complex - with the help of a submachine gun belay , and others, as I already wrote, are simply NOT IN NATURE! In general, they are not released in Ukraine (even machine-gun ones) !!!

      In your opinion, KPVT cannot conduct aimed fire at group targets and equipment at 1-1,5 km?
      You have some kind of distorted idea of ​​firing machine-gun cartridges.
      In Vietnam / Afghanistan, the fighters managed to hit single growth targets from 700-800 meters or more from large-caliber machine guns, conventional trucks / armored personnel carriers and other equipment to hit with a machine-gun cartridge was more than real and commonplace.
      Specialized sniper cartridges are required mainly for special anti-sniper shooting, or for anti-terror units, in most other tasks they serve only to reduce the number of sighting shots, or to hit the target from the first shot.
      The same M82 / 107 at the beginning of their journey in Iraq used standard machine-gun cartridges from M2 Browning (there was no special ammo for them) and at the same time showed themselves very worthy in the fight against equipment and fortifications like parapets / brickwork. And only on the basis of requests from the fighters and the US Department of Defense, specialized cartridges appeared for the possibility of hitting single targets at long distances.
      Roughly speaking, cartridges are important, but even more important are weapons, the presence / absence of automation, the configuration of the DTK, the blanks used in the production of the barrel, and the stability of the barrel characteristics at different temperatures and its shooting.
      As a striking example, for the AK-74/12 and A-545, a single type of cartridges is used in comparative tests for firing, but the accuracy of the battle is different, I think you already guess why?
      It is quite possible with a machine gun cartridge to effectively fire at typical antimaterial sniper rifles to targets (armored personnel carriers / infantry fighting vehicles / trucks / dugout / mortar crew).

    Well, if the "large-scale" far-flung great-caliberna "and" gvintivka ", then yes. It seems to me that it will take a lot of time for them to memorize when studying the device (judging by the advertising poster) and there will be no time for shooting. Most of the higher education institutions, as they did not know the Ukrainian language, do not know and are not eager to learn (which is good).

    Alligator, you say?

    It is emphasized that all parts of the rifle, including the barrel, are made in Ukraine.

    Well, the losses from it should be less than from the mortar. At the APU)))

      This rifle is not on the knee made like a Hammer - there will be no losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine from it, but the LPNR will have large losses from their use.

        And what, on the outskirts of the trunks have learned to do, right? And where? And for what reason was a batch of machine guns delivered to Turkey - and returned by the Turks? Maybe because the trunks even for 7,62 were not able to blind? Do you think that a torn sniper barrel will add health?
        Not on the knee, that's for sure. In the garage, they did it by cutting the old KPVT trunk, not if the rust hadn't eaten through and through, it would take a couple of shots

          It does not seem that these are old barrels from KPVT - and the rifle itself is clearly not made in garage conditions.

    About the cartridges for this "crocodile" I understood from the comments. And the fact that the trunks for him are the alteration of the KPV trunks. But no one answered the question: were there (were) 404 capacities for the production of such barrels or would the armored personnel carrier be exchanged for scrap - can we make a rifle?

            Clear. This is what I would like to know. Where, and at what enterprise. At least in order to assess the possible production volumes. Alteration of the existing KPV barrels is minuscule, and the production based on the production of new barrels is a completely different scale.

              "And manufacturing based on the production of new barrels is a completely different scale." So this office has its own production of chrome-plated barrels for this 14,5 caliber rifle.

    They took the PTRS, removed the self-cocking, since they cannot recreate it, changed the plywood to plastic - it's done! A new ubergun, capable of hitting an armored personnel carrier from 2 km! (but does not mean that it is capable of piercing the armor of an armored personnel carrier at this distance). TOTAL GLOBAL REMOVAL !!! laughing

      All vinyls have a barrel and a stock, but this does not mean that they are copied from each other. Especially if it is self-loading, and the other is manual reloading

      The barrels are new of our own design and production, and the armor-piercing cartridge 14,5 at a distance of 2000 will definitely pierce the armored personnel carrier's 80 mm frontal 7 mm side.

    ... The new Alligator large-caliber anti-material sniper rifle has been adopted by the Ukrainian army.

    The original thing looks like this
    ... The Ukrainian Armed Forces have adopted the Alligator, a multiply-charged large-caliber anti-material hand-loading rifle.

    Not a word about sniper, classic anti-material rifle.
    Why it was necessary to write about the "sniper", which is not in the news - it's hard to understand
