"Barrel bore rupture": Ukrainian "Hammer" exploded in Donbas again

The infamous Ukrainian 120-mm mortar "Molot", nicknamed the "destroyer of the Armed Forces of Ukraine", again "distinguished itself". According to the intelligence service of the NM LPR, another mortar explosion led to the death of servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.


According to the official representative of the NM LPR Yakov Osadchiy, as a result of the explosion of the Molot mortar at the position of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the JFO zone, two Ukrainian servicemen were killed, two more were seriously injured.

March 23 in the 9th battalion of the 59th brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine due to the rupture of the barrel of the M120-15 mortar "Hammer", which in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was nicknamed "weapon self-destruction ", four militants were seriously injured, two of whom died on the spot

- said in a statement.

According to the available information, the fact of the death of servicemen is presented as a result of "violation of the rules when handling weapons", a special commission has been appointed to find out the reasons for the incident.

Judging by the message of the NM LPR, a mortar of the "old" version М120-15 exploded at the position of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, serial deliveries of which to the Armed Forces of Ukraine began in 2016. Recall that the mortar 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 Ukrainian servicemen, 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.

At the beginning of this year, representatives of the Mayak plant, which developed the mortar, announced the return of the Hammer to us the armament of the Armed Forces of Ukraine after the modernization that took two years. At the plant, the mechanism for preventing double loading was finalized, the base plate was replaced with a lighter one, and the wheel travel mechanism was finalized.

      That's just funny. The design of the mortar is extremely simple. A pipe, inside at the bottom there is a protrusion - a striker. There is a small device on the barrel that does not allow the mine to be lowered into the barrel while the previous one is there. WHAT CAN BE DONE WRONG so that this structure will not withstand a shot. Only one barrel of scrap metal to do

      Let's think about the future and think strategically!

      I'll be honest.
      I somehow healed, surprisingly, I remember the first arrivals. What future are you talking about, what strategy) is still alive, and good)
      But seriously, this is for a long time. And do not indulge yourself with the thought that there are still brothers. For 7 years, a new young growth has already grown up, hungry, angry, which is seriously cultivated in line with the current policy.
      It won't be easy, we are already colliding ..
      By the way, Ukrainians are more pragmatic about this - whoever we do not kill during the capture, we will imprison, the rest to their historical homeland. Therefore, in my opinion, there can be no question of any citizenship for these disabled people that they should be supported. Why should they give it automatically, in the sense automatically)
      There is a precedent - Yugoslavia. Let Blinkin now fly the plane over the Atlantic, Poland introduces paratroopers to Lviv ...
      It would be interesting to look at this alignment to see, I'm afraid I will not live)

    For the sake of curiosity, I googled about the 9th mechbat on the Internet and it turned out that this unit is partially located in the city of Kodyma, Odessa region, and partially located near Mariupol, Donetsk region. And how is the reconnaissance of NM LPR to the zone of responsibility of units of the 1st AK DPR? Something smacks of fake, and the ukrovs are quiet, they usually howl about the violation of the Minsk agreements.

      According to the intelligence service of the NM LPR, another mortar explosion led to the death of servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

      so the answer is given in the article
      Как Intelligence reports NM LPR, the next explosion of a mortar led to the death of servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

      in some, intelligence sees the Russian army. Others have gaps - Molotov and Black Panthers with blacks ..
      everything is fine ... in Suvorov's way - write more, why should you feel sorry for their busurman ..
      The usual reception for news.

    The hammer is already working on the "connoisseurs" of its own history.
    It remains for them to call something a sickle.

    the fact of the death of servicemen is presented as a result of "violation of the rules when handling weapons", a special commission has been appointed to find out the reasons for the incident.

    They will have to stick Russia somehow sideways. Without the participation of Russia, even gophers do not die there, and here there are already two corpses of punishers.

    At the plant, the mechanism for preventing double loading was finalized, the base plate was replaced with a lighter one, and the wheel travel mechanism was finalized.
    The most important improvements, ease and simplicity in operation, and also took care of ergonomics. With one shot (the mechanism for preventing double loading was finalized) of four "woodcocks", and the name of the product was never mistaken. Here he is, what a harsh Ukrainian weapons "genius". yes

    What do you look for in the morning to cheer up at breakfast?
    No, not TV, there is a lot of advertising. I read Zenzor, circus, clowns, you can make films like "Dumb and dumber".
    That the descendants of the ancient Sumerians will not take it, all the shit turns out.
    In ancient myths, the king touched any object, they turned into gold, in the present, the Sumerians touch, it turns out shit.

    another mortar explosion led to the death of the Armed Forces of Ukraine servicemen.
    For some reason, that feeling of compassion did not appear, rather regret that the Hammer rarely explodes ...

    The instructions clearly say. Throw a mine in the barrel and yell "Glory to the heroes" the mortar responds "Glory to the heroes but posthumously" and explodes. Everything is correct. What are the claims to the manufacturer

    Loshary. Yes, you finally wrap the trunk with wire in several layers. It will look like a collective farm is a collective farm. But it won't break.

    So, let's not teach fascist boys things that can increase the number of possible victims.

    That's right, it is necessary to increase the number of victims among fascist boys, this is much more useful.

    So who makes the "Mjolnir" mortar from a fan pipe .. Except for the "Jumpers", no one has thought of this before. That is why the Scandinavian gods are angry and mock the insane army.

    "violations of the rules when handling weapons",
    ...... you see, yes ... go and the instructions say that a mine should be hammered into the barrel with a hammer. and they hammered them with a sledgehammer .. that's the incident happened ..... now, instead of compensation to the family members of the victims, a bill will come for damage to state property.

    the hammer is good, Petsya is good. the soldiers themselves mow from combat work, pouring sand into the pipe.

    Each Svidonitsik has a Hammer mortar!
