The Ukrainian Armed Forces conducted the first firing of shells purchased in the Czech Republic for the MT-12 "Rapier"

59

Yesterday, the Ukrainian Armed Forces successfully conducted the first firing of 12 mm UOF100 shells purchased in the Czech Republic for the MT-12 Rapier cannon. Each ammunition hit right on target.


This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.

Artillerymen of the 30th Separate Mechanized Brigade of the Ground Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine carried out the shooting at the Rivne training ground. During the tests, the military carried out a visual inspection of the shells, and also measured their average, maximum and muzzle velocity. In total, 16 shots were fired in various modes of deceleration and high-explosive action of the fuse. At the same time, all the UOF12 ammunition worked normally, which indicates their compliance with the declared technical characteristics.


The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine noted that the army had a shortage of these ammunition due to the increased frequency of fires in military warehouses. Therefore, the defense department announced a tender for the purchase of shells for the Rapier cannons. It was won by Czech Defense Systems as, which offered a batch of repaired ammunition. Another participant in the tender was a company that had new shells, the cost of which was 30 percent higher.

This contract was criticized by the Rada deputies, who stated that they bought low-quality shells for the Armed Forces at an inflated price. The Ukrainian Defense Ministry denied this statement.

    Someone put the Czechs on their paws in order to undermine the warehouses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Bulgarian seller with weapons in the Czech Republic and push through their contract ... in which case everything can be shoved into the intrigues of Petrov and Boshirov.
    Well-known trick for crooks.

      Against this background, the data of 2014 look interesting, according to which 4 MT-12R guns (almost all of the weapons of this modification available in the Armed Forces of Ukraine) with Ruta radar sights were thrown by scattered crews in the Georgievka area and got to us.

      MT-12R

        Then it turns out that the Czechs also planted the guns !? After all, if there were few of them, and even their loss, then what is the point of announcing a tender and purchasing shells? Inappropriate use of funds. Yes, the Czechs are losing something in relations with Russia!

            Where does the infa about "all the tools" come from? Above is a comment from Insurgent, in which it is written in black and white about 4 (four). And below is an explanation about the tools in the basic configuration, of which the Square has a lot. smile

          The Insurgent was talking about a modification with radar sights. MT-12R. The APU has a lot of conventional "Rapier" ... The guns are smooth-bore, the wear of the barrel bore during firing is less. This is a problem with rifled barrels in the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Saw ukropskie "Acats" after repair WITHOUT muzzle brakes. Which means shooting with "half" charges ... Unfortunately, the lethality of shells is not reduced because of this, only the range.

              These are the "Brass knuckles"? No idea request But I suppose that if they didn’t cope with “Ruta”, then the same fate awaits “Brass knuckles”.
              Moreover, if "Ruta" is a "gun-sight" complex, then "Brass knuckles" is a much more complicated system - "gun-sight-shot".

    The main role of 100 mm for the MT-12 Rapier cannon is the ANTI-TANK reserve of a motorized infantry brigade or division. Those. destruction of enemy tanks that have broken through to a depth of 3 km with pre-prepared lines (i.e. before the enemy appears). High-explosive fragmentation shells are needed for self-defense against infantry and against lightly armored vehicles. If the Czechs delivered new sub-caliber or shaped-charge projectiles, it would be understandable and logical. Obviously, due to the lack of artillery in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the MT-12 will be attracted to solve problems from closed firing positions. Based on the experience of the civil war in the Chechen Republic in 1999-2000. this is the case, but the MT-12 cannon is not mobile enough and, if the enemy has serious counter-battery warfare, it is a disposable weapon.

    average, maximum and initial speed.

    From the average, it is clear - the range of the shot is divided by the time of flight of the projectile, but the initial velocity is equal to the maximum, unless an active-rocket projectile is used. Does Rapier use active-jet?

                Weight is a controlled parameter during acceptance. The quality of the powder affects the trajectory much more strongly.

                Another thing is that for an anti-tank gun, which, in general, normally only fires with direct fire, the tables are very conditional and it is not long to take aim.
