In Ukraine, the Molot mortar was decided to be modified for NATO mines

46

The fate of the Molot mortar is one of the most painful topics for the Ukrainian defense industry. Currently, almost 300 mortars are operated in units and subdivisions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. As noted by the Ukrainian military, its own story operation of this mortar.

However, to talk about the perfection of this "independent" weapons not necessary. Even the representatives of the Ukrainian defense industry themselves admit that accidents, including tragic ones, constantly happened with mortars. So, according to the materials of the Verkhovna Rada, as of the fall of 2018 alone, there were 13 cases of rupture of these mortars. The "Hammer" exploded several times at positions, and this circumstance is unlikely to indicate the effectiveness of the Ukrainian defense industry.



However, the organization "Mayak-Perspektiva" continues to work on improving these weapons. Now the main task is to adapt the mortar for firing mines produced by NATO countries. Despite the fact that the caliber of Soviet and NATO mines is the same, the pressure indicators during a shot in the western ones are much higher, and it is this difference that the designers want to neutralize.

The designers claim that the mortar will receive a number of new elements, including a new type of bore coating, in line with the latest Western trends. This will ensure greater survivability of the mortar and improve its operational characteristics, including the passage of the mine through the canal.

But the main task, of course, remains the prevention of numerous tragic accidents during mortar shooting, which by no means paint the modern Ukrainian defense industry.

    We don't have enough of our own! Either ammunition, or victims ...
    And each manufacturer has its own Ukrainian language! The dictionary contains the word "speed", but it was necessary to write "Intensity of robots" (transl. "Intensity of work"). Hard workers their mother!

        Yes, I don’t cling, just in our family, the second native language is Ukrainian (Poltava dialect) and I know how visiting linguists-specialists from Canada and Westerners began to distort it in all textbooks and dictionaries, since the beginning of the 90s.

      I imagined this picture - in a "high-tech mortar assembly workshop" (metal hangar with traces of rust on the walls) a Ukrainian "high-quality assembly specialist" ( a peasant with a floor-length Cossack mustache, a horse-drawn man, in shabby trousers with a shiny back and a dirty embroidered shirt), opens the "NATO ammunition diagram and begins to set up the CNC machine" (Pomusoliv from all sides a piece of paper with incomprehensible drawings, takes a huge file and begins to modify the mortar with it, periodically distracted to wave a glass of moonshine and eat it with a piece of bacon for labor inspiration!) laughing

    The effectiveness of the Ukrainian mortar is determined not by the number and rate of fire, but by the number of self-explosions.
    Mortar "Hammer", mortars - "hammers". The name of the mortar was "communed" from the communist symbol "Hammer and Sickle".
    Here is the "Hammer" and hammers the "hammers" with all the communist consciousness.

    If I'm not mistaken, the calibers of the mortars of the Armed Forces of Russia and the NATO countries are different, we have 82 mm, the NATO members have 81,7 mm, it is believed that Stalin had a hand in choosing the caliber of our mortar in 1938, in my opinion, citing the fact that our mortar can shoot mines smaller by 0.3 mm of our caliber, and the enemy cannot use our mines, due to their larger diameter

    Now, if anything happens during the shooting, it will happen according to NATO standards. And for a country crawling on its knees to NATO, more is not needed.
    Judging by the reaction to the comments above, the "friends" on the other side of the site have only increased. They feel at home - they can write whatever they want, and more often silently, puffing into a rag, diligently minus those who deservedly criticize what is happening in Ukraine.

    This is the most important direction, it is necessary to experiment more, to increase the charge, to organize competitions on the speed of throwing mines into the mortar, to try to shoot without a plate, and so on ...
    Otherwise it will be boring and the warriors will get drunk and get sick.
    And so - they will die healthy and strong!

    Indeed, from the moment the Hammer mortar was handed over to the APU, there were many problems with it, the Ukrainian military died. This year the mortar was improved. There are no deaths of soldiers. Now only the LPR and DPR militias are dying. 120mm mine effectively breaks fortifications.
