"Nepryadva" from the late USSR: double-barreled anti-sabotage grenade launcher DP-64


The Soviet Union was actually living out its last months, not even years, of its life, and the work of the engineering and design school in the late 1980s did not stop literally for a minute. It did not stop in the field of creating weapons and ammunition for them.

By 1989, the Cold War was actually left behind, and the highest figures in the state had already launched a countdown for the USSR, but in the field of the defense industry they understood that it was impossible to stop their work. They also understood that sooner or later their innovations and developments, as they say, will come to fruition.

Among the brainchildren of the late Soviet military industry is Nepryadva. This is an anti-sabotage double-barreled grenade launcher (DP-64) with a vertical arrangement of trunks. A unique development of Soviet gunsmiths, which was adopted by the Navy of the Soviet Union a year before the country ceased to exist.

The main use of the DP-64 "Nepryadva" is to defeat naval saboteurs (underwater swimmers), for example, trying to attack a warship. The grenade launcher can be used by maritime border units to counter the violation of state borders, to eliminate enemy groups on the approaches to the borders from the sea.

At the same time, the Nepryadva can be used for firing from both open and closed positions.

    The loading is somehow unconvincing, the pimpochki are somehow folding. Is he really unique?

      The designer of the grenade launcher does not have the task of giving the grenade an initial bullet speed, a limited pressure of powder gases is necessary solely for throwing at a given distance

        How does muzzle speed compare to reload?

    Well, "Nepryadva" is not alone in the family of anti-sabotage guns! She also has "brothers" DP-65 and DP-61!

    .10-barrel 55-mm DP-65 with a rocket-propelled grenade!

    DP-61 "Duel"!
    And their father is MRG-1!

    What range, automatic ammo reloading.. Just throwing gas at him right now doesn't seem good to me. I couldn't find more details. But anyway, it's a smart gun. am
