AK-12 come up with in Israel? Galil Ace review

107


The Kalashnikov assault rifle is one of the most famous samples in the world. Not one automatic model was created on its basis. weapons. However, there are no unshakable things - AK in a number of parameters required serious improvement and modernization. Now at the IZHMASH plant they are preparing a new model - AK-12, in the hope of giving a new weapon to the Russian army and returning the MO order, and presenting it to the open market. However, were they late for Izhmash? Meet Galil Ace, an Israeli machine gun in the service of Latin American armies.

AK-12 come up with in Israel? Galil Ace review



Galil Ace was a modernization of the classic Galil machine gun, and a distant descendant of AK. Initially, the company Valmet bought the AK license, creating its own model in the 5.56 caliber version, then the Israelis bought out a sublicense from the Finns and modernized the machine in their style, returning the frezirovanny receiver box (which was such only in early AK models), solving a number of problems with ergonomics ( butt, thumb protector, slide handle), etc. In the classic layout in Galil there was even a bottle opener (it is assumed that it appeared due to a large number of reservists). Galil was perhaps the most sought-after version of AK, and the ergonomic solutions used in it are often used to customize AK and Saiga carbines in the United States.



However, time passed. Galil was replaced at first by the M16 in different versions (“Galil” remained only in the support units, having left the infantry), and then “Tavor”. There was no place for “Galilu” in the IDF. However, the machine was still in demand on the international market. In particular, the Colombians turned to the Israelis, in whose army Galil had been successfully used for a long time. And now, a few years ago, a sample was created that corrected the main shortcomings of its predecessor.
Galil Ace turned out pretty good rifle. What was changed in it?




First, the machine has reduced the weight - its shortened version weighs 2.8 kg. This is achieved by actively using plastics and stamping. The receiver box is milled from steel, so it has high strength and resource. The cover of the receiver is stamped from steel, the neck of the magazine receiver, trigger guard and pistol grip are made of high-strength plastic.
Metal parts have a special anti-corrosion coating. Galil Ace is available in three lengths, under three different types of ammunition: NATO 5.56x45, 7.62x39 M43 and NATO 7.62x51.



Secondly, the details are interchangeable with other automata of the Galil system.

Thirdly, a telescopic butt and Picatinny rail, a convenient shaft for a magazine, a trigger mechanism and a fuse are installed.

Fourth, the slide lag has appeared, the recoil of the weapon has been reduced.

The flame arrester allows you to shoot rifle grenades.



Fifth, the bolt handle is moved to the left side, and the slot is covered with a dust cover that automatically opens when the bolt carrier rolls back and also automatically closes when it arrives in the forward position, reliably protecting the mechanisms of the weapon from dust, dirt and other foreign objects, regardless of fuse position.
The fuse-translator of fire regimes is duplicated on both sides of the weapon and provides firing with single shots and bursts.




The main consumer of Galil ACE is the Colombian army and is manufactured there under an IWI license by the Colombian factory Indumil. But they are not the only ones. The 22 of September at the Armament of the Defense Ministry of Peru Fábrica de Armas y Municiones del Ejército SAC (FAME) opened the assembly line of Israeli machine guns / assault rifles Galil ACE.




The licensed production of Galil ACE 21, 31 / 32 and 52 / 53 automatons for 7,62 × 51 mm, 5,56 × 45 mm and 7,62 × 39 mm ammunition cartridges will be carried out by the Peruvian enterprise in accordance with the agreement signed in the middle of the 2010 year, and the agreement will be signed. Weapon Industries (IWI).




The production capacity of FAME is designed for the release of 2000 machines per month. At the first stage, the Peruvian enterprise will assemble weapons from components supplied by an Israeli company. In the second stage, FAME will begin manufacturing the individual parts. In the future, it is planned to master the production of Galil ACE machines in full.
Previously, FAME employees underwent a short-term technical training course at the IWI plant in Tel Aviv. The army of Peru has adopted a machine gun.



Also, it is supplied to El Salvador, Guatemala and is in service with the special police forces of Mexico. To look at the machine in the Philippines.



According to the newspaper Globes of 2011, Vietnam also views Israeli weapons as a replacement for its outdated designs. Vietnamese marines are already "lit up" with Tavor. However, in addition, the 100 contract of millions of dollars was also reported, which includes the construction of a plant for the production of Galil: its construction, according to the information given in the article, should begin in 2013.
Moreover, a new version of Galil Ace - Galil Ace N is already on sale, with an adapter for the M16 stores. AK-12 should go to the series only in the 2013 year. How to know if Izhmash will be late with his version of the machine? Or maybe already late. In order not to finally lose his reputation and finally not lose positions, Izhmash will have to thoroughly try, and, finally, come up with something new.

        Yes, this weapon is relevant for special forces, where fire training comes first. In the motorized rifle unit. all these bells and whistles on the AK headache platoon commander, broke, lost, broken, stolen The weapon should be simple and reliable, Who in the battle will hold his breath when you press the trigger or shoot in bursts while running, looking into the collimator sight. A real battle is not a shooting range with a studied target setup with trodden paths and firing positions. Go through the obstacle course with him and the gunsmith will be provided with work.

            Not always! It's just that this opinion is formed by the experience of recent wars when armies have to finish off enemy units "driven into the ground" by aircraft, or (like the Israeli army) fight the rebels - which is more like a special operation than a combined arms battle. equals in technical equipment (in conditions when their own and other people's artillery, aviation, and both sides will actively use various means of camouflage (including smoke bombs) - the principle "I see - I shoot, I don't see - I don't shoot" can play a cruel joke, the first place will be the ability of units to fire as many bullets per second per square meter. For example: the battle of the American special forces with the townspeople of Magadisho - despite the overwhelming technical superiority, complete air supremacy, the refusal of the Magodisho militia to use mortars (there were civilians in the buildings captured by the Americans), tough guys with accurate rifles were helpless in front of the deale tants with the ancient AK. The inhabitants of Magadishu simply lit their car tires ...

              You have a pretty poor idea of ​​the operation in Somalia. Fair. And then, when the collimators and optical sights of small multiplicity went to the troops of the US Army.
              To begin with, these two events were separated by 10 years. Well, the difference in the strength of the Somali rebels who entered the city was a ten-student. The Americans had 180 people, the Somalis - 2000 with a thousand hook. Losses - among Americans 18, among Somalis about 700 dead. And this was still considered a poorly conducted operation (since it was really poorly planned and went according to plan).

                Perhaps you are not correctly informed about the reasons for this battle, its course, and the consequences. 1) If you want to do, ask about the behavior of the UN peacekeepers immediately before these events. 2) Find out the number of rangers raids on Magodisho in an attempt to kill Aidid and pay attention to the number of destroyed buildings and killed townspeople (what can you do - the Americans are often mistaken, in the first raid these idiots managed to arrest UN employees instead of Aidid). All this will help you understand what love the townspeople felt for all "peacekeepers" and "liberators". 3) Yes - u There were no collimator rangers, they were at the Delta and the seals (about 50 trunks, + a sniper on helicopters). It was after this operation that the USA began to massively sculpt collimators where they did not hit (hz why, the Americans in that battle were not saved by the accuracy of fire deltas and Pakistanis with armored vehicles and the same AK). 4) You give a figure of 180 fighters, pilots of 19 combat helicopters and a reconnaissance aircraft who participated in the battle, soldiers from the base enter The Pakistanis who went into battle later, with armored vehicles, you don't think of them as people at all, and five disabled helicopters is a trifle not worthy of attention? 5) What you call "Somali rebels" mostly consisted of an unarmed crowd (including women and children) queuing up for the empty barrel. And, again, neither artillery nor mortars were used by the police (not because there was no, but because the gallant American specialists used the tenants of the houses they occupied as a human shield). What is the ratio of losses in general, in this situation?

                It’s smiled. This, you know, with relatives, the Germans would have surely won the war against the USSR if it had been smaller and warmer (Well, the brilliant field marshals did not know that the USSR is a large country and in some places cold. And yes, the plans are brilliant, just nobody I guessed to look at the map and look at the calendar.) Judging by the measures taken after the battle, genius American strategists were prevented by an insufficient number of collimators (almost every third of them were there).
                6) How, in your opinion, would this battle end if any airborne company (with full standard armament) of any of the CIS countries reinforced by the GRU special forces and supported by two dozen MI-8 and MI-24 with the order "Take at any cost" would end up being the enemy of the Americans?

                  The site had a good article on this operation. http://topwar.ru/14208-kak-padali-chernye-yastreby.html and so I remind you "In total, the US military lost 18 people killed; 74 were seriously wounded. Remembering their losses, the Americans somehow forget to honor the memory of those who saved their lives - from the rescue convoy 1 Malaysian tanker was killed, 2 more Pakistani peacekeepers were injured One American - the pilot of the Black Hawk Down, Michael Durant, was captured, from where he was rescued 11 days later in exchange for two captured Somalis. Somalis are unknown, although General Aidid gave the following figures - 315 people killed, 800 wounded. " "and as far as I understand, all the losses of the Samalis were presented as military and how many people suffered from the fact that" Little birds shot 80 cartridges and fired about a hundred unguided rockets. "

              For professional armies, various body kits for weapons are the norm. For Americans, for example, the ratio of supply personnel and soldiers is somewhere between 1 and 3-5; in the Russian Federation and others, the soldiers themselves, on delivery and provision, during the service, fired a pair of horns and then for happiness. What kind of collimators would be out of a grenade launcher?

          Kallimatorny increases the aiming speed by 2-3 times, and the accuracy of fire approximately one and a half times. I used Elbit sights, and it’s not easy to break them. There are dozens of pluses, there are practically no minuses.

          this weapon is relevant to special forces

          If it is only a harness, then it is removable. There are no problems here. Yes, and the machine itself is not bad. The main problem of “Galil Ace” on the market is that the Israeli armed forces themselves have chosen a different model of automatic weapons. Add to this the high cost of Israeli weapons and one can quite reasonably assume that this model does not and will not have any particular commercial success. In any case, in the sun. No wonder its main market is an individual police unit in Latin America ...
          However, if the AK-12 will not be adopted by the Russian Armed Forces, it is likely that he will not be in any special demand. They will trade in small lots, whatever the specific modifications of the AK-12 (such as with balanced automation or 6,5 mm caliber). I admit that with this development, the tuning of previously released AK models will be in much greater demand than the AK-12 itself. Tuning at "Izhmash" is not expensive and quite balanced.

            Not the reliability and dimensions of the M-16 and Galil Ace forced Israel to adopt the TAR-21 in 4 versions. Cost is much higher than the state M-16. Ukraine, during the time of Yushchenko, acquired a license to issue TAR-21 on the Israeli-Ukrainian components model Fort-221. But nothing is clear with fate.

      The author used Galil in the Israeli army.
      Jews bought a sub-license from the Finns, who also bought a license from the USSR and remade the AK in Velmet under 5.56. You would have discovered this if you had carefully read the article. Patents for the base AK have expired, and now there are licenses only for individual nodes. In the Israeli version of such independent nodes a lot.

      AK-12 is also an attempt to introduce such nodes. But they are doing it so slowly that they are several years behind with their implementation, and it looks much worse than Galil even externally. Therefore, I raise the question - is it time to move the rolls, and live not yesterday, but today and tomorrow.

    I doubt that in the photo there are soldiers of the regular units. By all appearances, they are specialists. It’s easier to arm specialists than the whole army. It's all about the cost of the machine. Recently, we often confuse two concepts: war and special operation, albeit a large-scale one. First of all, war is dirt, sand, dust, water, heat, frost, blows to stone and armor, etc. etc. The vaunted Western samples created for sale, international salons and beautiful reports are unlikely to withstand intensive use in real conditions. Even the G-36, which was considered the standard for machine guns, was recommended by experts to be less intense in Afghanistan. Why are there no such complaints for AK?

      In black uniforms - the federal police of Mexico - elite units. Bottom photo - Salvodor police. In the gerbil and black bronchiki - specialists from the detachment for the release of the hostages of the Colombian army.

      But there are quite a few photographs and Colombians from regular parts - there Galil Ace gradually crowds out the old Galil.

      For example, the marines.



      The vaunted western samples withstand, and quite well.

      According to G36 - it is recommended to read the news in the original and reaction - the situation is taken out of context.

                    In my opinion, nowhere is it about Kalash laurels. In this article, I analyze the example of Galil Ase that the AK-12, not yet born, begins the race with a huge lag. I am talking about the inertness of IZHMASH, and, in particular, the inertia of users of this resource. It is important and necessary to be proud of good things. Just do not forget that a veteran is a veteran of any war. not only the Great Patriotic War, but the AK was invented in the late 40s, and that to develop a new model for technology that is 20-30 years behind the times, living a legend will result only in the complete death of the weapons school.

                      But agree that these technologies are some of the most advanced so far. And more reliable than the three-line, PPS, Degtyarev and AK no one.

                        One can and should be proud of their weapons models. But do not forget that the world does not stand still.

                        Zhenya, you’ve already been taken to a completely different steppe, right?
                        If you ask so - yes, I will compare Armata with Merkava 4, at least. Because yes, they are constantly doing this.

                        And Zhenya, doesn’t it seem to you that the history of Israeli wars, especially at first, is just the story when a small group fights against a large one, no? Israel has not just become better armed, for example. He had and has to fight on several fronts at once. And often had to fight with old French and English weapons against the Soviet modern at that time.

                        If you ask for a specific situation - there is a story of Zwicky Gringold, for example - drive into a search. And, about the same situation - 180 Israeli tanks against about 1300 Syrian tanks, the very beginning of the Doomsday War. I highly recommend reading, since you have suffered in this jungle.

                        And honestly - if you ask a question, then do not do it in a provocative manner

                        I had several friends who fought in Chechnya, both grandfathers were officers. And I believe that you can be a patriot without losing your mind, but better knowing the story (not only your own, but also someone else's), proud of the past, but living in the present and looking to the future.

      from the G-36 it is recommended to shoot with a cutoff of 3 rounds, because the plastic forend melts. But believe me, this is the best shooting mode that can only be at distances farther than "point blank".

As I know on the new Kalash there is an Israeli butt. Well, the most important thing is that the mech.chast worked properly. Or does the author want to say that we are gradually losing the small arms market? I doubt how many "wild boars" were purchased from us.

        It is alleged that the Ak-103 is produced under license in another country. And Azerbaijan bought a license for the Ak and issues it with an Israeli body kit called khazri.

      What to ask about the history of the creation of Galilia is known After the Doomsday war, when your ,, praised ,, Amerov’s M16 got wedged in the sand (desert)., And AK continued to shoot in the sand. Israel ,, did not give a damn, began to copy automatics against the USA AK at its technological level. By the way continues to upgrade constantly.

        October 14 2012
        M16 was not fought in the Doomsday War. They fought machine guns FN and PP Uzi. Deliveries of M16 were already retroactively.
        In addition, the project was presented in 1969, that is, when they did not know about any M16 in Israel.
        Galil, with all its advantages, was nevertheless displaced by M16. But production - also for a number of reasons - has been preserved.

        A lot of time has passed since the war where "amerovskie M16s were wedged in the sands", but the IDF for some reason did not switch to Galilas. Galil is primarily a product for export. Jews are quite satisfied with modern versions of m16 / m4 and new Tavors ...

          M16 was not in active combat during the Doomsday War.
          In 1982, combat units were actively used by Galili, somewhere for 10 years, then Galili left the infantry to tankmen, artillerymen and rear units, until they were driven out in the mid-2000s by the final entry into service of Tavor.

    Two conclusions from the article.
    1. It is necessary to carefully monitor the licenses and demand a ban on illegal copying. especially for future developments.
    2. The principle until thunder strikes still taxis. It was necessary to modernize Kalashnikov or create a new one 10 years ago. Another thing is that then all this did not care.

    Opinion. A terrible amount of body kits on some samples looks incomprehensible. How will a soldier carry this all to the battlefield? Or made for specialists?

      October 14 2012
      Firstly, licenses are valid for a limited time. The patent for the basic AK was not normally filed, and, in any case, has long expired. Now all the nodes are being patented - you can find a patent, for example, the nodes of the AK hundredth series - are on the network.

      The Israelis officially bought their license through Velmet (Finnish), which also purchased a license from the USSR and made its version of AK under cartridge 5.56.

      As for body kits - this is a normal trend of our time. Collimators, small optical sights, tactical handles and lights are all very useful features

    What difference does it make who and when bought the license or copied something. The Chinese, for example, use the entire arsenal (from purchase to copy) and are not particularly burdened by the priority problem.

    And further. The Israelis have the main problem in terms of small arms to have such weapons that are convenient to use primarily in the narrow streets of Arab settlements, i.e. it should be light and compact, yet powerful enough and "intact" when shooting at long distances. And they already have this weapon and is not at all Galil. It is called "Tavor" (TAR-21) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CBkpznyv65k.
    Those. the Israelis create their weapons primarily for the theater of operations on which they have to fight. And this theater is very specific. Frost and slush are not observed there, but there is enough sand, dust and high temperatures. Yes, and women who are more comfortable in the Israeli army to carry light and compact machine guns on themselves, rather than bulky Galilas or M16.
    In Russia, the range of possible combat use of small arms is much wider, and therefore the design must correspond to this range. In this regard, the modernization of the existing AK models is what is needed at this stage, given the current state of the military-industrial complex and its production capabilities. And when modernizing AK, production does not need to be put on its head, and the main units have been tested for a long time, and the range of modern "poultices" is much larger. And foreign clientele honors AK. After all, it's one thing to sell something that has been tested for decades, and quite another to sell a pig in a poke

      Slush - 5 months of the year rains heavy rains. There are frost points. In addition, Israel supplies 80% of its defense industry abroad. And this means that all the basic criteria are met both for low and high temperatures, etc.

          Yeah. That does not preclude the legitimate acquisition of a license and the development of an original design at the Valmet ball, which is a clone of AK, which, in principle, no one forgets.

          In this case, I consider Galil Ase and AK-12 - namely them - as occupying approximately the same market niche. However, the AK-12 begins to lose this niche, for a number of reasons, before it even goes into production. And I compare not even the machines themselves so much - in principle, they are similar, but the approach and principles of work of developers and manufacturers.

    A strange trend on the site recently. When an article appears about the successes, even of the dubious ones, of the Russian military-industrial complex, 90% of comments are a joyful calf screech. At the same time, articles about at least some successes of foreign weapons cause stuffing of negativity. There is less and less site about armament and army and more and more forum of cheers, most of which do not even try to communicate on the merits.

    An article about a possible competitor to the AK-12, because you can start a discussion about the advantages and disadvantages.

      Rumata! Yes, the patriots of Russia are sitting on the site, yes, and we are very happy to accept new weapons after almost a 20-year break! You do not understand this, especially since you, and others like you, are sitting here, and they are trying to spoil everything, with your calf squeal! And yet, we do not belong to cheers-patriots, it's just a shame for the power! A strange trend is happening on the site, it was occupied by the Zionists, and they are imposing their opinions, but not just imposing them, but they have organized a dictatorship !!!!

        Yes, rejoice as much as you like, your right. There is a difference between joy and pride for their country, and hurray-patriotism, when "All of them" is humorous, "all ours" - has no analogues in the galaxy. Previously, weapons were discussed here, argued, even got personal, but from the comments one could almost always learn something new and interesting, now it has turned into an endless shit.

        When, 3 hours after the article about Iran and Israel appeared, dozens of videos and comments about the ritual Jewish sacrifices of Slavic children, "goyim" and the world conspiracies of the Illuminati Jews, the enslavement of Russia by the NATO and US armies, appear in the comments, it becomes disgusting and offensive ...

            For the site. Many have disappeared over the past 3-4 months, but still there are enough interesting personalities who really understand many areas related to weapons and the army, whose comments are interesting to read. These interesting comments are drowning in a stream of meaningless flood from a bunch of useless trolls and re-reading hundreds of messages of continuous negative in order to find something interesting, more and more difficult ...

    I don’t understand, why did you pounce on Pupyrchaty? The man touched on a number of technical issues regarding two rifles. No advertising here can be seen. And again, prospects were considered in the foreign market. You’re starting, sorry, to roll a barrel on a person.
    And the last paragraph of the article relates more to the foreign market. If not, then the author missed one point - there is inertia, not of Izhmash, but of a manual that knows about a bunch of weapons in warehouses, which was already mentioned here.

    Normal machine. If the field proved to be good, generally excellent. And our AK-74 and others like them in fat and at state reserve warehouses. And then they still say PPS and PPSh lie .... Sights and body kit are needed, otherwise our soldiers as savages are already against the backdrop of foreigners.

    The Kalashnikov assault rifle is a Kalashnikov assault rifle, and the Galil carbine is the Galil carbine, our problem is that in the West and the "other Enemies" minor innovations (devices for attaching "body kits", ergonomics improvements) are introduced very quickly and produced in sufficient quantity and quality.

    "Was the AK-12 invented in Israel?"
    "Who knows if Izhmash will be late with its version of the machine? Or maybe already late."
    No, no, this is never a sketch.

    "Izhmash will have to try hard, and maybe finally come up with something new."
    Well you understood, if "IZHMASH" does not surprise the author of the article, it can blame itself. wassat

    Hello gentlemen, comrades and friends !!!
    Site Administrator Military Review Vadim Smirnov tried to stop the activities of active forum participants.
    Let’s name (or rather, we’ll determine who they are) of course Aleksey (spender) Omar (Ataturk), (Apollon) and (Camilla). What won the forum but nothing actually.
    No, that past enthusiasm. Spark, there is no srach that was. There isn’t that war that was on the forum and which was the locomotive of all discussions. If you were current beginners would come to the forum three months, four months ago you would be witnesses furious fights. impudent attacks and fierce battles. Disputes sometimes reached frenzy. It seemed that now indeed blood will shed. Here it was real, virtual life on a forum.
    Well now, hello Petya, goodbye Vasya, so-so, all the way, I don’t see the point, maybe .............................. etc. etc.
    It was a forum, even after fierce skirmishes, sometimes furious enemies let out mutual epithets of politeness to each other. Some words of the Ataturk addressed to the neutral “About the light of my eyes”, mutual appeals of Omarushka and David, what are they standing for? And where is David, where are the other people of Armenian nationality. Snickley and foolishly went home. And what are the Meta demotivators. I honestly sometimes studied at his (honestly, at first I even had no idea what it was) demotivators. The SCHOOL was good.
    Putting my hand on my heart, I admit that without Oleg 0705, I’m also bored, there’s no war to the bitter end. Oh, what was the war with ball bearings.
    What did the admin site Smirnov. "Simple and intelligible" ALL BASTA !!! I blocked it, oxygen to all, banning respected people on the site.
    It's boring. Sometimes I read it, just darkness. Not fun, not laughter, not even anger and enmity. And what was the RZHACHKA, you won’t believe ?!
    Lost, much lost Forum. Honestly, I don’t even know if the forum will return to its former greatness. Time works AGAINST !!! Every day is dear, Vadim, every day.
    Beat dear people !!!

    AK is AK! It is recognized all over the world! He participated in all wars and conflicts of the second half of the twentieth century. Since its inception, it has already become a legend, a symbol of small arms. AK-12 is a completely reasonable development, Mikhail Kalashnikov himself acknowledged this. So it’s impossible to be late here, AK will always be out of any competition, the main thing is to bring 12 to mind.

    I constantly hear that a soldier can break a super duper weapon. I asked myself a question and answered it myself. Yes maybe. why? Yes, at least because the service in our army is very short. to teach a soldier professional proficiency in weapons entrusted to him, simply not enough time. the pros cherish their weapons and cherish, because, this is his working tool and more than once saved his life. for a conscript soldier, an assault rifle is more a burden than a tool. from this and such an attitude. I repeat, any weapon in the hands of a professional is deadly. even without a body kit. even outdated. Example: when he served in the Soviet army, we had a few trilinear carbines with us. one of the soldiers once asked the officer a question, they say, why do we have this junk lying around? on which, the commander staged demonstrative firing and hand-to-hand combat. I must say right away that the officer, warrant officer Levanovsky, unfortunately I do not remember the name, was sent to our unit to serve until retirement after a serious injury. he knew his job perfectly. not only that, he just scattered the whole squad in hand-to-hand combat, he struck all the messes before everyone else and even more clearly than anyone else. a detachment from machine guns))). only after, in the Lenin room, to the phrase of one of the soldiers that chemists need no such agility, he explained that everyone needs such agility. the soldier should be able to fight with what is in his hands ... .and slammed the opponent outfit out of turn).
    today are completely different times. for a year, it is simply impossible to learn a soldier. especially if he himself does not strive.
    I apologize for my flood off topic)))
