Kalashnikov is power!

41
A young researcher and author of the channel on YouTube set up a curious experiment with a Kalashnikov assault rifle, surprising even himself with the results. The young man, who introduced himself as Dustin, placed the machine gun in an aquarium full of water, and fired one shot, wanting to make sure that the liquid slowed down the work of the famous weapons. It turned out that quite the opposite.


For the experience, Dustin and his assistant needed papin's automatic machine, video cameras, a rather large aquarium and some time to make a special mount for the AK-47. Immediately before the experiment, Dustin tells viewers about the structure of the machine gun and how the AK-47 is recharging after the shot.

The author of the experience says that the speed of reloading the machine depends on the speed of movement of the shutter. And to make it easier to follow the shutter, Dustin hangs on it a white cap and removes the process on a high-speed camera.

Dustin was sure that the water would interfere with the operation of the machine: he had no doubt that the Kalashnikov would fire, but he believed that the reload speed would certainly interfere with the water. What was his surprise when it turned out that actually sending the cartridge to the chamber in the water takes place even faster than on land, because H2O does not need to be compressed.

Note that the "water procedures" did not disable the AK-47: as soon as the bullet smashed the aquarium, watering the experimenter with water, Dustin fired again to make sure that the father's machine was intact.

    This has long been verified.
    In addition to the underwater APS, there is already an "amphibious ASM-DT" Sea Lion "
    ASM-DT is an experimental machine created at the Tula Design and Engineering Institute of Engineering on the basis of APS. A distinctive feature of the machine is its ability to shoot both in normal conditions and with special ammunition under water.
    For experience, Dustin and his assistant needed a daddy machine
    And dad will not find grief for this? All the same, not a toy

    In the United States, the population has a very large number of rifled-automatic weapons on hand, and a good part of these weapons was produced or was created (subsequently produced in other countries) in Russia (the USSR) and many people respect the AK family and have it on free sale.

    In general, you can shoot from any machine under water and in water, the whole question is in the depth of immersion and lethality of the shot.
    If anyone is interested, look at the 38th series of shock force, there they scoffed at AK better)

    Good morning everybody! About AK so much is said that there is nothing to add. I would like to draw attention to this. After watching this video, for example, I first drew attention to the following. Look: how many useful skills this still very young man has !. You can only envy. And with what desire and ingenuity he set up this experiment! You can talk a lot about Americans, but you can only envy the way they can instill a love of technology in their children.

    This effect is true for any weapon using gas exhaust. The point is not in the genius of AK, but in the properties of water, in its incompressibility. Those. when we shoot in the air, for the powder gases to act on the gas piston, it is necessary to go from the holes in the barrel to the piston through the gas tube. When we shoot in water, there is water in the gas tube and when a shot occurs, the gases expanding and press on the water, which acts on the piston, and therefore the shutter moves faster. This can lead to the destruction of weapons. Yes, and there is no point in shooting under water, the bullet quickly loses energy and becomes safe by the mean meter.

      Half a meter is unlikely. After 5 meters I will believe. Well, in an emergency and under water, you’ll have to shoot, for example, at sea, when a shark wants to try you for a tooth. In this case, you will not think about the safety of the barrel and the bolt group. belay

        Due to the high density of water (relative to air, of course), the bullet begins to tumble and behaves like an ass moving forward in the wound canal, so it quickly loses energy.

    Check out what happens to the M4 after the water. There are doubts that the M4 was "ripped" on purpose, since the tester shoots from the M4 in a protective helmet (and in Russian O_o), and from the HK 416 he shoots without a helmet.

    MOSCOW, June 26 - RIA Novosti. The state of health of 93-year-old designer Mikhail Kalashnikov is improving every day, his secretary-assistant Sergei Nosachev told RIA Novosti on Wednesday. May God grant him health. AK - a machine gun with a Russian "soul", and therefore does not go crazy. Looks like there are still doubts in the West about the strength of our weapons, let them not hesitate - Made in Russia.

    I posted this news as an illustration of the capabilities and reliability of the weapon. Not all automatic weapons will shoot at all under water. In any case, there are strong doubts about the M16. Most likely, it will jam and break, if not the barrel, then the gas vent mechanism. Primarily due to the "too precise" fit of the moving parts. The water medium, as practically incompressible, transfers all shock loads instantly and there will be nothing to damp them. The genius of Kalashnikov is precisely in the fact that he was originally made "slack" - this, of course, somewhat reduces the accuracy, but makes the weapon practically immune to external influences.
    By the way, those who believe that in the water a bullet will lose its lethal force almost half a meter later are very mistaken ... It's just that a standard bullet will quickly lose stability on its trajectory and, accordingly, it will be impossible to hit ... but the kinetic energy will not go anywhere. That is why, in the same APS, "feathered bullets-arrows" are used - but unfortunately they do not work well in the air. Now a two-medium machine has been created in which, by simply replacing the store, you can switch from underwater to aerial shooting.

    Nothing of the kind, we shoot ammunition for a bullet casing. They shoot at a test station at a 200-liter barrel of water. The height of the barrel is slightly higher than a person's waist. They shoot almost point-blank, but there are not even dents on the bottom of the barrel. Cartridges for AK, PM, TT, "Nagant" ... Just need to wear a spray apron a lot.

      In this case, the main quenching occurs at the boundary of the media and the bullet somersaults even faster. And since they shoot very close to the water, she still does not have time to become stable. if the water extinguished the bullet so that for a meter it stopped the bullet with AK, this would greatly facilitate the life of underwater saboteurs. I dived two meters and you can’t get any of the small arms ... But to put it mildly, it’s not so.
      At the dawn of my lieutenant youth, I served in Ochakovo and spoke closely with colleagues from Maysky Island ... They would greatly be surprised at your conclusions. wink

    These are not conclusions, but real events. They shot cartridges, poured out water, handed over the bullets to the resolvers. And the bullets are whole, and neither the bottom of the barrel, nor the walls are broken, and this is a fact. But your words about the boundary of the media and somersault of the bullet is a pure theory.
