18



At the MILIPOL 2013 exhibition, Beretta showed the Beretta ARX-160 Coyote assault rifle, created as part of the Soldier of the Future program (Italian Soldato Futuro). The ARX-160 is an element of a promising Italian infantry equipment complex, which also includes an electron-optical sight and a new 40-mm sub-barrel grenade launcher GLX 160. The sighting system has day, night and ordinary optical channels, a laser rangefinder and a ballistic computer for a grenade launcher.

    Well, heaped it up ... Beautiful and impressive, it should inspire fear in the aggressor, at the training ground it's probably something, it's nice to see how this wound thing behaves in our mud in snow and frost. The centaur, as they say, could not do anything, a southern creature, what can you do ...
    How many of them are so promising, and how many are leaving for the troops? In one they are right, the more such developments, the more really useful new products will go into the army.
    PS Until I see TTX about the rifle itself, nothing can be said.

      I did not hold a new weapon - in plastic with 97g in my hands, and even more so I did not use it, but recently on one English site about weapons I read the words of some 60-year-old SAS veteran that "... I would have plastic weapons anywhere I didn't take it with me ... ".
      The point is the conservatism inherent in man.

      Similar opinion with you. Sipping it on a rope for half an hour in the sand, and then see if this beautiful miracle would even function.

    There is no article as such ... Only a photo. Bribes in the weapon good quality plastic (like a good brand power tool). They should not be afraid of him. The best pistol in the world (according to experts) Glock-17 also "made of polymers" was tested and proved reliability and reliability in polar latitudes.
    As for combat effectiveness ... alas, there is not even a TTX, and given the fact that this sample is not exactly a weapon but part of a complex, the assessment of this weapon will be correct not only at the shooting range, but in military operations.

      The problem is not the extensive use of plastic. In the production of weapons, Polyamides 66 and 12 are often used with the addition of fiberglass and ceramic micro balls. smash horseradish.


      The weakness of the unit seems to be in sights and additives, it does not look very stable. Some of the rooms turned out and some cables stick out. Not the residents.



      pictured is an Israeli brand. plastic is the same but the choice of additives leans on durability

        That DBAL-I2, which stands on a rifle - with durability, everything is in order. Only under water with it you can dive for 20m. And in order to break down Magpul mechanical sights, you have to fool more than standard army use.

    Is there any information about the tests and most importantly, what are the reviews of the special forces themselves?
    I wonder if the sight goes astray after very intense shooting? in some samples, which have plastic from top to bottom, for example, of the same G36, the sight goes astray when overheated. although Italians seem to have slightly strengthened the place where the strap was fastened, but still plastic is plastic.

    Do not hesitate to do it qualitatively. Beretta doesn’t do otherwise. Another question is how widespread in the troops of the world will the novelty turn out.

      How much is? Is it now the Germans are beating their heads ... G-36, 1000 euros, so what? After 2 stores of intense fighting, no where! The Bundeswehr was worth 180 million. That UTG schmurgeweer accepted and now they are racking their brains - it will fix the situation ... So, so far nothing has been checked into battle ...

    until they invented something principally new in hand-held weapons, there is nothing better than the old reliable and balanced Kalash and never will be !!! and strips, optics and other tinsel can be hung on it. Beretta is also not bad, plastic is a lot of strange color, but "-ono" does not sink, but it burns probably cool.

    only it seems to me that soon on the battlefield will batteries be more needed than cartridges? ;)

    By chance you don’t know how good they are: the Swedish version of the FNC (Bofors AK5) and the South African bullpup Galil (a) - Vector? So I want to hope that they are suitable for battle.
