Manual machine gun FN MINIMI 5,56 mm Mk3

45



At the MILIPOL 2013 exhibition, FN Herstal introduced the FN Minimi 5,56 mm Mk3 light machine gun.

As the site marks small weapon - Weapons of infantry, in the new version of the well-known machine gun, the changes affected mainly ergonomics and greater unification of components and parts. These changes are a response to requests from servicemen who directly use the Minimi machine gun.

“The end-user requirements for the Minimi light machine gun have evolved over the past 10-15 years, and they have been the desire for a wider use of various accessories, compatibility with soldiers' equipment and changes in tactics,” the company said in a press release.

Since the new changes represent the installation on the machine gun of various elements and units, it is possible to carry out modernization of the machine guns already in the troops. This will save a lot of money, because there is no need to buy a new version of the Minimi machine gun, and only the purchase of individual elements is required.

Minimi Mk3 has a 5-and positional retractable adjustable butt, which allows you to take into account all the anatomical features of the military, including in body armor and equipment. The 4's positioning butt scoop is also adjustable. The butt is also equipped with a shoulder clasp and a hydraulic buffer, which makes shooting a machine gun more manageable, and carrying it more convenient.

Completely redesigned forearm, which is now integrated with quick-set bipods. Handguard received Picatinny rail on the sides and bottom. At the request of end users, the forearm can be equipped with a heat shield.

The cocking handle has been enlarged, which makes it convenient to operate both left-handed and right-handed, and has a safety latch that prevents the ingress of dirt.

There are major changes. The Mk3 uses a different barrel retainer, which makes it possible to close the cartridge cover without reinstalling the barrel (probably meaning that the barrels can be changed without having to open the cartridge cover). The ammunition supply tray has also undergone changes; as a result, the machine gun is easy to charge with one hand.

      Of course, I apologize, but this exhibition was held from 19 to 22 on November 2013.
      And on December 6, an article appeared in Voennoye Obozreniye.
      "FN presented an updated version of the MINIMI machine gun"

      Unfortunately, none of the authors of the articles indicated that FN Minimi is produced in several versions:

      FN MINIMI 5.56 Mk3 Standard
      Long barrel (465 mm), hard butt



      FN MINIMI 5.56 Mk3 Para
      Short barrel (349 mm), another shape arrester, retractable stock



      FN MINIMI 5.56 Mk3 Tactical SB
      Short barrel, other shape arrester, 5 and positional adjustable stock



      FN MINIMI 5.56 Mk3 Tactical LB
      Long barrel, 5 and positional adjustable stock

    It is interesting when our manufacturers and customers represented by the Moscow Region will take into account the wishes of the military, and not pretend that they better know what is needed and what is not ...

      In the west, the trade in army weapons is not tied to a state corporation like our Rosoboronexport, and the manufacturer can make appropriate changes to the weapon at the request of users. Just as he was a Minimi guan, he remained so, in spite of all his improvements. The PKK, even if it is a derivative of AK, is still much more reliable and better. Many people still believe that the lack of ribbon supply is a minus, but I can assure you that it is not!

        Store food is more convenient for a light machine gun, the calculation of which consists of 1 people (it is more convenient to carry spare stores), belt food is for single machine guns (company and battalion units), where the machine gunner has an assistant. Minimi is used as a light machine gun.

          What? What does it mean our "Negev" is a company machine gun? His niche is not a squad / platoon. The company / battalion is the MAG. And the difference is not only in the caliber of the Negev 7.62, but in terms of power, they are completely different machines. And your PKK. It's not a machine gun at all.

              Not really, I just caught the time when in our unit Minimi was replaced by the Negev, much more convenient and more accurate, the Minimi is "jumping" strongly, and the Negev can cut a target from the bipod like an autogenous gun, and the recoil from the hands is less, the only jamb - in the first models, the dust protection fuse tightly wedged, no cleaning helped - we drove it with a stone on the "machine" and left it that way, at the end of my military service they just started taking them for revision, then they fixed everything, and he is picky about the quality of the ammunition , the Georgians "chewed" Turkish cartridges, and our cartridges go with a bang, except for the defective capsule on the cartridge - I don’t remember failures in my life.

          The warp of the cartridge and the transverse rupture of cartridges is a disease of this device from birth. By the way, he has not yet been defeated. So for Minimi, this is not probability, but ordinary.

          Do not see. A hand-held machine gun with a tape feed will weigh too much, it is inconvenient to carry a supply of cartridges with you, the box takes up too much space. If you add the assistant machine gunner to the calculation, it is better to use a more powerful RMB (or PKP). Here you can increase the capacity of RPK-74 stores, at least up to 60 rounds. You can make the barrel heavier so that it overheats less.

            Smack nonsense. Qualitatively flog. Don't you feel sorry for her? He will die after all.

            A modern machine gun on the 5.56 weighs about 6-7 kg. The weight of RPK stores is leaving somewhere, I didn’t understand something? Or has a removable barrel appeared? Did the problems of drum shops or stores, in principle, when firing machine guns, have disappeared? And much, much more that real users of such machines will tell you. PKK strongly where are left? What do you think, for what reason?

              RPK-74 weighs 5 pounds. From a lighter weapon it is more convenient to shoot, it is more convenient to move with it. The difference in the mass of weapons pays for the difference in the mass of stores. The store can be carried in a pouch or pocket, and a box with a ribbon cannot be crammed anywhere. Changing the store is much faster than replacing the tape.

                You, you see, have just encountered tape machine guns in the movies? There are special unloadings for machine gunners if you are not in the know.
                Did you change the tape? And given the fact that the tape has 150 rounds, and in stores 45? And given the fact that modern 5.56 machine guns have two types of power and can be supplied both from stores and tapes? Did you take into account the less reliable stores?

            From this it follows that we need to add a machine gunner's assistant to the calculation, for example, like Anka in "Chapaev" laughing

          Eugene, if you run around and clean it, maybe, but there is no better cleaner than "Bumblebee". But not in some case for a normal war. The density of fire from it is not higher than from the same PKK. If it was really required, it would have been made and developed back in Soviet times. From my own experience, I will say that this is almost 6 years of continuous war, not needed. But I would add another PC to the department.

            In Soviet times, a lot of things were not done - for example, the ergonomics of the AK in 1974 were not fixed. Just by virtue of energy. It is not necessary to reduce everything to the Soviet time, it has passed.

            Nothing replaces the presence of PKM - the right machine gun that will live for a long time. Nevertheless, there is a need for an 5.45 machine gun - if only because its ammunition will be easier to weigh, the machine gun itself will be lighter, more compact, and in experience the western counterparts are more than effective at a distance from 500 to 1000 meters.

                Because this is not a machine gun, but a machine gun. The fact that it is of the same caliber as a submachine gun does not make it so. Or do you and PKM because of the fact that there is AKM will be considered an automatic machine? Or do you think 5.45 is the "wrong" caliber or low destructive power?

                The AK-74 has terrible modern ergonomics, most of which could be resolved back in the 70s. And they did not correct it, not because it was not necessary, but because of energy. And the fact that you will fight only with him, does not speak about the qualities of the machine, but only about your conservatism and the strength of your habit - you did not fight with anything else. All other things being equal, I’ll most likely choose the M4 - as a light, reliable and familiar rifle. But this does not mean that no samples are better

                    The AK-74 does not even have a dovetail, sights can only be set in (about) factory conditions - this is why Izhmash scammers had to give birth kov nightly options. AK-74M is slightly better due to folding stock; however, the dovetail (on which nothing can be put normally) instead of human picatinny trees and traditionally poor quality of the same Izhmash scammers think about replacing this piece with something more decent.

The only difference from the AK-74 in quality, lower barrel life. Dear, you still live in Russia, in a country with your own standards, and picatini and weaver are not yet a decree. If they are accepted by the troops as a standard, then they will appear on weapons.

                        Moreover, I will say that for a good, experienced shooter, all the bells and whistles on the weapon are not required (although desirable). He is quite capable of fulfilling his task and with what he has at the moment. At least give such a slingshot and he will "soak" the enemy out of it, at any time of the year, day or night and in any weather. laughing

                        The stone is simple, reliable and efficient. What could be simpler than him? Convenience of weapons and compliance with modern requirements - from lukvoy? Then AK would not be needed - PPSh was quite convenient. And why PPSh - the mosquito is simple, reliable and effective. DON'T NEED TO PREVENT DISADVANTAGES FOR ADVANTAGES.

                        Efficiency of these weapons against really trained units seen? I’ll say that when we clashed, three by three from equal distance, and with the enemy who opened fire first, it turned out 3: 0

                        Convenience ceteris paribus gives a win in fractions of a second. These fractions of a second save a life. That's all

                        Someone canceled shooting training? By the way, in the Russian army a single modern shooting technology has not yet been developed.

                  On a par - no. Not much inferior in defeat - yes. The experience of using machine guns is also quite sufficient for me, and quite frequent - in a combat situation. And since when is 5.45 or 5.56 a low-caliber? Did I miss something? Or did the difference in numbers from 7.62 make him small-caliber?
                  And this is not trolling. Are you taking the discussion for trolling?

                    You do not like the expression small-caliber? Can be changed to low-pulse. Just do not change anything. All ammunition up to 6 mm., Inclusively, it is customary to describe as small-caliber. I call trolling an attempt to give out wishful thinking.

For you, probably a 3-4 hour battle with a tactically competent enemy is unrealistic, but we have this usual thing and the ammunition was not always enough, and this is ten stores.

                      Only you forgot that the energy of low-momentum! cartridges 2 times lower than those of the same 7.62x54 or 7.62x51 NATO. And shoot further than 600 meters, only spend ammunition. It’s funny to watch when fighters with Minimi are sitting at the block post and practically open fire from 800 meters from the PC, and no one can do anything until the armored personnel carrier arrives or a jeep with a Mage or Browning. And another personal observation, 5.56 are stuck in unloading already at 700 meters.

                      Which of the low-pulse ones? There are several of them, M855A1 is used for machine guns. And standard distances - from 600 to 1000 meters, the benefit of modern calm machine guns are optical devices.

                      The M855A1 was put on hold in August 2009 due to the experimental bismuth-tin alloy core exhibiting undependable ballistics at high temperatures. The US Army has since replaced the bismuth-tin alloy core with one of solid copper eliminating the heat issue. The United States Marine Corps purchased 1.8 million rounds in 2010, with plans to adopt the round to replace the interim MK318 SOST rounds used in Afghanistan when the M855A1 project was delayed.

                      I hope you do not need to translate? For those who are not educated about the cartridge itself: the features of the M855A1 cartridge are new gunpowder with additives that reduce the muzzle flash, and a new bullet with a composite core: bare steel in the bow and bismuth \ zinc-tin alloy in the back.
                      With this design, the steel spout provides a good penetrating effect, and when it gets into the carcass, the bullet is easily destroyed in two parts, increasing the wound effect.

                  Have you had to? The usual layout is 5 stores, right? You are again carried away in some kind of nonsense "here and the stone will shoot, but for everyone else, everything -". I recall something about what kind of firing training my friends in the Russian Airborne Forces went through - in the store for the entire service life, with the counting of cartridges then accountable.

                  By the beginning of the 1970s, Soviet designers realized the promise of intermediate small-caliber cartridges: small-caliber bullethaving a high initial speed, provides high flatness

    Recently, an article on the site flashed by a soldier amerovsky specialist - "Adaptive Kalash". Che did not notice any complaints about the ergonomics of the AK - on the contrary, not a hidden respect for the weapon system. Noteworthy is the custom version of Kalashnikov for the author - an unregulated frame stock, a modified gas outlet pipe with a single weaver rail, and another compensator - that's all. From a distance of 460m he put bullets in the mesh without any problems.
