New weapon sights "Shvabe" successfully passed tests

New weapon sights "Shvabe" successfully passed tests

At the test site, two types of new sights were tested: CSPs (sights of replaceable magnification) and 1x20PM3 software. It was necessary to check the accuracy of hitting the target at various magnifications of the object, to determine the effect of the 1x20 series of wide-angle sights on the rate of vskidyvaniya weapons and evaluate the benefits of the new reticle.

During the tests, the declared technical characteristics of the new scopes were confirmed. Established their advantage over other models. For example, the PSU sight when working with an assault rifle showed an increase in the accuracy of the target at a distance of 100 and 200 meters. When working with the Pecheneg machine gun, the sight of the interchangeable magnification saves ammunition and increases the accuracy of target destruction, regardless of the target object magnification.

Tests of the 1x20PM3 software have shown that the time of fixation of the eye at the exit pupil when the weapon is raised and the target is captured under close combat conditions has decreased. In addition, it was found that the folding protective covers of the sight prevent contamination of the optics during bad weather, under extreme hiking conditions and during intense combat.

Holding "Shvabe" unites the main domestic enterprises of the optical-electronic industry. It consists of 62 organizations, including research, production and production associations, design offices, state optical institutions and enterprises. The holding develops and manufactures high-tech optical-electronic systems and complexes for military and civil purposes, medical equipment, energy-efficient lighting engineering. The holding is part of Rostec State Corporation. Until November, 2012 was called NPK Optical Systems and Technologies. The general director is Sergey Valerievich Maksin. The headquarters is located in Yekaterinburg. The products of the holding enterprises are supplied to 95 countries of the world.

    PSU (sight zoom shift)

    1X20 Series Wide Sight

    And they want to put THIS on machine guns and machine guns ???
    Great !!!
    Previously, even on the TPD-K1 T-72 there was no changeable magnification (for the gunner) ... eheh.
    I wanted to hear more about these sights. And you yourself would ... ahem ... "try" ...
    And then I sometimes NSPU dream at night about their size ...

    And anyway: a fighter needs to train ALWAYS and EVERYWHERE! Sighting brand - a ticket to life!

    The holding was established in 2008 as part of the state policy on reforming the defense industry of Russia in order to increase competitiveness in the world market of the Russian optoelectronic industry.
    Initially, the holding included 14 FSUEs. To date, almost all of them are corporatized. In 2011, the holding re-registered by moving from Moscow to Yekaterinburg. In October 2012, rebranding was carried out.
    Holding received the name "Schwabe" in honor of Fedor Schwabe - The founder of one of the enterprises of the holding, the Ural Optical and Mechanical Plant. E. S. Yalamova. The new corporate identity of the company was developed by the designers of the British agency HuntHaggarty under the supervision of the Russian advertising company Apostol. According to an unnamed source of Vedomosti, rebranding cost $ 1,5 million

    Here are just all 19 enterprises, when joining this "holding" were forced to close some of their industries and projects to please "the next effective managers." Some enterprises were forced to curtail expensive, complex developments for the sake of simple, "fast-effective" ones that brought quick profits. at a minimum cost. For example, the refinery (Novosibirsk Instrument-Making Plant) was forced to curtail the production of telescopes in favor of the production of sights. Few people know, but the production of the sight, with all the apparent complexity, is simpler than the production of the same "primitive" TAL-75, not to mention the APOLARs and Klevtsovs.
