Grenade launcher from the Ukrainian shipyard

Grenade launcher from the Ukrainian shipyard



The Ukrainian shipyard Leninskaya Kuznya announced the launch of production of the 40-mm automatic grenade launcher UAG-40.

The UAG-40 is an automatic grenade launcher that uses ammunition that meets NATO standards. Interestingly, this grenade launcher is not the work of designers from Ukraine, it was created in Belarus. The state headquarters of foreign trade GWTUP Belspetsvoentekhnika (BSVT) is engaged in its promotion in this country.



Unlike the AGS-17 automatic grenade launchers used by the Belarusian and Ukrainian armies, the new weapon does not use Russian 30 mm x 29B ammunition. Instead, they use the more common in the world types of grenades of NATO standards of caliber 40 mm x 53 mm in the American metal band M16.



The UAG-40 automatic grenade launcher works on the principle of using the recoil energy of the free stroke of the shutter. The weapon is extremely light. The weight of the grenade launcher is 17 kg (without ammunition), and with a tripod it does not exceed 31 kg. For comparison, the weight of the AGS-17 with a tripod is 35 kg, the weight of the American Mk 19 grenade launcher of the 3 mod is 32,9 kg, and in addition the 9,5 kg weighs a tripod.



The design of the grenade launcher allows you to start fire without prior preparation and waiting from unprepared positions. Because of its low mass, the calculation can very quickly move the weapon and change the firing position. In order to reduce recoil, the UAG-40 was equipped with a shutter damper, a three-stage barrel cutting and a muzzle brake. The firing range of the grenade launcher ranges from 40 to 2200 meters. The weapon is equipped with a switch that allows you to change the type of firing from a single to continuous and back. At a continuous rate, the grenade launcher fire rate is 400 shots / min.

The total length of the grenade launcher - 960 mm, barrel length - 400 mm. Pitch rifling - 1220 mm. The number of rifling variables is 8 in the initial part, 16 in the middle, and 24 in the end part of the trunk. The initial speed of the grenade 240 m / s.

      Where will you sit with such a burden. Until the sniper kills. Need mobility. Look about Russian developments, and compare those characteristics

    I just looked at the AGS 30 .. but he has less caliber .. it’s more compact
    but it’s rather a cheap version of the American analogue ... under the widespread ammunition all sorts of Negro Arabs would stick it into Toyota in the back of the car and rush (of course there are no bells and whistles with remote detonation) as in ours

    Yes range .. but ammunition effective in my opinion
    and the ammunition nomenclature is much larger than ours.
    Although ours have an interesting AGS Balkan, too, 40 mm.
    but this is more a debate about the type of ammunition

      Ammunition is another song. I do not think that in Ukraine there is a full production cycle of such ammunition, they are most likely from the warehouses of the former Soviet Army

        Yes, there are several ammunition plants in Ukraine, it seems the largest Lugansk. A grenade launcher is not a cruise missile; it can be fired in the same place where hunting cartridges do. I think the caliber was also chosen for export, probably in Ukraine in the warehouses of grenade launcher megaton shots like everything else. Anyway, they don’t buy nichrome in the army in Ukraine, except for dust soap.

        In general, I think that this active cooperation with the Belarusians is caused more likely by the problems of the legitimacy of the Belarusian authorities in the west and certain problems with the sale of weapons arising from this. And since Ukraine sells weapons and even makes them, the loot goes to everyone. Father in this matter for some reason scored on Russia by the way.

      Well, you can from the warehouses of the American army, the main thing is that they themselves do not produce

    they don’t have to produce ammunition obviously for export.
    and such ammunition 40X53 mm produce a bunch of countries
    And nothing less than TTX is not worse than Mk-19 Mod3 (USA)
    looks a bit plain

    As far as I know, a tripod is used to mount cameras and other equipment, and a machine is used to mount weapons.
    So, IMHO, the machine of this grenade launcher has a huge drawback, it does not provide shooting from a prone position. Imagine: bullets are whistling around, mines and shells explode nearby, enemy attack aircraft and helicopters are roaring with a roar, and you, all in a fashionable camouflage outfit, in trump boots, sit in a relaxed position and slowly smoking, shoot from arrogant enemies . I don’t know about you, but at this moment I would prefer to be as close to the surface of the earth as possible. Although maybe I misunderstood something, and this design is specially made such, such as a special edition, such as for ne **** ***** heroes, such as Rimbaud or Schwartz? no

    Baryshev’s grenade launcher is better, lightweight, it shoots like a light machine gun with hands.

    Maybe I didn’t understand, but with such a miracle I didn’t shoot. However, our "Flame" I think is a classic, and you need to dance from it. Anyone who has seen how tears fall from his tears will not blow off the extra voros.

    I add my knowledge of this issue. The fact that the body sits and shoots is normal. Whoever is familiar with this case, he imagines that the fire is conducted by a hinged trajectory (and at the same time you can even sit in a sartir - sorry). Our Flame has a radius of 15, who understands this a lot and is quite enough. Copies especially for NATO ammunition is a losing option, 30mm will live for a long time.

      Guys, the machine is purely for export, Ukrainian. the army will not buy it 99%. What are we arguing about? There is a demand for inexpensive grenade launchers for American ammunition - this is the offer.

    A bunch of flaws:
    -high dimension;
    - the duration of the installation of the machine, and he himself somehow looks fragile
    -diopter at a range of 2200 wink
    -inability to conduct mounted fire
    only if installed on vehicles with a tougher fit

    Oh, really. Vidocok is like a broken harrow on a collective farm forge. I would like to see how this machine, sorry, a tripod is transferred by calculation in combat conditions. Could it be with the help of camels? And like ammunition, probably crosswise across the chest. In short, IMHO, a more awkward design had not been seen for a long time. I doubt that this miracle may interest anyone in terms of procurement when there are repeatedly tested and run-in samples of the AGS-17 type

    I’ll look at some specialists! Although someone worked with this machine? The sight is really bullshit, but I don’t think that it’s impossible to mount any devices! With ags-17 and ags-30 you don’t run too fast for it to fire from a position, equipment (for example, I saw a variant of a Kozak armored personnel carrier with an UAG-40 installed on the roof). Yes, and in general the info is rather meager! AGS-17 is time-tested and the UAG-40 is still a dark horse, although I have a pretty idea! I wonder how much the box has been shot for, some box mount?
