Foreign customers are interested in a unique sniper rifle VKS Russian production

59
At the Interpolitex-2014 exhibition, the head of the delegation of Instrument Design Bureau of Instrument Engineering OJSC (KBP) said that foreign customers were interested in the unique large-caliber silent sniper rifle of the Russian-made VKS.

Foreign customers are interested in a unique sniper rifle VKS Russian production


“The interest of foreign countries to“ Exhaust ”is present. Currently, small shipments of these weapons are exported, ”Amelina quotes TASS.

12.7-mm large-caliber rifle VKS can hit a large number of targets, including those protected by means of individual armor, at distances to 600 m. By combining a large caliber and a highly effective silencer, the designers were able to achieve virtually silent destruction of the target. The bullpup layout ensures efficient use of the rifle, which weighs no more than 6.5 kg in an unloaded condition.
At the moment, the VKS has no analogues in the market of small arms.

        Well, the little article, nothing concrete, except for the statement of a certain official. To whom we sell, how much? How much do we sell our sun ??? Will we ever see such a weapon in the hands of a Russian contractor? Or only in the mask show of some detachment of the Federal Penitentiary Service and the like?

        It has existed for a long time, like our pride "Vintorez", and the fact that we have not heard about terrorist attacks lately also says that the rifle is in action ...
        "Kord", "Balkan", "Gyurza", PP2000 are also unsurpassed in my opinion samples of small arms.

      Well, what a euphorithia. It's just a common PR. For the first time "exhaust" was demonstrated at the "Interpolitech-2005".
      Of course, foreigners are interested, otherwise why go to the exhibition. And of course they sell small lots, at least for collectors (And in general, it is difficult to imagine a large patria of special weapons).
      Here is another moment, they are going to be corporatized and to cover up the shooter, but they, apparently, have nothing to show what they have done in ten years. So they shake the "exhaust".

    The aiming range, presumably, was affected by the subsonic speed of the bullet. According to the pictures from Syria, when a sniper and machine gunners from embrasures fire such a thing through a brick wall, it should work well.

    I get the seditious thought that Kalashnikov was a brake on our small arms. He crushed everyone with his authority and connections in higher circles. In his youth he served in TurkVO, in the city of Nebit-Dag. In shooting from AK, he was almost a dive. After a year of service, they transferred to another part, where SKS carbines were in service. So, they gave five rounds and all five hit the center of the target! Probably you can’t calculate how many soldiers died due to jumping AK. Why Kalashnikov could not understand that from a Lada, you can not make a Mercedes? I didn’t want to part with fame, honor.

      Well, if without humor, then in my opinion each invention has its own time and purpose! Kalashnikov was good at the time, replacing carbines and submachine guns. Easy to manufacture, trouble-free, inexpensive, it was mastered in an hour of study not only The USSR is ovsk collective farm draftees, but also any baboons of any African or Asian country! That is valuable! And as regards the suppression of attempts by young engineers to put in the series something new ...

    In Sovdepovskoy Racea weapons were made on the principle - simpler, cheaper, more reliable, longer, thicker and with a solid end. With the advent of power, the liberal and democratic principle was replaced by another - More expensive, it seems, is worse, shorter, more flimsy with a soft end. Zaebonitili already Enti plastic guns! On the site, people who are not indifferent, enthusiastic, hang out and I would even say they know about weapons. So here are the people! But didn’t the idea come to you that the pistol grip on assault rifles is inappropriate? Justified. For those who shot at one time from a hunting rifle, SKS carbine, pistol pool. PPSh could feel the difference between the convenience of the application, the retention of the weapon and its instant readiness for bayonet combat, without interception, unlike the AK-47 automatic rifle and its brothers. Or maybe the new is the forgotten old?

      And also convulsive attempts to seize the rifle box in order to conduct a sudden fire, when there is no time to grab the forearm, and the vile enemy is already choosing a place to put a bullet at you. How do you imagine replacing a magazine without taking your hands off the weapon control stick and observing the enemy with the weapon barrel if the control handle is rifle?

And sho take a rifle handle? I would like to clarify the need to grab the forend in the absence of time. Kindergarten, damn it ......

          For the little kids, I explain on the fingers:
          Weapon control handle took the name from the pistol handle, the part of the weapon holding which is necessary to open immediate fire. That is (for children again) the forend, the store, the butt and the additional handle are not suitable. If you can shoot and get (at least 30m) from the AK without holding its pistol grip, then this is not for you.
          Observing the enemy with a gun barrel is just where you look there and the barrel, regardless of whether you recharge, move, crawl, the barrel is always directed towards the enemy, you look through the line of sight. A vile enemy tends to lean out when you are not waiting for it and often people who do not watch the enemy constantly observing the enemy’s barrel become victims of their own self-confidence. The enemy, he’s already aiming, and while you raise the trunk (at least in the approximate direction you don’t get, at least scare) while you feel the trigger, you get a couple of extra holes in the body.
          The rifle handle, they generally say, but I don’t remember exactly what part of it is called, the neck of the butt seems to be.

            Eh, yokarny babay! What a ride to Rasei! He doesn't know a damn thing! I explain: there is a notion of "directed shooting" in the fire business. That is, shooting without the use of sighting devices. This type of shooting is used mainly when shooting at night "on the barrel" and when solving sudden fire missions. When placing targets along the front, the weapon is held with two hands at waist level. In the presence of targets in a narrow sector of fire and located in depth, the weapon is held with one hand by pressing the butt with the elbow. A properly trained soldier has stable skills of hitting targets such as a chest target from the belt at a distance of up to 300 meters. Moreover! Normal tank officers trained their crews in hand-held fire from PKT at a distance of 200-300 meters. The main problem of such training was the search for an unnecessary piece of tarpaulin to save hands from burns, but this was in the Soviet Army. I don't know how fighters are taught now. So, children, read and memorize, it may come in handy when.

              Well, fiction directly, why the hell then properly trained fighter, sights up to 300 meters in general? laughing Why are these 1,2,3 on the aiming bar, because the right fighter strikes the chest target with fire from the belt without any problems! belay Why do the comrades from Alpha raise their weapons to the shoulder (I don’t take my modest experience as a flamethrower and machine gunner of the OSN VV MVD) because they, as an example of properly trained fighters, beat the chest 300 meters from the belt, why? Indeed, in a close urban battle, you will not find a distance above 100-150m wassat Oh, I haven't laughed like that for a long time, to plant 300 meters from the belt and still get into the chest, well, you "gave the country of coal" you will not find such fantasy in the afternoon with fire.
