Increased resistance ammunition will appear in the Russian army

The Russian Ministry of Defense intends to develop a new generation of ammunition. Such ammunition, according to Vladimir Porhachev, Director General of the Federal State Unitary Enterprise "Krasnoarmeysky Scientific-Testing Institute of Mechanization" (FSUE "KNIIM"), will be invulnerable to a fall from a height, fragmentation damage and open flame. Such ammunition will work only from its detonator.

As Porhachev noted, super-resistant munitions are already used by other countries, but they are not in Russia yet. In particular, the need to complete the development of such ammunition became relevant after a series of incidents with explosions in arsenals and warehouses.

According to Porhachev, it is planned to introduce advanced ammunition for wide use by the year of 2015. “Everything will depend on the financing of this subject,” Porhachev explained.
