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.

    Yes, we’ve survived, instead of IMPROVING ORDER in the country, we throw grandmothers out of the blue with dubious qualities! Well, tell me - how many of these cartridges do you make right now ??? And the existing ones ??? Sell ​​it ??? Well, yes, something to justify the shortage of warehouses ...

    I still support the initiative, too many guys died during the disposal of shells.

    in the late 80s they fired mines of the 38th year of manufacture and nothing. ammunition already has good reserves of "strength".
    IMHO all emergency situations in warehouses occur for reasons of indifference to both the persons responsible for storage and the people making the disposal.

      I agree. When he personally served, he dissuaded the Kent not to “smash” the ammunition in order to get it out, or what else was “valuable”, and then to drive it for money. And there were those who wanted to buy explosives. I also remember persuading a couple of pistols to rest on the headstock.
      And the recent cases with the undermining of utilized ammunition (and as a rule the officer was always absent at the same time), I am inclined to attribute it to chewing as a means of raising TNT for sale.
      Oh, boys, boys. Yes, it's not worth it. Life will be more expensive.
