Wasserman on the refusal of the Ministry of Defense to purchase AK

Wasserman on the refusal of the Ministry of Defense to purchase AKSomething about a deserted defense. On Tuesday, the Russian military refused to buy even the latest versions of the Kalashnikov assault rifle, which has been continuously improved for the seventh decade.


September 27 Chief of General Staff Nikolai Makarov said: the Ministry of Defense decided not to buy AK-74. According to him, our reserves are tens of times greater than the needs, and the machine itself is no longer satisfied with the troops. Plant "Izhmash" to replace the hundredth series is developing a fundamentally new weapon. New machine promise to submit at the end of this year.

Kalashnikov rifle lives 10000-12000 shots. True, the American M-sixteen gives 86000. But ten times more expensive than AK: for the same money you can shoot more from AK. And in terms of ease of maintenance and reliability of work in the most inconceivable conditions, our weapons have no equal at all. No wonder it is valued throughout the world.

A group of designers led by Mikhail Kalashnikov won the 1947 competition in g. Two years later, large-scale production began. AK became the basis of a large family of military and civilian weapons of various calibers. It is included in the Guinness Book of Records as the most common small arms: its variants comprise the 1 / 7 of all small arms in the world and are in service with 106 countries.

If, as in the late Soviet time, there are only nine rounds of ammunition fired for the whole period of service, then there really is enough stock for our age. If we hope that the nuclear power is not touched, then there is no need to shoot at all, but we just need to bring new missiles to mind.

But against the strong there is a salami strategy. This sausage is cut so thin that the slices shine through. So the claim to a nuclear power is broken down into such petty inquiries that each time it seems easier to concede than to plunge the whole world into a fire. We have already reached out: NATO is a couple of hours drive from Kaliningrad and Minsk.

With non-nuclear resistance, the people cannot do without. This means that it’s necessary to save weapons not for the army, but for the whole nation.

The Kalashnikov assault rifle was created from the experience of the greatest war, where tens of millions of inexperienced recruits fought. He gives a novice a good chance even against a professional. When for the first time after the naval department I have to shoot in a queue, a reliable Kalash will be better than newfangled wonders of technology.

    Yes, the Kalash’s all grew. The defense is clogged for 100 years ahead! ...

    half of the old Kalash from the warehouse must be sold, and in their place new ones must be bought, and if you keep it idle for a long time (even if in oil), it will still become worthless

    It is too early to draw such conclusions. "With non-nuclear resistance, the people cannot do without people. Therefore, it is necessary to stock up weapons not for the army, but for the whole people." What, 140 million trunks? 9 million Soviet soldiers fought in the Great Patriotic War. It follows from this that we could arm all WWII soldiers using only half of the supplies! Neglecting the reserves of SCS, PPSh and mosinoks. We must wait until the end of the year when they present a new sample, and if everything is fine, then start purchasing it. This is for the army. However, the article does not indicate (intentionally or not, I don’t) that Onatole is an ardent old man of legalizing weapons in the Russian Federation in the manner of how it was done in the USA. In this context, and this is precisely what Onatole meant, of course, to continue to produce weapons at the old pace and even increase production would make sense. It is necessary to read the original Wasserman.

    Honor and glory to the nugget inventor M. Kalashnikov and the factory that produced this product! Why invent something if it already exists. Improvement - yes, it is necessary. The tendency to purchase foreign weapons is at least amazing. And what about our military-industrial complex? If we are going to NATO, then this may be justified. Although our plants can be redesigned. Hey, boss, what are you doing?

    I completely agree with the author ... as in the old joke ... and the realists are studying the Kalashnikov assault rifle. What is the refusal to purchase ... this is due to the fact that they are not engaged in the preparation of troops ... everyone groans the machine guns a lot of rounds even more, like we don’t need ... you don’t need it right ... but someone thought about the State. The troops in the field and at the training grounds ... let them hammer around the clock in any weather, so that 300 rounds of ammunition per day are fired per soldier. The second, concrete betrayal, the destruction of our own industries and personnel. Here the reconnaissance has to work. I won’t be surprised if all these reformers are seated with tickets to lndongrad in their pocket ..

    But here it’s not just about AK. Look, all the "global innovations" of the witches of EdRosy - border on complete nonsense, or outright mockery of people! Monetization, USE and the entire reform of education, medicine, the so-called "reform" of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the army ... The army was almost finished off, destroying the personnel, now we need to destroy the basis of the foundations - light, almost universal and quite modern weapons - a Kalashnikov assault rifle. Apparently, again someone is facing a giant rollback, and people on IzhMash will be left without work. Theater of the absurd. It seems that at the end of the curtain (I hope this is so - they will soon have the curtain), the witches have finally decided to "gouge" everything, such as "don’t get to anyone," Mother Russia. Bastards, one word.

    The development of a new machine is, of course, who would argue. And Kalash, the best one, will not hurt to improve. Is it true that the number of machines exceeds the needs? I hope they took into account its illegal sale.

    No, that's right, we don’t need automatic machines. We need a uniform from Yudashkin. And the automatic machine "on batteries" with some "nanoparticles". We will buy boats from France, Tanks are possible from the Germans. Well and so on. In general, it’s annoying, they’ll show us in a box, so we’ve created it. For whom? For Indians, Malaysians and so on. For some reason, they have money to buy, but not in their homeland. Maybe they have fewer homegrown oligarchs?

    Unfortunately, only common words.
    What is Kalash the best to argue?
    A phrase
    Kalashnikov assault rifle lives 10000-12000 shots. True, the American M-sixteen gives 86000

    And in general here is the M-16? !!!
    Or is a respected author aware that MO will rearm on something like this?
    More specifically, you can only talk on the topic of abandoning AK, only knowing what is hidden:
    The Izhmash plant, in place of the hundredth series, is developing a fundamentally new weapon. They promise to introduce a new machine at the end of this year.

    those. that is replacing, and so ...
    Even somehow unexpectedly.

    You know, everything goes in a spiral. And all this reminds me of 1940. Then, too, did not have time with rearmament. And the generals now, as then, are made up of ... lizs. Almost all sensible military leaders were either transplanted or shot. True, embezzlers have also been added. Sorry for Russia.

      and I’m sick of only one thing - that millions of lives of ordinary people were laid in the war and megacities were used to restore the country. And these "RATS" (quote) come running as always ready for everything, provoke a new war and burrow, gnaw the looted grain and wait out the cold. Another war will take place, they will again climb out and plunder, and so our whole history will spiral and we live -su --- ki!

        UAZ Patriotbut think about it - it’s we who let the hyena come to us. And not just allowed, but defended in 1991: "grow hyena, develop ...". We went the way of a sucker - at first we won a victory at an incredible price, then we relaxed a bit (stagnation), swayed (after stagnation and it doesn’t happen), and then they showed us candy, and we ran after it like a kitten, hand it out left and right, for that our grandfathers shed blood.

            Voted for the collapse of the USSR (sorted in descending order):
            Ukrainian SSR 28,0%
            RSFSR 26,4%
            Chechen-Ingush Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic 22,6%
            .
            Karakalpak Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic 1,8%
            Turkmen SSR 1,7%
            Bashkir Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic 0,94%

            We are leaders among those who wanted the collapse of the USSR; we, along with the Chechens, are on the list of those who have ruined the Union. Who defended the White House, ghosts or what? More than a quarter of “dissenting” - this is a lot, this is a critical mass.

            It is also paradoxical that 2.3% in the RSFSR managed to spoil the ballots. Maloobrazovannye Turkmen only 0.4%. Here in detail:

                  the problem is that those whom you can buy from the authorities and those to whom you give a kick are the majority of the people (with the exception of the intelligentsia). That’s all the troubles of Russia. if it weren’t for a simple plumber to plumber, everyone would be a zerg in the country, but they won’t understand this because of their natural stupidity. If the authorities had an intelligentsia instead of a thief, then the country would have been all zebest, but they would not be willing to climb into power from a great mind.

                    UAZ Patriot, 26,4% are not people in power, they are the same as we are. Moreover, when they ticked the "no" column, the hand was probably hard and a smile on his face. Again, this is called "sucker."

                    And where does the intelligentsia, in Turkmenistan, have more scientists? :) In an equal situation, more than a quarter of the people voted against us. They explained to us that "nefig feed the republic," and we are happy to destroy everything and everyone. Suckers. Since 1953 we have been following the path of sucker. And Khrushchev began it with his "debunking of the cult of personality."

                        UAZ Patriot, so they are in the remaining 70%. Although, I personally knew two "reformers" who grew up from the defense industry. But there are only a few of them and they are mainly Komsomol members and party organizers - the most fucking part of the Communists. In the 90s, kids in the United States were attached, scum.

                        And so they are the geeks by whom the "Local" judges now and pokes at us with them. It pokes right - it was necessary to take them “where necessary” earlier, only formally for nothing, but informally - this is 1937. So think, as they say, what is right and what is not.

                  In fact, everything is worse. The scum is in power - FSB officers, who count votes in the elections. It is good of course to have a legitimate (legally elected) power. Voluntarily they will not leave, rather 3 Caucasian will do. All the same, it’s worth trying the Communist Party.
