16
Specialists of the Kalashnikov concern modernized the combat module for armored vehicles due to the additional manual control mode and improved protection, reports TASS message to the company representative.




“Compared to the basic version ... the angle of the weapon lift has been changed, which is now 70 degrees. The module has a manual weapon control mode that allows it to fire in case of automation fails, ”said the interlocutor at the“ Day of Innovations of the Defense Ministry of the Russian Federation ”in Kubinka.

According to him, “optoelectronic equipment remains the same, but now there is work to increase the target detection range.”

Work is also underway to improve the target tracking machine. "Currently, he can capture up to ten fixed and one moving target," - said the source.

Also improved armor module. “Now the concern is considering options for completing its development with a booking from NII Steel or VSMPO-AVISMA,” he added.

In addition, the module received a safety device that blocks fire when the car’s doors are open. “Kalashnikov is working to make this device a sector one,” the agency’s source said. “When the left door of a combat vehicle opens, the left sector of firing will be blocked.”

According to him, the concern is ready for serial production of the module, and if there is an order, it can start it already this year.

Previously, the module was shown on the RAE - 2015 forum. According to the developers, it can be equipped with four types of weapons - machine guns caliber 7,62 or 12,7 mm, 30-mm or 40-mm grenade launcher.

      Up to this place it was cool and understandable, but here it was suddenly embarrassing. It seems that everything is not so chocolate with this module, since the availability of an order is not observed?

        Maybe in Syria? Better place for such a machine can not be found. Yes, and a lot of things you can experience there.

    the module received a safety device that blocks firing when the car is open.

    Uh, actually, why?

      Perhaps not to stuff the fighter coming out the door?

    This, in my opinion, is superfluous for the Russian army. It is, of course, useful in peacetime, but in a combat situation it will play a cruel joke. There will always be an eccentric who does not close hatches (doors). And most of the commanders of our gallant Red Army love to stick to the hatch to the depths of their souls. Such a comrade will get a bullet on the march, will fall down inside, and armored vehicles are not BG. Or the anti-aircraft gunner MANPADS on the march - the same option.
    The fewer limit switches on armored vehicles, the better it is in battle.
    And confuses, judging by the photo, the stubborn reluctance to install combined ATGMs in the combat modules. I personally do not understand this. ATGM is not a luxury, but a necessity.
    The rest is pretty good.

      A tough question, really. If the module can fire in a fully-automatic mode, then in the absence of a system of unique target exclusion (RFID, for example), the devil knows what he recognizes. Getting out of the car and getting a queue in the back of the head will be ... unpleasant, let’s say so.

        Yes, not only get out .. If it is installed on an armored personnel carrier, which moves in battle behind the infantry fighting order, it will put its entire unit.

    This is not for you jewelry or consumer goods, so that customers immediately flock and BUY. Delegations, I think, first you need to get acquainted with the products in detail, negotiate, then order. This is the shortest weapons acquisition process.
