Popular Mechanics: Bumblebee flamethrower strikes terror

140
The work of the Russian flamethrower "Bumblebee", seen in Syria in the hands of a government army soldier, was impressed by the American resource Popular Mechanics, who noted that, despite the "cute name", it weapon terrifies, transmits RIA News.




“The Bumblebee is a thermobaric weapon in which a combination of an explosive and a large amount of fuel is used. When the munition reaches the target, the fire mixture is sprayed into the air, which contributes to the ignition of the combustible cloud and activates an explosive charge. Such explosions are especially useful against troops leading from a bunker or a trench, ”explains the author of the publication.

He draws attention to the explosive power of the projectile, which "is so large that the diameter of the fiery cloud can reach 7 meters." According to the author, this “helps to effectively deal with heavy equipment and literally blow up buildings from the inside under increased pressure.”

The publication also notes a fairly simple system for aiming a flamethrower, and its ability to "hit targets at a distance of 800 yards (about 730 meters)."

        And nothing that Bumblebee is already under forty years old, and then he was "noticed"? Coincidence? Probably someone will soon start asking for money for new grenade launchers.

            Doesn't it bother you that the USSR insolently copied the RPG from the German Faustpatron? And many more were copied, for example the first ballistic missile. And the Maxim machine gun is an American development, don't you mind?

                I won’t say anything about the T-34, because tanks with oblique armor in the USSR were already manufactured before the T-34.
                And as for StG-44, see for yourself, well, after all, he looks like our AK. And also the removal of powder gases. Prior to AK, not a single submachine gun in the USSR had the removal of powder gases (Sudaev, PPSh, Tokareva).
                Licked Kalashnikov all the best of the German automatic assault rifle. Yes, he developed a rotary shutter and, as a result, this part of the assault rifle is not like the StG-44. But the rotary bolt, as the most reliable, was "licked" from the American 1 M1943 Garand rifle. The most reliable rifle in the West during the war and after the war.
                It’s just that Kalashnikov knew the weapons of the warring countries very well and did not invent anything new, but combined all the best from other people's designs. And of course, I had to create a lot in the machine myself.

                  study the materiel, especially about the click when the cartridges are exhausted.
                  as for the Stg44, it was not the first and most importantly - there was a cartridge concept, not a design. Its main feature is really decent performance characteristics, however, and there are a lot of shortcomings.

                  About Kalashnikov and Sturmgever ...

                  Well, let's compare the weapons we know and see what happened.

                  Well, let's compare the weapons we know and see what happened from what. The picture in the title shows an incomplete disassembly of the AKM and StG-44. The main difference between the AK and the assault gun is clearly visible - Kalashnikov chose the "up" disassembly scheme through a removable cover, while Hugo Schmeisser chose the "down" disassembly scheme through a hinged trigger mechanism.

                  However, I can immediately notice that Kalashnikov initially chose the same type of disassembly - here is his so-called AK-46 (Kalashnikov assault rifle, model 1946), which was submitted to the assault rifle at the first stage:

                  But just in the AK-46 it is clearly visible that, in addition to the similarity of the disassembly scheme and the general ergonomic layout, Kalashnikov did not have anything in common with the Schmeiser design. For example, it is just striking that there is no characteristic shutter as a single part with a gas piston. Kalashnikov made a gas piston with a rod as a separate part, and it engages with the bolt through an intermediate part - a kind of slide.

                  The test scheme did not justify itself, and therefore the idea from StG-44 was used - combining a gas piston and a bolt frame. However - here it is necessary to understand the main thing - only the idea was used, the constructive solution of Kalashnikov is completely different. In general, the Kalashnikov bolt used a different one - it is locked not by a bias, but by a rotation. Actually, the Kalashnikov’s shutter and USM are practically copied from the American M1 Garand carbine - and this is correct, because why be wise if there is an excellent solution that has proven itself in combat conditions?

                  .........

                  Completely fundamentally different designs, similar in only a few little things. Ah, the little things are for everyone, and the trunk and the store and the bolt are for everyone! But, different.

                  The StG-44 had so many, as they say now, "jambs" that, in comparison with the AK-47, they cannot be compared. Especially for reliability.

                  And, on the basis of MG-42, pin.dos made their machine gun, and still run with it, in various modifications.

And if, according to your words, Kalashnikov put together the best of the world's small arms and made AK, it made him even brighter because the rest of the blunt designers did not guess it!

              It seems to us that the term "copied" is inappropriate in relation to Maxim. The tsarist artillery department bought a license for its production from the British company Vickers. Which, in turn, bought the general license from the developer. The developer is a little-known Belgian mechanic, with an unpronounceable 24-letter surname. I could not pronounce this name, even reading from a piece of paper. And the machine gun was not called Maxim, but Maxima (Latin). The word is taken from the expression "... the last argument of kings." The last, ultimate, is maxima.

              America and Hyrum Maxim have nothing to do with the creation of THIS machine gun. Hyrum Maxim also tried to create a machine gun, but failed. Later he moved to England and began to develop a carriage for Maxima, like a cannon, and then a sitting machine.

                Well, right, it was not copied from the Americans, but from the Germans. We made the first ballistic missile a complete copy of the FAU-2, and even many of the structural elements and the engine were German. They copied a completely German rocket. Korolev launched, looked and said what needs to be done even better, and began to build a new one on the basis of his knowledge. But while they designed a new one, so as not to be left without missiles, they put into service the stolen German engines.

And the accuracy and accuracy of his is not inferior with the correct application. And the Americans just get drunk on reliability. Demand has skyrocketed. Worn out on the market, it is not known whose manufacture. There, and the gas pipe on the barrel turns and the front sight is folded and still buy into a fight. Saiga is highly valued by all.

            Thanks for the link, but it contains the key phrase "RPO-A flamethrower can be effectively used to combat ice jams on rivers." That is, in reality, no one has ever done this. Ice jams are bombed mainly on rather large rivers, and there are such jams that even FAB-250 are ineffective. How it is possible to organize an effective explosion under water and a layer of ice with the help of the Bumblebee is not entirely clear. request

              You don’t understand the physics of the process?

              But it's just ...
              Ice jam is a chaotic pile of ice "plates", between which, naturally, there are cavities, into which, when the ammunition is triggered, the fire mixture penetrates. And thus, when detonated, all this "good", "soars up" ... And besides, the shock wave also hits the "underlying" ice surface, destroying and crushing it ...

              The rest will be done by the flow of the river. You just need to "help" her to move the "gripped" ice ...

              I see only one restriction on the use of such weapons to eliminate congestion, namely, LARGE RIVERS, with large areas of "traffic jams".

              Right there, then, traditional weapons like bombing and bombing are more effective.

                Cavities, of course, are present, only cavities filled with air, where, in fact, aerosol can penetrate, do not play any role in containing water pressure. Such an explosion has no effect on underwater piling. All guidelines for blasting indicate that an effective explosion requires sufficient burial of charges, which, of course, thermobaric ammunition cannot.

                Theoretically, yes, almost when a congestion occurs, the ice is located throughout the thickness of the water, resting on the bottom of the river.

    We have always had flamethrower armament that was not inferior to Western models, and in the 70s-80s a real breakthrough took place in the field of flamethrower armament. This is "Lynx", the first jet infantry flamethrower, then RPO-A, Z, D "Bumblebee" and RPO-PDM "Prize". Heavy flamethrowers are TOS "Buratino" and "Solntsepёk." At the origins of everything were the command and control of the RChBZ troops under the leadership of Colonel-General Pikalov, KBP Shipunov, Institute 33 of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation and other organizations and teams. Many thanks to all of them from everyone who held this weapon in their hands.

    So the picture shows the newest BUR grenade launcher. The Shmel-M model served as the basis for the development of a new small-sized grenade launcher complex. It was first shown to the general public during the INTERPOLITEX exhibition. It happened in the fall of 2013. The high marks of Russian experts prompted the developers to demonstrate the new weapon at the EUROSATORY-2014 exhibition, which was held in Paris. Visitors were shown a unique development of Russian designers - the "Bur" rocket launcher.
    For the "BUR" grenade launcher, various types of shots can be used; scopes of different types are suitable, they change depending on conditions; ammunition is highly effective, despite its relatively low weight and dimensions; grenade launcher "Bur", the characteristics of which do not require significant space for firing, can be used even in small rooms with an area of ​​30 m³; safe to handle and reliable in battle; designed for firing from kneeling positions, lying down, standing; easy to transport, can be used for airborne landing.
    The Bur grenade launcher, whose performance characteristics have several unique features, immediately after its appearance became the subject of increased attention of professionals. The maximum lethal range of the gun is 950 meters, and the minimum distance at which you can hit the target is 25 meters. When using a telescopic sight, a fighter armed with a "Boer" is capable of aimed fire from a distance of up to 650 meters. The launcher with an optical sight has a mass of up to 1,5 kg. The Bur grenade launcher with a thermobaric warhead can be used for combat at ambient temperatures ranging from -40 to + 60 ° C. The launcher is designed for at least five hundred rounds. It was found that the "Bur" grenade launcher has the following accuracy of fire at a distance of two hundred meters: height deviation (Вв) - ≤ 0,5; side deviation (Wb) - ≤ 0,5. At present, the production of these weapons has been established at the Tula military plant. The Belarusian holding "BelOMO" has developed and created for the new grenade launcher several special types of sights: day, night and thermal imaging.

    You at least looked at Faustpatron and RPGs and read about their device (the first one is disposable, the second is reusable, etc.). Straight "similarity to the point of confusion."
    Delivering a means of destruction to the target with the help of a jet (powder) engine began in China in the XNUMXth century, so the question is who and from whom "insolently copied."
    Or, in your opinion, do the Russians "insolently copy", while the rest "wisely adopt the experience"?

    Let me ask, and what is there in common ??!

    But the principle of operation is almost the same - the barrel of the Faustpatron is open on both sides, when the propellant is ignited, part of the gases pushed the grenade forward, and the other (large) part pulled back from the barrel, forming a jet stream.
    Do you need "Locksmith" to match everything up to a millimeter? There was no such weapon in the USSR. And suddenly appeared in 1947.


    Then they reduced the projectile from the BM-31 and used a pipe instead of rail guides.
    "The RS-82 missiles of 82 mm caliber were installed on the I-15, I-16, I-153 fighters. In the summer of 1939, the RS-82 on the I-16 and I-153 were successfully used in battles with Japanese troops on the Khalkhin-Gol River. . "
    So who and who copied (in terms of missile armament of aircraft), is still a very big question.
