Americans will begin mass production of a copy of the RPG-7 grenade launcher

93
Production of an American copy of the Russian (Soviet) RPG-7 grenade launcher will begin in 2016 g, a representative of the developer company AirTronics USA told reporters.




“We developed two versions of the RPG-7, which received the designations PSRL-1 (Precision, Shoulder-fired Rocket Launcher) and GS-777 (PSRL-2). The production of the first model, PSRL-1, will begin in the second quarter of 2016, ”the newspaper quotes the representative of the company as saying. Look.

According to him, “both grenade launchers retained the appearance of the RPG, but the use of new materials made it possible to reduce the mass and increase the level of reliability and usability compared to the Russian model.”

He said that "the PSRL-1 received a new sight with a luminous insert, which simplifies its use in the dark."

The weight of the second sample was reduced to 3,5 kg, that is, almost 2 times as compared to the base RPG-7B2. At the same time, its life cycle was increased to 1 thousand shots. According to the interlocutor, “a further increase in the resource of the PSRL-2 starting device is possible”.

In addition, “the grenade launcher is equipped with a pistol grip and a butt similar to those installed on assault rifles and carbines of the M16 / M4 families,” he added.

The interlocutor noted that “the sight developed in the company allows the operator to destroy the target at a distance of up to 800 meters with the 90-percent probability of being hit by the first grenade”.

It is also planned to develop a new line of ammunition, incl. cumulative and thermobaric.

A company spokesman also said that the RPN-7 is quite often used by the US military to train friendly armies, such as the Afghan and Iraqi armies.

            I don’t know how much the land mine cost, but .... 360 dollars (a grenade from RPG 7 costs about 120 dollars) clearly finished off a multi-million dollar tin can.

          RPG is simple and reliable like felt boots. PIPE WITH HANDLE AND SHOCK MECHANISM. What is there still a license. It is strange that even before they had not been copied. Americans stupid as always.

          The thing is that a patent protects your invention for fifteen years, and then: "freedom, freedom, give me freedom ...". Perhaps that is why it takes about 20-25 years from invention to implementation. The patent ended and "as Shakespeare said in Sonnet 19 ... walk Vasya!"

And then they decided to adopt the Chinese experience. Only an American for a Chinese salary is to work there will be no and at the exit the price will be like three original RPG-7 wink

      "Karl Gustav" has a rifled barrel to stabilize the flight of the projectile. And if a pebble the size of a fingernail hits the rifling of this barrel, the barrel will fly away with the shot. Or maybe take the arrow with you.

          The voivode and the Caliber can only be stolen (bought) by the intelligence services if ours click through .... remark The voivode can be quite officially bought at Yuzhmash outside Ukraine .... and as for RPG 7, it is not said anywhere that the USA is releasing it illegally ... I think a country with a military budget of 10 times more than Russia will have money to purchase a license for outdated development ...

          Why is there such excitement? About a dozen countries tried to copy "Thor", but none of them succeeded. Amers copied the MiG-25 and even collected two copies, but they say that the original, which Belov drove to Japan, bypassed its copies at once. I think it is simply impossible to copy both "Poplar" and "Sineva" without technological maps for every detail. How impossible it is to revive Buran, just because "Many workers who created Buran have retired or died, and even with technological maps it is not possible to create Buran." This is what the designer once said when he was asked: "Why do not Buran fly?" The legend that Tupolev sold the blueprints of the new fighter abroad was once exposed: the total volume of the MiG-1 fighter's blueprints takes the volume of a railway carriage! Of course, Tupolev did not create the MiG-1 and fighters in general. But in the legend of owls. times it was said that it was a fighter, but it was not said which one.

            And what do you think is this obstacle? Thus, the Jews stole the blueprints of the Mirage plane from the French and took them by rail to Israel. We modified the blueprints a bit and named it "Kfir". Until now, they are being exploited and even trying to smuggle the neighbors with old stuff. And no claims about copyright, as is the case with our AK-47, with grenade launchers and other weapons.
            And here, some particularly zealous Russian officials are crucifying about the lack of licenses for American software in computers, in Russian schools ...

        And why be surprised? AK is already being released (despite the fact that even a trademark has been registered in the USA), from the age of 16 RPG, then "Dashki" will start copying and pasting with "KPV", so you look and they will reach the T-72. what is really something to prevent them is not possible, international courts are fiction, only to blow up factories.

    Syria, Russia, Iran and Hezbollah are multiplying ISIS by zero, the United States is quite successfully trying to save them through evacuation to the Turks, and then it will come up with a new name for them and arm it with modernized, tested Soviet weapons. Hence the conclusion: as long as there are masters and sponsors of terror, it will not disappear anywhere. To defeat the shaitan, first you need to tell the truth to the whole world. And this should be done by RUSSIA.

    The weight of the second sample was reduced to 3,5 kg, that is, almost 2 times as compared to the base RPG-7B2. At the same time, its life cycle was increased to 1 thousand shots. According to the interlocutor, “a further increase in the resource of the PSRL-2 starting device is possible”.

    This article is an advertisement. I suspect the cost of this RPG is comparable to a cruise missile ...

      Well, the real value is not in the "pipe" - even if you want to make it out of platinum (or plywood), the value is in the "shot" (that is, in the "thrown grenade" itself) smile But you can copy it, but, basically, only externally. smile

    They shouted for a long time that all the Russian-Soviet weapons were kondovy, rusty, unsuitable.

    Meanwhile, the Poles, without a license, are repairing Soviet planes for former friends.
    The Chinese without permission copy aircraft (engines do not work).
    Kalashnikov all together tried to steal in unison; Americans including; and now we’ve got to RPG-7.

    Try and steal from them the Highest, Most Needed, copyrighted, comic-like cinema - torture.
    But stealing a weapon is a sign of prowess for homosexuals. What kind of copyright?

    A company spokesman also said that the RPN-7 is quite often used by the US military to train friendly armies, such as the Afghan and Iraqi armies.

    On the other hand .... while they are copying, albeit improving, Russia has adopted a fundamentally new in ideology double-barreled hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers - RPG-30 "Hook". Of course, this is a one-off system, but a great idea is embedded in its design. Well, let our "friends" upgrade the good old RPG-7.

    And then it's not cooler. It's just that a private company decided to produce them in the hope of finding a sales market, most likely in third world countries. Naturally, they will not go to the US Army in droves. And if they do, then in small quantities "for training friendly armies." They and Kalash produce

    Nevertheless, they decided to try Soviet oak technology. Simple, reliable, cheap. The fact that they improved it is quite normal. Our people didn’t bother at all, but released an entire RPG reserve. For every taste and color. And all the shots in the TPK.
    It turns out that the Americans improved the grenade launcher, and the shots - a step back?
