The reason for asking questions is the lack of answers about the reasons for the destruction of the AK-47, which is described in the Quick Start Guide (1949 edition of the year): "The Kalashnikov 7,62-mm automatic rifle is a powerful automatic individual small arms."
As is known, the power of fire (weapons) is determined by the formula: M = E * n * p, where E is the energy of the bullet at the target, n is the rate of fire, and p is the probability of hitting the target; at the same time, the dimension (energy of impact of a bullet on a target / time) indicates the amount of muzzle energy useful for the time spent.
In addition, muzzle energy is associated with the probability of hitting through a ballistic coefficient (BC), which characterizes the ability of a bullet to maintain the direction of movement to the target and depends on the combination of caliber, bullet weight and its initial velocity.
1 question. Can we deny that the likelihood of a bullet depends on the quality of bringing a weapon to a normal battle, that is, on the normal position of the front sight on the barrel?
2 question. Is it possible to deny that, as a result of bringing to a normal battle, the influence of the recoil of the weapon on the angle of departure and, consequently, on the dispersion of bullets, is eliminated?
3 question. Is it possible to deny that the accuracy and accuracy parameters for single shooting with automatic rifles of 7,62 and 5,45 caliber correspond to the same standards specified in the Manual on rifle case (NSD)?
4 question. Is it possible to deny that the accuracy and accuracy parameters of firing with bursts of light machine guns of caliber 7,62 and 5,45 meet the same standards specified in the unauthorized access regime?
5 question. If the automata do not set standards for accuracy and accuracy of firing bursts, then why the uncertainty of these parameters is used to propagate both the absent advantages of AK-12 and the nonexistent minuses of AK-47?
6 question. Is it possible to deny that the 7,62 bullet BK is higher than the 5,45 bullet BQ, and that the low stability of the latter in the trajectory according to the AK-74 state test report leads to the possibility of rebounding even from light obstacles?
7 question. How could the reduction in XK of the 5,45 bullet lead to smaller — compared to the 7,62 bullet — probable deviations indicated in the firing tables?
8 question. Why did the “Warrior”, caught up in 7,62 bullets, retaining destructive power at a distance of up to 1500 meters, have to fire back from AK-12 5,45 bullets, retaining destructive power at a distance of 1350 meters?
9 question. If in the AK-47 Service Quick Guide, the rate of 600 firing per minute is indicated, then why is the same rate specified in the ATA on AKM, which is equipped with a trigger retarder?
10 question. Is it possible to deny that replacing the AK-47 with AKM with a lower rate of fire is a clear disregard for such a characteristic as firing power and, therefore, the fundamentals of design laid down by V. G. Fedorov and A. A. Blagonravov?
11 question. If GOST 28653-90 “Small arms. Terms and definitions ”does not allow the substitution of the concept of“ practical rate of fire ”by the concept of“ combat rate of fire ”, then why the term that has no meaning is used in unauthorized access, the lexicon and in correspondence?
12 question. What is taught by NSD, according to which the combat rate of fire when shooting single shots from the RPK-74 can reach 50 shots per minute, and from AK-74 - only 40, despite the fact that the automation cycle is the same?
13 question. Can we deny that the main reason for the appearance of automatic weapons was the desire to increase their power by increasing the rate of fire included in the formula, which depends on the time of reloading?
14 question. Can one deny the objectivity of the definition of terms: “loading is the bringing of all mechanisms of a weapon to its original position before a shot, and reloading is the restoration of the initial position of all mechanisms after a shot”?
15 question. Can we deny that the reloading of modern weapons is not fully automated, since restoring the original position of the firing mechanism (USM) provides the shooter when the trigger is released from the pressure?
16 question. What for at the level of GOST 28653-90 creates the appearance of the existence of small arms with full automation of reloading (the term 7)?
17 question. What prevents to issue and implement a tactical and technical requirement such as “Automate the process of preparing USM for re-firing” or “Ensure the full automation of the reloading of small arms”?
18 question. Is it possible to deny that restoring the original position of the trigger provides complete reloading automation by definition of V. G. Fedorov: “In an automatic weapon, the pressure of powder gases developed when fired is used not only to eject a bullet from the barrel, but also to reload, namely: opening the bolt, ejecting the spent cartridge case, cocking the coil spring of the trigger or hammer, inserting a new cartridge into the barrel chamber and locking the bolt; the only thing left for the shooter is the work of aiming, pulling the trigger and changing the magazine or tape when the cartridges are spent?
19 question. Is it possible to deny that reloading according to Fedorov opens the era of transition to small arms of a new type, capable of firing single fires with extremely high rate of fire, which will depend only on pressing the cyclically returned trigger?
20 question. Can the idea of Fedorov be realized by a potential adversary or by any of our competitors in the arms market, if the intellectual property of the Russian Federation in this area does not have international legal protection?
