    "Kalashnikov" will not let you down - no matter what! I saw a lot of things during my long service - both good and bad ... And my gratitude for life - to Mikhail Timofeevich, his ingenious weapon and people whose hands make it for us. I hope that Kalashnikov's missiles are the same as machine guns. good

      What are you saying?
      Kirov plant Mayak did not deliver 326 guided missiles Vortex-1. The manufactured materiel did not pass the tests, the characteristics are not confirmed. The pre-production schedules of the enterprise are disrupted.

      A similar situation has developed for the supply of Vortex-1 rockets by the Kalashnikov concern. Not delivered 1972 guided missiles. Reasons: poor processing of design documentation and failure to carry out full-fledged production activities.

        Have I written somewhere that I'm a specialist rocket? A machine for me and thousands of people like me more than once saved my life and, I think, will save more.

        And about the fact that I transferred the opinion of machine guns to missiles - did you hear about extrapolation? hi

          And what's the difference, heard or not? Your assumption was not successful in this particular case and the refinement was correct. I would write about it myself if I hadn’t gotten ahead wassat
          It's not about a machine gun, but about a concern. Gendir is certainly a handsome man, "it was possible in the shortest possible time not only to establish large-scale production" looks gorgeous, taking into account the fact that the terms have been disrupted decently.

            as it were, so as not to offend you ... you know, to establish serial production of ATGMs is not to open a pot manufacturing plant. They - rockets, I mean - have control electronics inside, a laser communication channel and all kinds of position sensors. All this equipment should not just work on your desk, but work under conditions of overload, shock loads and in a wide range of temperatures, humidity and smoke. Moreover, all this economy should be noise-resistant.
            Now imagine that foreign components (mainly electronics) were not delivered to you due to the sanctions. And imagine that it is somehow easier to establish quality control over the production of pots than for high-tech equipment, despite the fact that your industry is either destroyed or in a deplorable state. More importantly, this is the fictitiousness of quality control itself. If you think that the modern institute of military receivers is a panacea, then you are a naive person. In the current realities of the shortage of highly qualified personnel and local corruption, even just launching high-tech production, the quality of which would have no complaints - a great achievement. And when it is also necessary to change imported equipment to your own (one that hitherto had not existed in nature), the task becomes so complicated that I would ask what kind of enterprise and what kind of equipment it imported?
