"Doll" for the domestic defense industry from small business

31
Is the production of products related to weapons, the prerogative of the large defense industry enterprises? Does the modern small private business have the opportunity to at least get to the production of funds that can be useful in the military environment, withstanding competition with the giants? The answer to this question is directly related to how successful private small-business logistics is. Are there any lines at which small businesses look very competitive?


One of the positive examples of small business development in the considered environment is the business of producing armory accessories. We are talking about pouches, belts, knapsacks, cases for weapons, etc. The Izhevsk company Zastava, founded not so long ago, in 2008, is successfully working in this direction.

One of the most sought-after niches is the production of covers for various types of small arms. In particular, the “Doll” weapon covers are found in great demand. They are designed to carry automatic weapons with a folding butt and various versions of civilian weapons made on their base:
AKC machines,
AKMS machines,
automatic machines AKS74,
machines AK74M,
AK101, AK103 machines,
rifled carbines "Saiga-MK" caliber 7,62 and 5,56 mm,
smooth-bore carbines "Saiga-410K" isp. 01, 02,
air rifles "Junker-3", "Juncker-5".


"Doll" for the domestic defense industry from small business


Weapon covers "Doll" are made of a special material - cotton aviation tarpaulin (visitor), actively used, for example, for the manufacture of tourist equipment. The famous Soviet airborne assault pack RD-50 was made of the same material in the 54s.

One of the main advantages of the material is softness and the absence of a kind of rustling when moving. The main drawback is the need to impregnate to avoid getting wet. On the other hand, the weapon case is made from avizent and dries quickly enough.



Produces private enterprise and covers for small arms type AK (AKM) - with non-folding butt. This is a modification of the "Doll-N".



However, it should be noted that the share of small and microbusiness in the modern defense sphere of Russia is negligible in comparison, for example, with a similar share in Germany or the United States.

    And I think that no matter what enterprises working for the army and navy are - concerns, medium, small - let them work, if only there is benefit. And the organization of new jobs in times of crisis is no small matter.

    The fact is that no one has canceled secrecy.
    For example, you sew covers for tanks. For the T-90 alone, for the T-14 others are already needed. And by the number of orders it is immediately known how many of them are planned to be released. You don’t even need to spy on UVZ! Or another example: there are some details from the UK that we do not produce, but only we buy abroad: by the number of purchases, you can immediately say how many planes are planned to be produced. Etc.

      Yes, in general, the number of tanks and aircraft in the country is no longer the greatest secret. In addition, all this equipment is purchased not by the number of weapons, but with a large margin, so the numbers will be very approximate. And to count the number of small arms based on the number of cases purchased ... Well, God help this spy. A ward in "Kashchenko" is guaranteed to him.

      Covers and stuff for equipment are usually sewn at the enterprise manufacturing it, at the sewing site (workshop). On the side to give this to yourself is more expensive. Promptly resolve issues will not work, especially for new technology. I mean technology, not small arms.

    Well, what a good thing. And such covers are needed, but how many years will the question of changing the design of the belt for carrying weapons for AK be raised? Maybe a small business will finally be able to get it moving, something that "slips".

      Belts and methods are made different and useful, but they cost money. You don’t always buy salaries, but they don’t buy them centrally.

    There is no fundamental difference here who participates in the production process. In our overwhelming majority, small business (sitting on a financial trunk) is nothing more than a continuation of the kinship or "friendly" relationship between the customer and the manufacturer.

      In order to have a small business in the defense industry, you need to have a big paw in Rostec.

    However, it should be noted that the share of small and microbusiness in the modern defense sphere of Russia is negligible in comparison, for example, with a similar share in Germany or the United States.

    and I'm glad that this share is small. Not to mention secrecy, there is such a feature that is critically important for enterprises operating in the defense industry, namely the ability to dramatically increase output in conditions of war and mobilization.
    The German military industry stupidly crap before the USSR industry in the conditions of the Second World War, could not provide the Nazis with the necessary amount of equipment.
    In the conditions of war with an equal adversary, no one experienced US industry at all.

      ... Well, of course your joy has no limits .... gee-gee! But I personally feel sorry that in a country like Russia there is no place for small enterprises in big business! After all, it is understandable that great is born out of small .... the stories of B. Gates, S. Jobs are not impressive? Where do we have talents, minds ... left or?

    Dear, it’s absolutely true to those who need it that they release what they need, large companies are primarily complex technological lines and it is impossible to equal small businesses, but I have already written components that they issue, the question is more general why small business in Russia is very narrow the spectrum of the economy, why Chinese goods, cheaper than domestic ones, can impose sanctions on demand and give loans for the development of their industry, because there is just a lot of work for small businesses

      They call "small business" what we call "medium business". A modern sewing or shoe company is large enough and flexible enough. There is nothing like that. First of all, our Soviet seamstresses were caught in a shortage of material. Now this is not the case, and the same enterprises receive an assortment of fabrics and quietly sew white T-shirts for a couple of days, then black T-shirts for a couple of days. While the T-shirts are being sewn, the cutters give out T-shirt blanks. And there is no difficulty in this, in organizing the production of modern models. Also with shoes, Nike, Adidas, Reebok sneakers are sewn at the same factory in the same way. High-tech production, minimum manual labor. By the way, modern jackets and T-shirts and pants come from the army wardrobe. Now about 5 years old "military" clothes are in fashion, they are very practical. So you can sew everything and all this will be bought if the price-quality is normal. The same thing about weapons. A large plant may not produce traumatics, pneumatics and copies of real weapons, but simply supply handles and butts to a small enterprise, where they will use it for non-combat weapons.

    Can a small business provide the necessary supply? Which is better - one large order or a bunch of small ones scattered across small enterprises? I’m not sure that the US Army is supplied with small or medium-sized businesses - rather for PMCs, hunters and other shooters.

    One of the most sought-after niches is the production of covers for various types of small arms. In particular, the “Doll” weapon covers are found in great demand. They are designed to carry automatic weapons with a folding butt and various versions of civilian weapons made on their base:
    AKC machines,
    AKMS machines,
    automatic machines AKS74,
    machines AK74M,
    AK101, AK103 machines,
    rifled carbines "Saiga-MK" caliber 7,62 and 5,56 mm,
    smooth-bore carbines "Saiga-410K" isp. 01, 02,
    air rifles "Junker-3", "Juncker-5".

    How popular are covers for army machine guns? In a place of constant deployment, weapons are stored in pyramids - covers, it seems, are not needed. In the war zone, the usefulness of covers is also questionable.

    If the bald Khrushchev did not destroy the private sector of the USSR, there would be no questions. But just that it is small businesses that allow you to keep high quality, because they simply are not capable of VAL.

      You know, while serving in the GSVG, our unit received cartridges from the GDR, after which I can clearly say that we must not only "reinvent the wheel", but also be able to produce it in a timely manner and in large quantities ...

    Dear, you can write and argue about small business a lot, but you need to change the approach radically, otherwise dreams will remain in speech and on paper, to open a hairdresser is one thing, but to organize at least a small but production, this is another task and approaches should be different, here it is necessary to focus attention, split buy and sell, with really who is striving to establish something, especially if it is new or necessary, to help such people, groups, but for now I personally see a ghostly myth about small business, and loud speeches

    This direction takes place and even successfully found its niche under the sun. this is especially noticeable at the present time in Ukraine. Your humble servant had the honor to be present at one exhibition "volunteers to the front". This was the third exposition in a row. So, I can tell you that small private (and other forms of government) companies have very compositely fit into Ukrainian realities. Yes, the Ministry of Defense, with a creak, began to supply the army with something simple, without which (it turns out!) It's hard to live at the front! I have not been to Afghanistan, did not freeze in the trenches near Moscow, but in the current conditions the set of field uniforms "lives" at most for a couple of months. Then it is not even suitable for rags. And all the same - the American "cartoon", the Bundesian "fletarne" or the Ukrainian number 2. I generally keep quiet about shorts, T-shirts and socks ...
    So, I personally observed mass production by small enterprises: underwear, uniform sets, camouflage uniforms, knives, helmets, body armor plates, camouflage nets, backpacks, silencers for weapons, sleeping bags, energy soldering. I repeat - this is it. which is already in the series. Prices are lower than those at which the MO purchases. Quality is on the level. This is not an advertisement. This is what I saw with my own eyes.
    Logistics is a separate conversation. Often, the commanders of the AFU units work directly with volunteer organizations that deliver the required items in a matter of days, and sometimes hours. Do not believe? In 2014, one of the companies engaged in the informative industry developed software with calculations of artillery fire, tied to specific areas (you yourself understand which one). The tablets with the programs were dropped by parachuting to art divisions!
    Department of Defense's logistics are ossified, bureaucratic and corrupt. Everyone admits it. But it is not easier for a private on the battlefield to understand this. But survival is facilitated by a reliable backpack, a spare set of underwear and an energy bar in your pocket ... Which staff rats promise to give you a lift in the "near future" ...

    Of course, business could participate in military production. The main thing is that, as in 1939, there should be no complaints about the quality of shells manufactured in private factories.
