Use of the Bumblebee-A flamethrower (video)

46
TV channel Zvezda unveiled a video from the teachings of the flame-throwing unit, which demonstrated the use of RPO "Bumblebee-A", reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta.




The “Bumblebee-A” infantry flamethrower is a meter tube with a missile inside. The rocket charge is thermobaric. It creates an aerosol cloud of explosive at the target point, which ignites simultaneously. The temperature in the explosion zone reaches three thousand degrees, ”the newspaper writes.

In addition, the explosion burns atmospheric oxygen, which leads to a sharp decrease in pressure in a closed volume (the enemy’s house or other shelter).

"If the enemy hid in a long-term firing point and she has a hole - an embrasure, a window, etc. - it is enough to get into it with the “Bumblebee” charge, everything living inside will be destroyed by high temperature and excessive pressure, ”said company commander Yevgeny Spitsyn.

        But I stopped watching "Military Acceptance" because of the presenter. The very concept of submitting information by a civilian with sighs and sighs and other things, it is certainly good for an average person from 7 to 12. But forgive children and young people who are already over they are less interested in military equipment and maybe even understand something, except that they will not look at this clown with a smile. Technique tests at the proving ground are sometimes so funny, and the voice itself, its hysterical roar, is simply annoying. Not fun to watch. It is necessary to try to change the leader, even if it is civil, but with a different style.

      In the second Chechen part of the Gilaev gang, they hid in a cave. After the "Bumblebee" hit, 19 shaitans were pulled out of there.

        It's just that in another video the same "Bumblebee" entered a concrete structure, so there the floor slab jumped like a downy one, this is the effect, but here it is somehow rather weak for demonstration (but this is my personal opinion)

      This is not a grenade launcher. For her, it’s serious, even in a white light, like a pretty penny, but preferably in an enclosed space, such as kyariz, caves or rooms. I mean bumblebee-A. Effect, it is better not to see if too squeamish.

    Great thing, our developments in the military-industrial complex are still a step higher than the western ones, it’s a pity that only a little and not fast enough are the troops coming in - after all, what year is the bumblebee developed?

    Although this weapon is at least 20 years old, it looks fresh. RPO "Bumblebee" and in the 1st and 2nd Chechen campaigns were successfully used. Such shots should be shown periodically. The adversaries must be in good shape.

      Excessive pressure builds up. outside Bunker due to burnout of oxygen from within.

        Does the staff manage to jump out of the bunker? Well, where is the excess, or does it die from the vacuum at minus 10 atmospheres?
        There can be no negative gas pressure! Consequently, the pressure situation during "oxygen burnout" cannot be worse than any residual pressure for anyone! This corresponds to an explosive depressurization in an airplane at a certain altitude. At the same time, people feel very bad, but, as a rule, they do not die from this!
        But in fact, it was necessary to learn the law of conservation, remember - If somewhere something diminishes, etc. According to stoichiometric ratios, the volume of combustion products is 15-20 times greater than the volume of "burned" oxygen. Where does the vacuum come from? And where will the excess pressure come from outside?

    Journalists are Losers - that's for sure. Where did the term "Vacuum Bomb" come from? Well, there is no vacuum there. For that matter, the discharge zone moves behind the shock front of ANY explosion.
    And I like the mini Bumblebee much more. Nicknamed "Boer". Much less overall, but no less evil.

    And if on its basis to make a volley fire system at the base outside the road ... pipes so on 8-10.
    Range at Bumblebee-M ... something up to 1700 m.
    And in a gulp to cover the object ... and so already good damaging factors will add the Carnot effect, the imposition of shock waves ... that will be a local Armagedon, similar to the application ... mini Pinocchio.

      Even if it is only with specialists, the danger of falling into the wrong hands is inevitable. Do not set on it the "master qualifier" and "good" for self-destruction. And the Bumblebee can do trouble. But he is needed - no options.

    Explosion at 0:50 staged; behind the dove wall, in addition to tires, most likely, there was a barrel with fuels and lubricants. How the "Bumblebee" really explodes can be seen at 1:05: a small white cloud without a source of powerful combustion.
    No one has any questions that the flamethrowers in our OShS are part of the RChBZ troops? Anyone who served in the motorized rifle saw / held this "Bumblebee"?
