Russian military laboratory will test extreme weapons again

MOSCOW, (BM) – Russian military laboratory will test extreme weapons again, learned BulgarianMilitary.com citing a source from the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation and the Russian news agency Vzglyad.

“The revival of the laboratory allows us to test weapons in unique natural conditions, without leaving the complex,” said military expert Viktor Murakhovsky. So he commented on the message about the restoration of the Soviet unique laboratory by Rostec for extreme tests of a grenade launcher and small-caliber small arms and cannon weapons.

“To reproduce in natural climatic conditions what was done in this laboratory, you need to travel a lot around the country in search of special natural phenomena that cannot always be found,” explained Viktor Murakhovsky, editor of the Arsenal of the Fatherland magazine.

The expert positively assessed the restoration of the unique laboratory and called it “a return to the roots.” “Our military-industrial complex had such laboratories before, but they could not be used for all models and types of weapons,” the source added.

“Besides, Soviet weapons were previously famous for their ability to work in any conditions – physical, geographical, weather, climatic. Now this reputation will strengthen even more,” Murakhovsky is convinced.

Earlier it became known that the Central Scientific Research Institute of Precision Engineering [TsNIITOCHMASH] has restored the work of a unique laboratory closed after the USSR collapsed.

“Weapons testing and certification are performed in the laboratory and the test site. The laboratory also has test chambers for testing small arms, grenade launchers, and small arms. The tests are performing at extreme temperatures – from minus 60 degrees Celsius to plus 60 degrees Celsius. The equipment in the laboratory also performs various dust tests,” it is said in the official press release of the company, quoted by RIA Novosti.

“The certification was the final technical stage in restoring the unique testing technology lost after the collapse of the USSR, which was owned only by our institute,” said Sergei Karasev, head of the scientific and technical center for testing and experimental research of weapons.

At the end of November, the airborne self-propelled artillery unit “Lotos,” developed at TsNIITOCHMASH for the Airborne Forces on the chassis of the BMD-4M airborne assault vehicle, completed acceptance tests.
