Проект: Equipment and armament: yesterday, today and prospect

The Soviet weapon has a reputation of reliable, but coarse and inaccurate. However, it often cost an extensive research. The report in 1979, entitled "Effects of fire from automatic weapons", describes the statistical methodology used for weapons testing during the Soviet era. There are also many tables of firings, starting in 1977, which compares the accuracy of different samples infantry weapons. In tests using various weapons involved both experienced and average soldiers, shooting from different positions, including shooting from moving vehicles at night and even return fire against the muzzle flashes in the dark. These tests helped bring the average number of shots required to defeat or destroy a number of targets, including helicopters, vehicles and personnel of the enemy.

The country celebrated the anniversary of withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan. In this regard, I want to focus on one of the Afghan lessons.

Проект: Equipment and armament: yesterday, today and prospect

In contrast to the older MiG-21, operating the MiG-25 remains very small. Most of them are in the air force of Algeria and the Syrian Arab Republic, although in recent years there have been reports that the MiG-25 returned to service in Libya. Most of the "flying foxes" was decommissioned shortly after the collapse of the Soviet Union, and some remained for some time in the air force of the former Soviet republics. Iraqi MiG-25 was mostly destroyed during the war in the Persian Gulf, and those that remained were destroyed in the operation "desert Storm".
