vara bungas: Baumas izrādījās pamatotas. DE AM apstiprina, ka G-36 noteiktos apstākļos (laikapstākļi, nepārtraukta šaušana u.c.) tiešām parādās significant izkliedes problēmas. H&K visu noliedz. Lai nu kā, bet netiešais pierādījums tam, ka Bundesvērs atteiksies no šī modeļa ir nesenais vairāku tūkstošu G36 eksemplāru dāvinājums kurdu Pešmerga Irākā. Tiešie pierādījumi būs vēlāk, kad tiks publicēts nu jau pēdējās ekspertīzes slēdziens. Pagaidām DE apturēti jauni G-36 iepirkumi.
Here’re the main conclusions from 372 pages long expert report on G36 rifle :
– The G36 gets hotter than any other comparable rifles, no matter which ammunition is used. This leads to inaccuracies even with low amounts of shots fired.
– Temperature changes partially significantly affect accuracy. Most prominently in the temperature range of 15°C – 45°C
– Changes between dry and moist environments lead to the same problems as the temperature changes, but manifest slower
– Direct sunlight on the sides of the rifle deforms parts of the housing, shifting the target point and thus accuracy
– Accuracy between various kinds of ammunitions differs up to 35% – but even the best ammo types still have an accuracy problem
Ar to es gribu teikt, kolēģi, ka gadījumā, ja kāds jums piedāvās pirkt vagonu ar jauniem G-36, neņemiet uzreizi, vismaz pakaulējaties. Ja atdos par velti, tad gan var ņemt. Vasaras mums ir “zaļās ziemas” IMHO 🙂

After months of investigation, the federal government has officially acknowledged massive problems with the accuracy of their standard G36 rifle. “The G36 apparently has a precision problem at high temperatures, but also in the hot shot condition,” said Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen (CDU). She relied on reviews from the experts who had examined, built by Heckler & Koch rifle after defect reports. According to a letter from Inspector General Volker Wieker to the commanders of the army rifle in operations in Afghanistan or about Mali will be used only to a limited extent. Von der Leyen not rule out that it is the medium completely withdrawn from the market.According to reviews, the precision limitations when G36 were significantly greater than in the examined comparison weapons, Wieker said. The G36 was thus clearly part of the problem and not just the ammunition or other factors. The defects were observed with all tested types of ammunition and deliveries.Heckler & Koch rejected the findings and criticized Defense Minister von der Leyen. The Bundeswehr is not communicating for about half a year to the topic with the company and have not even involved in the testing of the weapon, the company said. Subject before him no documents regarding the allegations. It therefore accept the findings of the Bundeswehr not.“The now widespread results diametrically opposed to the extensive and costly tests, the Heckler & Koch has been made in view of emerging rumors of an alleged serious slippage of the hot shot or heated due to weather weapon itself,” said Heckler & Koch. “These have a properly used no significant restrictions on the use of merchantability, especially in comparison to other assault rifles revealed.”
In recent years, there had been several conflicting reports about the accuracy of the G36. Then had a commission of experts of the Bundeswehr, the Federal Court and the Fraunhofer Institute used von der Leyen in early summer 2014 to provide clarity. Although the final report is still pending. Up to now the reviews but reported “in a clear direction,” said von der Leyen.
It was good that now subject many facts on the table. “Well, from today’s perspective, that was stopped in close agreement with Parliament in the summer of 2014, all other G36 procurement,” said the CDU politician. Once the final report of the expert vorliege, the Ministry will consider further consequences. “This includes the consider whether and to what extent the force must be fitted in the medium term with another assault rifle,” said von der Leyen.
G36 away to Peshmerga
In the next few days the Inspector General will now issue a directive to the troops in the field, how they are to continue to deal with the G36. With training and exercises the rifle should be used “for a transitional period.”
The Bundeswehr has bought since 1996 by Heckler & Koch G36 176,000. The assault rifle used in Afghanistan and Mali. However, the Bundeswehr does not use all the weapons themselves. Recently, several thousand G36 for example, were given away to the Kurdish Peshmerga forces in Iraq for their fight against the terrorist militia “Islamic State”.
The Greens called the admission of the problems a “worst case scenario” for the German Army “. The confidence of the troops in the line is again hit the list of disaster in the defense sector is so sensitive to a particular point any longer,” said the household and defense expert Tobias Lindner.
