Popular Mechanics: A new Russian sniper rifle — silent and killing


The last option of the Russian MTs-116M sniper rifle adapted under a silent cartridge of caliber 12,7 millimeters — one of the most killing in the world according to the American magazine Popular Mechanics. This weapon has at the same time noiselessness and lethal penetrative power. The initial version of a rifle calculated on city conditions has been developed in 1997. The advanced version shown at a forum "Army-2018" has essentially other properties. As notes the edition, the Russian armorers have coped with extremely difficult task — have achieved noiselessness from weapon of caliber of 12,7 mm. At the same time the rifle can shoot a high-class bullet-proof vest at distance to 300 m due to weight of the bullet filling the low speed and weak power of a shot. In Popular Mechanics consider that this weapon can form a basis for the whole generation of silent firearms, and Russia has confirmed a rank of the world leader in his development.
