No of course not, I was just curious. If you can translate something from Russian to English for me I would be very grateful.

Let's all take a trip back to the late 1970s and early 1980s.  This was the time of punk.  This was the time of despair.   Punk was all about minimalism; strip everything down to a few chords, wear

Stechkin's Abakan (TKB-0146). https://www.kalashnikov.ru/abakan-stechkina-avtomat-stechkina-tkb-0146/        Bullpup, system of "recoil impulse shifted in time", 2-stage

So what, my 5.56 rounds are groundbreaking too if I shoot the dirt.

There are more Russians on this forum than on Brighton Beach)))

It is strange that you ask for this precisely me. This is such a small exam on the knowledge of the English language?))

If the text is small, I certainly am ready to help you.

Effect of US sanctions on our small arms makers:



“In general, due to sanctions, domestic producers lose about 10 billion rubles in revenue a year. It is easy to calculate what amount approximately is obtained for all five years of sanctions, ” RBC quotes Abramov. In his opinion, in order to compensate for the losses of Russian enterprises, it is necessary to restructure the entire industry. “The industry is fragmented, it does not develop, the situation can be called a crisis,” adds Abramov.

“Within the framework of the OKR "Ratnik", two new catridges were created: 7N39 and 7N40. One with increased accuracy, the second one has increased armor-piercing effect,” Nekrasov said. The designer of the equipment specified that “the new 7H39 cartridge pierces the armor plate of the 2P brand by 50-70 m, and the 7H40 increased accuracy by more than 1.5 times compared to the standard one”.

      There are many who feel that the 5.56 NATO is a superlative rifle round. Much has been said about larger alternatives to 5.56, such as various 6.5mm and 6.8mm rounds among others. Less has been said about smaller rounds. Off the top of my head, I can recall that there was a German 4.6x36mm round, used in the HK36, and the British 4.85x49mm round. Neither of these rounds managed to gain widespread acceptance. My knowledge of the voodoo that is ballistics is somewhat limited, so I'm uncertain as to whether these failures were caused by flaws with the rounds themselves, or because they were below some lower limit of effective bullet size, beyond which performance decreases rapidly. Could we see a resurgence of these concepts in the future, or do they represent an evolutionary dead-end?
