30 Aug 19. Turkish ‘Zero-Recoil’ Weapon Device – Video & Info. Turkish engineers have developed a weapon apparatus that reduces gun recoil, or kickback in weapons, including guns mounted on drones, to zero while doubling the speed, range, and impact of bullets. Turkish conglomerate Albayraklar Holding, which developed the “real zero-recoil” apparatus, has just released this video and press release providing more information.
The multi functional WATTOZZ T61 maximizes the muzzle velocity and effective range of standard NATO cartridges and eliminates sound while preventing recoil for any kind of long or short barreled guns (Rifles/Pistols).
None of the recoil reduction systems available in the world, such as special silencers and suppressors, recoil compensators, muzzle brakes, flash hiders etc. (despite using bullets under the velocity of sound which are described as subsonic or using bullets with reduced gunpowder ratios) cannot effectively prevent recoil.
WATTOZZ T61 suppresses the sound of the gun.
Such existing silencers in the world slowdown the muzzle velocity while the WATTOZZ T61 maximizes. WATTOZZ T61 is more successfull than any other gun silencers. (silencing sound at lesser decibel levels than any other gun silencer).
The recoil in the pistols is much more difficult to manage than the recoil in the rifles. The reason why the recoil rate of the rifle that you manage with your hands and shoulder is less than the pistol depends on the balanced weight of the rifle. This is why long-barreled guns feel less recoil than a pistol when firing with a similar ammunition. A shorter barrel means more recoil, because the explosion that occurs when the projectile exits the barrel is closer to the rest of the gun and therefore to the shooter.
As well as superior success in rifles, WATTOZZ T61 is the only system in the world which eliminates recoil with supersonic cartridges in pistols. At the same time WATTOZZ T61 increases muzzle velocity and effective range so the pistols will become highly effective rifles.
WATTOZZ T61 system can be applied to any type of long or short barrelled guns (rifles and pistols) and it is a system suitable almost all types of ammunition. Some types of rounds compatible with WATTOZZ T61:
22 LR – 6.35 – 7.65 – 9.17 – 9.19 – 5.45 – 5.7 NATO – 5.56 NATO – 7.62 NATO
THE NEW REVOLUTION IN MILITARY DRONES
There is no doubt that drones (UAV) will be of great importance in future defense systems. The countries have already begun to build drone armies. Most of them are described as Ghost Drones Herds, and these drones can not detected on the radars or devices called drone hunters.
Today, works are carried out on the armaments of drones with billion dollar budgets, but at this point despite the large and heavy shock-absorbing suspension mechanisms established under the Drone to prevent recoil they are no capable of eliminating recoil. Therefore, it makes hitting the target while shooting consecutively impossible.
Another disadvantage of these stabilization mechanisms is that they hold the guns fixed in only one direction; therefore they can only fire in the direction of the drone.
Thanks to WATTOZZ T61 which is the first and unique in the world that can be applied to all kinds of guns; unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) mounted with firearms will not need such mechanisms. WATTOZZ T61 can be used on the smallest of military & law enforcement drones, eliminating the need to install large and heavy shock-absorbing suspension mechanisms under a drone. Thus, Drone guns can be controlled 3-axis and allowing them to fire in the desired direction. Also consecutively fire is only possible with WATTOZZ T61. (Source: UAS VISION)
29 Aug 19. Northrop Grumman Intercepts Missile at Long Range During Flight Test. The U.S. Army and Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) successfully intercepted a cruise missile at an extended range during today’s flight test using the Army Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) Battle Command System (IBCS) with Sentinel and Patriot radars and a Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) interceptor. The flight test demonstrated the value of IBCS to detect, track and engage the low-flying threat at a distance well beyond the range limitation of the current Patriot system.
During a flight test, the U.S. Army and Northrop Grumman successfully intercepted a cruise missile at an extended range using the Army Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) Battle Command System (IBCS) with Sentinel and Patriot radars and a Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) interceptor. The flight test demonstrated the value of IBCS to detect, track and engage the low-flying threat at a distance well beyond the range limitation of the current Patriot system.
“This is an important event proving IBCS ability to enable next-generation concepts such as ‘engage-on-net,’” said Dan Verwiel, vice president and general manager, missile defense and protective systems, Northrop Grumman. “This flight test also shows how IBCS ‘extends the battlespace’ to allow ‘shoot-look-shoot’ opportunities, maximizing the probability of destroying the threat, which is critical as threats increase in sophistication.
“The successful test – with IBCS in a near-operational environment – provides confidence IBCS is delivering transformational warfighting capabilities, including all the advantages of intercepting a threat close to its origin.”
The flight test was conducted at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, and began when a drone target, serving as a cruise missile surrogate, flew a low altitude trajectory against an asset defended by an Army IAMD task force. The defense consisted of battery and battalion IBCS engagement operations centers, a Patriot radar and two Sentinel radars, and two PAC-3 launchers connected at the component level to the IBCS integrated fire control network. Because the low altitude flight path of the target obscured it from the Patriot radar’s field of view, the IBCS correctly used measurement data from the Sentinel radars to form a composite track from which IBCS calculated and presented the engagement solution. The engagement operations center operator then commanded, via the IBCS mission control software, the launch of a single PAC-3 interceptor missile to destroy the target.
“The August flight test further demonstrates the critical role IBCS plays in integrating fires and sensors to defeat stressing threats,” said Maj. Gen. Rob Rasch, Army Program Executive Officer, Missiles and Space. “An IBCS-enabled Patriot battalion is currently in new equipment training, and soldiers will spend the coming months learning the system and executing their own simulated battles in collective training, before entering into operational testing and live fire exercises next summer. This week’s successful event validates the interoperability of the system and the maturity of the hardware and software design in support of ongoing soldier training and testing.”
IBCS is a paradigm shift for IAMD by replacing legacy stove-piped systems with a next-generation, net-centric approach to better address an evolving array of threats. The system integrates disparate radars and weapons to construct a far more effective IAMD enterprise. IBCS delivers a single integrated air picture with unprecedented accuracy as well as broader surveillance and protection areas. With its truly open systems architecture, IBCS allows incorporation of current and future sensors and effectors and enables interoperability with joint C2 and the ballistic missile defense system.
IBCS is managed by the U.S. Army Program Executive Office for Missiles and Space, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama.
28 Aug 19. Russia-India BrahMos JV May Start Next-Generation Cruise Missile’s Tests In 4-5 Years. The next-generation BrahMos-NG cruise missile may enter trials in four to five years, Indian Co-Director of the Russia-India BrahMos Aerospace Joint Venture Sudhir Kumar Mishra told TASS at the MAKS-2019 international aerospace show on Wednesday.
“It will take us four-five years to start trials of this missile,” Mishra said.
Now the missile is at the initial stage of its development, he noted. “We have already reached a good level for making the ramjet engine for it. We are conducting our work without any haste.”
The Indian co-director of BrahMos Aerospace earlier told TASS that his company had plans to develop a hypersonic ramjet engine for the BrahMos missile. The use of new materials and other improvements will also help boost its speed to Mach 4.8, he specified.
The BrahMos supersonic missile with a flight range of 290 km is currently operational in the Indian Army and Navy. The missile’s air-launched modification has also been developed. The development of the BrahMos hypersonic cruise missile will take at least seven-eight years, Mishra said.
“I believe the hypersonic BrahMos will appear no sooner than seven to eight years,” he noted.
The work on the hypersonic technology is proceeding jointly with the Russian partners – the Research and Production association of Machine-Building and Moscow Aviation Institute, as well as with Indian research institutes, he said.
The basic research is related to the problem of protecting the missile’s internal compartments from high temperatures that some parts of the design get at a hypersonic speed, he explained.
“We hope that we will find solutions to these problems,” he said.
The PJ-10 BrahMos is a supersonic cruise missile developed jointly by the Reutov-based Research and Production Association of Machine-Building (the Moscow Region) and India’s Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO). The PJ-BrahMos is a modification of the Soviet anti-ship missile Oniks. The missile’s name comes from the names of two rivers: the Brahmaputra of India and the Moskva of Russia. The missile’s first launch took place on June 12, 2001 from a coastal launcher. The missile’s production has been conducted in Russia and India.
The MAKS-2019 international aerospace show runs in the town of Zhukovsky outside Moscow on August 27 – September 1. The event’s organizers are Russia’s Industry and Trade Ministry and the state hi-tech corporation Rostec. A total of 827 companies from 33 countries are taking part in the aerospace show, including 184 foreign firms. (Source: defense-aerospace.com/TASS)
28 Aug 19. The Army has been soliciting design and manufacturing firms for a next-generation weapon platform. This NGSW program is expected to produce a replacement for the M16 battle-rifle and SAW machine gun. Along with the request for this all-new weapon, this project demands a new cartridge to be developed alongside and incorporated into these new battle rifles. The initial call-out for the program seeks to dramatically increase the terminal power and effective distance of the 5.56 NATO and even the 7.62 NATO. The performance of the new cartridge will rival the exterior and terminal ballistics of some current commercial magnum hunting cartridges. It seems a worthwhile endeavor to outfit each soldier with an 8lb rifle that can hit a 1 MOA hardened target, and penetrate that target up to and exceeding 1000 yards. If that’s not enough to impress, this new weapon will fulfill these requirements without compromising the control and handling characteristics currently accepted in the M16 and SAW light machine gun.
MARS, INC of Montana teamed up with Cobalt Kinetics of Utah early in 2019 to realize this seemingly-impossible task. The brain-trust of MARS approach the modern semi-auto rifle from a fresh perspective while Cobalt Kinetics’ skill and expertise at precision manufacturing made the idea a reality. The resulting weapon presents as an extra-large framed AR-patterned rifle- with a huge magazine well to accommodate the new cartridge. Inside the handguard one can identify a large recoil spring wrapped around the barrel- an essential part of any long-recoil operating system. For those unfamiliar with this type of mechanism, it’s not unlike your grandfather’s Browning Auto-5 shotgun. But make no mistake, this is not your grandfather’s battle rifle. The bolt and barrel, while locked, are allowed to travel freely within the action under the recoil impulse generated by the 6.8mm short magnum cartridge (the guns fire 140gr .270 caliber bullets at 3200FPS). This operating system causes a great deal of recoil energy to be spent and dissipated before the total recoiling mass delivers a blow to the shooter’s shoulder. Similar systems have been employed over the past few decades in some soviet rifle and machine-gun designs. This operation has been labeled as “shifted pulse recoil”. The recoil impulse is effectively distributed over time, while its speed is reduced by a spring and buffer system before the stroke is complete. The result is a slower and softer impulse to the shooter- more to the point- This rifle is as controllable and comfortable to shoot as the old low-impulse 5.56 platform, while doubling the effective distance and energy.
Besides reduced recoil, there are many other advantages of long-recoil semi-auto operation. No gas escapes the barrel into the action- this rifle, with full-auto capability, runs as clean as any bolt action. When operating with a suppressor, the long-recoil system actually runs more reliably and with less recoil that unsuppressed. Of course, the added mass slows down the barrel/bolt assembly but that extra mass and resultant momentum to the recoiling assembly help the system power through dirt and particulate that can foul other semi-auto mechanisms. And the addition of suppressor does not contribute to increases fouling in the action as the system operates so slowly (relative to DI or piston) the propellant gasses and powder-charge fallout have fully evacuated by the time the bolt unlocks and opens to eject and reload the weapon.
MARS and Cobalt have developed 2 versions of the “MARS” rifle. A 13” barreled lightweight carbine and an 18” barreled light machine gun have been supplied to the ARMY for testing and evaluation. Both are fed from proprietary 20 round box or 70 round drum magazines. Both are capable of semi and full-auto fire. The MARS rifles have been designed to incorporate the newest “smart” battlefield tech to keep the soldier connected and adaptable as battlefield tactics become more advanced. These technologies include a central power source to supply all peripheral accessories while tracking and displaying their performance and status. Light, illumination, direction of fire, total rounds fired between service intervals, ammunition supply in the magazine, and operating temperature can be tracked by a central command module on the gun. This information can be communicated to remote command to support the soldier of tomorrow.
Michael Merino, President and CEO of MARS Inc. adds: “I can’t think of a better collaboration in this industry. Our MARS rifle design, coupled with the innovative approach to rifle manufacturing of the Cobalt Kinetics team, has been incredible. We believe that we have a rifle design that meets the requirements of the Army’s ambitious NGSW program. We are excited to be part of evolution of military effectiveness. We also plan to release a commercially available version of this rifle, in the first few months of 2020.”

28 Aug 19. Yemeni rebels unveil ‘new’ SAM. The Yemeni rebel group Ansar Allah (Houthis) announced a supposedly indigenous air-defence system called the Fater-1 on 24 August, but the only components it displayed were surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) that appeared to be identical to the 3M9 used with the 2K12 Kub/Kvadrat (SA-6 ‘Gainful’) system. Developed by the Soviet Union in the 1960s, the 2K12 was in service with the Yemeni military before the current conflict began in 2015. US Central Command has previously confirmed that an SA-6 was responsible for downing an MQ-9 Reaper unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) over Yemen on 6 June. “The altitude of the engagement indicated an improvement over previous Houthi capability, which we assess was enabled by Iranian assistance,” it said in a statement.

On Aug. 21, 2017, Northrop Grumman was one of two companies awarded a Technology Maturation and Risk Reduction contract for the new GBSD weapon system program. The Air Force released a request for proposals for the next phase of the program in July 2019 and announced it expected final award in the third quarter of 2020.
27 Aug 19. Russia delivers another S-400 battery to Turkey – Ifax. Russia delivered another battery of Russian S-400 missile defences on Tuesday, Interfax news agency cited President Vladimir Putin as saying.
“By the way, another delivery was made this morning,” Putin told Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, who was on a visit to Russia.
Turkey’s Defence Ministry said that the delivery of a second battery of S-400 defence system had started as of Tuesday and that it would take around one month.(Source: Reuters)
27 Aug 19. North Korea test-fires new ‘super-large’ multiple rocket launcher. North Korea’s new weapon system is fitted with four launch tubes that can fire what appear to be large-calibre guided-artillery rockets. North Korea announced on 25 August that it successfully test-fired what it described as a “newly developed, super-large multiple rocket launcher [MRL]” the previous day: the Northeast Asian country’s seventh weapon test within a month and a further indication that it continues to modernise its tactical weapon systems.
Pyongyang’s state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported that the test-firing “proved that all the tactical and technological specifications of the system correctly reached the preset indexes”.
Images of the test launch released by KCNA show an 8×8 transporter-erector-launcher (TEL) vehicle fitted with four launch tubes at what appears to be an airport runway. One of the images shows a large-calibre projectile being launched that seems to have four small control surfaces on its nose: a feature seen on guided-artillery rockets used in North Korea and other countries. The calibre of the projectile shown in the image appears to be larger than 370mm.
The KCNA did not provide further details about the new system, quoting only North Korean leader Kim Jong-un as praising the country’s national defence scientists for being “so clever as to conceive out of their own heads and design and complete the weapon system at one go-off, although they have never seen it”.
Kim was also quoted as underscoring “the need to push ahead with an ‘indomitable offensive campaign’ to put our strength onto the level desired by us to continue to step up the development of Korean-style strategic and tactical weapons for resolutely frustrating the ever-mounting military threats and pressure offensive of the hostile forces”.
South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) had said the previous day that North Korea fired what appeared to be two “short-range ballistic missiles” (SRBMs) at 0645 h and 0702 h local time from an area near the eastern town of Sondok in the country’s South Hamgyong Province. (Source: IHS Jane’s)
26 Aug 19. The U.S. Navy awarded Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) a $190m low-rate initial production contract for ESSM Block 2 missiles featuring a new guidance system with a dual mode active and semi-active radar. This award follows the Navy’s decision to shift from development to production on the enhanced intermediate-range, surface-to-air missile, placing the Block 2 variant on track for initial operating capability in 2020.
The ESSM missile is the primary ship self-defense missile aboard Navy aircraft carriers and large deck amphibious assault ships. It is an integral component of the Navy’s layered area and ship self-defense capability for cruisers and destroyers.
“ESSM plays a critical role in protecting navy sailors worldwide and our international partners share our commitment to evolve this missile,” said Dr. Mitch Stevison, Raytheon Strategic and Naval Systems vice president.
ESSM is the foundation of several allied navies’ anti-ship missile defense efforts and is operational on almost 200 naval platforms worldwide. The ESSM program is a cooperative effort managed by a NATO-led consortium comprising 12 nations: Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Greece, The Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Turkey and the United States.
23 Aug 19. ReconRobotics enhances Throwbot 2 with stun grenade. ReconRobotics has partnered with Liberty Dynamic to introduce a flash-bang capability to the former’s Throwbot 2 unmanned ground vehicle (UGV).
The Throwbot 2 is a throwable microbot system that provides operators with real-time video and audio reconnaissance of indoor and outdoor environments through a handheld controller/screen. The UGV utilises a ‘hooked flipper’ wheel system that enables it to clear obstacles of up to 5 cm and traverse a variety of terrain. The platform is designed to withstand drops of up to 9.1 m onto concrete and can be thrown horizontally up to 36 m, presuming an arc height of less than 9.1m. The system can transmit a 60° field of view (FoV) colour video at 30 fps, with one-way, listen-only audio, and is equipped with an infrared (IR) optical system that can illuminate up to 7.62m away. The IR optical system automatically activates in low ambient lighting conditions. The unit is dust-tight and water-resistant with ingress protection ratings of IP66 and IP67.
The Enhanced Diversionary Device (EDD) is a non-lethal, reusable flash-bang that is controlled by a microprocessor. Liberty Dynamic claims that the EDD, which was unveiled in January, is safer to use than standard stun grenades.
Various legacy stun grenades have chemical detonators, which tend to ignite too early. John Chapman, chief executive officer of Liberty Dynamic, told Jane’s.
“The M201A1 fuse commonly used in hand deployed devices such as a flash bangs have a published technical profile of 1.2 to 2 second time delay,” Chapman said. “The inconsistent 800m/s time deviation is the difference between a successful entry into a tactical situation or a mistimed room entry.”
The initial flash as well as the heat of the canister can ignite flammable materials. Chapman noted, “They can also cause fires and secondary fragmentation because they burn very hot and explode on the ground.” These explosions can also turn surrounding debris into shrapnel. (Source: IHS Jane’s)
23 Aug 19. Saab to support Australian Army’s air defence systems until 2022. Saab has been contracted to continue to support the Australian Army’s ground-based air defence (GBAD) and counter rocket, artillery and mortar (C-RAM) systems. Under the Skr184m ($19.05m) contract, Saab will provide support to the systems fielded by 16th Regiment, Royal Australian Artillery until 2022. The contract is intended to ensure the availability of the GBAD and C-RAM systems. Support will include systems such as Giraffe Agile Multi-Beam (AMB) radars and RBS-70 very short-range air defence (VSHORAD) weapon system produced by Saab.
Saab surveillance head Anders Carp said: “Long-term, top-class support is key to our offer and we look forward to continuing to help strengthen Australia’s GBAD and C-RAM capability with our expertise in complex integrated systems.”
The company’s Australian subsidiary upgraded the army’s short-range air defence system with the identification friend or foe (IFF) Mode 5 standard. The company integrated Giraffe AMB radar into the system and upgraded the missile firing posts and the tactical command and control system (TaCCS).
The Mode 5 capability allows ground-based air defence crews to operate confidently in complex operational environments.
The company will also support the IFF under the contract. The Australian Army is procuring Raytheon and Kongsberg-built National Advanced Surface to Air Missile System (NASAMS).
NASAMS will be the army’s principal air defence weapon. It will replace the existing short-range air defence capability, including the RBS-70 system. The government cleared the acquisition of NASAMS in March.
Saab Australia managing director Andy Keough said: “Our operations in Australia are going from strength to strength. We’re committed to our relationship with the Australian Army and to contributing to keeping people and assets safe by supporting our nations’ ground-based air defence capability.” (Source: army-technology.com)
