"Boer" – compact reusable rocket launcher


		«Boer» - compact reusable rocket launcher

"Boer" (launcher) - promising Russian small reusable launcher, developed by the Tula Instrument Design Bureau, based jet infantry flame thrower "Bumblebee", to enhance the combat capabilities of mechanized infantry, Airborne and other units. AT 2014 he was adopted by the Russian Army.

launcher “Boer” able to significantly increase the firepower and simplify some tasks. This system has a number of characteristics, by which to achieve high combat characteristics and a significant reduction in weight and dimensions.

Development of the "Boer" project was carried out in the Tula Instrument Design Bureau. The objective of this project was a deep modernization of the existing jet infantry flamethrower RPO "Bumblebee" with the greatest possible design change, aimed at achieving the lowest possible size and weight of the product. In particular, combat-ready weight of the grenade should not exceed 5 kg. for comparison, "Bumblebee" system, depending on the modification, weighs 9-11 kg. Despite its small size, grenade "Bor" should be able to engage manpower, unprotected and lightly armored vehicles, as well as a variety of shelters and structures.

Main components of CIM Boer: transport and launch container (TPK), starting device (PU) and riflescope (WHOP)

AT 2013 KBP year for the first time demonstrated its new development in the course of the exhibition "Interpolitex". This development has interested potential customers, but also attracted the attention of defense industry enterprises. According to reports, shortly after the first show, it was decided to develop a new sighting devices for grenade, which was to take place the Belarusian industry. AT 2014 year "Bor" system was first shown at foreign exhibitions.

At the heart of "Bor" project are a few basic ideas, We have found application in a number of previous similar systems projects. Wherein, by proper application of ideas and solutions achieved a significant reduction in size and weight, while maintaining the required combat performance. As a result, the overall length of the product in the firing position is only 742 mm, and the weight does not exceed 4,8 kg.

The draft "drill" used for modern traditional grenade layout with separation of the complex to transport and launch container with munition and trigger. TPK is disposable, whereas after firing trigger is separated and can be used for shooting a new munition. Besides, starting device equipped with an additional sighting equipment. Offered several types of instruments, different purpose and characteristics.

Starting device grenade Boer

Starting device "Bor" complex is a T-shaped piece with a pistol grip and the gun fire control. The device has a trigger mechanism for launching grenades, as well as a fuse and some other systems, including mounts for mounting on TPK and strap mount the desired type of sight. operation control trigger device carried by means of the trigger and check boxes on the side surface of the housing. With their help, grenade launcher can carry out fire, and lock mechanisms to prevent abnormal shot.
For aiming a grenade launcher sights are encouraged to use the three types of. Together with our Belarusian colleagues KBP has developed a telescopic sight for shooting day, optical night sight, as well as a thermal imaging system. With their help, a fighter can seek and engage targets at any time of day and in any weather conditions. The "Bor" depending on the type of launcher sight is able to shoot at targets at ranges up to 950 m.

The complex "Bor", there are two possible unified grenades of different functions. Both variants of ammunition at the factory are placed inside a glass-fiber transport and launch container with an inner diameter 62 mm. The container is a tube with sealed caps on both ends. On the lower part there TPK mountings for the trigger device. The container is the longest element of the complex. Weight TPK with a grenade - 3,5 kg. TPC is intended to protect the grenade from external influences during storage and transport, and serves as a guide to start. The container is designed as a disposable article. After firing it should be separated from the trigger and throw.
Inside TPK placed rocket-propelled grenade with a cylindrical body and a hemispherical head part. In the tail section grenades provides the plumage of the four stabilizers, disclosed after exiting TPK. stabilizers design as simple as possible. They represent a plate of steel alloy and disclosed by the elasticity of the material. Due to the setting angle of the stabilizer feathers create twisting moment, stabilizing a grenade in flight.

For use with grenade "Bor" The complex offers a special bag-backpack, designed for the transportation of essential goods. The bag has compartments for mounting and carrying the trigger device, sight and three freight containers grenade launchers. Due to its small size and weight of products carrying the bag with all the necessary systems can be carried by one person.
By proper selection of materials and design optimization managed to bring the resources of individual components of the complex to a high level. So, starting device may be used for a long time, because it has the opportunity to perform 500 shots.
Thermobaric warhead of one of the rounds for a grenade launcher "Bor" has the power, equivalent 6 kg of TNT. In this way, in terms of power and combat effectiveness of the grenade close to some artillery shells significantly larger caliber. Wherein, but, rocket-propelled grenade at their perforating and fragmentation is significantly inferior artillery shells, but that is not required by small arms.

Small size and weight allow one fighter to carry the entire grenade launcher with ammunition. Besides, there is a possibility of landing and the free movement of cross country. The deployment of a complex of transport in the firing position requires a minimum time, after which the fighter is able to attack with a goal at a distance of several hundred meters. Depending on the type of target, thrower may choose the most suitable variant of the munition.
To prepare the grenade specialists KBP has developed an electronic training device type CC-62T. It consists of a set of specialized electronic equipment several grenade simulators, screen and other systems. The simulator deployed in any suitable room, after which the fighters get the opportunity to start training in the use of weapons to defeat different purposes in different environments.

According to reports, grenade "Bor" went into production as early as 2014 year. At the same time there were reports of the imminent adoption of the system adopted Russian. About two years, in June 2016, there were news, according to which the grenade launcher was adopted by the special units of the armed forces and troops of the National Guard. Timing of deliveries of new weapons is not specified. probably, the first production models of the weapons have already been tested in combat units, and in the near future will begin full-scale supply of new systems.
