Russia’s KBP Instruments Design Bureau has developed world’s smallest reusable BUR grenade launcher.
Grenade launcher is believed to solve a wide class of military problems. The total length of the complex is 742 mm and the weight of the device in the equipment with the grenade does not exceed 3500 gram, according to Rostec press release.
According to the KBP Instruments Design Bureau in the Russian city of Tula, developers were tasked with creating the lightest grenade launcher in the world, something that can allow soldiers to conduct military operations at any time of day or night.
The technical characteristics of BUR are: Caliber-62 mm, Maximum effective range -650 meters, Overall range-950-metres and Operating temperature range – from minus 40 to plus 55 °С.
The KBP MGK "Bur" system consists of two components: the launch unit and the self-contained rocket tube. The polymer-made launch unit integrates a pistol grip, a trigger with a manual safety, a ribbed handguard, and a mounting bracket for Russian-type day and night sights such as optical sights, thermal or infrared sighting units, laser rangefinder, and such. Optical sighting units can be attached to the launch unit with a quick-detach bracket.
The National Guard and special operations forces of the Ministry of Defense of Russia recently conducted a successful test of the weapon and it has been taken into service.
