Russia’s largest designer and manufacturer of small-caliber ammunition for the Armed Forces, NPO “Pribor”, developed new 30-mm armor-piercing ammunition for the air defense systems of the Russian Navy ships, Chief Designer of “Pribor” Oleg Chizhevsky told RIA Novosti on Thursday.

According to him, the system of air and anti-missile defense of the nearest boundaries of most Navy ships is based on 30-mm six-barrel machine guns. These complexes will also be equipped with new generation ammunition with plastic pull units adopted about five years ago.

Application of cartridges with ammunition fitted with plastic pull units enhances performance of air systems by increasing barrel life and efficient use of ammo.
