Large Caliber Sniper Rifle - VKS "Vykhlop"

Large Caliber Sniper Rifle - VKS "Vykhlop"
This is a silenced sniper rifle VSS "Vintorez" (a thred cutter). It fires special 9mm sniper cartridges. And it allows silent liquidation of targets protected by light bulletproof vests. Meanwhile the rifle shoots so quietly, that the enemy won't ever understand where the lethal lead came from. The VSS has only one disadvantage - short range of fire, not more than 400m.

This one is the OSV-96. It's caliber is 12.7mm. Sniper can hit targets more than 1.5km away with this rifle. While at shorter distances its super-powerful round allows destruction of light armored vehicles. But its shot is extremely loud. The sound and barrel flash unmask the shooter. But what to do if a super-powerful cartridge, long range of fire and sound suppression need to be combinded, meanwhile removing all the disadvantages? Specialists of Tula Instrument Design Bureau are ready to offer a solution. Our film crew got an unique opportunity today to meet the newest Russian suppressed 12.7mm caliber VKS sniper rifle. There is nothing like this super-weapon in the World today.

Silenced large-caliber 12.7mm sniper rifle VKS was developed in 2002 especially for SPETSNAZ Center of Russian FSB. This is a standard 7.62mm cartridge. While this one is an aemor-pircing 12.7mm caliber round for VKS rifle. Its bullet is many times heavier than a regular one and it has a huge stopping power and it can penetrate 16mm thick steel sheet at range of 250m. Entire family of totally new 12.7x55mm rounds was developed especially for the VKS. High-accuracy rounds and high power rounds are some of them. For the example, this Tula's super-weapon can hit enemy,s armored personnel carrier 200m away, to destroy communication devices like antennas or to set a radar station out of order. Even a wall won't save anyone from the VKS. One meter thick wood or 15 thick brick... everything will be turned to pieces after impact of armor-piercing round.

Even if a man is located behind a wall. There were cases when snipers were shooting at an estimated location of the enemy, and they were getting them. Either he had a bulletproof vest, either he hadn't - there is no difference. The bullet will pass right through. If a sniper armed with VKS needs to make a shot upon targets located too far away, then he can use special sniper rounds. They can reach the enemy at distances more than 1.5km. Let's put it this way. If round will hit body extremities, like an arm f.e., then it will be torn out. If the round will hit a leg, then depending where exactly it will hit, a leg also will be amputated... same with arm. That's if round hits extremities. If it hits torso, then it leaves quite a big hole in it. And it doesn't matter what kind of vest the target is wearing. The round will fly right through anything. The hole is big. It leads to an instant fatal outcome. Surviving such wound... no way.

VKS rifle fires special subsonic 12.7mm caliber rounds. Thank to these rounds and it's effective auppressor, it is possible to use it indoors even without special ear protectors. We would literally become deaf if we like to fire any other large-caliber weapon here. The sound of VKS's shot will be virtually indistinguishable in open terrain. That means a criminal will never know where the round came from and sniper will remain undetected for the enemy. Majority of large-caliber sniper rifle have two disadvantages - long length, about 1.5m and they are not light more than 10kg. However VKS is unique even in this field thus surpassing its large-caliber colleagues in every single aspect.

The VKS rifle has a bullpump layout. In such a layout, the magazine isn't located in front of the grip but behind it. This fact allows shortening weapon's dimensions significantly. But that's not all. Thanks to manual reloading of the rifle, designers got rid of complex automation system, and this fact in its turn, allowed to make VKS incredibly light. Tula's long-range puncher, with its suppressor and loaded magazine attached weights only 7kg. That means that a sniper armed with this rifle will move much easier and he will save strengths to accomplish his mission.

VKS is an unique sniper rifle. No other firearm combines a long range of fire, super-powerful munitions and lack of unmasking factors. Tula designers created an absolute weapon which is feared by terrorists and envied by Western Special Forces.

The "Vykhlop" (an exhaust) rifle was proved so successful that a special large-caliber assault rifle is being already developed on its basis. We sure will present that unique weapon to you, as soos as "Top Secret" label will be taken off it. 12.7mm assault rifle has already been created. It's an ASH-12. ASH-12 with a triple under-barrel grenade launcher.
