  • MBD3-U6-68-1 multi-beam stringer;
  • sights and photo-control devices;
  • crates and containers for the storage and transport of air warfare agents.

At the laboratory, students learn the construction and principles of the operation
and storage of bombs and fuses for air bombs, along with the servicing of technical sights and photo-control devices. Furthermore they learn the preparation of ammunition belts for cannons and machine guns, storage methods and principles of transport of air combat agents as well as technical reviews and preparation for arming (combat agents for combat use).

 

Training System for Small Arms "ŚNIEŻNIK - 1"

The ŚNIEŻNIK - 1  training system is intended for simulated shooting at the shooting range by an individual soldier. Training situations are transmitted by video projectors onto a large-format screen in the form of a flat image with an authentic sound.

Trainees simulate shooting with the use of selected weapons from a distance of about 8 meters from the screen. Training situations are created by the system operator according to the current training needs. The training weapon is designed on the basis of a real combat weapon using laser modules and pneumatic systems,
and the ballistic characteristic of ammunition corresponding to authentic types of ammunition and weapon patterns.

The whole system consists of an operator station and five shooting stands from which cadets can practice shooting. The simulator includes the following types
of weapons:

  • 7.62 mm AKMS assault rifle (modernised Kalashnikov automatic rifle),
  • 7.62 mm PKM machine gun,
  • 5.56 mm assault rifle model 1996 "Beryl" with the PCS-5M/1 sight,
  • 9 mm machine gun model 1998.
