Over the last few years 3D printing has made a big step forward: now, this technology helps to quickly treat serious injuries to the bones and to restore human bodies , even without forming the base. But as you are fully printed on 3D-printer tank?
The Fifth International military-technical forum “Army-2019” the company “Uralvagonzavod” will produce the latest Russian tank T-90MS completely with the help of 3D printing, writes “Interfax”. The developers promise an exact copy of gun machine (with the exception only that the fire she won’t be able). Although it would be funny.
The current version of the T-90MS is equipped with a new dynamic protection of third generation, with which it is possible to protect from all sides. Through the use of turbo tank accelerates quickly, and the engine and transmission are synchronized using a special computerized complex. Now this is one of the breakthrough developments in the field of Russian tank development.
In 2012, enthusiasts were able to create the first available for printing 3D-arms. Rifle called Wiki Weapon consists of 12 parts. Throughout the construction of the Wiki Weapon there is only one metal part – the firing pin, everything else can be printed from ABS plastic. However, at the same time, the government decided to impose restrictions on the use of 3D printers, to prevent “dangerous” weapons.
In early June it became known that the US opens the first factory for Autonomous 3D printing space rockets. Using a 3D printing technology company Relativity wants to reduce the number of missile parts from 100 000 to 1 000. The agreement with the U.S. air force to launch such missiles was received in early 2019. So advanced use of 3D printing for military purposes is just a matter of time.
There is only one thing — a gun entirely made of plastic, will be invisible to metal detectors. And it is unlikely it will be safe. What do you think about it? Write in our Telegram chat.
