7.62x39mm CZ 807s in use by Egyptian Security Forces, Possible option to Manufacture in Egypt

Screen-Shot-2017-12-15-at-4.14.36-PM.png

Photographs of Egyptian Security Forces armed with 7.62x39mm CZ 807s have recently surfaced, thanks to the efforts of Egypt Defense Review and Mahmoud Gamal, both in-depth analysts of Egyptian defense programs. The 7.62x39mm rifles were recently seen in what appears to be a joint operation with Egyptian Paratroopers and Sa’ka special forces in Egypt. In 2013 we reported that a large contract with Česká zbrojovka Uherský Brod (CZ) had taken place wherein CZ P-07 handguns, Scorpions, and 5.56x45mm CZ 805s were purchased. From the images, at the time it would appear that this was a law enforcement program to Egyptian police forces separate from the defense forces. Now, from various sources online, it looks like Egypt is actually interested in manufacturing the 807 at home, purchasing a manufacturing license from CZ. This process appears to have picked up in May of this year, and there isn’t much information beyond that. We also have a post on Egypt Defense Portal that has this to say about the technology transfer (Google Translate)-

After the announcement by Lubomír Kovaíík, the head of Czech small arms manufacturer Česká Zbrojovka CZ during a press conference in February with the Czech newspaper Deník, that Egypt had begun negotiations with the company to transfer manufacturing technology For the CZ 807 double-caliber assault rifle (39 x 7.62 mm Soviet and 45 x 5.56 mm NATO), explaining that the conclusion of the contract depends on the results of the test of Egypt for the Venice current period and to complement the previous report we review the most important features of the gun and its technical specifications.

It must be noted that the 807 Bren is actually a dual caliber rifle, unlike the earlier 5.56x45mm NATO 805 that it is derived from. Initially comes with a lower receiver that accepts proprietary CZ 7.62x39mm magazines (and matching interchangeable barrel/bolt). These magazines are of note because they are direct insert and not at all compatible with standard Kalashnikov magazines with the “rock in” magazine release. Inserting a STANAG magazine insert allows the use of 5.56x45mm NATO magazines to used, along with changing out the interchangeable barrel and the bolt.

Le fait que deux armes se ressemblent ne veut pas dire qu'elles sont identiques. On présente souvent le VHS croate comme un FAMAS local alors qu'il n'y a pas grand chose à voir.

De toute façon, en matière d'armes légères, beaucoup d'armes finissent par se ressembler du fait d'une certaine standardisation (cartouches, rails Picatinny...).

Ceci dit, les chinois semblent avoir des Vector (18:30) et également 2 types d'étuis différents pour leur munitions.

Ukrainian Military Receives First M4-WAC-47s

Ukroboronprom, the state-owned Ukrainian defence concern, has confirmed the first deliveries of its M4-WAC-47 rifle to Ukrainian troops for evaluation. The rifle, based on the M4, is chambered in 7.62x39mm, earlier information had referred to the weapon as the M16-WAC-47.

In an end of year statement one the company’s progress in developing and delivering a variety of defence contracts ranging from small arms to armoured vehicles, Ukroboronprom confirmed that :

"the first batch of M4 – WAC-47 has already been handed over to the representatives of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the National Guard and other law enforcement agencies for conducting comprehensive tests, which are a prerequisite for adoption."

The M4-WAC-47 will be manufactured in Ukraine but was co-developed with the US-based defence company Aeroscraft. The new rifle is a response to Ukraine’s geopolitical situation. With the ongoing civil war and the continued use of ComBloc weapons, including small arms chambered in 7.62x39mm, and the countries desire to further integrate with NATO. The M4-WAC-47’s response to the Ukrainian military’s need for weapons chambered in both 7.62x39mm and 5.56x45mm is to offer a rifle with the modulairty to chamber both rounds. This is accomplished by switching the rifle’s upper receiver, which Ukroboronprom claim, can be done in less than 20 seconds in the field.

Back in January 2017, when the project was first announced, it was stated that the WAC-47 would be available in a variety of barrel lengths including: 10.5″, 11.5″, 14.5″, 18″ and 24″. From the most recent available photographs the early examples of the rifle appear to be outfitted with an MLOK hand-guard and a Magpul MOE pistol grip and CTR carbine stock, whether these furniture choices will continue once in full production remains unclear. The rifle also uses what appears to be a proprietary magazine rather than a standard AK-pattern magazine. This limits the use of widely available AK magazines in the region and indicates the designer’s priority to ensure the lower also feeds from 5.56x45mm STANAG magazines. It’s planned that the M4-WAC-47, once adopted, will be issued to both Ukranian Ground Forces and the National Guard.

Un bel exemple de gabegie politique ...

Dans un pays à l'économie ruinée et en guerre civile qui pullulent d'AK-47 et AK-74, ils investissent pour sortir un nouveau fusil d'origine américaine (sous licence ?) sans aucune pièces communes avec l'existant (dont les chargeurs ayant pourtant le même calibre) et utilisant des composants importés !

Quand on voit que les américains, riches et en paix, ont depuis des dizaines d'années des nouveautés technologiques importantes mais ne considère pas comme rentable de changer de fusil et de calibre, on croit rêver.

C'est simplement une façon de montrer son allégeance aux Etats-Unis en adoptant une arme américaine. 

D'autres le font avec des F-35.
