  • Patent number: 11740049
    Abstract: A recoil brake for braking recoiling masses of a barreled firearm, comprising a hollow cylinder, which has an interior filled with a fluid and having a high-pressure side and a low-pressure side, a control rod arranged in the hollow cylinder, which has an end connected to the hollow cylinder, a piston rod surrounding the control rod, which is arranged within the hollow cylinder for movement in an axial direction of the hollow cylinder, a piston being formed on the piston rod, which is arranged for displacement in the axial direction and which fluidically separates the high-pressure side from the low-pressure side. A distance by which the piston is displaceable in the axial direction is at least as great as the recoil distance of the recoiling masses during a passage of a bullet through the barreled firearm.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 10948254
    Abstract: The installation space dimensions of a weapon system in the tower are complied with, and a loading space diameter of a caliber-larger weapon barrel is approximately maintained in relation to the smaller caliber. The required larger loading space volume for the caliber increase is predominantly achieved by an extension of the loading space of the caliber-larger weapon barrel relative to a loading space of the caliber-smaller weapon barrel itself. Since the loading space diameter of a larger caliber remains virtually unchanged, the outer dimensions of the caliber-larger weapon barrel also remain virtually unchanged compared to the outer dimensions of the caliber-smaller weapon barrel in the region of the loading part.
