Brandon takes us further on the AK-50 development journey. Where the failure points are. Where improvements has been made. Where they are noticing the rough prototype giving them data they didn’t even think about.
Even knowing numbers, evening having projection models and CAD, nothing beats live fire testing (ask the British on the SA80) and working out the various human factors that are largely unaccountable in a prototype computer model.
There isn’t something that is going to account well for a cold soldier sitting in the snow with a rifle like a soldier doing just that.
Now with the AK-50, probably not an issue they need to consider specifically (but not one they should dismiss).
